    I like it. Might buy one if it plays as good as it looks

    Well thats really a bargain .... getting a Slash signature for $1200.

    The plaintop Gibson model costs $5000 and $6500 with signature - so the signature here costs $1500

    the epi version without the signature is $900 - so the signature with the Epi pencil is $300
    and with the Gibbo pencil it's x5 :doh:

    For $1200 that Epiphone better play itself.

    It doesn't even look that good. They went with a green burst, but they chose cream pickup rings, a cream 'chip and amber speed knobs? :facepalm:

    The price is insulting, but Slash signatures have always been overpriced.

    There has been quite a few Asian (not counting Japanese) guitars that retail for over $1K lately.

    It would look significantly better with black plastics and chrome hardware. That said, I don't like green that much anyway so I won't buy it. It's cool that there's an offering for Slash fans that doesn't cost as much as a car though.

    I do like the look of the guitar, but the thick neck makes it a no go for me. I only like the Slim Taper Neck Les Paul's.

    For $1200 you can buy a Trib+ with case, sell the '57s in it and add the Seymores and still have enough pocket change to buy a decent little amp. Seems a bit on the spendy side for a Epi to me
