    Any other owners and/or fans of these amazing guitars? Definitely the best $300 I've ever spent, it's been my main guitar since the day I got it. And the cream pickup ring I put in the bridge pickup just makes it even more beautiful!

    I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands. I'm in love with Wilshires, haha.

    Have you seen the newest reissues with tremolo arms?

    I just got an email about them from Epiphone.

    Looks pretty cool.

    Some high profile Wilshire use lately, most notably Frank Iero using a Wilshire onstage since the beginning of the World Contamination tour, and his new sig model being modeled after one

    Frank's new Wilshire looks sexy as hell, with the regular Epi, non-batwing headstock. And in vintage white! :shock:

    Frank has possibly the sexiest Wilshire I've ever seen. When that sig model comes out I'm getting it for sure.

    Aged white+chrome/nickel hardware is an amazing mix somehow

    Gee thanks, Elekari, now I have GAS for a wilshire.

    They don't look too bad and seem pretty versatile.

    Only $300 too? I'll take it :thumb:
