FT-135 Epiphone Acoustic Guitar

Posted by John Carilli on Mon, 07/01/02 - 20:11:14.

I purchase this guitar NEW in 1975 and is in excellent to mint condition (very minor signs of wear).
It is before Epiphone was sold as a company and is the original quality.
What would it be worth?

Re: FT-135 Epiphone Acoustic Guitar

i saw one on ebay for about $200 for shipping with a couple of hours left for bidding. I guess it will go for about $259 when all is said and done. I believe ebay has the value at $265. Hope this helps.

Found my 1st acoustic Epiphone

In 1973, when the FT135's arrived at the music store, I played all 6 that arrived in the shipment! Picked the sweetest one. It was my first acoustic... played it at college coffee houses during the 70's... eventually lost track of it until last week. My youngest sister (50ish - don't tell her I said so...she'd kill me!) found it in her closet. Still has the same strings I put on decades ago! I'm putting on some Elixir's and hoping I hear the same sweet sounds of the 70's I remember...
