    I went to my local music store today and found a Univox hollow body that looks a lot like a EPI EA-260. I was wondering if these are the same instrument internally. I'm mostly curious about the pick ups and whether or not they are the same. Here are the pics.

    I am pretty sure they were made in the same factory, Matsumoku i think. Any info :D

    it was my understanding that Epi`s,Univox and Lyle`s were all made at that same factory.

    Yea, they're all the same and that is a sweet find my friend. I love to get my hands on one some day, but I fear that they are going ever up in price.

    I've been GAS'n for a EA-260 for some time since I played one when I started working at the store I found this Univox at. Its a good price too. Wasn't sure about the pup's is the big thing. And its still in repair so cant play it :(

    So can anyone confirm or deny if the ones with the black covers are the same as the ones in the Univox?
