Hi, just got a 145mpl maple back and sides, no neck block issue, Nick is straight, plays really nice. Can anyone tell me what year this was from? Made in Japan brown label, I've heard people knock these with bolt on neck, but I have to say with a set up it plays very well.

Thanks

I take it there was no serial number to be found on or inside the guitar. A brown label (with splotched pattern) indicates it's made in Japan during 1980-1987. The bolt-on neck was a way for Epiphone to reduce the manufacturing costs.
