Named After the Street of Dreams! For over 80 years Epiphone archtops have been the first-call for musicians looking for timeless sound and classic style in one guitar. During swings golden age in the 1930s New York City was the music capitol of the world and the capitol of the archtop guitar world too. Artisan luthiers and old world craftsmen were plentiful and many instruments from that era are now serious collectors items including classic Epiphone designs like the Emperor Regent De Luxe and Olympia. While most New York City archtop builders retired from the business or ran for cover when rock and roll hit Epiphone never stopped refining the classic designs that made Epi Stathopoulo the king of archtop manufacturers. Epi was determined to make distinguished and great sounding archtops with quality materials that were affordable to working musicians. He insisted that a great guitar belonged on stage not on a wall in a glass case. So Epis Epiphone showroom on West 14th Street in Lower Manhattan put the leading guitarists of the day like Les Paul and George Van Eps in the shop window to show the world that an Epiphone was an affordable work of art. Like its famous sister the Epiphone Emperor Regent this guitar is a direct descendant from Epiphones early archtop days and the “war” between then-fierce-rival Gibson and the Stathopoulo brothers. Today the Broadway remains the guitar of choice for many acclaimed jazz pros including the award-winning Nick Colionne. These Little Guitar Blues Are Melting Away This Manhattan monster is voiced by two Alnico Classic™ Humbucker pickups on a multi-bound maple body with select Spruce Top for great projection and classic warm tone. The 25.5″ scale neck is made from Hard maple and features a rosewood fingerboard with Epiphones signature “block and triangle” pearloid and Abalone inlays. An adjustable floating rosewood bridge combined with Epiphones authentic Frequensator split-trapeze tailpiece provide a classic look feel and sound. Great Electronics! With individual volume and tone controls for each pickup Epiphone equips the Broadway with full 1″ potentiometers for smooth feel and long life. The Broadways electronics include an all-metal pickup selector switch and heavy-duty output jack. But even though Epiphone has outfitted this guitar with all of our best electronics its massive size and sound chamber gives this beauty tremendous acoustic volume “unplugged.” Epiphone Hardware With gold hardware and a multi-bound headstock featuring Epiphones gorgeous “Tree of Life” headstock inlay the Broadway is sure to be noticed on stage. And nothing says “Im a guitar player” like a beautifully made archtop guitar. To ensure great tuning stability and accuracy the Broadway includes premium 16:1 ratio Grover® machine heads.
