This guitar was made in Japan during the 60's and 70's. The Epiphone ET 270 was played by many popular musicians all over the world. It comes in a shiny Red pearl finish and sounds great. It has a very commercial sound too it like you use to hear in the punk rock music of the early and mid 90’s. So if that is the sound your looking for try this guitar out.


Sounds pretty thick, with great sustain when played in clean, Screams and makes you want go crazy when played with distortion Just an overall great tone and sound that comes out, even on the easy to reach top frets.


What I like most about it is the range of distorted tones you get. I'm not entirely impressed with the clean tones but that may be because I have other guitars that fit the ticket better, I'm sure plenty of people would be be happy with the clean tone. I also like the bass boost which I consider to be very unique however the bridge set-up makes the guitar very hard to work with sometimes.


I bought this guitar on eBay a few years back, it caught my eye and the price was right. I don't regret buying this at all, and I would highly recommend this guitar to anybody who liked to play punk rock. I paid roughly 300 dollars for the guitar where sometimes this guitar will sell for several hundred more dollars due to the sheer rarity of this guitar.

Overall, the Epiphone ET 270 is a high quality guitar that is in demand right now. A lot of musicians are actually looking for this guitar which is making it very rare because its hard to find. If you come across one for under 400 I say get it as soon as possible because the price will rise. The Epiphone ET is becoming a collectors guitar.
