This Epiphone is absolutely a cannon! Not only because the Beatles played this exact guitar model… it sounds sooooo stunningly beautiful, looks absolutely cool and plays fantastic.
This guitar sounds better than many of the Gibsons of the 60s we had and it is an incredibly cool old vinatge player.
Epiphone was purchased by Gibson in 1957. Gibson moved the company from New York to Kalamazoo and for many years Epiphone produced basically the same guitars as Gibson, only under a different name and with a slightly different look.
Musicians like Paul McCartney of the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, to name but a few, made these guitars world famous.
This beautiful epiphone-Texan is from 1963 and is basically the same guitar as Paul McCartney’s 1964 Texan.
It has a beautiful open vintage sound. From the look alone the expert can see that this guitar is something special.
When you hold it in your hands it unfolds its full charm – growling basses and a soft vintage nuance in the overall sound. The sound comes woody and spreads an almost mystical atmosphere.
At the same time the guitar is very well balanced and offers the most beautiful timbres.
It is very easy to play and has a straight neck with a low action and well preserved frets.
Obviously the guitar has been played a lot over the years and has got the irresistible vintage look. Absolutely beautiful is that apart from the wear of play and use, only two small repairs have been made on the back and the guitar is otherwise in an original and good condition.
It comes with the original case.
