Tihs guitar is an Epiphone Genesis Deluxe. These guitars were made by the Epiphone company when they had a plant in Japan. These were only manufactured for 3 years from 1979 to 1981. It is an interesting looking and sounding guitar. This one is the deluxe model which includes cream binding around the entire body, neck, and headstock. It has all original equipment. Finished in a sunburst finish, dual humbuckers with mini toggle coil tap switch. There is 2 volume and a master tone control. The rosewood fretboard is smooth as silk. Gold hardware with stopbar tailpiece and ABR-1 tunomatic bridge. This guitar sounds sweet, the bridge humbucker has bite and really excells with classic rock, coil tapped it gets more bite with a slight decrease in volume. The neck humbucker is smooth and mellow, you can get some great jazzy sounds out of it, and when coil tapped, you can get some really good country tones. This guitar is heavy and thick which really enhances the sound.
Solid body I think is mahogany with a maple top. It rests well when strapped on and is evenly weighted. There are a few flaws in the finish near the bridge pickup and the controls. I also have its original hard shell case.
Serial number is 1290194.
This guitar has been played quite a bit, i am the third owner and I really take a good care of.

THE EPIPHONE GENESIS IS A VERY GREAT GUITAR. IT IS REAL SOLID IN WEIGHT AND SOUND. LES PAUL GUITARS HAS MOVED ON FROM ORIGINALITY AND ARE BEING PRODUCED BY SEVERAL DIFFERENT PRODUCERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. EPIPHONE MAINTAINED ITS ORIGINALITY AND BECAME WHAT GIBSONS USED TO BE.

These guitars were made by Pearl in Taiwan, not Japan. At least, that's what Jim Walker thinks. He designed the guitar for Gibson. I've got a Standard, and it's as nice as any Japanese guitar I've ever played. Crazy sustain...
I have a Genesis Standard, no inlays. Someone put an Ibanez pickup in the neck slot and moved the jack to the bottom edge (where it belongs) Really nice, very hot guitar, I have to change my amp settings if I switch guitars.
