Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1947

The serial is ‘75194’ with the 75 being a prefix for this model and the ‘194’ its production rank; this serial scheme was used from 1944 to 1950. The top is Laminate Spruce, the back and sides Laminate Maple and the neck a five piece layup of Maple and Walnut.

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❌ S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, 1899

❌SOLD❌ S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, 1899

Shown here is a lovely S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, Grade 2 model, built around 1899 after Stewart’s death in April 1898.  The ‘Grade 2’ designation means that it’s a more advanced model, not that it’s a second.
This fine open-back banjo features the original tailpiece, friction tuners, a period Rogers calf skin head and standard dowel stick adjuster system. This is one of the few of these banjos we’ve seen that have all the original finish, hardware, tension hooks and name plaque complete and in place. Apparently the original owner, a Mr. AL M. Dodgson, carved his initials into the dowel stick — no doubt a hundred years ago or more.

Fairbanks or Stewart Style Open Back Banjo 1890's SOLD

Back when “men were men”, banjo makers boasted about how many tension hooks they used. Whoever built this banjo could not have crammed many more hooks into the rim !! At 38 hooks this must approach the world-record.
