Finally paid this off last week. Is an Anniversary 4001 copy. Made in Korea, I think by Tokai.

Haven't had much time with it plugged in but it feels great. A bit high quality Epiphone feeling.

Only photo I have atm. mashup

Funny shaped Epiphone is the best a Ric copy has done for me, but truth be told I really liked my 330 copy as a suitable gigging replacement for my real one. Not only did I not have to worry about it, but there's many places where having a good Ric copy is a bit more cool than the real thing.

That one looks nice, congrats!

That's the best new guitar photo I've seen. Strong work.

I've got that SG as well and been told I look like Ian Curtis. One man Joy Division tribute band. Once I've got my bass amp working properly. Maybe time to hit up a EHX Clone Theory.

It ain't the easiest bass to play tbh. Pretty much only got it cause Rickenbacker copies are rare and it looks cool as fuck.

Support, provided you strap them all on at once and can pull off double-time hats with your inner knees.

Riding the fake Ric thread coattails, this lame Ric 4080/12 copy with even uglier pickguard recently popped up over here online: EL LANKO.

The bass and 12 string switched, funny R tailpiece + poor fireglo finish make it all look even sillier, if that were possible. Totes devoid of Takeshi double-neck cool.

Bump for better photo. Took the bridge cover off cause it was annoying. Bridge pup looks like a Telecaster bass pickup or something.

Probably could do with a setup but still awesome.
