I really like it; although if anyone has any info whatsoever..please speak up i know nothing about this guitar other then the fact i think its from the 80's because of its explorer headstock was popular in the eighties

You see this is why it's wrong to rape your guitar... in public.

These were in all the pawn shops back in the late 80's.
You could do worse......or you could do better too.
If you like it that's what's important.

it's more important that you like it - our opinions mean nothing to you.

it says gibson on the trussrod cover of a lot of epiphones, until fairly recently. my sheraton says gibson like that, too. It's because epiphone are owned by gibson (people seem to think this is a recent thing - they actually have owned epiphone for over 50 years!)
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I like it. I have a late 80s epiphone spotlight which is a PRS copy and the quality of the 80s epiphones aren't bad. I'd pay 170 for an 80s epi strat copy it looks great
