Well, if you've got a Sam Ash nearby, this is one of the more interesting Black Friday sales I've seen. It's definitely tempting me.

From what I understand, in-store only.

I found the rest of the ad. Even with the 2015 Les Paul logo, the double cut is tempting as fuck.

They've been blowing those out for cheap in the UK for a while now - I was eyeing up the single-pickup version for a while.

Think Jcyphe (as ever) is making a very valid point though...

I saw these yesterday when I went to Sam Ash, but they didn't interest me enough to try any of them.
On a side note, if you ask for discount on anything that is not on the list you will get one anyway but you have to ask. I got $100 of a new PRS Mark Holcomb SE

Mother fucker. I'm hoping these are just like Eastwoods too, because the blue one looks right up my street.

lolz, + obviously the latter at this price point and with these sorts of concessions over the original but I've come to expect that of pretty much all "retro" tribute models or whatever you want to call them.

It's unmistakable when you pick up a true oddball import from the '60s or '70s that is actually playable up and down the neck and stays in decent tune, you find they have features and feel not present on anything relatively recent in electric guitars (or vintage Gibsons/Fenders) and throw off a very different vibe to play. It'd probably actually be a gamble to populate that area of the market with something less playable just because it conforms to something that is mainly popular for it's looks and coolness factor but has become radically old-fashioned in feel and sound, and only cost effective if you had funny CAD shapes plugged into the Epiphonator. It's more of that pawnshop-chic bleeding through, but at least at a more honest price than Eastwood would sling it for.

The '90s Danelectro U2s are the only guitars I can think of that were truly affordable and accurate to the originals at the same time when they were reissued, but I didn't know much about or appreciate that at the time. I remember some kids at school having them and hating them, in the same way some of us viewed our Squiers like "I can do better than this"

It's crazy how all the old guitars you used to see in pawnshops and guitar shops have disappeared. I don't think you can blame eBay and Craigslist because those things were popular 10 years ago and you still found stuff. I don't see much of anything old, weird, or cool these days. For a while I was seeing a lot of Ibanez 80's and 90's stuff but even that has dried up.

It's pretty neat that they are doing composite top models. Italia has been doing that for a while too.



I like this one.
