    Does the last #2 60xx EGC have similar features like the first two with doweled tenons ?

    Do cavities and other features look similar to the 1980 EGC-500 in the chart I posted here http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/oth...guitars-defy-catalog-specs-3.html#post5464610 ?
    Just wondering, because the 4 guitars in that comparison appear to range between 1980 and 1982. :hmm:

    I have a 1982 EG59-45 #2 3731 and it looks totally different from those ones. The wiring channel is straight in the lower bout drilled from the mortise and the tenon looks different. I don't know if that is of interest as I think it is the same way that that some of the customs were done at the time. Need pics?

    It is not a curve ball Mats made Epi's during the early 80s.

    EDIT: you beat me to it John :)
