Vintage Pre War 1937 Epiphone Olympic Electric Guitar New York :
For your consideration is this 1937 New York Epiphone Olympic serial number 11990 in rough condition with great potential. The super interesting pickup and knobs are probably after market and they do work well with good output and bandwidth, the volume knob works perfectly the tone knob turns but doesn’t provide any tonal change when doing so as the capacitor has fatigued. Also more unfortunate is that someone has added a cutaway to this guitar. We assume that this being from the estate of the famous bandleader, arranger and writer Howard Lucraft that it may have been him. Howard Lucraft was a prominent and well know Hollywood personality in his day, there’s much internet data on this wonderful man who apparently knew just about everybody with celebrity in the early years of the Hollywood jazz scene. His vast career afforded him the opportunity to work with such jazz greats as Billy Holiday, Count Bassie, Art Pepper and many others. We are selling several other instruments from his estate on now. The cutaway is made of what looks like Brazilian rosewood and has a homemade appearance to it. The rest of the guitar is pretty rough with plenty of scratches and dents, the binding is falling off everywhere but the guitar is structurally in tact for the most part. The neck is slim with some relief but is fairly straight for a non-truss rod instrument; the original frets are intact and usable. The instrument retains some of its old parts including the tuners, the tailpiece, and the bridge. Also included is a Howard Lucraft business card and other vintage paper as well as a rough vintage case. Good luck!
