1958 Epiphone E312T Zephyr Thinline w Original Case!

Here is a very rare and early Gibson-made Epiphone Zephyr Thinline from 1958. This is one of the first Epiphone's made by Gibson. Epiphone was acquired in mid-1957 by CMI Gibson and in the next year or so they began taking orders for the new models at the 1958 NAMM show. This guitar was made in 1958. It features mostly Epiphone parts including the New York pickups, white pointer (carousel) knobs, bikini logo... The neck and body are the same as their earlier Zephyr Regent model but with the thinline body. John Lee Hooker used a model similar to this.

This guitar is in very good condition overall. It has finish checking, light dings, surface marks etc. It's over 60 years old but it's nice and tidy with no repairs needed. The guitar looks to be all original minus a few minor things: switch tip, pickguard, one capacitor, the tuners are newer, strap button, refret and neck reset. Again, everything is nice and presentable. The guitar plays and sounds fantastic. It's got a very nice and vibrant sunburst finish. The guitar comes with the original hardshell case as shown.

Weight: 6.2 lbs.
