Greetings! Up for your consideration is a 1967 Epiphone Regent Triumph Custom Archtop guitar. I've had this Epi in my collection for the last seven years. This guitar came from a music store in San Francisco, the owner said it was 1 of 3 made in 1967 and belonged to a studio musician in the area. This Epi is a true beauty that has aged with a beautiful patina. I would consider this guitar to be in Excellent condition but those that have seen it, say more like museum quality. This is a true archtop guitar with a handcarved bookmatched solid spruce top, figured maple back and sides, solid one-piece Honduras mahogany neck, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with diamond mother of pearl inlay, adjustable compensated Brazilian rosewood bridge, pearl peghead inlay, five-ply top binding, bound back, fingerboard and headstock. Body size at the lower bout: 17-3/8', Scale length: 25-1/2', Neck width at the nut: 1-9/16'. Hardware: original hardware including nickel plated Kluson Deluxe tuners and Frequensator tailpiece, beveled tortoise pickguard, adjustable truss rod in peghead, vintage DeArmond microphone pickup (now with a Seymour Duncan mini humbuck installed in casing) with volume control and 1/4' jack. Note: the DeArmond microphone pickup just did not put out enough sound to truly appreciate the guitar plugged in. So I got with a sound technician who suggested sending the bobbin to the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop to rewind to mini humbuck specifications. It was the first prototype for Seymour Duncan which had to hand wind wire on a specia
