I have an Epiphone Nouveau archtop guitar - I've never seen one before, I can't find squat for price. The information I received from Gibson was that this model (NVJ-n) was designed by Gibson, made in Japan, and assembled/finished at Gibson USA, only between the years '87-'89. It first ran under the Gibson name, later under Epiphone.

This model is an archtop, full inlays and binding, with "Epipone" script and "Gibson" in 7-verticle layered diamond pattern, both inlayed, on headstock. Curly maple neck, back, and sides, spruce top, rosewood fretboard and bridge. All natural finish. All Gold hardware, single humbucker. Gibson case.

Anyone ever seen one of these? I can't find it in any price guide- any ideas on value? Thanks

The Epiphone NVJ

Do these have the 25.5" scale?

Thanks,

Re: Guitar appraisal

I don't know but I also have one but mine says Nouveau across the top and Gibson from top to bottom down the middle of the head. It sounds fantabulous. I bought it used with a genuine Gibson hard shell case and would not sell it easily. I, however, also would like to know its value.

Re: nouvea by gibson/epipohone model NVJ

Yes, it is the same guitar, made the first months before 'nouveau' was put in liue of 'gibson'. I still havn't found any more information. Ill post it if I find any.

There's one for sale on line for $1200US. I paid $800US 6 years ago.

I have had one since they first came out. Mine does not say "Noveau" on the headstock. A very nice guitar.
