    if you played it you would change your mind, this is a sad sale, its a blooming classic, sounds better than many v high priced guitars i have owned, including a few vintage 60 and 70s guitars

    i have a maple scroll. use it exclusively in this band:
    England in 1819 on Myspace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

    I tried regular LP's with the band but they were always
    harder to play smoothly and didn't have the tone that
    the scroll has. i can lock in one setting on the scroll
    and never have to to touch the guitar controls while
    only using pedals to change my sound.

    the guitar is incredibly sweet when using pedals, not
    sure why this is. (i basically use an overtone pedal and
    a deluxe memory man for delay)

    it has more TONE controls on it than an LP due to
    its having a little toggle switch that is some sort of
    cut deal which at one setting delivers an almost acoustic
    effect which is pretty sweet.

    it is also a very lightweight guitar for the monster tone
    it produces. (i run 13's on the guitar and it hardly ever goes out of tune.
    though bending strings is hardly ever used in this particular band)

    anyway, the other posts were mentioning the LOOK of the
    guitar (which i consider last i guess) so i wanted to mention
    a few things about its tone and its versatility.

    if somebody has a black scroll they wanna sell i would
    definitely be interested.

    Hey Randy.

    That's a pimp guitar. Where did you get it? My mom got me one back in the day.

    I am desperately looking for one of these. Especially one with the block inlays. If you have one for a reasonable price, let me know. I have one that is in near perfect condition, but I'm looking for another.

    I have a mint SC450, maple finish, like in the first pic's top of thread, i dont know how to play so it just sit's in the case, has original epiphone case which i've read is rare, because the guitar is long.
    Maybe someday it will help me retire....

    Kinda cool.. but it looks like something I'd only be able to rock live if I was headlining at a Medieval Times Fair.

    Ahh my mate has one of these, identical to the one in the second post. Looks like a hippos backside, weighs a tonne and has to be kept in a bass case because of being abnormally long.
    It does however play really nice, and sounds good too, and that's what really matters eh?

    Just bought a black 550 after playing it and loving it at Trygar Music in Vandergrift, PA. Here's a pic: Trygar Music - Guitars_Epiphone-Black

    No, the looks are not for everyone, but it's somewhat in the tradition of German carve guitars, like Mosrite, early Ric's, and Roger. Regarding playability, those of you who dissed it are missing a great axe.
