    Does anyone have one of these Great looking Guitars? Nothing much to go on yet...still waiting. The Johnny A looks Killa too, but maybe just one video out from a consumer.

    Thanks._

    Unless you really like this trendy hipster d-bag, save a few bucks and just buy the regular Inspired by “1966” Century. The only major difference is hipster's has a noiseless P-90 and it's made from 3-ply laminate maple as apposed to the "regular" Century which has a P-90 Pro and is listed as to having laminated maple (probably maple and basswood like a Casino).

    Of course, with the signature model you get a case (always nice!), a strap and a COA signed by this guy that no one will even recall in a few years who he was and why he got a signature guitar.

    So, if your a man with long hair who like to wear it up in a bun like your grandma did and you prefer to buy your skinny jeans in the women's department, then by all means, shell out the extra bucks for this fantastic guitar! If your a guy that really digs the Epiphone Century, buy the non-signature model and use the money you save to buy a case, a strap and still have money left for beard grooming supplies, ironic tattoos and some cool big buttons to stretch out your earlobes.

    Look, I was holding out for an Elitist Casino so I could proudly hold a cork under my nose form time to time. In the meanwhile, I figured I'd get a Korean built Casino to hold me over. After all, everyone knows the Korean ones are far superior to the China ones. I would never be caught dead with a China built Casino. No sir, not me. Then I bought a China built Casino. You'll have to bury me with this guitar. Too precious to even leave to my cat once I depart this clump of clay. The moral of the story: Just buy the regular Century, spring for the case (about another hundred bucks) and don't support the douche bag hipsters of the world.
