Vintage 1941 Epiphone Olympic Archtop Guitar, OHSC, Need Some Work, Nice Project

    Here's the run down....

This is another guitar that has been hanging on the wall for years, that I never did anything to, and I finally decided to change the scenery.   Its a 1941 Epiphone Olympic that's in fairly good shape, but has had a few modifications and needs some work to be right.  I'm basically selling this for parts or repair although it can be played as is sits if your not picky about the upper scale and enjoy playing vintage guitars.   These models had some kind of truss rod end that commonly broke off.  It has on this one, and because of this the truss rod cant be adjusted without someone welding a nut or means of turning the rod to the end of the shaft (pictured).   If you do that, the neck should straighten right out and bring the string height where it needs to be.  There are other minor issues pictured, so take a look at all..  It appears that at some point someone installed MOP inlays in the finger board and headstock (see pics).  It could have been over sprayed at some point, but if so, it would have been long long ago, and   I honestly cant tell if it was or wasn't.  There are some minor cracks, lots of checking, dings, chips and scratches here and there.  It is what it is I guess...

The original case is in rough condition, but it is the original.  Take a look at the pics for cosmetic detail. 


This guitar will be properly packaged and shipped with the case shown.
