yes, and historically accurate, which is the only reason I tolerate it. I'm NOT a fan of pink. Would have preferred even the old wine colored interior to pale pink. Makes me think Pepto Bismol every time I open the lid.
Congrats on your new Epi JB! As of about 1 and a half hours ago I just bought a new JB myself! I went to Dietze Music in Omaha to ask about some other business today, and I also wanted to see if they had any Gibby Custom Classics in stock. Well they didn't have any Gibby CCs in stock but I gave the Epi JB a spin for grins and giggles and needless to say I came away very, very, impressed. For the money, and with the store tossing 20 % off today, it's a no brainer. I'm afraid I won't be needing the Gibson CC for a work horse Les Paul now. Sorry to hijack the thread, but these are amazing guitars when you find a good one, which I fortunately just did.
Great looking guitar, I was in Sam Ash the other day and started looking at one didn't play it but it looked very well put together and I'm sure it sounds great. If I ever scrape enough money together I might get one, gotta love gold tops.
Spent most of today with my new Goldie (named after the character in 'Sin City' since this isn't the JB LP I started out with but her sister)
Playing through the Fender G-Dec 3 Thirty, which I'm still in the learning curve with it 5 months after buying it, which is understandable since it does so much.
I'm a newb to electric guitars, I have an old Epi FT-145 (Japanese) I bought back in the '70s, but never learned to play chords with it, just picking a string at a time. Anyway, I have to say I wish I'd bought an Epi made Les Paul back then cause its true what they say, electrics are easier to play. As long as I'm wishing... I wish I had bought a Gibson Les Paul instead of that old acoustic Epi.
