Funny thing - on that same day I talked to this guy, I've been to three other music shops in Dublin and none of 'em had Vintage v100 in stock (plus the "convincing" shop, which makes four).
Today I was in a shop, and was told that I wouldn't notice enough difference between my V100 and an Epiphone to make changing worth while.
