Description

This 1938 Epiphone Broadway recently in on consignment! 

Made between 1931 and 1939, the upscale Broadway model features solid black walnut back and sides which results in a tone that has more midrange and top-end projection that maple bodied archtops - and let's face it, it's pretty stunning visually as well. 

This guitar is in amazing condition - there are no cracks, repairs, or dings to speak of. Though the finish has been oversprayed, it was very well done and adds a nearly new appearance to this 79 year old beauty. It's exceptionally playable and the setup is spot on. The frets are in great shape with little wear due to a previous level, recrown, an polish.

Simply put, this Epiphone Broadway is ready for another 100 years of playing! Priced with hardshell case.
