|Title:||Gibson Epiphone Granada Guitar|
|Description:||An electric guitar.|
|Provenance:||Purchased in Kalamazoo, Michigan.|
|Appraised By:||Judith Katz-Schwartz|
|Appraiser Comments:||In 1924 Epaminondas "Epi" Stathopoulo, scion of a famous Greek musical instrument family, registered the Epiphone name in New York. In 1928, his company, The House of Stathopoulo, offically became The Epiphone Company. In 1957, Gibson's parent company, Chicago Musical Instrument, purchased the company for $20,000. Today, Epiphone is a highly successful brand of Gibson guitar.
Your E44T is Epiphone's version of the Gibson ES-120T. The serial number indicates that it was made in 1966.
Your guitar's cosmetic flaws will depress its market value slightly.
Since I am unable to examine this item in person, it is assumed for the purpose of this appraisal to be an Epiphone E44T archtop electric hollow-body guitar with original case, extra strap, extra Fender strings, missing "E" on the front of the guitar, and no other flaws whatsoever. The values provided below are based on these assumptions.
