Woodstock Guitars

The Spartan is one of the rarest Epiphone models from the brand’s golden age, built from 1934 to 1949. Renowned for its exceptional craftsmanship, rarity and distinct tonal characteristics, the Spartan remains highly sought after by musicians and collectors alike.

This 1939 example is in very good condition, with some wear showing it’s been used as it was intended, but no cracks or anything like that. All binding has been replaced at some point, presumably due to age-related cracking/shrinkage.

Finally, has a DeArmond Rhythm Chief pickup installed, which not only looks incredibly cool but also sounds great, and makes this guitar as usable today as it ever was. Includes non-original case.
