Bought this '06 Epi off of Alistair6 (great guy to deal with).
Dawgtown buckers (hand wound US) which sound great with the SD Triple Shot pup rings.
I found a case on kijiji for a good price too (deadhead emblem on it. I still have to glue down the edge though).
I think that he'll be happy. He's been wanting a Explorer for a while.
Told him it's an early x-mas gift.
