    When AMS kept them in stock, I added one to my shopping cart while I was at work since they offered a limited time 12 mo pay as ya play term... I went to order it that morning when I knocked off work and they were out of stock!! Like out of stock for forever.. slipped right through my fingers!!

    Flamesarewicked, That happened to me when I wanted a Gibson SG-3 a few years ago. I put all my friends and co-workers on alert and a few months later someone found one at a guitar canter in northern CA so I snatched it up. Good luck, keep searching internet sites. It's an amazing guitar!

    My Epiphone Inspired By Custom is a very nice guitar and it is not that heavy. I also have an Epiphone 56 Les Paul Pro and it is a very nice guitar. Epiphone quality has really improved.

    I have one. Decent guitar. Not overly heavy, rings like a bell, P90s are great but hum. Only complaint is that the neck goes from a nice comfy C to a weird shouldery D.

    Stopped by Sam Ash this afternoon and tried this one out 20180127_160026.jpg

    Good looking guitar but...

    How this one made it past quality control is laughable. The ends of the frets were sharp, almost cut your hands sharp!

    The nut looked like it was put in by a blind person.


    It didn't sound bad, but I didn't play it that much because of the stupid sharp frets.

    The one thing that really surprised me was how thick the neck was. It made my Gibson '50s neck feel thin! Probably the thickest neck I have ever come across.

    If it could age properly in 70 or so years and hold up
    will it be worth a thing?
    It will be a test of my duty to keep it forever

    I'll bet in 70 years there won't be any wooden guitars anymore. Could be worth a mint?
