Here's the electronics from a current Epic, the only difference is the output jack and the battery connector:

Epic electronics

Can you post a picture of the current condition of the electronics you have? Then I can make sure you'll get all the proper spare parts.

In the instrument file, this is recorded as:

top: Vermilion
accent: Maple pinstripe
body: Mahogany
neck: 5-piece Maple
fingerboard: Ebony
originally made for: Guitar Center, Chicago, IL
birthday: February 21, 1996

There are no previously registered owners.

Hi Mica, Thanks for reply with photo. I attach a photo of my existing electronics as requested, seems I may be a board short? Anyway can you let me know if you can supply me with the missing interconnects etc.

Thanks again

JD.

You've got 2 preamps. The one on the left is a fitler with Q switch. One the right is a bass and treble module.

If you've got 2 pickups, you'll need 2 boards: the pan and the volume. The 1-volume harness includes the output jack too. You'll only be able to use the filter or the bass/treble without some rewiring.

You can order any of these parts from us by phone at (707) 523-2611.

Hi,
Thanks again for the info. Could you let me know the price of these 2 boards (Pan & Vol) before I place an order.
Cheers JD.
