Scored this one this past Saturday from Craigslist! its #127. V3
I have a v3. Great guitar.
I bought my first Epi about 6 months ago. A firebird reissue. Its pretty sweet. Just sold an Ibanez artist and looking at LP models. Crazy there are so many to choose from.
I settled on either an Elitist, or 1960 V3 anniversary model. That one sounds like my style. I had a Gibson 72 Deluxe with the baby humbuckers just like the ones on my Epi Firebird. I am looking at the Epis Les Pauls now.
I also own two Ibanez 70s Les style guitars a 77 2350 and another a 76? Got the blonde body and rosewood headstock. They play well but don't have enough sustain to make me smile. It could be the chambered body or the bolt on neck too, but they are pretty.
I hope to get a V3 for about 500 or less, looking all over the net.
crazy! My car broke down on the way to work. Sitting home and I found the guitar I wanted online.
Just ordered it. Got a great price, can't wait to get it and see how it plays. Looks like a good one....
thanks! can't wait to plug it into my old Fender..
IMHO, the best Burstbucker combination Epi has put out.
Here's my #231.
LP came today. Strings were horrible, so I immediately changed to DAdarrio XL.
Wow the thing plays and sounds great. My pedals are at a studio, so I plugged direct into a Palomino V16... love this guitar! It needed the strings and oil on the fingerboard..
Happy man. Got #149
took the LP to a rehearsal, running it thru my V16 it sounded totally awesome. I also use a Vibrolux and its equally rich through that amp.. Glad I found this forum, or I wouldn't have known to buy this guitar
F307216 Is my serial #...Does this mean a Korean factory and 2007 build?
or is it F = Fujigen - Origin - Japan. They are known for especially well made guitars.
I thought these were built later
edit added_ I just saw the guitar dater web site and found this
Your guitar was made at the
Fuji-gen Plant, Japan
Production Number: 7216 So its even earlier than I thought...good to know
You can see a list of F serials here:
The 1960's were a 50th anniversary thing so made in 2010.
^ Beat me to it. ^
Oh I see now that F is not Fujigen ...well seemed good to me for awhile. But the guitar is very sweet wherever it was made...
I have been searching the net for one of these Cherryburst V3's. Have any of you guys seen one for sale?
Still looking for a Cherryburst V3, Prolly gonna be a needle in a haystack. They only made 1960 of them? I heard that's the V1 and V3 combined? I'll just keep on lookin
Yep, and they made way more V1
I found a Cherry Sunburst V1 on Ebay. When I punched in the serial number it came up as being made in 2003? If it was a 50th anniversary model wouldn't that be 2010 (1960-2010)? This is the ONLY one I have seen that has the punched in the wood serial number. All the others have this weird sticker over where the serial used to be. I am wondering why a lot of them on Ebay say they are refurbished. What? are they taking the good pickups out (Burstbuckers) and putting different ones in there place. Maybe I'm being too paranoid. It's not like I'm buying a $8000 True Historic. The guy only wants $700. Anybody else have one of these or know more about them? Thanks
