And some of you young guys too, who might know. I have this Epiphone, that I posted on another thread, but it's not getting seen much, so I thought I'd try this. From the serial number, I think it's a 1965. As I understand it, Epiphone used to get all of the Gibson parts, from their older models, to use up. This one has all the 1963-64 Thunderbird pickups and hardware, and is a long scale. You see alot of the short scales out there, but they don't have the Thunderbird parts. Does anybody know what they called this one, or what model nuber it is? I'm 52, and I have only seen one other one of these in my lifetime.
