Hello, I'm new and I see a lot of "where does this casino come from" threads but yeah here's mine.

I THINK it's Japanese

Fret ends are covered, body joins at 16th fret blue label but I've never seen this colour before.

Any ideas? On the label it's marked as VS so ?vintage sunburst? weirdest sunburst I've seen

Any thoughts

I have got one in the more traditional vintage sunburst. It is a Japanese domestic market only guitar from 76 to 79. I have seen 2 in this colour before. Can I ask where you got it from. Could you tell us the serial number. Adrian

I got it off an Australian Forum called Melband.

Serial is 028016 which searching by epiphone and that gives me this address.

Previous auction link?

I guess it's where the guy bought it from?

I just think it's an interesting colour more than anything I've never seen them advertised looking like this unless it's just a weird aging thing

I have seen this one before. I bought mine off the same seller in Japan. You have one very rare guitar. Did you pay similar money to what it cost the other guy when he bought it from Japan?

I paid a little over 1000. I dunno if it's a good deal or whatever but yeah the colouring on it made it a must have, thanks for the info though I was thinking maybe it was a fake good to know that it's not!
