Here's a genius early 70s MIJ Epiphone ET-270T that everyone who picks it up seems to fall in love with. These guitars are totally under-rated and are one of my favorite Japanese imports. In fact, many of my favorite Japanese guitars came from the Matsumoku guitar factory. They just made some excellent instruments during the 60s, 70s, and 80s. These guitars have a really cool “bass boost” switch that totally increases the output. In catalogs it was labeled as a tone switch, but that darn switch really boosts the output! I’ve seen a lot of rhythm/solo switches that don’t seem to do too much, but this effect is profound! The pickups are really special, measuring out at a healthy 9.44k at the bridge, and 9.09k at the neck. This is the same model that was a favourite of Kurt Cobain, used in the ‘Bleached Years’ and featured in the ‘In Bloom’ video.
