Designed in the height of the big-band era, the Epiphone Triumph has always been a favorite for players wanting maximum bang for the buck. Built with the same materials, scale length, and body design as the upscale Broadway and Deluxe models, the Triumph delivers all the sound and feel of the most costly guitars in the line.
An original New York Epiphone, this instrument is powerful, bright, and easy to play. A transitional design, she sports the graceful prewar "snowflake" peghead inlay. A fine example free of cracks, with some pick, buckle, thumb, and fingerboard wear, the guitar is crafted with birdseye maple in the solid carved back. Hardware is all original.
