Dating my Epiphone FT145 TEXAN

I have had my grandfather's guitar for a while now and just wanted to find out more information. Not very familiar with all the guitar lingo though. I have am Epiphone FT 145 Texan, serial number 470605...it has 6 strings (I dont even know if thats standard, how embarassing :oops: I grew up playing the piano, never could get the hang of a guitar) States that it was made in Japan. Only thing I have found out on my own is maybe around the early 70s; but I heard there is no way to track the serial numbers of these models, I think its earlier than the 70s. Is there anyway to find out for sure? :)

best bet is going to be getting a hold of an appraiser or maybe convincing the local pawn shop to help you with information (no transactions of course)
