    Love the black and gold case! Just like vintage 50s customs!

    That looks really sweet. Congrats!
    I wonder how close the build quality is to my Edwards LPC Sykes or to a LPC Elitist.
    It's nice to see the proper ebony board.
    Epiphone really needs to come out with a LPC Tribute Plus with ebony board.

    Glad to hear you like it, looks killer, and I'm very interested. I'd have to sell my 1960 v3 to get it, but I might. Love black customs, and I like the idea of these pickups for my heavier stuff.

    How much are these running new in US $?

    Edit - I see Sweetwater has one for $799. Almost 9 lbs, so not a lightweight for sure.

    No it's smaller than a '58 neck. Beefier than the usual 60's slim though. They call it a Custom '59, I call it perfect...:cool:

    I just ordered myself this beauty. The interesting thing is apart from you opening this thread, there's not a single review or feedback about this guitar, on forums or youtube. One would think that kids would go crazy for LP with EMGs and gold hardware with ebony fretboard.

    Seven,
    Now that you have had the Bjorn for about a month, how is your over all impression?
    Still impressed? Or are there things about it now that you thought could be better or different, etc.. ?

    How much better than an epi standard would this be?

    Also how does this compare to the Gibby studio in terms of sound and build quality? Here in Canada, they would be very close in price range when all is said and done.

    it looks as if it has an upgraded Bridge (more like a Tonepros) compared to the Standard epi Bridge with rattlespring. Can you confirm that?

    I wish I could afford one! Instead I modded one of my les pauls with and EMG 81 and use thick strings and tune to drop Bb and play some In Flames tunes... as close as I can get.
    only thing I'd change about the gelotte sig is the knobs, reflectors would look sick.
