    Epis from France. My first has been the LP, then I bought the korean Sheraton II and two month ago came the Korina bass.

    The Sheraton is definitely a great instrument in my opinion, surely the best value for the money kind of 6-strings; the flying V bass is also very interesting (please note that I'm a newbie bass player).

    Cheers!

    I only wish I had some of the gorgeous guitars in here. :wow: Sweet collections, all around. I only have my on LP, so far. Great idea, Peter!

    One question: I counted a few Thunderbirds, but not a single Epi Firebird. That is next on my list. So, is there no love for the F-bird or are they just that rare?

    You guys are a whole bucket full of awesome!

    In my case it's just been bad timing, I haven't seen one for sale locally at a good price, when I had any disposable dosh. Would snap one up if I found one at the right price and right time. Would be nice to have a sister for my Thunderbird.

    Yep. But better than the Gibby 1963 that comes up a few lines below for USD 27,900! They are pricey, but oh so pretty... I figure I'll do well under $700 but am hoping for under $500. I only see new Epi FB studios going for that. The VII's are worth the extra for me. I want the 3 mini HBs so I don't have to get a strat. :dude:

    My new SG G-400. The pics don't really do justice to how nice it looks, the finish looks washed out in the pics. I've had it about two weeks and it's quickly becoming one of my favorites to play.

    I'm actually refitting this guitar as we speak to use again. I might even clean it.
    (In all fairness, it has been sitting, dormant at the rehearsal space for a few years.
    It was used for many years in punk clubs and college frat houses with no case. I made a couple of those tuning pegs out of quik steel on a saturday afternoon van ride to U Conn after a friday night mishap at Lehigh . :cool:

    Ok, back to our daily program of polishing and pontificating.
