    [​IMG] [​IMG] Hi all,
    I have been playing guitar for 40 years and have never owned an Epiphone. I was able to pick this one up from a friend. As near as I can tell it is from 1991, made in Japan. Does anybody have any stories or knowledge of this model? The previous owner added the Bigsby and replaced the stock pups with Seymour Duncan Antiquities. Loving it so far but I am thinking about changing the spring in the Bigsby to a taller one. Thoughts and comments welcome.

    That's weird. I submitted a comment, but didn't notice that the page was slowly loading and thought that I clicked outside of the "Post Reply" button, so I clicked it again, saw duplicate comments, and deleted one.

    Anyway, it went something like:
    Welcome to Epi Talk. She's a beautiful guitar. I don't know anything about Bigsbys.

    I'm no expert either, I've still got that B5 / modded Vibramate combo sitting in a box. It was bought after Irma last year in celebration of still having a guitar to put it on yet I haven't brought myself to put it on. I even bought a Reverend "Soft Touch" spring for it and let @Dave J do his signature mods.

    I just like the feel of her as is right now.
