    Hey, Suicidehummer here from the original EpiWiki! It's great to see our work didn't go to waste after all! As you could probably tell I was most interested in the more obscure '70s and '80s models (having a Les Paul 2 myself).

    Dude! Great to see you! I'm glad that you finally made contact after all these years! I just want to say thank you for getting the project started in the beginning even if it didnt work out for you guys in the end. It was great inspiration and a good start for disseminating Epiphone info.

    Your info on the 1970's and 1980's stuff was extremely helpful in the beginning. It took me a couple years to hunt down catalogs and other information on that era. And I love that era as well! Your information on the Epiphone strat guitars was priceless to me.

    Good to see you here and I hope you stick around. There is a new Epiphone forum started by Alex, the owner of this site. You may be interested in it. Its brand new ( a few days) so things are a little slow, but we are working on it. If you have the time, stop by.

    Epiphone Talk

    Also, there is an "about" section on the wiki that mentions your efforts at the beginning of the wiki's history. Take a look and let me know if you want any of that information amended to be more accurate or whatever. I went by what I knew happened at the time, but I left out any of the drama BS.

    Again, great to see you!

    It's great to see that you guys actually accomplished such a daunting task. We were just hoping to clear up some common misinformation. I figured it was all for naught after the site went down. I had seen the new wiki a few times before and wondered if it had any connection to ours. Now I know!

    And yeah, I was really intrigued by the S-Series, being the most common Epis of that era and yet still having very little info out there. That and the transition from Matsumoku to Samick. Ironically, I only finally played an S-600 for the first time a week ago at GC. It needed work though and they wanted $300! Usually those go for dirt cheap.

    I'm not on here much b/c I'm not a big LP guy but I frequent ETSG. I saw the link on there to your new forum and I'll definitely join.

    As for the history, it seems pretty accurate as I recall.

    Hey guys I just ordered one of these and I'm not seeing that exact model on the wiki. There's a few that are close. The closest is the '65 Maestro Deluxe G-400 but the page on the PB Limited edition custom says it has Probucker 2/3s in it and has a bound headstock, like the triple pickup customs.

    When it gets in would you want some pics or anything for the Wiki? Anybody else familiar with this particular model? I can start another thread on it once it's in my hands.

    It seems that I have crossed the '65 Maestro Deluxe with the SG Custom PE. Not sure how that happened , but I have Custom pics in the '65 Maestro entry. Oops. I'll have to sort that out tomorrow. Thanks for pointing this out.
