Your are viewing an Epiphone E Series Slasher. This was a line Epiphone put out around 2000, see the link: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/document?doc_id=82007. The Epiphone embossed 'buckers really do the job. It has only a few light scratches and is in very nice shape. The red paint is about as nice a metallic red I've seen on a guitar.. It comes with a new Road Runner gig bag which is in fine shape.
This thing sounds surprisingly fine. I upgraded the Caps (capacitors) from the little chip to a Soviet .022 oil and paper cap. These are what companies make new repros of bumble bees. Upgrading the cap opened up the sound and gives what is typically called 'the traditional buttery Les Paul sound'. This may seem like a small change, but definitely a step up in sound quality. Contrary to what some sources say, the cap changes the sound even when the tone control is not in use. I tried A/B testing with one end soldered and the other just held in place and the cap does give a warmer sound with more depth. This is a major bang for the buck upgrade.
I have tons of guitars (many more coming to Ebay) and this change makes this Epi sound better then a $3-400 guitar should. I am on disability and plan on spend several hours per week upgrading Epiphone guitars and reselling them here. I manly have made in Korea models, but will also look at other interesting models. I have read and believe that Epiphone has redesigned their pickups r
