    Now Gibson can funnel all of the super-stratish designs to Kramer, which they now own.

    My dad was an Epiphone dealer in the 90s and I still have what started life as a T310. There may have been a manic episode and chop saw involved.

    From what I remember, this thing new was well below the quality of Glarry type $100i-$150ish guitars you can buy now.

    I got the 3 of mine all second (or third,fourth, etc.) hand...thought the necks were pretty comfortable and for $100, pretty hard to beat.

    Definitely not comparable to like a MIM Fender but for $100 range but at the time I was playing Gibson Les Pauls so having a super cheap Strat and Tele setup the way I like for less than $300 combined was a nice way to through the S&T sounds into my mix.

    I do find it hypocritical of Gibson to sue other companies for things they do themselves...but that is business. Kinda like I'm sure most of the people on this forum would want DiMarzio to not enforce the double cream trademark but business is business.

    I remember seeing that in the store and laughing at it. I am guessing Fender rejected whatever the estate wanted.

    Wow! That was pretty bad. Especially, the "Authentic Hendrix" sticker. I think a "Hello Kitty" Squier has more class.

    I think it was a different Gibson organization back then.

    Can't edit. That comes with "Gibson" on the trussrod cover.
