About This Listing

What makes this guitar special: Howard Roberts is the most prolifically recorded Jazz musician. Thousands of recordings bare his name. Guitar originally came out as an Epiphone. What makes the guitar special is a long-scale neck, accompanying a 16' Florentine cutaway body and a unique oval sound hole. The guitar produces a sound unique on to itself. Both stylistically and musically, this guitar is a note worthy professional instrument to be studied for archtop design for years to come. 

These guitars are brighter and spankier than their 175 siblings. 

Cosmetic condition: Great overall shape, with some light wear throughout. Obviously it's missing it's original pickguard which is a shame and is a factory second (I can't tell you why). 

Body: Body is in great shape. No obvious damage. 

Neck: Beautiful maple neck with an ebony board. 

Electronics: One beautiful humbucker 

Case: Original hard shell case included.
