Dates of manufacture:
The Epiphone Pierced SG was made from 2001 to 2002 as part of the E-Series. It had a mahogany SG shaped body with an X-shaped cut-out - the fingerboard had matching X-shaped inlays. The headstock was also pierced with two metal rings.
Epiphone gave this justification for their Pierced SG design in 2002:
"The SG has always been the axe of choice for those looking for drop-dead cool. Now we've taken an already snarling beast and given it a darker side.
The twin E-Series humbuckers, super fast neck and devil ear double-cut are still the mainstay. But the body is pierced and finished in distressed flat black. Plus we've added X fret markers and double pierced headstock. You've just got to see and hear this rock monster"
