Epiphone Zephyr Emperor 1951 (consignment) SOLD

Epiphone Zephyr Emperor 1951 (consignment) SOLD

This is a great older piece. It’s in good shape and has a number of interesting features that show up in much later items. The pearl/abalone V block markers and extra binding inlay on the fingerboard appear on later and higher-end Guild guitars, such as the 1970’s Starfire VI. And the pusbhutton selector appears on many items, from Italian instruments to the 1950’s Dodge Torqueflite transmission. This is a big guitar from a time when volume was really needed, and the Emperor was the top of the heap. As a Zephyr, it’s an electric model, and the Vari-tone refers to the pushbutton selector.

Guild F47mATB SOLD

Okay, we all know that the sound of a guitar is its most important attribute. Then again, it sure doesn’t hurt to have a guitar that’s easy on eyes, does it? Well call me superficial, but I was in love with this Guild F47mATB before I had even played it. The best part is, it sounds even better than it looks! Everything I love about the F47R follows over to the F47mATB, but with a slightly brighter voicing. There is a hint more compression to the low end, giving the guitar a bell like ring that just sings. I never like to pick favorites (I think players should approach every new guitar with open eyes), but if someone were to twist my arm into naming my pick from the bunch, I wouldn’t not choose the F47mATB…… Cough, cough…
