i have a metallic blue 'LP' shaped guitar. its got a LFR and fairly low quality pickups. ive had it for a few years, it was one of my first guitars.

recently, ive always though it is just a useless no-name guitar. but, recently, the pickup selector switch broke. I opened up the back to find all the pickups, switch, and volume pots had Epiphone written on it.

its definately not an Epi, or atleast i dont think it is. the headstock says 'Rally' in a strange script font.

any ideas what this guitar is?

Epiphone Hummingbird
Epiphone Futura Custom Prophecy (Twin EMG)
Vox Valvetronix VT20+
Vox Wah
Boss MD-2
Danelectro Cool Cat Drive
Boss EQ

yeah thats the one.

i honestly had no idea of the brand 'Rally' because i bought it from a guy on a market stand. about 3 years ago. why do they have epiphone hardware though?

Perhaps it has been modded at some stage?
Also try and find out what factory it was made in.
Some of the factories that build epi's also make other companies guitars aswell,so the parts might have been left over after an epi run.

that sounds plausible. on the side, i really woulnt recommend buying any of those guitars with the double-locking tremolo. the action continuously goes back to being very high everytime you pull up on the tremolo and they have fairly awful fret buzz.

just opening the link in Flaisch's post kinda answers that even though he got the wrong guitar and may not have realised:

The header is "Dae Won Musical Instrument Co., Ltd. -- Rally". Some Epiphones are made by DaeWon so it seems fairly logical that sometimes they would use leftover epiphone parts on other guitars.

edit: beaten to it..
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.

It's the color of Lars favorite bath towel. He licensed it to that company.
