What Haworth Guitars say:

The Epiphone Electar CENTURY 1939 Lap Steel Guitar is an awesome Lapsteel guitar by Epiphone.

At Haworth Guitars we love this Epiphone Electar CENTURY Lap Steel's mahogany body and neck, it's 1939 Art Deco design and the crisp-sounding Epiphone 500B Blade Humbucker pickup.



What Epiphone has to say:

Vintage classic returns with Art Deco design, “Blade Humbucker” and gigbag Epiphone presents the Electar Inspired by "1939" Century Lap Steel Outfit, a one of a kind reissue of the Art Deco styled Hawaiian lap steel guitar originally designed by Herb Sunshine, Epiphone’s legendary salesman, electronics developer, and a good friend of founder Epi Stathopoulo.

Herb Sunshine was one of Epi Stathopoulo’s key employees at the “House of Stathopoulo” headquarters in New York and helped to inspire Epiphone to become the leading name in affordable professional instruments. “Epi’s father had brought over their Greek traditions from the old country and Epi was just carrying on where the old man had left off.

They had terrific pride. Epi personally examined every guitar and banjo,” Sunshine told Epiphone historian Jim Fisch “We called electric guitars and amplifiers “Electar” which is a name I coined.”
