      I dig that guitar a lot.
      But talk about having to use a wound G.

    Not only do I like everything about this guitar but I also like Elderly Instruments.  Not only is Elderly Instruments one of the best music stores I have ever encountered but they are also one of the most reliable, and longest lasting, dealers of old guitars I have ever bought old and playable guitars from.  If somebody was interested in acquiring and playing old guitars I highly recommend Elderly Instruments as an excellent place to start.

    Like the description says, this version of the Epiphone Century is very similar to, and made in the same Kalamazoo, Michigan factory as, the same era Gibson ES-125T.  The pickup is a genuine 1960s Gibson P-90.  At the time this Epiphone Century was made Epiphone was not Gibson's budget brand- Kalamazoo was.

      I'll second that.  I've never bought a guitar from Elderly, but I have bought a lot of other stuff from them over the last decade+: books, CDs, strings, miscellaneous equipment, and I've called them to ask questions about some of their used guitars.  Never had anything but a first-class experience.

    It's pretty good. I like semi-hollows and P90s, but the lack of cutaway and lack of a second pickup would probably deter me if I was looking to buy. So I say it's hot, but wouldn't buy it.

      Must be the Americana music boom driving prices up, because a decade ago the equivalent Gibson or Guild would have gone for like $600.
