Can anyone tell if this Thunderbird is a Gibson or an Epiphone?



The truss rod cover says Gibson, but it has the input jack on the top of the body like an Epiphone.

Rosewood board, what looks like a poly finish and the shape of the pickups: that's an Epiphone.

A quick serial number check on the guitar dating project site would confirm it, but I agree--that's an Epi

Is it bolt-on or neckthrough? if it's bolt-on I'd say it's an Epiphone.
