I love the colour scheme, just wish it had a bridge pickup too (and maybee a slightly smaller body..)

I remeber seeing vintage models going for a bit more than $1000 on ebay 7-8 years ago. I dig this new century line, but what surprises me is that it has 25.5" scale. Never knew that Epiphone made guitars with such a long scale and as far as I remember these Centuries belong to Kalamazoo(Gibson) era of Epiphone and were sorta matches of ES-125 models. What I like about the reissues is the fact they have a normal imo C-neck profile

These had never crossed my path before. Think it's a great design; if it had the suggestions Doog gave, I'd probably get one.

Yeah the long scale with P90s sounds like some snappy good fun.


Reminds me, I messed about with a Loar LH-301T at the Cerritos Guitar Center this past January and realized how much fun it was to play something so lightweight and punchy sounding, despite feeling quite cheap as well.

Nice... always coveted Thom Yorke's Gibson equivalent.

Nah, I always think that people who play Esquires and say that they only need one pickup are wrong, but a hollowbody with just a neck pickup is great.

Having said that, that reminds of what I wold probably actually get if I was after something like this

they used to be fairly affordable 10 years ago. i haven't looked recently, but i imagine they cost a bomb now like everything else.
