    for a few $$ more you can get a MiJ 'Single Cut' that doesn't need any Plek-Job :naughty:

    The similarity ends with the body shape and control configuration.

    The Epi has higher-end Gibson p'ups, binding on neck & body, long tennon, locking Grovers, complete hi-gloss finish, & hard shell case.

    The Gibson has the cheaper p'ups, no binding, no-name tuners, is virtually unfinished, and has no case but a cheapo gig bag.

    There is no comparison, IMO. Epiphone FTW :thumb:

    Thanks truckermde! The Epi T Plus, better p'ups, long tennon, locking Grovers, HS case, body hi-gloss, all a nice PLUS!
    Binding (neck/body), gloss finish on the neck, and 2017 colors, not so much. I can fix the neck finish but did they make them in other colors in previous years and still have all the PLUS features?
