G'day folks. I am writing from Sydney Australia and this is my first post! I am the proud owner of a Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard tribute guitar. Fans of this model will know there was only 1959 units made and they came with a Lifton style brown hard case with pink lining like the 50's Gibson cases as well as a certificate of authenticity.
Firstly, let me say I know this guitar is genuine and it has a serial number engraved in the back of the head stock like the originals, and secondly, I despise counter fitters and cheats. For the appropriate people, I will happily provide any photos and identification required if need be. I am desperate to replace the missing COA and case at any cost, to make my guitar complete once more. I have spoken to the company who has the importing rights from Gibson which was an exercise in frustration. If anybody knows where or who I need to speak to, I would forever be in your gratitude. Kind regards Cameron, Sydney Australia.
