Description

From the beautifully inlaid headstock to the "Frequensator" split-trapeze tailpiece, the Broadway Hollowbody electric guitar has been part of Epiphone's line of guitars since it was first introduced in 1931. Aimed at working jazz musicians, the Broadway is one of the quintessential examples of what a "jazz box" should be, with great sound, quality material and fine workmanship. Loaded with new Alnico Classic humbuckers and equipped with classic Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, the Broadway is a solid platform for serious jazz, from grooving to bopping to just tearing up the fingerboard.
