So, a couple days before Halloween I was cruising though eBay and found a damaged but repaired Epiphone LP Standard on eBay for an okay price. Considering the look of the look of the repair and the guy's decent feedback, I shot him an offer, more expecting it to get rejected than anything. Well, it got accepted and the waiting game began. Well, once it arrived I opened the box to find this. The original crack had popped back open. Looking over the more or less undamaged box, it was one of two things that caused the damage: Poor packaging (just wrapped with some nuts at the bottom), or the first repair wasn't done well (just a bit of glue at the bottom of the joint). So, first thing I did was message the seller about it. He offered a full refund and shipping, but I ended up getting a partial refund and getting it repaired. Well, wood glue, clamps, and 16 hours later I had this. Feels very sturdy, holds tune, and sounds great. I still need to fill the gap in the back and clean it up, but I'm going to wait about a week before I do that or put heavier strings on. Overall, with the look, feel, and price of it, I'm pretty happy. Planned changes are filling and sanding off the neck, some Dragonfire Pickups, and a set of 10-52s down to D.
