  1. Get her strung and start playing. Enjoy.
  2. I just bought a 3 pack of Martin Life Span 12s and 1 set of 11s. Coated, long lasting great sounding. Had them delivered. Spending the weekend restringing my three Masterbilts and 2006 Martin DC Aura.
  3. Looks like someone put an Epiphone neck on an Ibanez body to me. In fact, no 5 ply binding on the headstock or fret board, not the right 5 piece next and not the right inlays either. Someone built that nest and put it on an Epiphone body. Not a Chinese fake, but a Luthier fake. Not an original Epiphone. Hope you did not spend a lot on it.
  4. I don’t think I’ll e able to play one before I buy, but as soon as the Frontier gets stocked at GC, one will be on its way to me. Based on that, the Excellente would follow. I was disappointed with the Century DeLuxe I bought and returned. Not as solid as the previous Masterbilts. These are all solid wood. Hoping for success. A lot of new product this year. The almost total lineup headstock change took me by surprise. the USA made Texan and Casino will be out of reach for me.
  5. From the serial : Saein Plant, 2005, January, Production No 0712. No info on specs or model but it could be a Classic with the open HBs. Could be aftermarket though. Nice quilt on top which points to the Classic. Should say that on truss rod cover. Play it. Should be sound in fit and finish. Would not go above $399.
  6. A Casino pickguard will fit. Look on eBay.
  7. I have. 2011 Hummingbird. Picked it up used at Guitar Center 4 years ago for $199 including a new Epi HS Case. The top has opened up nicely and is almost as loud as my mid-2000’s Masterbilts. Will never sell. Great slim neck, great action. I hate to to call it my beater, but I travel more with it because it holds its own and is damn pretty.
  8. Plant S - Smack Year 00 - 2000 Month 04 - April 0005 Unit number 0005
  9. Made in the Samick plant in 1996, November. No 7420.
  10. Unloaded mine also because of this issue. POS. Never really bonded with it either.
  11. Where did you pick this baby up? And how much?
  12. Main reason I got rid of mine. Love Epiphones, but that is a design flaw I would not live with.
