    I love these guitars, its one of my favorites out of the 26 I own

    just ran across this killer deal

    Used In Store Used USED EPIPHONE DEL REY GTR SNB 8.0 112012 | GuitarCenter

    These are one of the best playing, sounding and looking guitars ever made by epiphone. One of the guitars I left the stock pups in because they sound so good.

    Yes that is a good price.

    Does it have the case?

    What color is it?

    And does it have the original pups?

    Read up on them...they are a bit different. They had to stop making them them due to PRS getting a bit mad. Knob....push pull too.

    I just saw one of these Epi Del Reys (Trans Black Burst) on CL. It looks really nice, and definitely a lot like a PRS SE CU24. The seller says it has "original Bill Laurence OBL Pickups". Are those good? :) Did Epi really stop making these because PRS got on their case?

    That would be a great deal even without the case and strap. Add those in the deal and it's a no brainer to me. I'm glad it isn't around me because I wouldn't be able to resist.

    Sorry, I thought about it but I'm probably going to let it go - can't justify another guitar purchase at the moment. If you want it go for it - maybe the guy will be willing to ship?
