I visited a guitar shop today and they had an old Epiphone ET-270 for sale. I tried it and it was beautiful to play.
The price was 3400 SEK (about $460). Is that a reasonable price? Any thoughts about the guitar? Do you think it will work well for slide playing? Wasn't carrying one at the moment so i could not try...

Probably, but remember you'd have to jack up the action at the bridge and the nut a bit to really see what it was like for slide, and I'll bet the shop would love that!! :lol:

Seeing that John is out of action for a few days, I thought I'd have a go at it for him :D .
How's this for a poor attempt :loon: .

Here's my poor attempt, I'm afraid it won't help likewise...

Ich glaube nicht, daß der Preis völlig überzogen ist, für einen Radfahrer. :lol: :lol:
Natürlich abhängig vom Zustand.

:rofl: :rofl:
(could not find anything for "iaf" :mad2:)

"I don't think this price fell off the buddy seat"? :no:
... and translation of Mozarts translation:
(Ich glaube nicht, daß der Preis völlig überzogen ist, für einen Radfahrer.
Natürlich abhängig vom Zustand.)

"I don't believe the price is completely overdone, for a bike rider.
Depending on condition, ofcourse."
...which in Dutch would be:
"Ik geloof niet dat de prijs volledig overtrokken is, voor een fietser.
Natuurlijk afhankelijk van de toestand."
... Babylon :rofl:

Kul med språkförbistringar :D

It was in good condition as far as i could see. The whammy bar may have been missing though, and that may be hard to replace?

Visst e det de,så vi ger dem lite mer att grunna på tycker jag Mattias.

Grejen e att med tiden har man ju lärt känna snubbarna ombord här,så det faller inte i alldeles fel klyka oavsett.

Om du inte sett det än finns det en jättetråd om Matsarna på gitarrforum.com
Ligger under recensioner.
Där finns åxå de flesta av landets Mats dårar,å en hel del samlad kunskap på ämnet.

Bulger.
Original phrase would be "I don´t believe that price is completely up the wall at least."

Mattias.
No matter as far as the wammy bar really as those are fairly easy to reproduce if need be.
I´d say that if the axe is in as good as shape as you say...pick it up and be done with it already.
What i CAN tell you is that they´re not getting any cheaper.

Fö.
Vi e allt en viking delegation ombord här åxå.
MAA(matsumoku abusers anonymous)-the viking chapter. :loon: :hyper:

Racing, are you abusing the Matts or are they abusing you (i.e. your wallet)? If the former, I run a shelter for abused Matts here. Please send them to me ASAP :D

Wow I got this one in before Jorg :)
