Japanese made Epiphone models made in 70s and early 80s were manufactured by Matusmoku too. The frets between the 16th and the last seem to have been replaced. The last two digits of the serial number in the pictures is hidden for the sake of the next owner.
Neck profile: not too slim, not too fat Neck width at nut: approx. 41.0 mm / 1.61 in Weight: approx. 3.7 kg / 8.16 lb. 820 mm / 32.3 in.The specs above are extracted from the catalog or are based on my research, so they could be misinformed or mistaken. The weight and the neck width are based on actual measurement. Condition of the item Please refer to the photos &. Section below regarding guitar condition. The neck looks straight and the truss rod works fine. The fretboard is smooth and fine. The frets show minimal wear for its age. Or at least they might have a slight scratchy sound which can removed by a contact cleaner. There might have been shallow paint cracks, especially near the neck pocket as often happens with bolt-on neck guitars. Please check them by the pictures. There are some blemishes, dents, scratches and so on, as you can see the pictures but on the whole you could say that the guitar is in excellent condition. There are some more blemishes, dents, scratches and so on that cannot be identified by photos because they are so slight, shallow or small.
Some wood screw holes of the item could be loose as well as those of many other old or used guitars/basses. The above comment on the condition is my own subjective judgment and I cannot describe all about the item because it is used, so please check the pictures both at the top and at the bottom of this item description and judge the condition for yourself. Accessories No accessories are included. You can see a lot of detailed pictures at the bottom of this item description. These charges are the buyers responsibility.
I could extend the due date, depending on the circumstances. The pictures below shows how a guitar including a gig bag is wrapped. North America/Central America (Second Zone)......... Almost all of the guitars in my store are not a brand new, but a used one, so they are not always be in "PERFECT" condition. This can be especially true of "VINTAGE" guitars that have had many years of use and because of this they can sometimes have issues with playability, so for many reasons they may need care and maintenance before reaching an optimal playing condition.Nowadays a lot of guitar players know the term "JV" (Japan Vintage) and that the values of guitars made in and around the JV era are getting higher. However, in Japan, there is a significant humidity difference through the year which can have a bad influence on the materials in guitars if they are not well kept & carefully maintained. Sometimes they are stored away for ages after a very short period of use, as a result it is often the case that they have issue's about the neck.
I have played guitar for many years and all the guitars in my store were listed only after I checked & played them personally. All of the guitars in my store passed the normal standards/my standards unless particularly stated otherwise. However that does not mean "perfect" condition as most guitars in the world have some issue be it a scratch or a break. As the guitars are used the frets are worn more or less. I cannot say 70% or 80% left or something like that,,,,, because who can count the degree in a precise way?So please check the degree by the pictures. If the guitar needs refreting or if there is any defect with the frets (judging by my standards) it will be stated in the description.
I check the Fret (String) Buzz by picking normally with light gauge strings (009-046), adjusting the bottom string height (low E) to 2.0 / 2.5 mm and the top string height (high E) to 1.8 / 2.2 mm. The bottom string height/E to 2.8 / 3.3 mm and the top string height/G to 2.3 / 2.8 mm. The guitars are used, so slight buzz could occur.If the fret buzz of the guitar is above the normal standard, the detail is described in the description of the guitar. As the guitars are used, they might have a number of dents, scratches, blemishes, chips and so on. Unless they are in mint or near mint condition, you cannot describe all of them, so please judge the condition by the pictures.
ALL the electrical parts work fine unless there is a particular fault in which case it will be mentioned in the description, but they might have a slight scratchy sound. Please check the guitar within two days of it being delivered to you. If it differs significantly from the description I will accept the return.
