20 Most Recent Epiphone Aj-100 Acoustic Guitar Questions & Answers


That depends on which way the neck is bent. Tighten if bowed away from the strings, loosen if bowed toward the strings. Go only a little at a time letting the neck settle as you go. If not familiar with the procedure you can cause damage to your guitar. I sugget taking it to the shop.

Sometimes the truss rod (nut you are referring to) will do the trick. The truss rod runs under the fingerboard and allows you to give the neck relief or tension. Some truss rods are dual action but I'm guessing yours is designed simply to give basic relief of the neck. I would make sure the truss rod is adjusted properly before sanding down the saddle. If you sight down the neck you should be able to see the relief in the neck - just use the string as your straight-edge. Most guitars need a slight amount of relief but higher-end guitars can be almost straight (better fretwork.) Once the neck has been adjusted correctly you can move forward with the setup.

Make sure the nut is also the proper height. If the nut is too low (1mm height between bottom of string and first fret) you should get it replaced by someone capable of doing such a thing. If the nut height is okay I would suggest moving forward cautiously by sanding the bottom of the saddle. Make sure this is done patiently and carefully as it can drastically change the sound and playability of the guitar. Hardly any material needs to be taken off to lower the action just a little. Error on the side of not-enough than too much. Make sure the bottom of the saddle remains flat! If the bottom isn't flat the guitar can sound horrible and if there is an undersaddle pickup it might not pick up evenly. The easiest way to do so is to tape some sandpaper rough side up on a flat surface (just don't pick something like mom's heirloom or something important in case it gets scratched.

Good Luck!

Your guitar was made at the Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA
between 1962 and1964, most likely in 1962.

Korea, 1996, July as best as I can make out from https://forum.gibson.com/topic/139846-epiphone-serial-number-decoding/
without knowing the model and the condition, there's no telling what it's value is. Check reverb.com for similar guitars
safe to say tho that a Korean made Epiphone is not a classic (pre-Gibson) and will not be a high value guitar.

Sounds like perhaps a Les Paul Special II, but more detail is needed to say for sure. There was a lot of variation in their Les Paul models. Posting a photo of both sides and the headstock is best.

-Has the guitar any binding, and what colour?
-Is the back of the guitar white or all black?
-Exactly what is on the front of the headstock, 'Epiphone', the 4-diamond logo, anything else?

The controls should be setup in pairs (as long as the electronics haven't been modified. The two closest to the pickups are the volumes and the other two are the tone controls. The top knob set should be your neck pickup and the bottom set is for the bridge.

Schematics and wiring diagram for the typical les paul (sheraton) controls:

That serial number was used more than once.

If it has 'Made in USA' on the headstock, it was made at the Bozeman Plant, MT, USA on July 21st, 2000.

Otherwise it was made in Korea in March, 2002.
