i was looking for a pic of the re-issues for youse guys (it's only in the catalogue so far), but got distracted at all this other epi loveliness from NAMM. they've gone crazy with re-issuing older cooler gibson models.
Ripper Bass (i'm 100% positive epi already re-issued this years ago, but whatever, it's back)
firebird studio (also available in "worn" cherry)
'57 LP jr.
SQ-180 (Paul Simon style) can't see the double moustache pickguards in this but they're there, see the rosette at the bottom of the soundhole?
they're also doing the casino with a bigsby again, and the ES-135 (cross between ES-175 and ES-335, just looks like the former though).
now all they need to do is make a joe perry boneyard LP without that ridiculous finish. seriously, that is the finest epi LP. it has Peter Green-style out-of-phase in the middle position, and gibson burstbucker PAFs. it's just got a douchey finish.
