I figured I would start an Owners Thread for this guitar, since MF/GC just released something like 52 of these they had laying around in stock for awhile. I got mine right off the bat from Sweetwater back in October of 2020 after I got an email from Epiphone. The email showed some pictures of it with a Video of Joe playing it and comparing it to his 58 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty which is what this guitar was based off of. I really like the guitar even though it has a Medium C neck which is a little bigger than the Slim Taper necks I usually play. This guitar feels great and sounds great, as well as having a really nice yellow aged binding look to it, I mean what a beautiful guitar. Looks great, feels great and sounds great, definitely a win/win for Epiphone on this guitar. I put some Hipshot Locking tuners on mine, they look good and work great. I am glad this one came with the aged yellow binding on the neck since Joe's Gibson actually had white binding.
