Three Epi Deluxes on Ebay

Yes, that is right, no less than three specimens of what some consider to be the best ever factory-made archtop. My dream is to one day be able to amass the amount of money that is required to buy an Emperor, but I got to admit that a Deluxe wouldn’t be a bad second choice.

OK, here is, first, an appr. 1932, 16” Masterbilt Deluxe. Overall very pretty (note the front and the back of the headstock), but with some ugly damage to the finish near the left f-hole and a repair to the back. It will be interesting to see what price this rare and beautiful guitar ends at. Second, here is a 1940s Deluxe, and, third, here is an extremely clean example from 1946.

    I drooled over that blond ’46. I played one at Mandolin about 9 yrs ago that I wish I had the 3800. for back then. Just oen of those guitars that fit like a glove.
