This 1961 Epiphone Texan is an outstanding early example of this majestic guitar, first introduced in 1958. It features the small Epiphone headstock, a vibrant sunburst finish and unparalleled playability. The tone is exactly what you'd expect from an early Texan, warm, booming and subtle at the same time. A few more years into the 60's, Paul McCartney would make the Texan his choice of acoustics on many of The Beatles hits, including "Yesterday". This one sounds even better, if you can believe it!
Body: Mahogany sides & back, Spruce top with a Sunburst finish.
Neck: Mahogany neck with a Rosewood Fretboard.
Setup/Playability: Amazing "Skinny" style neck with low action and excellent fret life. Truly a classic guitar!
Cosmetic Condition: Great condition. Very early Texan with the small Epiphone headstock. Some checking on the top and sides. The mahogany on the back has a stunning pattern.
Modifications: The saddle has been replaced. The nut may have been replaced, but we are not positive.
Weight: 4lbs 7oz

That is me in the above video demo of the 1961 Texan... This is absolutely the best sounding acoustic I have ever played! The tone is full and loud though delicate while finger picking. This model is earlier than McCartney's and if you can believe, the tone is better! Made in Kalamazoo and with it's perfect aging and checking, this Epiphone Texan is a magical guitar!
