so are these going to have a high gloss to them? those pics make them look matt finish like the 59 which would be great!! Mine should ship out tomarrow so i guess i don't have much longer to find out. also tthe pickups say custom pro buckers. Now isn't slash's gibson pickups called custom buckers? is it possible hat epiphone did a custom bucker for these guitars? i will post pictures when i get mine.... t

If you look at the Epiphone website; the section that goes over their pickups cites these as Prockers, same as the 50’s line.

Yes in the specs it says different, but I don’t think they would just wind one up for an Epiphone. But as witnessed by the JJN Gold Glory, they did have Seymour Duncan roll one up.

as far as the neck, I have a feeling it’s the C shape with more shoulder.

I wonder if the neck is a 3 piece like the rest of the IBG line. Also the back of the body looks like a 2 piece body similar to the 59...

Sorry guys, trying to justify the cost. It can’t be the case as the 59 has proven, the 59 is spec’d better electronically but cheaper?

True, the guitars on those photos look like they have a satin finish, but that's definitely only due to lighting. The actual ones are glossy.

Nice looking guitars, but $899 is too much if you ask me. It shouldn’t be more than the ‘59, I don’t care if it has Slash’s scribble on it.

I dig the guitars alright but it's simlly overpriced as far as I can tell when compared to the rest of the lineup. Should have been priced like the norm burst because essentially that's what this is!
