I posted in another thread about an Arctic White Elite Custom that I bought a couple of months back. I love it! I wanted another Epiphone Elite Custom Black Beauty to go with it, but they seem few and far between. I found an Epiphone MIJ 2000 Black Custom on EBay today that looked really nice. What is the opinion on a MIJ Epiphone vs. an Elite? Are they pretty much the same except for the American parts that are in the Elite? Is build quality equal between the two? How are the Japanese pickups? Do they sound decent? I don't have any pics yet, except off of EBay. Thanks for any info y'all can provide.
