1961 Epiphone Caballero Acoustic in Brunswick GA for $250

Very cool little Mahogany Epiphone acoustic - just like an LGO or LG1 - excellent fingerpicking and blues guitars.

I've never seen that type of headstock on a USA Epiphone - but this certainly looks like a USA guitar to me. Sounds like it has some minor issues - not perfect - but what a deal.

Up for sale is my vintage Epiphone FT-30 Caballero all mahogany acoustic guitar. This is the same guitar as the Gibson LG-0.

Has a rare 4 digit serial number (8510) and metal Epiphone headstock badge, which dates it to 1960-1961.
Plays well with a nice full sound for a small-bodied guitar, which is what these guitars are famous for.
All solid mahogany. Good action. No buzzing. Frets in good shape. Neck is straight. Good original tuners. Stays in tune nicely.
Comes with original chipboard case. Has plenty of checking in the finish, which is to be expected in a 50 year old instrument.
There are a few tight age cracks in the body, but they do not affect it's playability or structural integrity. Also, it does have one spot on
the back in the lower bout area that looks to be a stable old repair. I have had this guitar for over 5 years and it looks and plays just
as good (or better) now as when I first got it.

Right now these guitars are going for $350 to $850 on eBay.
I am offering mine for sale locally at a lower price just to avoid the hassle of packing and shipping and eBay fees. Price: $250.
