    Maybe the age, use, exposure to elements? I know some of the old Gibby SB are a greenish tinted over the last 30 years or so.

    That's true of the Gibson's but there's no way an Epi will ever turn green due to the poly and the paint they use now. The old paint oxidized.

    Hard to see in the pic but I think it's 5 ply binding on the front. If no one shows up with a pic of a known good one I will snag one when I get home tonight.

    Her's only has a couple or so stripes.Someone must have gotten carried away with the stripes on that other one.

    Seems like the original poster had a few more lines in the binding than the rest of us. Parawi will probably be along tonight to settle this for everyone. Great photo work everyone.

    Is it just me or does it look like the binding on the headstock comes down a bit to far on the neck? Maybe I'm just trying to find things wrong now, may be my imagination.

    Maybe it's me but those humbuckers look kind of narrow.
