This summer we're celebrating over 80 years of the Epiphone Broadway, the strikingly beautiful and tone-heavy archtop for the ages which has survived hot war, cold war, peace, rock and roll, and the various (and tumultuous) ups and downs of Epiphone to emerge--triumphant, we might add--into the 21st century as superbly hip, still unique, and all-around unstoppable. Epiphone archtops have been the first-call for musicians looking for timeless sound and classic style in one guitar and the Broadway is the king of them all.
The Epiphone Broadway is the most professional and affordable way of getting the tone of--well--just about everything from late 40's jazz (think Oscar Moore, George Barnes), honky tonk country (Hank Garland, Chet Atkins, Zeb Turner), 50's rock and roll ("Johnny B. Goode," "Thirty Days,") 60's R&B (Smokey Robinson's "Tracks of My Tears," Sam Cooke's "That's Where It's At") and pretty much every modern take on rhythm and blues including Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings led by the superb guitarist, Binky Griptite
(shown at right with a vintage Epiphone Elitist Byrdland, very similar to the Broadway in sound and form).
The Epiphone Broadway features Alnico Classic humbuckers, a SlimTaper "C" profile neck, an Epi classic Frequensator tailpiece, Grover tuners, and a pedigree that no other guitar of our era can match. (It beats the Les Paul by two decades!)
