    I just acquired this guitar in a trade deal and I am super impressed!!!

    i will get some pics up -- hopefully tomorrow. But I need someone to help me out a little here. I can't get an answer from Epi/Gibby.

    What is the pickup switching on this? All solder joints are untouched....still complete factory wiring. And, of course the three pickups. Control knobs are reflectors with lables Volume, Volume, Volume and Tone.

    Other than a patina on the gold hardware, this thing is mint condition, no fretwear and georgeous sunburst finish.

    I have a Gibson Firebird V and the Epi compares amazingly well to it. Super impressed!!!

    This one has 3 Vol and 1 Master Tone. The switching is standard Les Paul type (B, both, N). The lower front Vol knob turns the middle pickup up or down in all switch positions. All solder joints are untouched. I can find no info at all on this guitar.

    BTW - the pickups are incredible....really sounds great.
