    saw this posted by new owner on Epi FB page. Owner hasn't responded to my inquiry about it.
    Is this a special Sweetwater issue...... 'Mojave Faded' ?
    (if it is, the pic on Sweetwater website doesn't look nearly as nice )
    I think it's gorgeous......

    Yeah that's a great color. I wouldn't mind getting a Double Cut when they come out.

    ^^^^ i went to epi site the other day...somehow I missed that pic :doh: :420:

    The owners pic I posted above kind of minimizes the hi-gloss (unlike sweetwater or epiphone sites) and that is what struck my fancy
    Great figured top and color scheme but the Hi Gloss kills it for me

    I think it's a Honey Burst because this fretboard looks like rosewood and the new models (Mojave fade) are made with pau ferro.

    Check out Sweetwater. They have several finishes "coming soon". $599 I think.

    My PTP Honey Burst isn't anywhere near as gorgeous as the guitar I posted above..
    But.... cycling thru the PTP's on the Epi website there is a considerable difference in the appearance of the fretboards. Some very light...Some really quite dark. And all supposedly pau ferro.

    The guitar I posted above looks nothing like my PTP Honeyburst...

    If I wasn't saving up for a New Gibson LP Standard ( Now that Gibson is headed in the right direction) I would Def buy this Mojave Fade edition...

    Thanks, perfect timing for me.

    I think the burst looks sweet, and if I'm being truthful...... that guitar would have to be very flawed for me not to buy. Lol .

    I've been waiting on the d.c. for a long while, and the new version looks killer.
