This guitar was made in japan late 70s, the era of transition (Kalamazoo and Japan), icon of the folk guitar.
Epiphone FT is recognized internationally, "for a certain superstar this Epi FT130, FT30 heiress of the original kalamanzoo.
This guitar was found in the trash outside of my town in St Cloud 92.
Placed there, waiting for me, a broken head and missing.
Then I found a full round at U.S. $ 75 and after adaptation, various repair, Resolved, nine hooping it rings true.
Over time, I discovered this sublime guitar is awesome! the punch of this instrument ... I have a 1977 Martin D35, I can assure you that I had this guitar sounds fantastic considering its price at the time.

This guitar was made in japan late 70s, the era of transition (Kalamazoo and Japan), icon of the folk guitar.
Epiphone FT is recognized internationally, "for a certain superstar this Epi FT130, FT30 heiress of the original kalamanzoo.
This guitar was found in the trash outside of my town in St Cloud 92.
Placed there, waiting for me, a broken head and missing.
Then I found a full round at U.S. $ 75 and after adaptation, various repair, Resolved, nine hooping it rings true.
Over time, I discovered this sublime guitar is awesome! the punch of this instrument ... I have a 1977 Martin D35, I can assure you that I had this guitar sounds fantastic considering its price at the time.
Production with U.S. and Japan all made with the same specifications at the result
violin, make simple but effective by Epiphone Kalamazoo.
In line with the FT30 Caballero, who is originally (untouchable these days).

UTILIZATION

Lutherie 70 years of Japanese is fantastic, the table is simple and the handle is a incredibly easy to play, neither too fine nor too wide, perfect! freight rates are low with an action, but remains accurate in the game
The shape of this little guitar ditto the FT30 or Martin D28 ... a wasp waist and very balanced.
Access to acute is easy, and sounds more than well, this is a good place to those who master it.
Ergonomics is exceptionally lightweight and robust, it should not be afraid to play with the strength to make it sound is like a guitar that brutality in the game, she is alive.
A delight for guitar, this guitar is a myth "vintage" of nearly 40 years ...
A guitar that has its mythical (In line with the FT30 caballero) of good folk (Type D Martin 28),
this one not to lose.

SOUNDS

The sound is above all,
very hot, with aggressive, pure metal and not at all ..

Whether you play blues, folk, and even as an accompaniment, or traditional music in a way it will sound phenomenal.
The treble can be very dry, which helps to release into solos, rhythmic chords in blues, rock ... etc.,
the sound is sometimes dry and hot weather, you want to play it ... it's amazing ..
For solos, or jazz, it happens more than most ..
I read lots of reviews saying that the sound was fantastic, I confirm this guitar is rare,
yet sold a guitar on a budget, over time it is enhanced, and even became the icon of that era.
Epiphone for something you earn, all instruments were produced in Kalamazoo strong character,
Gibson knew, by getting all secrets and much of its makers.
It is this legacy which has made many professional guitarists use it in concert around the world .. it's amazing ..

OVERALL OPINION

excellent guitar, to advise all those who seek a true folk guitar of 70 years.
A very particular sound identity, it differs much from other models, and allows it to stand out with class.
I have lots of other models, Martin, Ibanez, Ovation, excellent, but too classy, ​​this style FT30, this simplicity, with a screw shaft 4 a box .... I love it reminds me of my old fender, strat, tele etc. ..

It beautifully accompanies the voice, the guitar class too, simple and beautiful! I strongly advice!
Others said "this is what I hold dearest in the world" and some will say that I need be.
yes but that's a beautiful animal .. my 28 guitars this is the cheapest normal ... I found it in the trash ..
Since I ride for all Epiphone "vintage" electric folk ... etc.

Guitar 3 / 4 very compact made in Japan or US versions as in the 70's, adjustable height easel. its very clear, very sharp resonances in the (natural révrb)

Paul McCartney uses it in some video - it is easy to recognize a classic-look with the € on the black plate.

Frabrique in Japan late 70's, it is already very very beautiful, and for me is the icon of the folk guitar internationnale. it is a myth! I'm 24 years old, this guitar belonged to my father before I was born (although he used only six times), I learned to play over 9 years ago, I use at least one hour per days (very least) I've never done RULES, and despite that the frets are still very good (no buzz as g have read a few times), and all notes, all of which ring true , none has dsaccorde over time, it's awesome! and yet the blows it received!

Frabrique in Japan late 70's, it is already very very beautiful, and for me is the icon of the folk guitar internationnale. it is a myth! I'm 24 years old, this guitar belonged to my father before I was born (although he used only six times), I learned to play over 9 years ago, I use at least one hour per days (very least) I've never done RULES, and despite that the frets are still very good (no buzz as g have read a few times), and all notes, all of which ring true , none has dsaccorde over time, it's awesome! and yet the blows it received!

UTILIZATION

The neck is incredibly comfortable, neither too late nor too wide, ideal! While Access in acute're not easy, yet it is not hard to make them sound. ergonomics is exeptional, it lets easily navigate, and very robust enough lgre (but do not martyr either!) Even if it takes a minimum of force to make it sound, because n ' is not a guitar for beginners although it has been the case for me, who's fate is legendary, I dtail below.

SOUNDS

Here is his strength that I prfre! Sound, not a blade mtallique, is above all very hot but still hides a great agressivit dedant (yes!). Whether you play the Beatles, the Stones, the dadi, agreements have the kinks heavy, classical, traditional music (I'm Corsican) or flamenco and reggae still (do not play in the goldman or palmas, it not love, she suffers) it will do a Manir phnomnale. Let me explain: I am a disciple of the LOW ... I'm serious served! play on the bass and it will not give serious pd (apprioris desolation), the low E is impressive (dsaccordez in the r and play the bass or the dear prudence of come together, you'll see it ' gift is!), it looks like an acoustic bass (some do not, certainly not me)! It has excellent natural rverbe, which RVer. The treble can be when they have very dry, which can be let go of a solo keith richard's Premire PERIOD ie very sharp or very rhythmic reggae arrangements. But move your mdiator or fingers toward the center and, to a dry one passes a very warm sound, you want to play the jeff beck PERIOD planing, ideal for solos lover! Or even jazz, but I too admit essay!
I read reviews that the sound was not great, I think we should take a trip to think mchant ca (but beware I respect)! So that his level of happiness (all my friends to scratch, the apprcient normment, yet they have ovations or Takamine, (not the same)). it is the hearts (ok I stop)

OVERALL OPINION

In DEFINITIONS, is a exellent choice this guitar, it differs much from other models by a very sound particulire identity, which allows it to dmarquer style. I tried many other models, Fender: not terrible, takamine: excellent but too classy, ​​not enough personal style, you want to dessuite a suit (that is my own opinion very subjective, attention), ovation: I do not like.
I RPET for the guitar that, in all objectification is the big quality it's not for nothing that Macca is one, surely! It accompanies a beautiful voice Manir (Whatever your tone of voice!) And again, it too the class, she is super nice! I very very strongly the council! that's what I hold dearest in the world with my b. ..! (And yet some will say that I need much, but it's like that, it Exceeds the more expensive it. Even though there are probably better, everything is relative)
ps: I work not for epiphone.
