  1. I was just gifted with one and have taken it into the shop for repairs. So, yes, to answer your question. Very much looking forward to playing it.
  2. Hi, I'm a budding singer/songwriter/guitarist who plays at Strawberry Fields, Central Park in New York. Happy to connect with others and to find a Gibson that's right for me. Maybe my SoundCloud tracks would give you an idea of what I'm after. https://soundcloud.com/user-426295887 I've just been given an Epiphone FT-150 and have taken it into the shop to get the neck reset. It's been helpful to read about those bolt-on necks here.

  3. I appreciate your comments. I took this into an experienced luthier and he'll be doing a neck reset and set-up for $150. I've been doing a lot of research on this model and while I haven't heard the greatest things about it, I'm curious to see how it will turn out. I'm more concerned about playability. If I enjoy playing her, she's a keeper.
  4. Hello,I've just been gifted with an Epiphone FT 150 BL. Does anyone have any experience with this beautiful guitar? It seems like the action is high even though the neck is straight (flat when I put a ruler on it). Should I adjust the truss rod to make it more back bowed? Or, do I need to rework the bolted on neck? I'd also like to know what strings would work best to bring out the best tone, as well as any pertinent information.Many thanks!Epiphone manufactured the FT-150 between 1972 and 1979. It was a Japanese-manufactured dreadnought acoustic guitar, this specific model being made in the midst of the Norlin “Square Label” era, suggesting this specific guitar was built between ‘75 and ‘79. It has a natural laminated spruce top, rosewood back and sides, a three piece adjustable neck, and a rosewood fingerboard with block inlays and a zero-fret. It has a decorative rosette, an adjustable bridge and chrome plated hardware. The mahogany neck is bolted on internally. This a sturdy, vintage acoustic that produces a good amount of sound. It is in great shape and shows wear that is consistent with that of an approximately 40 year old guitar. The action is decent but could easily be adjust even lower if desired. It just underwent and deep clean, fret-board conditioning, and restring and is ready to go! Includes the hard shell case pictured.General Specifications:Finish: NaturalMade in: JapanScale Length: 25.5 inches scale-lengthBack Material: RosewoodSide Material: RosewoodBody Style: DreadnoughtTop Material: SprucePickguard: Black Pickguard w/ Pearl “E” logoBridge: Adjustable RosewoodHardware: Chrome HardwareFingerboard Material: RosewoodFingerboard Position Markers: Pearl Block Inlays
  5. Hello, I've just been gifted with one of these and was wondering which strings to get for it. Thank you.
