What you are looking at is an original Epiphone Lauto from 1912', the instrument did not go by the name of Epiphone at that time. That did not happen till 1924, and before that they went by the family name of Anastasios Stathopoulos.

 

This was a very big and involved job, and I had to make the bridge, pickguard, re-machine the new tuners to work in the headstock, and repair many cracks, as well as put on the original type of finish which was Varnish, and Shellac. At that time they did not have Nitro lacquer, that did not come into use till 1920.

 

Next up is a Silvertone single cutaway thinline electric, with mini humbuckers that were made for the guitar by Gibson. I had to repair the pickup rings, as they were cracked and in rough shape, and make a new pickguard from scratch, as well as a truss cover too. Turned out to be a very nice guitar.
