    It has the full pick guard, also what pickups would have come in this year model?

    Basically looking to ID this as was it the 66 limited?

    2012 '66 G-400 PRO with Alnico Classic Pro & Pro Plus.

    The Custom Shop Limited Edition stamp is on 95% of all Epiphone since 2012. They're limited, but to how many, 10,000 units ? Epiphone never had a proper Custom Shop, it is mostly marketing.

    So in regards to the pick guard? This has a full pick guard as opposed to Half of the pick guard. What models had the full pick guard and which only had the half pick guard?

    Only the '66 and the bolt neck G-310 had the large batwing pickguard. All others had the small guard and neck tenon piece.

    New 2020 inspired by Gibson changed that.

    How is the neck profile on it ? The usual Slim Taper D or a bit more rounded meat to it ?

    Thanks for the reply, not sure yet waiting on it in the mail.

    What would be the difference between them model wise?
