Vintage 1964 Epiphone FT79N Texan with Original Case
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-04-16)
Price : US $1,702
Up for bid is an ultra rare 1964 Epiphone Texan FT-79N all original, not the reissue but the real deal. It was built in the USA not Japan. I am selling this for the original owner, who bought it new in 1965. I called Gibson to confirm age of this guitar was verified as a 1964 in natural finish just as Sir. Paul McCartney’s. With a very low number of these made in the natural finish. Most this guitars life from the looks of it has been spent in the case. The neck and frets show very little to no wear. The body showed some cracks I had it inspected by a master luthier that said the guitar was in wonderful condition for its age. All bracing is tight and I was told that the cracking around the pickgaurd was normal due to the shrinking of the pick guard not being the same as that of the wood. Over all he said the guitar was 100% sound and in better condition than most of it age and type. This guitar has an amazing tone and plays well but could use a good set up. Also included is the original case, it is in super shape as well for its age. Best of luck and happy bidding, on what I would call a piece of history.
I have done my best to be honest in the listing of this item, and I’m providing what I feel to be the best pictures to show the overall condition of this guitar. If you have any other questions, or would like to see any other pictures please ask. If you have zero or negative feedback or any questions please ask before bidding. PayPal only, I will only ship to the US or Canada all sales are final and as/is due to the nature of an age of the item. Payment in full is due in 3 days of auctions end.
