I got a call from my Sweetwater guy and he sent me two links to choose from for the Joe Bonamassa Lazarus 59 Les Paul Standard. I picked the one I like best and she will be here next week sometime. I have been looking for a reasonably priced aged Les Paul Standard for over a year now, and the coloring/look of this guitar is exactly what I was looking for. I can’t wait till she arrives.

I have a EPI ES 355 Bonamassa. It is incredible. Recently I bought a gibson standard lp 50"s. Then i picked up an epi lp koa. The standard has 10x the balls of the epi koa. My guess is the epi bonamassa lp will turn out to be way more capable than my koa as well. I think Joe's influence on his signature models design is likely to be a really good thing for Epi performance.

Photo of the back shows 2 pieces - is it really two solid pieces or is that veneer?

Mine just arrived 2 minutes before SWMBO got home from work.
I managed to spirit it downstairs before she pulled in. She never has a real problem with my guitar buying but I have made a few recent purchases, so I thought discretion is the better part of valor.

BTW Op, I forgot to mention that your new guitar looks fantastic. I hope it plays as good as it looks.

I can't see the point of making a veneer like that for the back. I say two solid pieces.
there was a recent discussion on the topic and some members stated that Epiphone puts veneer on the back too. I am happy to hear there's real wood on these.

I know they do. What I meant is why would they put a veneer that looks like two pieces when its easier to have a full one.
