    Same color scheme as the Tribute+. Does the headstock look oversized?

    The headstock is oversized compared to the regular Epiphones you'll see today, like the Les Paul and G400. It is the same as the Dot I believe.

    The people who loved the old ones really love them, i wonder if the new ones are lighter, i remember the old ones being really, really heavy.

    They are great playing and sounding guitars.

    I got a lot of usable tones out of the one I played.

    Sign me up for one in Trans-black (or whatever the hell it's called). I'm in.

    Eli:wave:

    BTW, I like my guitars on the heavy side.

    Oh, but I do. Never had a problem with guitar weight.
    I'm 6'8"/280 anyway. What's aonther few lbs? Hell, I'll give my 5-year-old a piggy back ride or a ride on my shoulders anytime she wants it.
    Shit, I'm only 27. I'll be fine. At worst, a couple Ibuprofen after hauling my HALF STACK and helping my drummer with his stuff afer the gig. Not to mention our PA.

    I'll live. Jumping all over the stage all night with an 8-10 lb piece of wood and metal strapped on my shoulder doesn't bother me a damn bit.

    Eli:wave:

    EDIT: I do see your point... Wouldn't really want to do a 4 hour show with a 13 lb Norlin... Although I would if I had to.
