    I've never seen a tailpiece like that before.

    Very cool guitar.

    For $2750, I want a new nut with it.

    I have mixed feelings. It kinda looks neat, yet the inlay on the head looks more like someting on a banjo or mandolin. I'd take it, but not for that money. And yeah, the tailpiece is interesting.

    Kinda cool with the Frequensator tailpice like the old Epiphone Emperors. But, I'm not so sure I'd pay that much for a 1970 Epiphone.

    It's nice - but not at anything that resembles that asking price....

    this was back when Epiphone was still making guitars in the US. in fact, if the dates are correct, it's probably a combination of Kalamazoo Gibson and NYC Epiphone parts.

    Yeah I played a few Epi's from the late 60's and they were nothing to write home about. Pretty much the same quality as their Gibson counterparts from that time period..which is hit or miss in my opinion. It's definately one you'd have to play first before forking out that much cash. Just because they are American made doesn't mean quality...especially from that time period.
