Epiphone 5120 ? Knock-off?

    I'm not a bass expert, just a gearhead, but it seems to be a 70s Epiphone 5120 with the exception of the logo "E" on the headstock and the back plate without the "Made in Japan" and a Serial number.

    The action is quite high at the moment and the previous owner also tricked it out with the gold diamond-plate decal around the bass.

    The label inside is gone with only the residual glue left that's pretty noticeable.

    The case do have the "Japan" label on the hardware.

    Thanks for any input.
