A real beauty. About 12 years ago, I saw some of these new from Japan on ebay, and I immediately got one. With a Gibson headstock, I thought it might have been a counterfeit, but one of the knowledgeable guys on the forum told me it was 100% legit. Enjoy your new beauty.

I too, bought one, off E-bay. It's an "Epiphone Japan," version. Was originally sold only in Japan, as it could not

be (officially) sold, here in the states, with the "Gibson" headstock shape. It was a nice SG! I subsequently sold

mine, to fund a my Gibson '61 "Satin Finish" reissue.

 

Here's an old photo, of mine:

Compared to my Gibson versions, this one was lighter weight! A bit "too light" for me.

But, that's just Me! But...it sounded, and played Great! No complaints, there, really.

 

Kinda wish I'd kept it, now...just to have it! "C'est La Vie!" [tongue]

As I recall, we both bought ours from that same place the same week.
