    Hi, I bought a traditional pro from GC, clearance sale. This was just before the Traditional Pro II came out and I think its a 2015 because the serial number starts with 15.
    Anyway, its a plain top and I was wondering if traditional pros were available with flame tops based on some comments I've seen in various posts?
    Or, do some use the term traditional pro for plus top pro etc.
    Thanks

    No, only Ebony and WineRed IIRC

    I believe that between 2011-2013 the trad-pro came in Ebony and WineRed like paruwi stated. I've got a beautiful Wine Red from 2012.

    In 2014 the Trad-Pro came out with a Limited Edition in a bunch of colors.
    Pitch Black Satin, Tobacco Burst Satin, Honey Burst Satin, Desertburst Satin, Silverburst Satin, and Aqua Blue Satin (AQS). One of these might have a 15 for production.

    No flames that I'm aware of.

    I pilfered this information from the now defunct(?) Epiphone Wiki.

    Thanks, guys!
    Forgot to mention mine's a Heritage Cherry Burst. I like it just fine, but like I said I had seen others state Trad Pro flame top.

    Does anyone know if Epiphone Traditional Pro II's come with a long neck tenon? I know the original Epi Traditional Pro's did.

    I have a 2014 honeyburst Traditional Pro, but it is not a Trad Pro II, as it has no 15 db boost like the II's have. I don't even see honeyburst listed in the link above to the II's. Mine is definitely not a plain top.
