I'm not talking about the recent TV yellow models that everyone loves.

This one is from Unsung 2006. Looks the same as the new ones to me, but has the 60s slim taper neck (unbound). This one interests me as I have doubts about being able to play on that big fat neck.

Anyone have/had one like this?

Thanks!

These are great guitars. Set neck, Korean made. The one I played from that era actually had a decent sized neck. This doesn’t have the bound neck or the wraparound bridge, if you care about those features. I would pick the current one, but if you can get a great deal on this and you find out you do prefer the neck shape, go for it!

Thanks for responding. This one has Gibson P90s as well and "was" available for a little over $300, but its gone now.

I’ve had a few of these with on my bench or through my hands, I’ve liked them all. There’s one on reverb dang near exactly like it.

Don't ask why, as "why not?". The p90's are hard to come by. Like all Epi's and used guitars, it might need some setup. But it can be made to play well. The P90's on these get good reviews.

Agree that this model is pretty nice, but I've decided that what I really want is a single P90 with the wraptail bridge. I'm really getting sick and tired of waiting and watching for something like this to appear in the used market.

As of right now... I'm seriously thinking of ordering a NEW one. The more I investigate this one, the more it seems like the one I should get. Epi 2021 Inspired by Gibson LP Jr
