Epiphone Slasher


Recommended Posts

I got this today. It's a 2001 Epiphone Slasher in Metallic Light Blue . It's a Chimera of sorts with a Firebird body and an Explorer bolt-on Maple neck. The pickups E-Series "Ultra Hot humbuckers" with engraved E-Series logo on the pickup covers. The guitar is almost like new. It plays great and sounds awesome for the kind of music I like (rock/punk).

No, not yet, if he still has it after Christmas I'll probably buy it from him. He's asking $200, which seems to be about the average asking price for them.

The none FX models go for 200 if you can get the FX models for 200 i jump on it . But i dont think so ....
