Looks homemade as hell to me... he did say its from a luthier. I would stay away from it if i were you, buying hand made non name brand stuff seems kinda shady unless you can really sit down with it and go over it with a fine tooth comb.

It's either an Epiphone EM-2, or a copy based on it (extreme likeness ahoy!). The thing is- I've never seen them with a Strat-style tremolo. They usually had Floyds.

yeah thats some frankenstiened thing, probably not on the Epiphone site or newhere else for that matter!

No. Prophecies are red/black, sunbursted on flame (or quilted?) maple and have pearl knobs and stuff.

Defenitly not a Prophecy.

it looks like a custom guitar they built themselves they just put an epiphone explorer's headstock to trick you, DONT buy that guitar a have a feeling that if you do you will get totally screwed

Like I said- it's an EM-2 (with different hardware than I've seen before), or a copy based on it. Why do you guys once again keep bulldozering on with uninformed "that looks nothing like any Epiphone ever produced ever!"-hogwash?

Edit: Some EM-1s came with Strat-style trene. Behold, a Genuine EM-1 (and yes- it came in a burst finish too, but there are almost no images to be found):



So you see, it's clearly 97% similar, the only real difference being the pickups and the finish.

The person may have swapped out the pickups, too.

It doesn't look like there's even a logo on the headstock of the one for sale, though.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

Those Epi's weren't anything to great, especially considering the old MIIIs by Gibson can be had for a couple hundred more.
