I got this today. It's a 2001 Epiphone Slasher in Metallic Light Blue . It's a Chimera of sorts with a Firebird body and an Explorer bolt-on Maple neck. The pickups E-Series "Ultra Hot humbuckers" with engraved E-Series logo on the pickup covers.

I remember they had an fx model with built in effects...always saw it in guitar mags and catalogs circa 2002 for stupid cheap but never could find one to try.

I think he just finds these things in the pockets of old jackets while settling into the new house.

I like oddities like this.

Btw, is that a Randall Commando II Amp in the pic Westy?
I had one of those years ago, it weighed a ton and I couldn't dial a decent sound in on that thing no matter what. Was glad to see the back of it.

Thanks! Here are some specs for the slasher .

Epiphone Slasher: 2001 Limited Edition(800 made)
- 2 E-Series "Ultra Hot" Humbuckers
- E-logo die-stamped Pickup Covers
- Die-cast tuners
- Chrome Hardware
- Explorer-S Headstock
- Indian Rosewood fingerboard
- Dot Inlays
- Maple Neck with "Super Slide" Satin Finish
- Bolt-on Neck Joint
- Stop-bar / String Thru Body Design
- E-Series Smooth Tone potentiometers
- 1 Vol / 1 Tone Knobs
- 3-way Selector Switch
- Passive Electronics

Epiphone Slasher FX: 2001-2002(200 made)
- Onboard Distortion and Chorus
- 1 vol / 1 tone / 1 Distortion Gain
- 2 Mini Toggles for Effects Board
- Active Electronics

Colors:
- Metallic Black

My amp is a Commander I. It's an RG-120 like the Commander II but it has a single 15" speaker in a closed back cabinet. I think it sounds good,especially with guitars with single coil pickups,plus it matches my tele.

Thanks for the info Smile

I see now it has one speaker, mine had two and was on wheels. To be fair it was okay on a clean setting but hated pedals. The Overdrive was harsh and low gain too.

I'm totally feeling the upside-down-ness of that Slasher, and the drooping headstock. And the coral tele. I feel like if you combine the two, you might get this:

(well, sorta)
maybe I'll put a blackguard on it...
