Epiphone Zephyr Regent Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1953

The Epiphone Zephyr Regent is a full body, 17.375 inches wide, built using Maple laminates for the top, back and sides for feedback resistance. The neck is Mahogany with Rosewood for the wooden bridge and bound fingerboard.  The position markers are slotted Mother of Pearl blocks,  perhaps looking forward to the markers found on the later Epiphone Howard Roberts model.

❗️Sold❗️ Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1991

The Gibson Byrdland thinline archtop electric appeared in 1955 and represents a functional adaptation to traditional archtop electrics. Two top Nashville session players, Billy Byrd and Hank Garland were approached by the Gibson president, Ted McCarty for ideas on new products. As busy players, Byrd and Garland wanted a shorter scale length of 23.5 inches to allow complex, extended chord shapes.

Reduced❗️ Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

Reduced❗️  Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

The Fender Jazz Bass used the same proven Fender construction, with an Alder or Ash body and bolt on Maple neck. At 1960, Fender was learning how to add Rosewood fingerboards to their necks, and this was partly to win Gibson players over. The Jazz Bass had the new ‘offset’ body style, and a pair of single coil pickups. The earliest models used two concentric pots, each controlling volume and tone for one pickup. This soon gave way to the modern layout, of two volumes and one master tone control.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop with Venetian Cutaway Sunburst, 1975

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop with Venetian Cutaway Sunburst, 1975

This Gibson Byrdland dates to 1974 and was built at the Gibson Nashville plant, and carries the Venetian cutaway. It is in overall good condition though the original case and pickguard are gone. This guitar has been used as intended, so it has some wear, dings and dents. The finish has some natural checking, and fingernail marks around the treble volume control. The frets are fairly low but still playable. The electronics and hardware other than the volume / tone knobs are original. The tuners are gold-plated Grover Imperials with metal tulip shaped buttons, and of course the engraved Byrdland tailpiece is there.
