Values for 40's era Zephyr Regent...

Recommended Posts

I just saw a couple of 40's era Epiphone Zephyr Regent guitars on ebay. I've never played one but they are beautiful guitars.The ones I looked at were in the $5500 range.

 

Any ideas on a realistic price range of these beautiful instruments ?

 

Thanks![cool]

I've seen 40's 50's zephyrs that need a little bit of work go for 1200-1400. Most sellers want something like 2200 for them, but that's high. The vintage guitar magazine price guide 2010 edition, probably the most reliable source, says 1200-1450 for the standard Zephyr, 1400-1800 for the Zephyr Regent (Zephyr with a cutaway). Higher prices for naturals than sunbursts, and of course (original) condition is everything.

I agree with teegar. The last one in good condition to sell in this neck of the woods was originally priced at $2,900 and ended up going for $2100.00.

There's a '53 on ebay in Australia right now asking A$3,500!
