Help w/ info on Epiphone LP model
i just got my RG620xbk (like new w/ the plastic still on it) and i was sooo impressed with it that i traded my RG570gn (like new w/ the plastic still on it) for an Epiphone Les Paul. i am not normaly an Epiphone guy or even a Les Paul guy, but this one is pretty amazing!
the Epiphone has a blood red quilt top with black harware, a JB in the bridge and a '57 (?) in the neck, new frets (gtr is mint - the original owner was a tech/luthier - certified - and didn't like the original frets) and new Grover tuners on the headstock (the kluson style are not my favorite - yuck!!). on the back of the headstock it has a "Limited Edition Epiphone" insignia. the body is a one pc mahogany body w/ real a quilt maple top and the red is truly stunning! the serial # is U99080273.
if anyone knows any info on this model i would be very appreciative. i am guessing it is pre-Elite but of the same quality. i am curious what overall quality and price these went for. i'm guessing it is a '99 model.
thanks in advance.
