    Speaking of white customs, I just put my Alpine custom through the paces on some Zep, "Communication Breakdown". Through a 212 Marshall.
    That is ROCK!!

    Carry on.

    What's the construction of these guitars, Folks? Is there a veneer on the maple cap and the rear body as they look pretty authentic if that's the case; and are they nitro or poly?

    Also, what's the difference between Elite and Elitist?

    Sorry to hear that you may have to sell more of your guitars. I am still in love with that MIJ JDM Epiphone i bought from you. Send me a PM if your selling anything else and I will check it out if I have money lol. Also sorry if this is posted in a wrong section.

    No, no veneer on the Plus tops. It's a solid piece of book matched flamed Maple. The finish is poly but it's hand rubbed so it's not thick. There is no difference in Elite/Elitist, they just had to change the name because Ovation had a guitar called Elite.
