Awesome, Thank You!! I was hoping you would share your opinion! Could i trouble you for one more? the only issue i see is a small hairline crack in the finish where the neck meets the body, could you look at the pictures and see what you think? is it more serious? i can try for better pics if need be...again Thank You for your time and help!


it is where the heel is glued on....

if nothing moves, I wouldn't care

Peter,

I would not be so assuring about the broken headstock It doesn't look
like the best repair to me. And where did the serial number go?

Peter,

True, you said nothing about the quality of the repair. But should you have? And as to the lack of visible serial number, how can we even know it is genuine without a serial number?

I intend no disrespect in this response. You have been of great service to Epi buyers. But in this case, I honestly feel this guitar is worth very little, the headstock repair is poor, and the serial number is invisible. What if it began with a large "EE" ?

There are NO other things that makes me think it could be a Fake.....

Hi thank and you for your help, the seller send me more detailed photos of the tuners zone and i could see clearly the guitar was repaired becouse the diference in the painting finish between the neck and the headstock and a big line in the painting , at the end the guitar is original but was poorly repaired so i didnt buy the guitar.

looks like a Lpj70, Im no expert but looks legit to me. Im sure someone with better knowledge will be along soon with a more definite answer. If it is legit, then bite his hand off for it

No kidding! I can't believe the number of people who come here saying something like: "I just bought this Epi and I'd like to know whether it's fake." Really? If you know how to post to this forum, why the h3ll don't you ask BEFORE you buy?!? Sheesh......
