    That's a beauty! Epi has come a long way in the past decade or so, and are some of my favorite guitars.

    It's been a while since I've posted here.
    Anyway, I picked this up a couple of weeks ago.
    It has Gibson Mini Humbuckers and CTS Pots as stock.

    It's not exactly the same as Noel Gallagher's (the colours are darker, but unlike Noel's are the correct shades used on the flag) and the design is only on the front, whilst Noel's extends to the back and sides.
    It looks and feels great. I haven't got any big amps right now, so I've only been running it through practice amps. It sounds amazing through my little Blackstar HT1.

    Epiphone ES335 Pro in Vintage Sunburst. Limited edition and the same price as the Dot in the UK, just harder to get hold of.

    Cheers

    Ok, I am not the biggest lover of the modern Epiphones. Doesn't mean I don't want a Pelham blue SG, just that I feel they are copies of their parents company guitars, and will never be quite like them, no matter what mods you do it.

    That being said, the Epiphones that are their own original design, the Genesis, Spotlite, the Scroll among others, I think can stand toe to toe with ANY guitar in any price range!

    my Epi's are...

    79 Genesis Deluxe. Heavier that a Les of any year, (11.4 Lbs) strung with 11-52 flats, will stand up with any jazz box.

    70's et-260(?) Bouight as a basket case with no original parts other then tuners, neck and body, and yes, that is a banjo bridge on it, gives me that "THUMP" when a thump is needed.

    Mid 70's FT-120. Bolt on neck flat top, that while no Martin, doesn't pretend to be. A great little recording guitar.

    That's interesting.
    Can I ask how you made the pickguard?
    What material did you use and where did you get it from?

    Thanks! Mary's special to be sure. The band at my church bought her as a pressie for me, a few years back. Bought off local craigslist with lots of cool mods by prior owner. New tuners, a Rio Grande in the neck slot, and the fifth pot up near the bridge pickup is a Gretcsh-style master volume.

    Took her to a 3-day meetup, of another forum I'm on, last weekend, and she was a popular girl.

    Plugged this in for the first time in a while this week, fell in love with it all over again:

    [​IMG]

    Pickups have been changed to Bare Knuckle Riff Raffs, everything else is stock, bar the knobs that are now black speed knobs (A purely cosmetic change, but one I like more than the amber knobs). A brilliantly versatile guitar, and a well-made one. In my experience, Epiphone have long put out semis like this that are better-made/feeling than their solid bodies. I owned, a 2004 Dot briefly, which was the tail-end of the Korean production, the above one is a 2009 Chinese one, both feel/felt nicer than any of the Epi LPs I've had.

    NGD cross-post from Backstage...

    I have added to my Epi family, pretty much on a whim.

    I'm not sure whether an Epi "Junior" counts as an "other" Epiphone. Arguably it is in the Les Paul family, and as to setnecks, I would argue they are Les Pauls.

    But with the bolt-neck versions, they are careful to leave Les Paul's signature off the headstock, and just put "Junior" on. So I guess that after dropping a whopping US Grant recently, on a used Epiphone Junior, now I'm up to 4 "others."
