    Just in Europe, nice move bowels. This Joe kook is getting on my nerves. He is every place. He sells Epiphones, then says that they are for kids. I get more spam about what he is up to and now selling cool guitar 5 to 7 thousand miles from me. I think this guy is out just to mess with my head. Ha,Ha Joey I have one!

    So it's a Firebird one. Nice.
    I can't see it just being Europe only, market is too big for Joes guitar for Epiphone to miss out on sales.

    So if it's a Firebird I & the specs lists a "humbuckeR" then does that mean its a single PUP? I think that would be awesome! Does Joe have a gibby they're modeling this after? I really wanna see some pics!

    I bet its a les paul body with a firebird neck and headstock..
    It will be like the bonabyrd but with 1 humbucker.. Thats my thoughts anyways.
    I can imagine it will be very much the same as in the picture... What do u guys think?

    I really need to learn how to resize pictures.....

    No it will be the Firebird 1. The spec is stating Neck Through Neck. That's Firebird spec not Les Paul. I believe a lot of the previous Epiphone Firebirds have not been neck through so this will be interesting.
    I think they would have kept the name Bonabyrd if it was just that.

    I have been watching this one closely. It looks like thomann pulled it from their site. Very disappointing if this doesn't happen.
