Ok, first of all, hi. Right lets continue -
I managed to pick this up of a young man saying that it was his first guitar from years ago but he had left the bridge as his house in Wales. I don't know anything about it but here it goes -
It has an Epiphone v headstock with strat styled body??
It's quite obvious the body has been done - but the marks were it has been worn off underneath are light blue (don't know if this is going to help you)
The pickups say they are made by Hohner - On the electrics on the back it says 'HOHNER VBS-1 MFD. BY EMG USA'.
According to my brother-in-law it's some weird 1 spring bridge? It says just below U.S PAT. 4.632. 004 (if thats helpful?)
Oh yes the back plate bit on the back just says made in Korea - So maybe not an original body?? Idk much at all about older guitars and things but google doesn't help.
I would at least like to possibly get a bridge for it as I quite like this - Any help?
Thanks in advance,
Luke

Theres a guitar just like that at a pawn shop that i know of(except for all the modifications) I have no idea what it is though.

I believe Epiphone made superstrats in the mid-80s to capitalize on the booming shred genre at the time... I forget the exact model, though.

Looks like they failed.

I have the answer for you.

The bridge is from a Steinberger locking tremolo system which was used on Hohner guitars in the early 90's.

I have the same system on my Hohner Professional ST Metal which I purchase in 1990. The tremolo is tuneable via the spring.
