In 1927, Epiphone dropped the Dragon banjo line, and the new "Recording" series began with an abbreviated "alphabet" motif. The new models were Artist, Alhambra, Bandmaster, Concert, Concert Special, Deluxe, Dansant, and as seen on a previous page, the Emperor. Pictured here is a one of the middle ones...the Concert Special, made in white holly wood. The five ply fingerboard is faced with mother of pearl Pyralin. The position marks and peg head are hand engraved and tinted in variegated colors. The wood inlay has elaborate designs of colored marquetry. The serial number of 6306 would mean a production date of about 1928.
