Epi Bass - Need Info Please!

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me to identify this model? It's not listed on the Epiphone website (at least I can't find it) and it's not listed on the discontinued page either. 

I'm wondering what it might be worth. It's in like-new condition.

Not 100% sure, but I think that is from the first line of instruments that had the Ephiphone name when Gibson reintroduced the Epiphone name in the late 1980's.  There was this bass, sort of cross between a Fender J and P, with a Kramer style headstock, and bass that resembled the Gibson M-1 guitar.  There were also a sort of Strat style guitar, a sort of Firebird style guitar and a sort of Les Paul style guitar.  All of the guitars came in both bolt on or neck through construction (depending on price) and I think they all had Steinberger trem systems.  None are looked at very highly these days.  I picked up the neck through Strat at a pawn shop for under a $100  about 10 years ago, and they haven't gone up since then, so that is probably about the value the bass.
