    On a record I did a few years ago, producer dude had a Japan made Epi FBV. It was sooooo much better than the USA FBV I have. No comparison.

    Me too. I placed a deposit on a bursted one too. Hopefully it will meet my expectations as I have always wanted a Firebird I. Gonna use it as an inspiration to do therapy after surgery on my shoulder. I really am looking forward to this issue.

    This thing looks rad but I cannot bring myself to pay $800 (or a bit less, assuming discounts) for a gig-bagged Chinese-made fiddle, signature model or not. BUT I would probably pay that for the next BCC record. Frothing at the mouth for that one!

    Let the bullets fly...

    The guitar I have is great, NOTHING to complain about! I don't know if the finish is poly or nitro, but, it is fantastic. I didn't notice the finish for about a week, but when I did, I was kind of blown away, perfect! Really nicely finished. I don't think anyone will regret buying this.

    My rep also said this, but added that there are so many pre-orders, they don't know which dealers will be able to fulfill them first.

    I just put in a preorder for a sunburst one with them - hope I am not too late!

    I ordered it thru Joe's webstore. I would like to think that anyone who orders one from his website would be getting that order fulfilled..

    I did the same for a tobacco one. If I'm gonna spend my dough I'd rather it go to Joe.

    That could very well turn out to be the case. AMS just changed the expected in-stock date from November 2nd to December 23rd...

    Stevie can you tell me when you ordered from Sweetwater? They told me today that I could expect something in December, perhaps, as there were people ahead of me.

    Cool -- hopefully AMS will get their shipment sooner than they think! I ordered mine October 6th, so maybe I'll be closer to the front of the pack than the back!

    I ordered a sunburst model Oct 10th from AMS. They initially told me they'd have stock Nov 2nd. I called to verify this and was told the new date was Dec 23rd. Bummer

    Re: Bonamassa Signature Firebird I?

    Just a quick question for those who already played one...do you have original 'birds to compare the Epi to or do you think of it only as a cheap way to get into a Firebird? They sure look nice, but I already have two original 'birds...

    I have Joe's gold one, I also have an original Firebird. It is crazy how this Epi is just as nice and plays and sounds just as good. No joke man.

    Andreas, There is nothing cheap about this guitar! This Bird will be a great addition to your herd!

    My only hope Dan, is that the production guitars are as good as the prototype you have! I can't wait to get mine!

    I'm betting it Poly, but sprayed real thin. I don't think the Chinese factory is setup to shoot Nitro.

    In the video with the sunburst 1 it sure looks like poly too me. Not a big deal for me, it looks very nice in any case.

    Well, whoever was behind me in line for a sunburst at Sweetwater just got bumped up a slot; I decided to cancel my order and grab a Gibson CS Firebird I from Dave's Guitars.

    I am so impatient and impulsive with guitar puchases - long wait times drive me crazy, haha.
