Epiphone FT-140
folk guitar


the handle is great easy pleasant.


that mean? it is now more than thirty years and I always use it with the same pleasure for her and her handle nearly as thin and comfortable than a maker.


Well I'm probably not objective (this guitar has never left me since I was fifteen years) but what a great instrument! Guitar is actually more like a soul, a unique guitar what ...

Epiphone FT-140
Epiphone Guitar factory in Japan in the 70
Corp. standard dreadnought shape (style martin or gibson) mahogany and spruce
trs handle especially for an acoustic guitar because it looks more like a handle and is electric viss.le handle has a 20 fret 0 frets mounted on a rosewood fingerboard


The neck is super nice, it's quite late (as electric) strings are close to the key (even with thick ropes you did not saw the fingers unlike some guitars down current game)
The handle being screwed Access in acute enough ais Despite the lack of cutaway


I love the sound of this guitar, it is TRS balanced (may be also the strings of deep draft), or slamming or draft in the lower and he certainly did not challeur a martin ... gue rapelon but it was originally a guitar down game


This is my father's guitar so I use it since I started the guitar, but I've never lass and I would be very unfortunately if I lose, for me nothing can replace

Epiphone FT-140
Dreadnought shaped guitar made in Japan.
Bolt with 20 frets.
I got it from my father who had long left the barn so if it is allowed 20 years to become rotten dust mechanics and spin round but hey sil it maintains it's a great guitar.
I can not put a note because I have not even received new or in good condition.


A very nice handle and the access to acute, well it's no cutaway so ...
Also as I received the old handle is twisted so I can not say nous
Otherwise good ergonomics while being electric guitarist I find it quite big.


With this guitar I play acoustic ballads and folk (Bob Dylan!)
The sound is simply magnificent, it is of extraordinary quality.


I use very little else but for 2 years.
What I like most: HER!

Epiphone FT-140
Mine is really old, I think it had been purchased in the early 70s. At the time Epiphone was a park in itself and not the sub-brand of Gibson, I think this is the model or very near that McCartney used on the double white album Beatles (tbc)
It is somewhat marked by time but it adds to its charm of course!

Accuracy, this model is "Made in Japan" as is marked on the label inside.


The handle is very nice, it looks much like a Gibson electric stick, not too thick of course, the veneer of this time is more "adhesive" than now, but it's not a guitar made for walking to any speed up and down the neck in my opinion!

access is more acute than average, as many guitar flok!

Mine was a little martyred in ancient times, someone was having him up very large strings without setting the handle because the soundboard is a bit distorted, but it does not seem too wrong for that!

Given his age, the mechanics are really tired and I think has to change, yet they still fulfill their function a lot and this guitar does not go out of tune too often Nipone proof of the quality of the time.


I love the sound of this guitar, warm and velvety treble out well too, she quickly becomes friends with one who plays it.

It was he who had before I played a lot of picking her top and sound of this model lends itself perfectly to this style.

I noticed that those who use it a little time to play on the looks with great respect as they refitting, it is a sign that never fails ...


I did well to buy it at the time, despite sounding a little distorted.
Mine is an old model, I do not know if all of this quality but if so, do not hesitate to buy one from OCCAZ because it must not be sold very dear and very nice sound ; Once the mechanics changed a little weaklings, it will make an excellent guitar very endearing.
