Here's a nice Epiphone, which is branded "Epi" on the headstock, Stratocaster style from the 1980s/1990s with a full black on black look, stock single coil pickups, and 21 fret maple fingerboard.  Although not a Fender Strat, do you think David Gilmour would like this axe? Quite possibly. Plug it in and see for yourself.    There are 3 stock, single coil pickups and the guitar has all of its original hardware. One tone potentiometer  had to be replaced. Axe has the typical Fender style 5-way tone switch, one volume knob & two tone knobs. The guitar also includes the original black tipped whammy bar.

 All of our instruments are in complete, working condition. This instrument was professionally inspected, repaired as needed & given a pro set-up by DiPinto Guitars in Philadelphia -- so this axe is ready to perform! 

 Instrument is in Very Good++ condition, in our opinion. There are some small scratches and dings on the back of the guitar and on the sides that are hardly noticeable. Please see our photos.  Minimal repairs were done to get the guitar in full working order. Repair wise, one tone pot needed to be replaced, the nut was lightly filed so as to tweak & set the guitars' intonation, and instrument was set up with Ernie Ball Slinky 10s'.

**SPECIAL NOTE: It is with a very heavy heart that we wish to share the news of the recent passing on
Dec 6, 2020, of our almost 12 year old red & white beagle, our beloved Ace. He was our mascot and namesake of this shop on He gave us the initial inspiration to sign up with, primarily due to the name that we chose to use on this fantastic website. He was also the chief of security & official greeter for our bricks & mortar shop, always ready to engage with the customers; tail wagging, always happy & forever on the lookout for any ingestible treats that our customers wished to share with him as well as a nice butt or belly rub.
   Ace is, and will continue to be, very sorely missed by all who knew him. Our shop will never be the same without his presence. But, his intense spirit and joie de vivre lives on, through our loving memories of him and also via this wonderful platform online. Love the heck out of ya, Acie!!

Sadly, Ellis

If you are contemplating making us an offer on this or any of our other varied listings, please be fully prepared to follow through, pay for your item and consummate the deal if your offer is accepted by us. We have been hit hard lately by offers from buyers with little or even zero feedback or inexperience on this selling platform. These buyers never paid for their purchases.  Obviously, we would rather this never happen again, but sometimes it will occur no matter what our wishes are. Thank you for reading this far and for your patience and understanding as well. And, in the immortal lyrics from an early Steve Miller Band tune, “You gotta keep on keepin on”!
