    Edit: Is it just me or the lights, or is Joe graying quite a bit?

    Tasty guitar. I was hoping for something around $399-$499 but alas Sweetwater has them starting at $799.

    This I don't understand. They put them more expensive than the green Les Paul, which has 2 Gibson humbuckers (VS one Epiphone humbucker on this one) and a bigsby (instead of a compensated tailpiece). How is this one more expensive to make?

    Make it a Gibson and take Joe's name off of it, and I'd be tempted.

    Just replace the truss-rod cover? :)

    Not a clue if Joe's name is anywhere on it though.

    800 for an epiphone is a though sale. From what I've heard the brett hinds V wasn't exactly stellar although it came with a much more attractive package.

    Right. :lol: My eyes went right to the sitar, then to the EBMM.

    I didn't see the Firebird there, though, but TBH I only looked for about 12 seconds before I didn't care anymore.

    That pic is pretty old. I'm quite sure he's expanded his collection quite a bit since then.
