Epiphone I believe. It's some kid in my homeroom and I'm posting this during homeroom. Trying to see who will buy but I personally don't think anyone will want it lol ! :p
These used to sell for $599 a few years ago; before the price of musical gear shot up 30%.

Epiphone may build one of the most popular Les Paul clones, but they definitely are not the best quality ones.

If your friend thinks it's worth that much, you should have a chat with him. MINT condition ones are selling on Ebay with hardshell cases for around $600 as we speak.
