All original including original case; a unique and interesting 70s guitar, this Epiphone handles something like a cross between an SG and a Les Paul.

NOTE: If you are outside the UK and want to buy this guitar then please get in touch. Due to the rosewood used in its construction it will need a certificate before it can be exported.

Very nicely put together with a solid body with unique Epiphone design in cherry sunburst finish and a rosewood neck; two gold plated Humbucking pickups, two volume and tone controls with toggle switch; gold plated Deluxe stop tailpiece, multi-adjustable bridge, and machine heads.

For a 40+ year old instrument it is looking and playing very well indeed – great tone and a low action. Excellent, clean condition. Some minor signs of wear and age – click on the photos to zoom in and see more detailed shots. Please ask if you have any questions about this instrument.
