What say you - keepers of all SG knowledge? What's a good, as in realistic, price for an Epi SG Elitist in very good + condition? There's one currently listed on Reverb for over 1k, a Japanese seller. Similar situation on eBay. I have always wanted an Elitist and never in my life owned an Epiphone. I have played a few Epis of various models and series and they all seemed to be super solid instruments. When I heard a few years ago that Elitist line is being discontinued, I was a bit bummed. Last year I missed on a nice LP Elitist, local sale priced at $500. Someone bought it and listed it the next day for $900. If I come across one, and I'd love for it to be an SG, I might pull the trigger if it's in a good shape. Any of you has an Elitist? Are they one step above the Chinese ones of the current production?
