    Very awesome. I think id get the bigsby one. It's sweet looking. Given their recent history though, this guitar may be out by jan 2016!!!! Lol. So you got plenty of time in between casinos!

    Very happy to hear this! He is the second coming of Hendrix IMHO! His style, passion, and tones are so refreshing! So many guitars, so little time and money!
    Where's my piggy bank?!? :)

    Nice, and good thing those are MSRP prices! :shock: The "Street" price should be about $400 less than that (or so). If they were Elitist models, then that would make sense. (and be a good deal!). :)

    Based on pricing of other Epiphones, MSRP of $1,332 means $799 street price. $849 with Bigsby.

    Never fancied blue guitars much, but this may be my ticket into that and hollow bodies.
    Sweet! Thanks for the heads up elche :)

    Depending on the price when they hit the street I'll have one with a Bigsby. The only thing that will stop me is if the price creeps up too close to a used Elitist.

    I saw GCJ live last year and of course he played his Casinos all night, but recently it seems the SG bug has bit him.

    He did a solo on the foo fighters new album and Pat Smear lent him an SG for the track. After it was done Pat told him to keep the SG because he made it sound better than he ever could.

    Gary may have some other, ummm, "talents" as well. :laugh2:

    As for the BnB Casino, I have an Elitist, and love it. If I didn't own that, I'd go for this, with the Bigsby. :thumb:
