I need your precious help to identify this epiphone guitar which i found in the basement of my granddad's house who recently passed away. Sadly, i found it pretty hard to find out anything, since the serialnumber is missing (see Picture 3). Here are some characteristics of the guitar (there might be some wrong lingo - sorry about that):
1. So, i've done some research and apparently Guitars made in Korea in the early 90s, the serialnumbers were placed on the back of the head with a sticker instead of engraving, which might be the case for this guitar also. there is some residual of what might have been a sticker that has been taken off (see picture 3). That would make sense with respect to the heritage of my granddad.2. The head is shaped like one on an Explorer3. The branding on the head is “Epiphone by Gibson”4. the truss rod cover says “GIBSON”5. The inlays are dots, but placed where the low E string is.6. The body reminds me somewhat of that of a Spotlight, but resembles more this one by Samick: https://samick.fandom.com/wiki/P . I can't really tell. What I can say is that this guitar is not “Neck-thru construction”, it’s a 4-screw “Bolt-on Neck”. The surface of the body is somewhat "flat" (rather like a e.g. regular Strat, than a "curved" body like a Les Paul or PRS.
7. It has two single coil and one humbucker pick up, with a 5 way switch8. The Bridge is by Steinberger and has a tremolo locking nut.Please see the photos below for reference.Thank you so much for your help!Best regards
