Ok, well, I bought an Epiphone Strat copy from a pawn shop for like 100 bucks a couple years back, and haven't been able to identify it. Here's a couple pictures of Billy Idol with one, just like mine. (Except mine doesn't have the rebel flag.) Any help appreciated!

Yeah, I already know it's an Epiphone, but I'm just looking for specs mostly. Thanks though.

Hm...I saw one of those in a 2003 or 2004 Epi catalog. Decent looking guitars. I'll go dig up some info and post back in a few minutes.

Edit: I searched around a bit and all I could really find out was that there are different models of them. Do you have any idea what model yours is? Also, could you post some pics of it?

I'll post some pics, check back in about 5 minutes, and I'm not completely sure what model it is, I haven't been able to find enough information on it.

I made a post over on the Epi forums...Maybe someone there will know about it.

I tried searching again and couldn't find anything except one of the pics you already posted...Hopefully one of the Epi forum users knows about it.

It's neck is very slim, it has a flat but hot tone, and the action is almost nothing. Very fun guitar. I have 2 Gibsons now, so I'm probably looking to sell this as soon as I get some info.

How much was it selling for?


Like 25 bucks. I saw another one for 175. Kurt Cobain used to play one all the time.

That's the one that's going for $175.

Yeah, I saw Kurt playing one before. The one for 25 bucks was apparently rebuilt, and the guy didn't know anything about it. The one for 175 looks like the proper starting price.
