Hi i posted yesterday but its been deleted for some reason..
Anyway bought this 2011 epiphone les paul from eBay and it has a different logo?? Upgraded pickups, abd hardcase £275 so hopefully not dodgy. Everything else looks good tho the frets seen dressed slightly different. All others iv seen have the different logo. I have a 2008 model which is different..,the top headstock pic is from the 2008 standard bought from a dealer. Thanks guys View attachment 376264

I've just done a quick image search on 2010 Epiphones and they all seem to have the same logo as yours. Looks legit to me.

I don't believe it was deleted.

It was just moved to where it belongs, and you weren't notified.


You will find your post in the FAKE EPIPHONE /thread.
It's a pinned thread, so it's easy to find.

In those years of Epi's they went back to their old style logo.

Their "fancy" logo had the drop-down "N" with a tail like Gibson does. The plainer "straight across" logo was from like 1998 (I forget exactly, been too long since I looked it up) that they went back to.

My Ultra-339, Lee Malia and Genesis Pro's have the straight logo like your Standard. My Prophecy and Pro/FX have the fancy one.

Yeah mate they sound alot brighter than the stock muddy epipi ones. Not played it yet properly its getting a fretboard clean and fret polish first.
