1938 Epiphone Zenith Vintage Acoustic Archtop Guitar
Here we have a seldom seen vintage 1970's Epiphone FT-550 Excellente.This is one of the better Epiphone's coming out of Japan at the time. Looks and projects very much like a Matin D-35.In short, if you like the warm rich tones of a Martin, you would like the sound of this instrument.It has recently been set up with a new bone saddle which greatly enhanced the tone and sustain.Large body dreadnaught with nice jumbo frets and pearloid inlays on the fret board. Action is very low at less than 3/16 at the 12th fret and it plays easily. It's not mint with some dings but is in excellent condition with very minor wear overall(see pics).Bridge has a split but has held for many years and should for may more. All original condition.Beautiful 3pc. back with a curly maple center with exotic Jacaranda wings. No case included but I pack very well and if you prefer a case I can pick one up at Guitar Center a hard shell for an additional $90. Guitar is sold as is.
Why pay thousands for tone when you really don't have too ?
Rest assured I pack very well and have never had an issue. I ship UPS ground.International shipping is available (USPS). See shipping calculator for estimate.
