Hello,
I'm considering this Epi Les Paul listed in my local market. Few questions -

i) Do you think this is real or fake?
ii) Looking at the serial number, what year this is from?
iii) I'm under impression that Custom Pros came in only Alpine White or Black? This one looks Maple / Spruce?
iv) If this is real, what would be a good price for this?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you. The asking price is around $600 (including taxes).
Would you know what the value of this 2018 Epi Custom Pro was brand new?

I'm debating b/w this used guitar and brand new PRS SE Custom 24 for $700 (including taxes).

Thanks!

Also, what's the difference b/w Epi Custom vs Epi Custom Pro. I don't think I see Custom Pro being offered at Epi's website.

Nice guitar, but they just re-released it with the updated headstock. I think 600 is a little more than I would pay for the earlier version. The new one is only $80 more, and was on sale for $100 off a few weeks ago.

I had one of those and they are a rock machine. heavy, too. I'd get the latest version with updated hs.

Yep, I would only pay $450-$500 for the older one if you want to save some money. But, I think the newer Epiphones are made much better and the new headstock with the larger diamond are a lot nicer. I would buy new.
