The guitar is in overall good condition. There's plenty of lacquer checking, chips in the finish, buckle rash and usual signs of wear. The original 'New York' pickup has been replaced by a Shadow Attila Zoller pickup, which sounds great! It has an ebony adjustable bridge inplace of the original rosewood one. Currently set up with round wound 11's, the action is low and very comfortable.
This is a classic jazzer from the Epiphone's golden era. Introduced in 1950, the Zephyr Regent was Epiphone's most popular electric cutaway guitar. Epi's journeyman 17" instrument, the Zephyr Regent was positioned against its main competitor, the Gibson ES-350.
