1964 Epiphone Bard 12 – £1299

Famously played by Roy Orbison on ‘Pretty Woman’ , the Epiphone Bard is probably the best known acoustic 12 string. Made in the Gibson Kalamazoo factory in the early 60’s before Gibson made Epiphone their budget brand, it is the equivalent to a similar period Gibson B-45-12. Tonally it has a rich sound, plenty of bass balancing out the sweet mids and trebles – a real room filling sound. The guitar is in all original condition, with only minor play wear, and has a very playable neck and easy action. It comes in a non original hard case.
