1968 Epiphone FT-90 EL Dorado - Sunburst

(No reviews yet)
Current Stock:

Just in! This super cool sunburst 1968 Epiphone El Dorado is all original and in great shape!

Rare color- the Spruce top on this one is beautiful and projects a shimmering, clear sound. Barre chords fret easily up to about the 9th or 10th fret and the action starts to lift off from there due to a slight amount of neck dive. The bridge was recently reglued and shows no lift, the braces sound solid with no knock or vibrations, and the frets look to have about 50-60% of their life left. The neck has two spots where it looks like the finish has melted a little bit. These are detailed in the photographs.

Includes vintage brown Gibson hardshell case.
