Vintage Epiphones of the 1930s
1932 Triumph Masterbilt
After the limited success of their Recording series guitars, Epiphone released a line of archtops in 1931 that more closely resembled the Gibson Master Models. The Triumph was part of that line, and went head-to-head with the Gibson L-7. The 25 1/2" scale guitar is 16 3/8" wide and features hand-bent rims, a dovetail neck-joint, three-ply binding, walnut back and sides, paired diamond inlays, and trapeze tailpiece.
