FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION OF MULTI-VOX GUITARS:

1958 Model E-725 “Scroll”

One of the most storied musical companies in America was the PETER SORKIN MUSIC COMPANY started in Philadelphia in the early 1930’s and migrated to New York City in 1935.  It was there (“Made in Manhattan”) where Sorkin started the “Multi-Vox” Company (MVC) to build amplifiers. MVC was very successful in the amplifier business and in 1946 started building the “Premier” line of guitars and amplifiers. And in the 1950’s Sorkin/Multivox/Premier purchased the STRAD-O-LIN company, which mainly built acoustic Mandolin, and moved its woodworking shop to a new location which now became the MULTI-VOX/PREMIER factory. It was from this factory that the first Premier solid bodies originated (also branded “Marvel” and “Bel-Tone”).  First models offered under the Premier included the “Bantam”-an acoustic electric guitar (incredible guitars) and then followed the iconic solid body “Scroll” guitars and basses.

These “scroll” guitars are my personal favorites.  They featured binding and sparkled pickguards and knobs.  And they were made of solid wood in the NYC MULTI-VOX/PREMIER factory.

This is hands down one of the coolest guitars I own.  Look closely at the photos to see how the “plastic walnut” changes color based on the reflection of light on it.  And of course any guitar with a scroll is extra cool.
