are there any old men out there with an epiphone FT-150

Recommended Posts

I'm still playing the same epiphone my darlin gave me the money for in 1978. It came with an adjustable bridge that cracked of course and I had it replaced

. This baby came to life and with Martin light strings she's a winner. My nephew has a $1600 Taylor and my son a Martin and they both admire my guitar. Wouldn't trade them straight up. Epiphone FT-150. I think 78 and 79 are the only two years the Japanese got it right. Any comments?

Not a 150, but the cheaper 145.

 

The FT150 was an upscale variety. I'd love to get my hands on one. Towards the later run of Japanese made FT Epis, they were making them so they wouldn't explode.

 

If a 30 some odd year old guitar is what gets your heart humming, then that is the one you should play.
