Vintage Epiphone Cortez Acoustic, Dearmond Pu, '65 Ft-45, Gibson B-25, Kalamazoo For Sale

Vintage Epiphone Cortez Acoustic, Dearmond Pu, '65 Ft-45, Gibson B-25, Kalamazoo

You're looking ata vintage 1965 Epiphone Cortez FT-45N, well made by Gibson in Kalamazoo MI. This is their 00 model, the Epi version of the Gibson B-25N, LG-3. The guitar originally had Gibson's plastic bridge of the day, but has now been given a new rosewood bridge w/bone saddle, as well as a vintage 60s DeArmond pickup w/volume wheel, nicely reconditioned a few months ago by 's DeArmond guru. These old DeArmonds are highly sought after for their vintage tone and cost a pretty penny. The pickup is angled in the soundholeso thatthe strings line upover the six magnetic poles.

The guitar isset up to playfast and smooth; it sounds woody, bright and punchy unplugged, and Lightnin' Hopkins' bluesy with theDeArmond in gear. Intonation is perfect, as good as I have heard on a Gibson. Common wear spots on the fretboard show evidence of having been filled long ago, and the frets may have been re-done then, too, as they show only minor wear. Original Gibson finishis checked overall and thereare some old dings and scratches, but no cracks other than a 1/2" surface hairline between the lower corner of the pickguard and the bridge.The neck angle is good; action is excellent, like playing an electric. Plastic bridge pins have been replaced with rosewood to complement the rosewood bridge. The original Kluson tuners have also been changed to new Kluson Tone-Pros, the "official up-grade"--and these tuners worknice, about 5 times better than the original Klusons ever did!

The guitar's top is a solid, well aged, even grained Sitka spruce; back and sides are solid big leaf mahogany (about to put on the endangered list). The nut measures 1 11/16" and the scale length is the shorter 24 3/4", making for easy playability. The width at the lower bout is 14 5/8" and the depth at the butt is 4 1/4". It comes in a new World Tour Deluxe gig bag, and will be well packed in a guitar box for shipping (see my seller response).Insured shipping to the states is $55 and $99 to selected countries abroad. International buyers are responsible for any duties, as well asthe difference between the maximum insurance to your country(usually $650, but much less to the UK since ParcelForce) and the actual sale price of the guitar. Sales are final, so check the pix and ask questions if you have any. Payment is due within 48 hours of the sale's close.

This vintage Epiphone has aGibson soul thatshines throughwith or without amplification!

I'LL PUT UP A VIDEO NEXT WEEK, SO YOU CAN SEE AND HEAR IT IN ACTION.
