Cheap and cheerful, yet great-sounding, great-playing, great-looking and becoming a great collectible!

This Epiphone FT-130SB Caballero acoustic is one of the original made-in-Japan (MIJ) Epiphones, after parent company Gibson shifted production there from 1970 to 1983. Serial number is 541436.

It's in remarkably good condition, with a few marks here and there, but nothing major. Neck angle and straightness is superb, and the adjustable bridge lets you set the action right where you prefer. This is a Spruce topped guitar with Mahogany back, sides and neck, with a Rosewood fretboard and bridge. This acoustic guitar is dead original, with no modifications or repairs. Play wear is virtually non-existent, with the frets, fretboard, neck and body showing negligible, if any, wear.

It's an attractively deep-waisted guitar, of OOO size (15" lower bout, 4 3/16" depth), and has a balanced, sweet sound. It's not overly loud or boomy.

It comes with a good quality vinyl gig bag, or I can provide a hard shell case at cost if you prefer (around $110-120).
