does anyone know any info on


Recommended Posts

I found one of these in a pawn shop. He wants 200 for it. It has had the neck re-glued but it looks solid, plays good


Couldn't really find a topic with this model in the header




I always liked maple bodied jumbo box instruments. Had a wonderful 1973 Guild F50 once that was a killer guitar, wish I never sold that one.

What you have there is a jewel and $200 not a horrible price. I buy up every one of those pre Norlin blue labels I can find. Several of the ones I'll keep forever were snapped up in that price range, and I would love to run across a Jumbo. For the money, the old FT's are some of the best sounding knock around guitars out there.
