Gibson/Epiphone Butterfly Guitar

Posted by Hollie on Wed, 07/10/02 - 15:53:26.

I saw a guitar (Epiphone E-02) on ebay and didn't get it but am looking for it now. It is an acoustic-electric and it has a butterfly below the strings and a crescent moon with a star on the headstock. If anyone knows where one is please e-mail me. Thanks

Re: Gibson/Epiphone Butterfly Guitar

I saw this guitar on ebay listed as a 1953 guitar (b.s.), yet the thing had a current electric console with the bass/treble/vol, etc part. The seller said it had been in storage for 50 years (b.s.) and is in great shape... weren't acoustic/electrics started in the late 70's?

These look like good guitars though. If anyone wants to sell theirs for under $100, write to me please.

Re: Gibson/Epiphone Butterfly Guitar

Electric Accoustics started in the 70s? (b.s.) I am sure John Lennon would have been shocked that he was playing a guitar that did not exist yet in the movie Hard Days Night (1964), i.e., the Gibson 160E (an electric acoustic made in 1954)...Electric Acoustic guitars were first made by Gibson guitars just after WWII (1948); the guitar in question here is a cutaway, a very old style guitar and was part of the Orville Series (as in Orville Gibson), but Epiphone won a lawsuit and claimed rights to produce the series. The date you say the man mentions, 1953, is exactly right on! Thanks, Lisa Skierski (Rolling Stone)



I have been trying to find out what this "butterfly" guitar is worth. Mine says it is made in Korea and has the same butterfly on the body and moon/star on the head. It is the EO -28 model. I haven't been able to even find a picture of one.

Any help would be appreciated.


If you get any word

Hi there, I really want to know the worth as well..

Input on this guitar

It's an Epiphone EO-2, made in Korea in the 90s as part of the "Orville Collection." Front, back and sides are laminated walnut.
