    Arrived today needing some love and a few tweaks- robbed the parts stash for black plastics, Tusq nut, and a set of zebra Duncan Distortions and left the pickguard off

    Should be a screamer

    A ostrich skin strap would go well with that IMHO.

    1014171427~2.jpg Sweet guitar!
    Samick made some high quality guitars for €piphone.
    I picked up a '99 Samick built €piphone Joe Pass Emperor 2 Hollowbody for $450.
    I changed the p'ups from €pi AlNiCo 5 Classics to Seymour Duncan APH 2's.
    It's one nice guitar. Handles Jazz to Nugent..
    Samicks rock. ;)
