Hi,
I just saw a Epi LP for sale , I looked up the serial and it just says 2016 China.
The truss rod cover is missing and I'm not sure if the pick ups are original, and also not sure about the tuners, are they surpossed to be grover?
Is it possible anyone can tell by pics what it could be thanks.
Serial is 16061309736

Great thanks for the help.
It looks and feels good, I have a Epi SG and love it.
Not sure if it's worth the money though at $300 Aussie dollars

Hard to judge now the market is from here.
What does a G400 go for where you are ? It shouldn't be more expensive than that.

Yeh it's crazy , even after the conversation rate
I can't say I blame them, as import costs are likely such that it is not feasible for them to absorb them and still make money but jeez, that's quite an upcharge.

Isn't there a hefty tax on everything imported ?

Anyways, looking at prices you provided, seem like $300 is not bad for Australia.
Pickups could be OEM, if so this is what they are

700T

And thanks for the info Dr.
I have my Epiphone SG and a few diy kits I've done.
But for some reason this old beaten up a bit, nice bit of timber calls to me lol.
Not sure why.
And for $100 or so i could get something new made by another brand.

So decisions haha
