Antique shop owner wanted $89 but said $50 cash. I said how about all the cash in my wallet. So I now own a very Gibson-looking 2001-2002 Epiphone SG Series E Bully electric solid-body 6-string for $35 USD.
With a very limited production run Spring 2001-2002, the Bully was distinctive in its asymmetrical headstock with ‘Dovewing’ logo, clear plastic knobs, its color names, and its simplicity
This from Guitar List: The Epiphone Bully (2001 – 2002) was an SG style electric with a 24.75″ scale length bolt-on maple neck.
The neck had a slim taper profile and “super-slide” satin finish, rosewood fingerboard and dot inlays topped off with the E-Series Dovewing headstock.
Pickups were two open coil humbuckers controlled by single volume and tone controls and a 3-way selector switch. Finish options were black, blood stain red or bruise purple.
My pawnshop buddy Dennis at Eagle Loan on Vernon St. in Roseville supplied the necessary gig bag, AXL medium strings and purple MADE IN USA nylon strap (Go Sac Kings!).
Can’t wait to hear this beauty sing.
