I had to sell a couple of Jazz guitars last year due to the economy. I swore to myself if I ran across a deal I would replace one. This Epiphone Joe Pass came up on CL this morning for $300 with original case. It is a 1993 Samick Korean Factory model. I drove over an hour to check it out. Wow, it was set up terribly, but looked almost new with the exception of some hardware tarnish. I grabbed it hoping I could get it set up right. Worked on it for about an hour, new strings, truss rod and bridge adjustment. Plays and sounds great now. I am a happy camper. Not sure how long they made this color, it is actually darker in person than the picture shows, but I like it. Now they only make the natural and tobacco burst. Any info on these older Joe Pass models would be appreciated.
