This 1965 Epiphone Olympic Double in Cherry is here on consignment. It is in very nice shape for its age, though it sports dings, dents, some weather checking, all the typical stuff you'll find on a guitar that has been played but treated well along the way. The neck is straight and the truss rod is functioning. The original frets are still intact but they are low at this point. A refret will be required for it to play at potential as it's just about at Fretless Wonder height right now. That said, I forgot how fun it is to play a guitar with frets this low! This thing smokes!
The Double Version of this guitar comes with 2 pickups instead of just the bridge pickup in the single version. All the onboard controls are doubled as well so the layout, feel, and functionality feels familiar to any Gibson player. These Epiphone Single Coil pickups sound very cool.
The body is made from Mahogany as is the neck. The fingerboard, however, is made from Brazilian Rosewood, which we all know sits atop the tonewood conversation. The piece on this guitar is brighter in hue than some other pieces and features some beautiful way grain and a slightly marbled look.
We did not get the original case back with the guitar though we did receive a gig bag. That bag will be included with the sale of the guitar.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
