Product Description

Vintage classic returns with Art Deco design, “Blade Humbucker” and gigbag
                    Epiphone presents the Electar Inspired by "1939" Century Lap Steel Outfit, a one of a kind reissue of the Art Deco styled Hawaiian lap steel guitar originally designed by Herb Sunshine, Epiphone’s legendary salesman, electronics developer, and a good friend of founder Epi Stathopoulo.

“Epi’s father had brought over their Greek traditions from the old country and Epi was just carrying on where the old man had left off. They had terrific pride. Epi personally examined every guitar and banjo,” Sunshine told Epiphone historian Jim Fisch “We called electric guitars and amplifiers “Electar” which is a name I coined
