Other archtops

Aside from the Historic Epiphone Archtop Collection, the museum displays some other historic archtop guitars. Until now the museum purchased ten other archtops that are all of particular interest.

The Bohmann as an ancester of later carved archtops. The 16 inch Gibson L-5 for being the archetype of all archtops. The Seville 4 Special as a preceder of the Epiphone Masterbilt series. The Electar and the Century as examples of the first Epiphone electric archtops. The Howard and the Sorrentino because they are Epiphone made. The Stromberg as an example from an individual archtopmaker in the same time-period. The Gugino for its unique design of a neck through the body and the Kay for its violin shaped body and headstock.
