For customers residing in Japan
We are pleased to announce the arrival of a very rare museum-quality item, an Epiphone brand "Recording B", which is believed to have been produced in very small quantities between 1928 and 1931. We have determined that it was made in 1928 based on several documents and materials.
Epiphone, a well-known banjo maker in New York at the time, released the Recording series for jazz and proust players. It features a unique body shape with boldly cut treble sides and a pearloid face banjo head with a leaf design.
Spruce top, 3-ply figured (bird's eye) maple back (arched), 25" scale, body width is about 14-1/8" (35.5cm), body thickness is about 3-7/8" (9.8cm). 3-piece maple neck, nut width is about 44mm. Neck is 3-piece maple neck, nut width is about 44mm, and the neck shape is thin "C" shape.
The bridge is probably the original rosewood bridge glued to the top (the saddle is not fixed to the bridge).
There are some cracks on each side of the fingerboard on the top of the body and at the center of the top near the bottom of the bridge. The head perloid veneer was warped significantly at the time of purchase, so it has been glued and the gap has been filled. There are other external damage commensurate with the age of the instrument.
The neck is in excellent condition, with a lot of original warping and forward warping, and unfortunately, the playability is not good enough. The guitar was originally designed to be played in the low position or with a bottleneck to enjoy the blues.
This vintage guitar is not for players, but it is very rare item that you may not find it in the future.
Vintage collectors, why don't you take this opportunity to add it to your collection?

ミュージアム級の超レアアイテム、エピフォンブランドとして1928年~1931年の間に極僅かな本数のみ生産されていたと思われるRecording B(レコーディング)が入荷いたしました。いくつかの文献、資料などから1928年製と判断いたしました。
ニューヨークで当時バンジョーメーカーとして知られていたEpiphone社が、ジャズ&プルースプレイヤー向けにリリースしたRecordingシリーズ。トレブルサイドを大胆にカットしたユニークなボディシェイプ、リーフデザインが施されたパーロイドフェイスのバンジョーヘッドが特徴的です。
スプルースTop、3プライのフィギャード(バーズアイ)メイプルBack(アーチド)、25インチスケール、ボディ幅は約14-1/8インチ(35.5cm)、ボディ厚は約3-7/8インチ(9.8cm)です。3ピース・メイプルNeck、ナット幅は約44mm、ネックシェイプは薄めの"C"シェイプといった印象です。
ブリッジはおそらくオリジナルのローズウッドブリッジでトップに接着されています(サドルはブリッジに固定されていません)。
ボディTopの指板横それぞれ、Topセンターのブリッジ下付近に割れ修正跡がございます。買取時にヘッドパーロイド突板が大きく反りあがっていた為、接着および隙間埋めの作業を施しました。その他年式相応に外観ダメージはございます。
ネックコンディションは、元起き&順反りが顕著で、残念ながらプレイヤビリティは十分とは言えません。元々当時のギターも現在のアコースティックギターメーカーのようなセットアップは難しいかと思われますが、こちらのRecording Bもローポジションで鳴らすもしくはボトルネックでブルースを楽しむなら・・・といった弦高です。
プレイヤー向きのヴィンテージではございませんが、今後お目にかかることがあるかどうか・・・と言うほどの激レアアイテムであることは間違いございません。
ヴィンテージコレクターの方、是非この機会にコレクションに加えてみてはいかがでしょうか
