Epiphone Destroyer

That's an e-series Epiphone (notice the winged 'e' logo on the headstock). It was called the beast, introduced in 2001. The catalog version was slightly different as it did not have that 'bump' on the tail side of the body. In 2002 it was re-named 'xplorer'. By 2003 it was history.

Thanks for all the input, it is stamped epiphone and the neckplate says it is so I'm going with "The Beast" theory because I have also searched everywhere on the web with no luck. Rotcanx seems to be the only one familiar with this one. Thanks again guys.

I don't have a clue what it is' date=' but I like the looks of it. (The blue one in your avatar)[/quote']

The Firebird was too radical looking for me, so the Beast is way too radical looking. I'm not sure that I have a "favorite" shape for solid body guitars, but the Stratocaster and the Gibson Double Cut Les Paul (not the new "longhorn" version) are more like it.

it is no longer blue. It had some deep chips and scars so I had to strip it and paint it. It is now siren red with all chrome componants. It looks really awesome. I will post some pics when I get it finished. I have the final coat of clear drying now. Should be together by Sun. And it will be for sell, probably on ebay.

Not sure yet' date=' but thanks for the suggestion. I have a couple of sets from an SG and one set from an LP. Haven't had much time to check them out yet.[/quote']

SG set is 490R, 498T on gibson.

Les paul is that, burstbucker pros, or 496R, 500T in the LP classic.

 

If they're epis, You might have to be a little creative on the pots to get a better tone squeezed out of them.
