    Hi,

    I've just picked this guy up on eBay (Australia) for what I believe to be a bargain price (AUD$500 = US$325). Neck is nice and straight, no fret wear to speak of, electronics all work fine, a few little nicks and very slight buckle rash only.

    The serial number is all numerals (ie. no letter prefix) = 21177074.

    Check out the photos here -

    Research I've done online suggests that it's a 1968 or 1969 model, based on the raised logo and headstock shape. It's obviously some type of copy of a Gibson EB-2, but not a close copy, due to the floating bridge and tailpiece.

    Any info on the model number and confirmation of the vintage would be great.
