Epiphone ES-300 strat style guitar.

I recently bought a guitar, it's an epiphone ES-300 strat style guitar. At only $59.00 I just couldnt resist. But the reason why I am posting this thread is because I need some information about these guitars. Basically when they were produced, where they were produced and if any one knows what kind of wood they are. If any one out there reads this any information you can provide about these guitars I would greatly appretiate it.

It depends. The very oldest of them had mahogany bodies. The ones in the 90s on are plywood (they call it laminate). They are usable if set up correctly but rarely sell for over $75. Maple necks, sometimes 3 piece. I suspect the early ones were MIJ and the later ones MIK.

Guitar dater project

Theyre quite nice I had the bass version from the early 90's It was really solid. I used that site up there to date it. They make a really good super strat with a little work.

the only guitar I have still that I want to know the date of I cant find anywhere that does it. Hamer has a weird s/n system. I was surprised to find out my jackson is and early production model. S/n says 1993.
