What should I know about these? Give me the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Someone has offered me a 2002 Epiphone Elitist SG '61 in trade for my MIJ Fender '62 Reissue (ST-62), and I have no idea how to value the Epiphone. There is no Price Guide on Reverb; there are 5 for sale on Reverb with a huge range of $750-1100, which is as high or higher than the Price Guide for a Gibson '61 Reissue.

here is some information


Fujigen made €pis are top of the line
personally I prefer them to any Gibson

hard to find, SGs are offered over here in the €800-1000 range
Thanks. I appreciate the info.

I've been a strat guy for the most part until picking up a coupe of Epis (LPJ and Special 2P90) in May. When I was offered the Elitist SG in trade, I was lost. I know my strat resources, but I don't really know where to turn for info on other brands.
