1959 Epiphone FT-79 Texan
So rarely do these come on the market. The pre-buy out blue label Epiphone FT-79 Texan. Always very stylish with great lines and colours, these jumbos have a lively, responsive sound that is different from any J-45, J-50 or D-18. Solid sitka spruce top with solid mahogany rims and back, rosewood board and bridge, it's all original excluding the tuners which were probably switched out sometime in the 70's. Beautiful sunburst finish (with possibly a bit of overspray) and that iconic Epiphone logo in the headstock make this a very special guitar indeed.
