    Someone needs to buy this.

    If you're not familiar with Epics, it's an entry level Alembic. That's like saying a relatively affordable Rolls Royce. Made by the same people with the same craftsmanship as the $30,000 super customs. Amazing detail. IMO the Epic is equal or superior to many others' most expensive instruments. This would be a great deal if the electronics were stock, but it's even better with the upgrade! I've owned an Epic, and have a Spoiler, which has less flexible electronics than this Epic for sale here, and I can get an amazing array of tones. Do a little research online and you'll see this is a great deal. And no, I'm a not a compensated spokesman for the seller. It just puzzles me when I see great gear at a great price take forever to sell.
