This is a buddy's Epiphone guitar. He's had it for years but never used it since he plays only bass (when he ever plays at all). He bought it from another guy for $125 who won it from a local cable game show. Quite the history huh? Anyway, I am going to start guitar lessons and mu buddy loaned me some of his gear to use, but there is always the possibility that I might want to buy the guitar if I find it comfortable during the lessons. Can anyone comment on the model, its value, how it rates for guitars etc. I am a total newb, so I was just hoping for a little more info about it. I can take closer pics of it if someone wanted to see closer detail of something. Thanks as always!
