Man he sure loves talking about that case lol. Message him for the serial # and possibly a pic of the number.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

Just the wording makes you wonder if it's 100% built as it would have come directly from Epiphone. When he specifies OEM parts so much, I'm curious if it was a copy and then put together with some actual Epiphone parts while the rest aren't.

Im guessing OEM mean Original epiphone Manufacture? thats my guess. Ask him what isnt original, and what the brand is. Otherwise it seems fine to me.

OEM=Original Equipment Manufacturer

He sure says certain parts are OEM, but not that it was OEM assembled.

it says OEM paint and truss rod cover. this makes me think the guitar's involved in some sort of accident which damaged the exterior badly. cause you dont need to paint the guitar oem if it's a new guitar from the original factory.

and OEM wood suggests the body was replaced, probably cause the old one had to be trashed.

so i think it's not "new"
#12
yeah i would just go for one that looks to be 100% real just in case. At least this ones really a custom forgop!!! (maybe . You have a habit of finding dodgy items dont you)

I wager the OEM part are the original parts of the original guitar, which might had an accident or a burn out or whatever, and it's patched up with original Epiphone parts, but not the OEM parts that were in it when he bought it.

Shouldnt the truss rod cover be a two screw config? Not a three? The ****ty Chinese knock off's are usually the three screw configuration.
I'd stay away from that one. Bad vibe about it.

Edit: Sorry, just the Gibson Customs are two screw.

...but on the plus side, that is one damn fine case.

He says it is "sold as is". So I wouldn't recomend it. Why would you stick that in unless there is a problem?

I agree...the wordiness screams of mix and match parts.

I did send an email requesting pics of the serial number and some explanation why he used all the wording he did.

Don't you think it would have seemed a lot less suspicious if he had just said it was an Epi LP Custom and nothing more? Just seems to follow the principle of giving someone more rope to hang them with it in my book.
