1967 Epiphone Texan – £1999

SOLD  This guitar is a great example of a Gibson made Epiphone, during the time when Gibson had bought Epiphone and both brands were made under the same roof in Kalamazoo Michigan. It’s arguably Epiphone’s most famous flat top model thanks to it’s association with the Beatles. It’s also a classic 60’s workhorse guitar. The Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides give the guitar a rich warm sound, and the slope shoulders give a wonderful rounded bass, yet well balanced in the mids and trebles making it a very versatile guitar. Visually the dark cherry sunburst top is still vivid, contrasting beautifully with it’s amber centre. The neck feels comfortable, and the low action makes the guitar a treat to play. It’s in good condition, with lots of light playwear and lacquer checking, all original with one repair on the back of the headstock – it looks like a scratch but may once have been a crack, it’s been done so well it’s difficult to tell. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.

NEW ARRIVAL  Gibson’s LG0 is the lesser known cousin of the LG1 - a 00 sized, ladder braced acoustic, but with a Mahogany top rather than Spruce. The tone is smoother and warmer than an LG1, and what it lacks in attack it makes up for in sustain. The guitar works...
