Epiphone Acoustic Guitar

Posted in musical instruments by admin on January 17, 2010

I am going to buy a used Epiphone Acoustic guitar (model FT140). The price is $150. Is it worth it?

here is the craigslist listing: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/msg/398943416.html

I am not sure how much this is if it was new. I want to know if $150 is a ripoff or not. Thank you

It is not a ripoff in the sense that it is a fair price for this guitar, assuming that their are no hidden defects (specifically, ask the seller if the action gets high toward the soundhole, or if the tuning pegs are loose - two common problems with this guitar). I own an FT-140 and it has a nice, middle of the road tone. I probably would not part with it for $150.

It may not be the best guitar if you are simply looking for the best guitar to learn on for $150. You are paying a bit of premium for its age rather than its other qualities.
