Far left. Bought in 1974. It sat in our basement for over a decade before I remembered its existence.

Here's a pic of the blue tag - indicates Kalamazoo - but this is an MIJ Matusmoku with a bolt on neck.. its in really good shape, no neck damage.

Looks like the twin of my FT-134, though I had the adjustable bridged replaced with a fixed and had the action lowered. What do you think yours is worth? Know anything about when they were made? I guess yours is '74 or earlier, I've heard the 134 was made from 73-75 and the blue label means 73. Unfortunately the "number" line on my label is blank, as is the line headed "Epiphone". I haven't learned how to post photos yet but I will as soon as I can.

And shame on you for keeping her locked up in the basement! :sick:

So, what's the difference between an FT-130 and an FT-134? I can't see one from the pix. Ah ha: the pickguard is a teardrop shape, whereas my 134 has the type that goes farther toward the neck. What else, I wonder?
