Hi everyone. Are there any Epiphone players here? I don’t play Gibsons/Epiphones that much, so I could use some opinions from the experts. I need some assistance identifying the correct model of an old Epiphone archtop.

Take a look at this Epiphone:


What is actual model of that Epiphone hollowbody? My friend thinks it is an Epiphone Elitist 1963 ES-335 Dot, but none of them from the Google Image Search look like the one in the above vid.

Pay attention to the white “E” symbol on the bottom of the headstock. Does any Epiphone archtop model have that feature?

Like I said, the Epiphone hollowbody in the above clip looks old and is most likely discontinued. So does anyone know the model of that Epiphone?

Thanks, guys.

How old do you guys think that Epiphone is? I can't find a picture of it anywhere.

Could it have been made in the '60s?
