Hi folks, long time lurker, new member,
Right out of the shoot, I have some questions about a guitar I got at a neighbors garage sale, it was a free!
This guitar has a rather sweet sound to it for the the issues to be addressed. So I've come to the experts
for some advice. First this guitars label says it is a Epiphone 335 troubadour and as I said it has a sweet
sound that captured my ear. Looking it over when it was given to me I saw that it is likely in need of a neckset
the frets have been used but are still usable, the saddle has about ran out of room for much of an angle. It
does have a very tight top crack of about and 1" to 11/4" long and easy repair.
I guess the reason I asking I would like to get it up and running again. So I would be asking is it possible to
have the neck worked on, btw what type of neck joint is on it? If to save money I can cut a saddle and glue
up the crack. But setting the neck is where I would have to have the work done and I dont know value of the guitar.
Would anyone know that question, Im not out to make any money from it, I would just like to bring it back to life
I would like to ask any info about this guitar. If I could get it up and going I would make it my go to travel guitar
because it does have that old guitar sound and that s special to me. The people I got it from said it found in the
basement of the house when the got the house and that was more than 35 years ago. So it has some time to age.
Thank you very much for listening to my story and any info would be helpful.
