1940s Epiphone Triumph Archtop, 17" Wide, Spruce Top, Maple B/S - USED - SOLD



(USED) Sometimes called "The poor man's L7" the New York-made Epiphone Triumph is a big old 17" acoustic archtop with 3 1/4" body depth around the rim.  This kind of guitar has a lot of volume and projection, and is a favorite for swing and early jazz players.  

This one has a spruce top, maple back and sides and a sunburst finish (with one of the weirdest spotlights that we've ever seen on the back!)  It has a long 25 5/8" scale length, with narrow 1 5/8" nut width and 2 1/16" string spacing at the saddle.  It has a bound rosewood fingerboard with arrow inlays.  Compensated rosewood bridge (not original) and split trapeze tailpiece.  

Condition on this one is good overall, with a few long repaired cracks in the top and a few dings on the neck.  Original tuners in good condition.  Frets appear replaced and are in very good condition.  Includes non-original hard case.
