The guitar is very rare with the original natural finish. Amazing teak. Wonderfully warm yellowing. The beautiful tortoise guard with raised epsilon. The guitar plays well with good action & nice original jumbo frets. The Texan has the adjustable rosewood bridge. It's in great shape with strong color. The frets & fingerboard are in nice shape. This is a popular model flattop in a rare finish. It has a nice original soft case.
The Epiphone Texan has been the choice of countless musicians including Paul McCartney, Peter Frampton and Noel Gallagher. In fact, McCartney wrote and performed one of the most recorded and popular songs ever, "Yesterday" on his Texan. Jimi Hendrix also owned and used one of these guitars. Bought from Manny's in N.Y.C.. Explaining that it was his favorite acoustic.
It all starts with the classic sloped-shoulder or Advanced Jumbo (AJ) shape. Unlike ordinary dreadnoughts, the Texan features a more rounded upper bout and a larger lower bout with a subtle waist. Resembling a bell shape, this leads to a more balanced tone with shimmering highs, deeper lows and clearer mid-range that's perfect for singer/songwriters and other solo performers. The Texan features a premium solid Spruce top with a solid Mahogany back and Mahogany rims. Solid woods resonate beautifully and only improve with age. The neck is standard 1 9/16th inches solid Mahogany topped with a Rosewood fingerboard adorned with the parallelogram inlays.
GUITAR HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED AND SETUP WITH NEW STRINGS. SAFELY PACKED.
