    NGD: Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' + 1959 Lemon Honeyburst

    I definitely agree with the 59 comment. It just seems like 'Lazarus' was a more immediate 'wow' whereas I have had to really tweak and try to get to know the 59. Hope your 'Lazarus' comes out like you want - you'll definitely have to post some pictures! The neck on my model is definitely thicker...

    NGD: Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' + 1959 Lemon Honeyburst

    Th Thank you so much. Definitely loving them both! I have only seen one top that didn't look 4A, so I am a lot more confident with these sight unseen than other Epiphone models!

    Hi all - longtime lurker here. I saw some comments on the larger 'Lazarus' thread about potentially polishing the guitar and what it might look like, as well as some questions about how it feels/sounds compared to the 1959 edition, and felt like this might help some people that are on the fence...

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Lazarus 1959 Les Paul Standard - new JB signature guitar

    I hadn't seen anyone take a stab at polishing Lazarus yet, so figured I would give it a go last night and am super happy with how it looks now - the satin on the back and neck feels great, but the polish just makes Lazarus looks more similar to a true VOS finish. I also have a Lemon...
