    It's pretty nice, imho.

    They can do this and have a model with a wrap around and two P90s with the bat wing headstock and I would get one. :dude:

    I don't work there.....

    I can't imagine to have King Henry as my 'Big Boss'

    ( now I've quoted the statement to make it more clear )

    I like that better than any SG I ever played...I would like the cream off-white, 2 humbuckers with coil splitters and a phase switch... :)

    The original headstock was matching better the body style, imho.

    That's what I told 'em. Batwing or open book or no sale! They're probably changing out the equipment as we speak. My voice carries dammit!

    There is a black Wilshire Pro on ebay now. Just saw it. (Not mine.) My son has one in Pelham green. They have the coil splitting, Alnico Classic pup in neck, and Alnico Classic Plus in the bridge position. A really nice looking and sounding guitar. The one Epiphone has in the top photo would look cooler with dot inlays and bound fingerboard in my opinion.

    That much candy and no binding on the neck?!

    It needs binding.

    I've regretted mot buying a Wilshire reissue for years. This new version seems to be using the Phant-o-matic guitar as a platform rather than a regular Wilshire.

    I'll still but it but it needs the batwing headstock.
