The Epaulette is a Pheo Hot Rod transformation of an Epiphone Elite Les Paul, the very earliest and best made of the Elite/ Elitist series, built in Japan. This guitar is African mahogany with a full depth Eastern hard rock maple top, and a traditional long neck tenon...gibson doesn't even do this anymore. The builder stripped the poly finish and the flame veneer, replacing it with a very thin oil finish...I prefer this to any kind of lacquer. It lets the guitar give off its natural sound. The pickups are a vintage DeArmond single coil at the bridge and a vintage Gibson Melody Maker single coil in the neck position. These pickups matched the resonance of this highly resonant body better than humbuckers and give it a truly unique voice. Finally, the stoptail has been replaced with a string through anchoring system similar to a fender, also to enhance the guitar’s already exceptional resonance, detail and sound. This guitar is very alive acoustically ( you can feel the neck and vody vibrate when you strum a chord) and has a unique, very fun and one of a kind voice. This guitar sounds absolutely amazing and wouldn't be selling if I didn't need the money. $85 fixed shipping. Thanks for looking and
