I have a chance to purchase a good condition EPI Les paul Custom, guitar of the month Aug 2005, for $375. Anybody had expierience with these? Is it worth it?

That seems on the high side price wise

Are you sure it is a custom? I'm not super familiar with Epi's, you have pic's of the head stock?

Flame maple top, black hardware and open coil pickups are all signs it isn't a LP Custom. More pictures are needed.

Yeah that's what I was thinking also, but I'm not an Epi official, where is Pawuri (or what ever his name is) he is the Epi guy here

The only transparent Custom with a figured top and black hardware I can think of is the Prophecy, but that had a quilted top and EMGs.

From what I can see however it does seem to have binding on the back of the body which is a feature limited to Epi customs if I am not mistaken.

Still, a picture of the headstock would be great.

Looks to have the block inlays of a custom, and if it was a guitar of the month it means it was a limited run so not exactly easy to find. I'd start at 270 and bargain from there if possible.

IMO definitely on the high side as far as price goes. unless you want a three HB guitar, i would pass or talk him down a bit. .

Inlay on the first fret is a good giveaway too. This one appears to have it. Were there any special custom models released in 05?
