A particularly rare piece, a 1953 Epiphone Century in natural (commonly in Sunburst). This is a particularly clean guitar with really only finish checking to show its age, it does have a few dings and some wear but nothing that truly detracts from the guitar. This instrument has under gone some minor changes, one side of the tuning peg heads (not the tuning machines) have been replaced, the pickguard and the strap end button is non original. Sadly the original headstock face plate has disappeared but the info inside the sound f-hole tells us everything we need to know. This all maple archtop box has got that chunky neck that is synonymous with the 50's and has its original lush sounding neck pickup which would be great for a more mellow application. Otherwise comes with a period style hardshell case.
