My only Epiphone is a '92 MIK Les Paul - nice guitar with some upgrades. I popped in to a pawn shop Friday for just a few minutes and looked over a 2014 Epi SG and was surprised at how nice the neck carve was and the general feeling of the guitar - it seemed a significant improvement over others I'd seen. I didn't have time to really look it over in detail, but remember it had humbuckers in rings and trap inlays also. I thought initially it might be an Elitist as the script of the logo looked a bit more rounded, but I took a pic of the serial number and looked it up later - made in 2014 in China. Had some nice looking Grover tuners on it too. Are the newer ones a lot nicer than a few years back?
