Something about the pictures seems different from any Epi Emperor I've seen. The tone controls just look different. Maybe someone can shed some light on this as I've never seen one with this configuration.
looks legit to me but i'm no expert. however, gibson has a 24hour hotline and email service where you can send pics in and guys who are credentialed can give you a solid verdict on authenticity for both gibby and epi models
Looks pretty legit. It yours? If it is, congrats on a sexy guitar!
The knob configuration looks more like one of the Zephyr series, but Epiphone made (and makes) so many variants of their archtops that one can never be sure.
I'm thinking about picking this up tomorrow or the next day, but it's just the tone controls look different from every other picture of this guitar I've seen thus far. Which has me somewhat perplexed. I emailed gibson so maybe they can shed some light before I make a trek to pick this up.
