Here for sale is a rare 1970’s Epiphone ET-270 in a gorgeous Cherry Burst made famous by Kurt Cobain on the Bleach era of the band. Other notable players include Billy Idol who has used these live and in music videos. The guitar is a bit like a Strat SG hybrid and has a very distinct sound and produces other worldly feedback when cranked up. Check out the Nirvana Live at Pine Street Theatre in Portland Oregon on the Sub Pop Bleach reissue to hear this guitar wailing away in all its glory.
The guitar has some other interesting features such as the bass boost switch to give some more welly and nice retro control knobs. Used to great effect by Cobain on Bleach track ‘Big Cheese’ Where you can hear him fading the intro chords using the volume knob which is very easy to access with your lower fingers on this guitar. The guitar was made in Japan and still has the original serial number on the back which they used to tape onto the back of the headstock. All around great guitar that looks bad ass and sounds fantastic. Just love this finish!
