Epiphone Cortez Repair Blog #1: Inspection

This is the first in a new series of repair blogs dealing with this:

This is an Epiphone FT-45 Corvez from the early 1960s, built in the same Kalamazoo factory as Gibsons of the era. It has mahogany back and sides, x-bracing, and a Sitka spruce top. It should have a screen printed Epiphone logo on the headstock but presumably this disappeared when the guitar was refinished.

The owner wants this guitar to brought back into great playing condition.

Welcome to our new website!

Yes, indeed: a new year, a new website! That’s the old saying. And if it’s not, it soon will be. We’re in the process of adding more stuff to the shop, and we have lots of exciting things in the works. Like what? Well!

  • Repair blogs (maybe videos if I can work out how to do that)
  • More unique, customised guitars with artwork by Naomi Randall
  • Merch!
