Hey guys I just wanted to let you all know this. I got mine today and all I can tell you is go buy one! I'm am literally in awe on how nice this guitar is. I haven't bought an Epi for years and have been strictly buying Gibson. But the second I caught wind of the specs on these guitars I ordered one from AMS immediately and shockingly it is here already. Literally ordered it 3 days ago! Yeah ebony board, great pups, 50's neck and a Silverburst finish all for $800 bucks hell yes I said. Gibson should be ashamed. Epi is making them look bad. There isn't one thing I can find to nit pick on this Indonesia made Epi. It's flawless and the ebony board flat out makes the one on my 2011 Gibson custom look like crap. It's is nice and black but what thrills me most is how tight grain and smooth it is. So for anyone out there waiting for some feedback... Yup these are as epic as they seem and you won't be disappointed. Also the guitar is extremely lightweight and has a kill pot not mentioned in the sales ad. I bought this guitar purely for the specs and didn't know who Hinds was other than some guy in a band and on game of thrones lol. Pups sound great to my ears. These will be out of stock very soon once word gets out. After seeing what Epi is putting out with this V I'm going to buy one of those Bjorn Gelleto LP Customs (whoever the hell he is) now with similar specs and price today.
