The Effie was a thinline hollowbody guitar (U1935), a copy of the Epiphone Casino. Like the Casino,
it has no center block, whereas a Gibson 335 or Guild Starfire does.
It had a bolt on neck, rosewood fretboard, same head as Badazz, outline decal logo,
two 12-pole humbuckers, finetune bridge, fancy harp tailpiece,
elevated pickguard, 2 volumes and tones. The neck was maple and the body was poplar.
Available in orange sunburst
, cherry red (1)
and jet black(
Also, this is what I believe to be a 12-string Effie, in sunburst(
