    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

    Update: Actually has an Ebony board

    So Gibson upcharge thousands to use Ebony instead of richlite. Epiphone use Ebony because its easier to ship than rosewood.

    Well I’d be curious to try it.
    I own an Epi LP Standard Plustop Pro and a Gibson LP Studio. The Studio has an Ebony fingerboard and... well I can tell the difference. I find myself more comfortable with Ebony. The Epi is great (and also great looking) but the pickups are not as good.
    With this one I’d have great pickups (and capacitors), Ebony fingerboard and the beautiful top (I like the color). Basically the best of both worlds.
    Only bad thing: you have to add 100euros for the hardshell case... and you’re about 1K euros total.
    Gibson gives a great gig bag with the 18 Tribute... Epi should consider something similar...
    880 including case... I’d consider it.
    What do you think?

    Yes, this is getting out of control for guitars that should come with a hard case, but don't. Any $800-$900 (or more, like this!:Ohno:) Epi ought to have a HSC, as they are the "Flagship/Premium" models, and is shameful they don't.
    My Brent Hinds Flying Vee, and IOMMI SG are both great examples of sweet guitars that come with a Cardboard Box!
