Vintage 1956 Epiphone Harry Volpe Archtop Electric Guitar.

A super rare, New York made Epiphone that sounds absolutely amazing. 

The pickup is to die for. It is very strong with a warm, clear and well balanced tone. The guitar has a round woody punch that sounds incredible.  It is super even and strong in every position as well.

The neck is fat and chunky with a c profile and a 1 3/4" wide nutIt has an amazingly comfortable feel and allows your hands plenty of space to work with.  

Plays allright with medium-high action.  It is playable for an experienced player but takes a little extra effort. It would benefit from a neck reset. 

Cosmetically it has signs of age that you could expect from any vintage guitar.  There is finish checking and other normal signs of wear that gives it some incredibly cool vibe.

Guitar is exactly as pictured.

Comes in a soft shell case.
