    1980’s Epiphone L-5 copy this is a Pre Elite-Elitist Jazz Box guitar and she is Beautiful and is MEGA RARE WoW!,,,,OUT of stock

Sorry SOLD OUT : Have one your looking to sell?.... contact Joe: Here we have another RARE find folks!.... This guitar is very well built ( PRE Elite & Elitist )it is a possible "prototype" guitar, She’s a Beauty as well as a fine player its a late 1980's according to its owner who purchased it new in Japan. When I first saw it I thought it looked identical to our also late 1980's Epiphone Emperor guitar, I have had several of the Emperors and think highly of them they sold for over $2k and I was lucky enough to find one last year and have kept my eye out for another one of these great guitars since and I came across this one.....other than this I not seen another one like this guitar in years ...the body shape - depth and woods - bindings and detail are of the L-5, it has a great neck on it too its 1-11/16's at the bone nut, The necks Headstock has a Mother of pearl inlaid logo and Flower Pot motif fancy and is striking with its multi-bound headstock & Custom truss rod cover much like the old Gibby, its fingerboard is nicely grained Rosewood with MOP block style inlay and its frets are in excellent condition too and look nearly new still so it really plays wonderfully, all multi bound same as the Gibby too quite impressive. Its Gold hardware shows its age which is 25 years old and it looks pretty cool to me like this ( better than new )and vintage , tuner gears are good to and appear to be unmarked Gotoh originals with patina . The electronics ALL work excellently with no snap crackle or pops noticed..it seamed quiet and it has nice rich tone the PAF’s sound like the Ibanez I sold and it had the Super 58's to me as a tonal reference. This beauty comes with the Classic L-5 tailpiece of course and it sets off a nice vintage guitar. Note the high end arch top bridge detail with mother of pearl inlay. It plays easily and sound smooth and is in above average all round condition with only minor nicks or fine age scratches here or there and a few fine check hairlines on the necks bindings no deterioration as seen on so many of these vintage guitars other than the pick guard which completely deteriorated and was tossed and replaced with what you see now and that is a proper Jazz box Ebony pick guard which is multi-bound and was custom fit along with the proper high end bracket to this guitar and as you can see looks great now.... Here is a Super rare guitar and will be great for the right player. Check it out seriously I do not think it will last long so get her while you can… Thanks for looking, Joe
