I will add some pics of it to make sure its actually a Epipone Elite SG Standard (Etlitist 61'), so heres the pics and hopefully i can get some info on it thanks

Epiphone Elitist models are better than a fair amount of Gibsons. I can't say I know how much they go for though.

I've never played one but i've heard some good things about this guitar. The Elitists are supposed to be great for the price.

Why are the strings gone though? Also I don't know if it's fake or real, how much is the seller charging?

"Ephione Elite SG Standard (Etlitist 61') in Cherry Red. It is the best SG Epiphones makes. It comes with the hardcase and I bought them both new at Long & McQuade. The guitar is MINT, I took very good care of this guitar, it was my favourite but I have to see it go! I paid 500$ for both so I am asking $275 for them. At the moment there are no strings installed but i will include some in a pack or if your just gonna add different ones. "

Thats what he has said ... i will add the othr two pics now

I wish he would've gotten a picture of the headstock. I dunno man, it looks slightly fishy to me, but it's up to you. Hell, I have no idea if it's fake or not. It looks okay, I suppose.

They haven't made Elitist SGs in a few years. I wanted to get one but they stopped making them by the time I'd saved up.

I think it's very suspicious considering the price. You couldn't get the Elitist SGs at that new price even when they were made, for a good condition one now they're not made anymore I'd thought the price would be much higher. I can't believe there's any way he could be selling a good Elitist SG for $275. Either it's a regular Epi SG that he's claiming is an Eiltist but isn't, or there's got to be something really messed up with it.

Looks just like mine.. its good. However might be regular one not an elitist... elites are more xpensive.
#12
Look at the pic of the back of the guitar.

It has teh "Phallus" headstock, so it isnt an elitist.

Elitists have a more gibson like headstock, its smaller and dosent like like the end ofa penis.

DONOTBUY!

No, the Elitists don't have a 'Gibson like' headstock. In fact actually the Elitist headstock is longer than the regular Epi headstock.

Anyway I just looked up the '61 Elitist SG, and it has binding on the neck... in the pictures of THAT SG, I can't see binding along the neck. So I don't think it can be the Elitist.

I said gibson like.

ITs not phallic like the epi G400s or so such, it rounds off to the top and dosent have a "Japseye".

It's an ordinary Chinese/Korean made G-400, probs Chinese made as they stopped SG production in Korea a couple of years ago I think, but anyways yeah it ain't an Elitist model, as it lacks the neck binding an Elitist has.
#17
The headstock in the 1 pic looks like your stock G400 plus I don't see any binding on the neck.

They started putting grovers on all Epi guitars. They're on the G400s, too. They just never updated the stock picture.

I actually like the stock G400 headstock better IMO. Can't wait for mine to get here & to do my comparison with my Hag!

I don't think that's an Elitist. Here in Sweden, they go for $2000 or more if you can even get one.

It's fair considering they go for $350 at MF but they always have a $300 sale G400 (model changes monthly I think) but as of this months special I would pass on that and grab this for $299.99
