Project Guitar

Recommended Posts

I have a chance to pick up an older epiphone strat style guitar and it was my intention to use this as a project guitar. I am just wondering if anyone can tell me if these types of guitars were of a descent quality?

Well, the quality definitely descended as time went by. However, some of the earlier releases had 'real' wood bodies, either alder or basswood, as opposed to the plywood bodies used on later editions. I'd say that if it has a non-ply body it's going to be a worthwhile project guitar... but I wouldn't waste a minute on the plywood ones.
