Hi,
Bough this one today. it is a real one 5120. it is write in.
A lot of parts are missing. But neck and body seems to be really nice.
She was sleeping in box during last 20 years and she's mine today. :)
It seems that it was one of the first epi built in japan.

I have to find lot of parts. lot of work for me :D
- Do you think that the machine head could be a good equivalent: The Ping P2680
- Have got 1 pickup in bad condition, where find other one (instead ebay)
- idem for the bridge, I don"t know how is the name for the second part of the bridge.
Can you advise me to find them?
tks.

Very nice find. I also just bought the same bass... well the EA260 version, but basically the same bass. Did you ever locate a source for parts? I need to find tuners and a pick guard.


Thanks, Aaron
