    I recently got on trade a epi paul that appears to be korean made. The Serial number is U5010769.

    According to guitar dating website it seems this is a 95 epi paul from the unsung plant. Asll well and good. My question is, this guitar is all gold. Meaning the back and sides are gold as well the front of the guitar. Tried to do some looking on the web and had trouble seeing that as an option anywhere. Also of curious note is there is a sales tag of sorts in the case labeling the guitar as 1995 Vintage 57 Classic Epiphone Elite. Obviously its not an elite as its not Japanese and has the normal epi headstock etc. My guess is the previous music store mislabeled it. That being said - I would love to know the exact model off hand if anyone knows! Thanks so mcuh

    Interesting. Only difference I see between what I have and the classic is I have nickel covers on my pickups. Also can't tell if the classic is painted on the back and neck as well as the face of the guitar. Thanks for the link
