Someone I know has an Epihone, and I think it is an Emperor F.  Serialnumber  stamped at the beack of the headstock is 7 digit, starts with 207, (manufactured july 1982), so I think that  also fits. For pictures follow the link. 

But, inside the guitar it says Style: Emperor HSB, the serialnumber is not written on it. I can't find anything about HSB.

Can somebody give me more certainty about this guitar? 


Thank you very much, appreciate your help.

Best regards,


Gouda, the Netherlands

The letters after the model usually refer to the colour on older epiphones, but that itself doesn't offer much help as i can't think what HSB stands for. I can't see the pictures.

Heritage Sun Burst? Usually called sun burst or vintage sun burst.
