Here's a 1943 Epiphone Ritz. Rare, small body archtop, from the original New York factory. Fantastic playing & sounding guitar, with a really cool tone. Clear, projecting, and articulate. 15 1/4" wide at the bout, flamed maple back & sides, cherry neck, and tortoise grain body binding! The maple back looks amazing in person!! Exceptional playability, with low action, and slinky string tension. A real treat to play. Everything is original except for the tailpiece. There's some crack repairs below each F-hole, while the rest of the guitar is solid. The guitar has a truss rod as well. HSC included!

Weight- 4lbs 9oz
Nut Width- 1.65"
