This is the perfect swing box hailing from Epiphone in New York. The 16.5" lower bout provides a great bass response with nicely rounded tone. The neck has been reset at some time with a shim, creating a very nice playing instrument with plenty of room on the bridge to adjust the action. All of the hardware is original, but it is missing the heel cap from the aforementioned neck reset. There is plenty of checking throughout, repaired cracks on the treble side f-hole and on the bass side towards the bottom, and a nice little chunk was taken out of the peghead overlay for good luck. The finish is all original, with some poorly executed repair to the finish over the repairs on the top. The binding is in great shape with little shrinkage away from the side, but is still flush with the top and back. The 1 5/8" nut width is very comfortable with a lightly V'd neck that rounds out around the 6th fret. It plays very well, and the frets seem to be original with plenty of life in them. Comes with a chip board case.
