    Hello folks, nice to see you all! This came up locally for sale and need a second set of eyes on it, sorry only pics I have at the moment, more coming soon. It has SD's in it for pups. The tuners have been swapped out as well. Not sure of the serial # yet, I've requested and will get pics soon. Anything seem odd about this cute thing?

    Thanks everyone!

    Bridge, tailpiece and switch also have been swapped (should be gold)! Other than that, I don't see anything odd!

    EDIT: Ask for the weight if you have back problems! All of my MIJ Epis (excl LQs) where from reasonably heavy to heavy as hell!!

    I thought they were still going around the 700 range, so what he's asking is a steal yet. Thanks. Hope to have pics in a few days if i can get to it before it's sold on me.

    That looks like a nice guitar.

    I would go and try it :)
