Epiphone EA7P Electric Guitar Vintage 1963 Serial #126140 with amp
Offered today is a NOS (New Old Stock) Epiphone EA7P dating back to 1963. It has a beautiful red finish that looks incredible. Most importantly, there are no cracks and no repairs. There are no dings or dents on the guitar at all. All of the binding on the body and neck is in perfect condition – no separating, no splitting, bridge 100% intact just like new, etc. Remember that this is an unused guitar.
Serial number is 126140 and is inked on the back of the headstock and on maker’s tag. The maker’s tag with serial is still intact and is very clear and legible in the sound hole.
Guitar also includes the original case.
As you know, this guitar came with it’s own matching amp in either of two sizes. The sellers has both amps and has determined that the smaller of the two is in excellent working order. The larger of the two is believed not to work.
This Epiphone is from the Professional line.
According to research that I’ve done: “A strange bird indeed. All amp controls are on the guitar, and it requires the matching amp to be fully functional. It is usable with other amps via the 1/4″ jack on the top of the guitar (to utilize the matching amp requires a special cable plugged into the guitar’s multi-pin jack). There is one volume and one tone knob and 5 tone switches (giving a lot of tone variations for a one pickup guitar), which work through the 1/4″ jack. The other controls on the guitar control the reverb and tremolo on the original matching amp and are as follows: one on/off switch for the reverb and one for the tremolo, one rotary knob for controlling the amount of reverb, one for controlling the amount of tremolo and one for the speed of the tremolo. So essentially the guitar is fully functional without the matching amp, aside from the treble/reverb functions. But a bit too weird for most collectors, and with the single pickup being in the neck position, this scares away most players.
16 1/4″ wide, double round cutaways, fully hollow thinbody, 1 mini-humbucking pickup, triple bound top, single bound back and fingerboard, single parallelogram fingerboard inlays, 24 3/4″ scale, Frequensator tailpiece, tuneamatic bridge, royal tan or red finish. Came with a special amplifier. All amp controls on the guitar’s black/white/black pickguard with 7 switches and 5 knobs. Symmetrical pickguard covered almost the whole top of the guitar.
Introduced in 1962, discontinued 1967.”
