Aside from the fact that we're huge Beatles fans, we love the Epiphone Texan for its unique, underdog status. Essentially a Gibson J-45 with a Martin scale length, Texans are typically great, crisp sounding guitars that will punch in the same weight class as any more-popular flattop of their era. Sure, if you want to settle down for the night with a little "Yesterday" on the couch, a Texan from this era has THAT SOUND (Mr. McCartney's guitar was a '65). But the Martin scale length makes Texans underrated flatpicking guitars; and they excel in open tunings as well. This particular instrument is a first-class example of the model, in excellent, original condition save only for a bone saddle installed in place of the original plastic one. You'll find the expected lacquer checking and dings, but this is a very clean 57 year old guitar with wonderful tone. If that's your wheelhouse, and you're looking for a slope shouldered dreadnought, we invite you to call us for an in-hand description. Price includes hardshell case.
