  1. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Epiphone-by-Gibson-strat-style-electric-guitar-1987_W0QQitemZ180365929190QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV?hash=item29fea5aae6&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1683|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50 Trying to help this guy with an I.D and im nearly positive its a S-310 custom as it has a pair of humbucker's,but they were made around 1996 for a year or so and he insists hes had it sice 1991.confusing as the serial number dates in the 1970's!! any ideas?
  2. Yeah,Like stated above you cant really go wrong with an me50/70. I dont have an me 70 but i do have an me50 and i would be lost without it. One other pedal i cant live without live is my boss noise supressor.
  3. Looks a little fishy to me,i agree with what you say above. The picture taken on a dirty old matress in an ikea bed really helps promote that 'black market charm'
  4. Oh and in regards to action,I believe the action wasnt designed to be high on these guitars,especially with my bridge,Its set as low as possible,I even had it set up by a pro and the lowest we can get it without buzz is around 4mm at the 12th.I would love it lower,but i guess these guitar's were aimed at a certain type of player,and quite a few of the glam player's liked thier action high.

  6. I had a little look myself,That is nut's. I have to admit the 1956 goldtop custom look's very convincing,If you read through the feedback though.They tried to sell a totally different guitar to someone compared to that picture. Chinese Crook's.I feel sorry for anyone buying and supporting these.
  7. Thanks man!Shes a beauty,Would you believe i got it in a pawn shop for next to nothing lol.
  8. Through much research i have some information to share on the epiphone Pro-series super strat's.Might come in handy for someone like me who was unable to get thier hand's on a spec. The Epiphone Pro Series proves Gibson's commitment to modern guitar design at all levels. Each instrument in the series has been researched, designed, and built with close attention to the performance details most important to working musicians. The series consisted of the following,from low-end to high end. Pro435i - (Spec below) This guitar marketed at around $399 at the date of release. Pro635i - Similar spec to the Pro435i,but with a carved poplar body as opposed to 'selected hardwood',24 frets,bolt on/in Maple neck,Rosewood fretboard,Stock samick 'I' Humbucker and two single coil pickups and SOMETIMES,a better tremolo,e.g- a Floyd rose II or Schaller. The guitar came available in Red,White and Black.This guitar marketed at around $599 at date of release. Pro935i - Very similar to 635i,24 frets,Bolt on/in Maple neck,Rosewood fretboard,Pickups were however upgraded to a Gibson L-B Humbucker in the bridge and Gibson SC-2 single coil in the neck.Normally equipped with either a schaller or floyd rose II tremolo.The guitar was available in Black or magenta.This guitar marketed at around $769 Pro - The top of the line Epiphone super strat.Carved Poplar body,Bolt on/in neck (although i have seen neck-thru variations on the USA models),24 frets (On u.s models in patic,the 24th fret had a 'pro' logo on it),Maple neck,Rosewood fretboard,Gibson L-B Humbucker in the bridge and a Gibson SC-2 singlecoil in the neck,Equiped with a schaller,floyd rose original or floyd rose II as standard.This guitar was available in White,black and red.This guitar marketed at around $950. Above guitar,Epiphone Pro435i Samick 'I' Produced pickups,2 single coils; 1 humbucking Black hardware 25 1/2” scale Rosewood fingerboard Offset dot inlay Bennder fine-tune tremelo Select hardwood body Bolt-in maple neck E-600UL strings Ebony, white, red This guitar marketed at around $399.
  9. Yeah the neck is outstanding.Problem is because its quite old i have problems with big bends on the 14th fret-18th fret on the d-g strings :(,the note cuts out completely,action is fine so im assuming its fretware that might be causing the problem. I also have an ibanez rg 370 dx and a washburn d-200 pro e,and this guitar in my own humble opinion,is better than both.I love it!
