About This Listing

The guitar is in excellent condition and although it was played quite a bit, it has only minor dings and bruises that can hardly be seen. Brutal Gibson pickups (490R/498T  with split coil function) and 24 frets make this guitar an excellent shred machine in a beautiful traditional outfit. 2012 was the last year Epiphone made this model with ebony fretboard, and in my opinion, it really adds to the speed and the feel of the neck with overall better look of the guitar in general.
I must mention that this guitar was repaired at one moment because the headstock broke and that's the only reason for a lower price. It was fixed by an excellent luthier and there are no visible signs of the break. The neck was painted by a matte lacquer to match the original neck. Other than that, there are no issues with the guitar whatsoever and everything on it is stock. I've been using it as a backup for a long time and it has never failed me.
These guitars are equipped with high quality hardware, but the only thing I would change on it (never got around to actually do it) is the nut. It should be replaced with a better one in my opinion.
The guitar comes with its original Epiphone case that isn't in perfect aesthetic condition (quite a few bruises can be seen on the pictures) but it's fully functional and all the locks work. Strap locks (that are actually quite good) come with the guitar also. It is ready to play, with low action and set of rather new Elixirs (gauge 9).
For any additional info or photos of the broken headstock, please contact me, I'll be glad to help!
