Vintage Early 1970's Epiphone ET-270 Electric Guitar

Not sure of the exact year. These were only made a few years in the early 70's.This is the same make, model, and color as the guitar Kurt Cobain used early in his career. This guitar was made in Japan. Has the original trem bar included. Very few blemishes. See pics.

According to the original ad, here are the specs. Has what appears to be a brass nut. I will restring it for you with a brand new set before shipping.

Double Cutaway
Cherry Red Finish
Hardwood Adj. Neck
Rosewood Fingerboard w/ Dot Inlays
Two Pickups
Toggle Switch
Tone Switch
Volume and Tone Control
Chrome Plated Hardware


Also comes with the original case as a freebee. The case is pretty rough. Someone has customized the inside with foam and there are rips and tears in the chipbaord..  If you decide to fix up the case a bit, it is very punk, Cobain(ish) :)

Please see pics and ask any questions you may have. I'll try my best to answer them.
