1963 Epiphone Caballero – £1399

NEW ARRIVAL  With Epiphones being built in the Gibson factory from 1960 – 1969 until being transferred to Japan in early 1970, this 1963 Epiphone Caballero is the equivalent of a Gibson LG0 – a small bodied, ladder braced, all Mahogany acoustic. The guitar has a warm, mellow tone, handling blues and folk fingerstyle playing particularly well, and a surprisingly full sound when strummed. It’s in very good condition, the Mahogany body contrasting with the tortoiseshell pickguard and binding. The neck is comfortable with good playing action, and the Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard feels very responsive. There is lots of cool looking lacquer checking, plenty of wear on the back of the neck, and the original plastic bridge has been replaced with a Rosewood one, with bone saddle. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
