    I'm surprised that there hasnt been much talk on Epiphone. I'm betting a few companies saving some reveals for musikmesse in the coming months.

    Guys, it's happening

    Edit: the description says he's the "lead singer" of Mastodon??

    The specs are pretty sick. Lace pickups, ebony board. Might have to get one of these.

    Well he's one of them... I dunno if they really have a "lead singer" tbh. I guess Troy is the most frontman-like.

    That V is pretty cool, I like it.

    Maybe it is just that pictures, but the pickups look like they have ever so slightly more space in between them compared to a normal Gibson V. Or maybe it's just how the Lace pickups look.

    If I were to ever buy a V, it would probably be this one! Love that silverburst finish. :yesway:

    I had a Razorback V255 that I absolutely hated and really turned me off to V's.

    This is starting to change my mind, and although doesn't look very versatile is something I plan on checking out.

    It think they appear that way due to the binding and the paint job.

    Being an Epiphone, I wonder how much it'll cost.

    I'm betting around $800. Same price as the other signature models they introduced.

    The horns do indeed look thinner, though. Both thinner and longer.

    Here's how a Gibson V Custom SHOULD look. Shorter and stubbier horns.

    It looks more like a 1958 V. The Epi looks closer to a 1967 V, but with more stuff going on.

    Looking good. I still can't believe Gibson wont just make a version , but then again their logic has been down right baffling at times.

    I'm guessing Brent didn't want to stroke Henry J's ego. :lol:

    Well Gibson made one the most beautiful Explorers I have ever seen for Kelliher AND he got a Les Paul. If Brent really wanted a Gibson signature you'd think they would work it out.

    Having said that, this is the only Epiphone that has caught my attention. I will seriously consider buying one if the opportunity presents itself.
