Here for sale is a rare 1970’s Epiphone ET-270 in a gorgeous Cherry Burst made famous by Kurt Cobain of Nirvana on the Bleach era of the band. This guitar has been set up for left handed play, with a reversed nut and an extra strap button on the lower horn, exactly like Kurt’s. This can easily be put put back for right handed play if you prefer. The guitar has also been upgraded with sturdy tuners, a vast improvement on the originals and have cool looking stars on the back of them.

Other notable players include Billy Idol who has used these live and in music videos. The guitar is a bit like a Strat Gibson 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 one volume one and one tone control, and a bass boost switch for extra bass enhancement and a three way selector switch in a convenient location on the bottom of the pick guard. All the electronics are workings they should.

The guitar has some other interesting features such as the bass boost switch to give some more welly and nice retro control knobs that are period correct but may not be original.The handy knob position was 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. The guitar is in good condition for its age, with the odd chip or ding but this just gives it more rock ‘n’ roll character. There is slight ding on the back of the neck but this doesn’t affect playability. The pickup surrounds have some small chips and the lower pick up had split but has since been securely glued back together. An all around great guitar that looks bad ass and sounds fantastic. Just love this finish!
