It's worth every penny Ric. You know if I didn't already have one just like it, I would grab it.

Re: Epiphone Elitist for sale

I'd seriously give you the 800$ with no negotiations if I had the money !
This is a beautiful guitar ! I hope she goes to someone who can take good care of her.

Re: Epiphone Elitist for sale

I have a near identical plus top. Killer axe, one of the most beautiful I've seen. The tech who set it up was first like, "Whoa, what a top!" and then all, "Is that an Epiphone? I've never seen a headstock like that." #gettinglostinrabbitholes ftw

Work of art here, F*ck Gibson for canceling this line of guitars. They should have expanded it...

Re: Epiphone Elitist for sale

What kind of neck is on it? I know its 50's, but is it a fatter or thinner one?

Re: Epiphone Elitist for sale

Find it close to my other fifties necks. Not the slimmest, comparable to most 50s style I've played..

Re: Epiphone Elitist for sale

What people need to understand is these are not really Epiphones. Well, alright they are indeed Epiphones, but what I mean is they are so sweet. Mine blows away any LP I tried in GC my last time over there. I love my Gibson R7 and Gibson 68 RI Custom but the Elitist seriously plays as good and with the thinner neck I am able to play with greater ease. If anybody out there has $800 for a guitar, you must buy this man's axe. You will not be sorry.

Re: Epiphone Elitist for sale

I agree with Tonemeister. Absolutely amazing guitars and at $800 is a just a steal. I'm actually on the look for this same guitar in the custom model because I love these so much! If you want a Les Paul, why are you still looking???
