So I have been playing guitar now for 3 months. I started with a Kramer I found next to a dumpster. We’ll I pulled the trigger on this ‘96 Czech made Epiphone. Payed $370 out the door (Guitar, Case, and strap)

As a complete Newb please let me know what y’all think.
What is this worth? Did I overpay?
Can yal tell me anything about it?
What kind of pickups does it have?

I’m learning from the Yousician app.

Thank you all,
Ricardo aka PoetRuiz 8B6EB16E-0B56-41E3-BD27-6141F9853672.jpeg

Wow, I didn’t know they were ever made there. I wish they would do a run like the Chinese one with the open book headstock for the US Market.


That is a fine looking LP Ricardo.

Welcome! The guitar looks good! With the case and all the stuff included, it sounds like a good deal to me.
Just one thing I'd check - while that case looks good, it's not the most conventional type of case to use for a Les Paul . It's probably not an issue because Epiphone headstock angles are a bit different, but try to avoid letting the headstock touch the bottom of the case when closed. The part where the neck is being supported by the case should lift it up just enough so that the headstock isn't touching.
