Gibson introduced a new Epiphone model in 1963 called the FT-90 El Dorado as a counterpart to its short scale Gibson branded Hummingbird. The El Dorado featured square shoulders, a long 25 1/2″ scale length, Mahogany back and sides, and a big but thin faux tortoise shell pickguard. The resulting guitar was a big booming strummer that held its own in a live band setting. That big pickguard really brought some attention too.
This guitar has been well played but in pretty good condition for it's age, (circa 1964) with one split on the back which has been professionally repaired. This guitar has that great woody tone and mid range that those Kalamazoo guitars are famous for but with the added volume and punch of the longer scale length. A great sounding vintage guitar with oodles of mojo to boot.
Comes with a hard case..
Larrivee's Traditional Series was conceived with two things in mind. Create an instrument with traditional 'vintage' features like a flat-top headstock, hand-carved volute, and diamond inlays. But at the same time maintaining the unique tonal balance of the standard Larrivée symmetrical parabolic bracing system. An enlarged soundhole allows significantly greater mid range punch, emphasizing the low end, and increasing overall volume. This 60 Series features Brazilian Rosewood, herringbone trim, traditional angled bone nut. The casted bronze open-back tuners feature engraved design work by Wendy Larrivée. One of the many fine details that put this series in a category of their own.
