Here for sale is one of the coolest things I have ever had in the shop. This is a WWII era Epiphone Archtop that has had quite a story. Judging by the pickup, it looks like someone installed a Gibson Dogear P-90 in the 1960s. They also cut an access panel in the back for easier wiring. Sounds incredible, like a ES-125 or similar 60s Gibson Hollow, and the batwing pickup skirt looks so rad!
This guitar is in on consignment from a new local customer of mine. He is a retiree and quite a character! Like all my consignments, this item is being sold “as described” regardless of condition. Absolutely no returns. (See my shop policies for more information.)
More recently, this guitar was fully restored by a member of the Larrivee luthiery team — the member who did the resto is the consignee’s relative (Son-in-law or Step-son, I think he said?) and has asked to remain anon….but the work is TOP NOTCH. It was obviously refinished, and the knobs look to be replacements, but the overall restoration package is REALLY well done!
This guitar plays WAY too good to be older than my Grandma. Come get it before I buy it for the personal collection!
As always, I cleaned it up, polished the finish, flushed the electronics, changed the strings and set the action low and smooth. This guitar comes with no case or gig bag, but I will likely find a cheap case or gig bag just to protect it during shipping and I pack my guitars up tight and insure every package for the full purchase amount.
Got questions? Shoot me a message, I love nerding out with other gearheads!
