That looks pretty good. Do you know if the bridge is an OFR or LFR?


It's an LFR, but it holds well in tuning and I haven't had problems for the past 3 hours I've been playing it xD.

Once I got it, I got new strings and took it to my friend for a free setup and such. The sound is amazing o_o it was truly a find for $70.

I checked the Serial Number, it was made in Korea in '01. But that's about it.

It was a one in a milli find. Lucky enough I got it, the lady I bought it off from said another buyer was coming to pick it up.

I might change out the pups, since I have a lot of money left, any suggestions? I was leaning towards some Burstbuckers, or Dirty Fingers.

New pick-ups in cheap guitars are the way to go!

I was about to say it looks like a Prophecy Futura, but damn... I wish Jamaica had flea markets that sold guitars.

I would KILL for that find, man. Great job.

I found my Epiphone Goth Explorer at a Pawn Shop about a mile from my house. I paid $95 dollars for it. It was completly stock when I bought it. I have customized it since then. There's a pic in my profile. I think you might have got a better deal than I did. That guitar looks killer. I love the flamed top.
#23
Yeah, there isn't much for me to customize, just pickups and that's it, I love everything else on it. Just found out now that my Floyd is a Schaller licensed floyd.
