    Hi all, looking for some info about this beautiful guitar that I purchased a few years ago for under $100 (with HSC!)

    Trying to see if it is a solid top. It has some wear from when a pick-up might have been used. Some grains look like they continue thru the top. I know it doesn’t have the “S” after the model number, still the 325 number is harder to find.

    Any thoughts?

    Yeah, the 325S model has that. As seen at the Epi 350 below, the one without an S has a laminated top. No guarantee it's the same for the 325, but it is likely.
    Not easy to determine from photos, but I tend to say laminated from that also.

    Solid top guitars tend to be viewed as higher quality, but that doesn't mean laminated top ones can't sound good. So the main criterium is if you like it.

    Thanks, it sounds great, plays well, very loud too. It could use some fretwork. The original plastic bridge cracked and was replaced with bone. I was thinking about replacing the plastic nut one day, but another thought is, if it ain’t broke...
