1940s Epiphone made Eddie Alkire E-harp

Recommended Posts

I have, in its original case, a 10 string lap steel E-harp. It was made by Epiphone (and possibly their first signature piece?) For Eddie Alkire.


Currently it is diassembled, but complete. Neither it or its case is much to look at right now as is but once restored its value is in the $800.to $1500. Value range depending on the quality of work put into it.

So I wonder.. invest a few hundred dollars in restoration or place for sale as is for $300.00 obo?

I don't personally play but would like to buy or trade into something like an electric/acoustic archtop,a fat hollow body electric like a Broadway elitist or Emporer... or even a solid top a/a&e.


Any thoughts?.. potential buyers/traders?
