Re: Something Just isn't right

not enough truss rod cover screws.. thats the problem.. In order for it to sound right you need about eight more.

The position of the volume and tone knobs is backwards.

yeah, all of the bottom screws on the plate are the same, all of the top screws are the same, pots are backwards and the pickups switch is too close to the neck pickup.

That's probably just for a pickguard that was removed. But anyway, I'm quite sure that is a fair-sounding, larupping, electricity guitar sold on the 'bay, made by people who would be clueless enough to make copy an Epiphone (not even a Gibson) and do it wrong.

Re: Something Just isn't right

Probably a China model built from a mirror picture... hmmm.... no, that would make a lefty....

My China LP is at least a nice representative of one, except for the bridge anchors not being pounded well enough into the wood.

Nice veneer though
