Hello All. New to the forum but I've got 25+ years performing experience. Recently picked up a 2009 Epi T-Bird Pvo V 5 string, always wanted a T-Bird but needed a 5 string, figured I'd kill two birds with one purchase... When I discovered that these were even available (been out of playing for the past 10 years or so) started digging around for one only to discover they were no longer in production so had to go for a used model (kinda hard to find). Yeah I've read all the reviews and was aware of the issues before getting one, not an issue. My questions is - does anyone know when they first started building the Epi T-Bird 5 string, how many years they were in production, when production ended etc? Just curious as to their history. Appreciate any info. Cheers, EdO.
