I have a 2011 JB Standard. Only thing I did was replace the knobs. Great guitar!

Here it is almost bone stock. It's a 2009 made in the Korean Unsung factory if I remember correctly.

And here it is after I modded the hell out of it:
IMG_8477.jpg


not much left that's original.

Mods are:
*locking tuners
*Tusq nut
*All black plastics
*Complete rewire ('50s) with vintage style cloth and braided wire
*Installed Switchcraft switch and Gibson pots (had to enlarge the holes).
*Paper in oil caps
*Parsons Street P-90's
*Bigsby trem
*roller nut

It's a rockabilly monster :thumb:

Hi there. New to the forum and saw the Gold Top Club! I'm an owner of an Epi Traditional Pro GT. Speaking of which, just installed some Gibson Deluxe Tuners on this bad boy and I love em!

I bought recently one second hand, and I´m going to convert it to a Slash model.

Gorgeous guitar

MF was running Epi Traditional Pros as their SDOTD on a regular basis a couple years back for $329. I had to pull the trigger on a goldtop and desert burst at those prices.

1995 Korean model that I bought new. It has GFS pickups in it and they sound good.

1999 Korean GT...I bought it used about 15 years ago. A great sounding guitar, and my only Epiphone at the moment...





I’m not sure what the ‘limited Edition’ on the back of the headstock means...I assume it’s a run that they release from time to time.
