Hey, some of you may remember that about 4/5 months ago there was a post from your truley about an epiphone i bought off of ebay. It was reasonablly cheap and *duh duh duhhhhh**** from china. SO the post got a fair bit of intrest, over 7 pages if i remember and unconviently, when moving house, i was with out internet untill recent

SO, back to where we left off it was about 50/50 of people thinking it was fake and / or real, and with the demand for pics back then i thought i would continue where i left off. So lets solve this mystery to weather my guitar from china was a big fake or the real deal. (btw, if it is real, damn, chinas a great place )

p.s even if its not, it sound fecking amazing, but i would do a sound recording but i dont have any gud software (if u could recomend any that would be great, preferably free)

Pics taken with sony ericsson k750i, so quality not great









If more Photos are needed, post in here or etc, or if sound clips are desired, tell me the software to use

Yeah, this is going back to the previous threed i made like 4 months ago, i only paid £140 caus the guy said "he had a contract with epiphone so he got them cheap". And it should retail for £350-400 ish.

Oh and on back of tuners it says "Grover"

looks kinda fake, the serial number is just printed on, not stamped. that's about it though.

The only thing I would say looks dodgy is the serial number. Doesn't look like any Epiphone serial number I've seen before.

Well that's pretty reasonable for ebay, I'd trust it.

Epiphone doesn't stamp their serial numbers, that's a Gibson thing.

Does it really matter if it sounds good and you like the way it feels/plays?
The power of your example is far greater than what you say.

The serial number's meaningless....crooks have been cloning car registrations for years, doing it with guitar serial no's is no different and a lot easier to do.

So if you jack your own thread...

Would that be like masturbating? o.O

Deaus, you mentioned resale value. Are you planning on selling it then?
