• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

$1500.

With a proper open book.

One piece neck, Greeny profile. Two piece back instead of multiple pieces. GreenyBuckers, Grovers and good hardware, Lifton-style IBG/Custom case ... as expected, still Laurel and veneer at this price point.

More open books to be employed on other Epiphone IBG/Custom Shop offerings per @matkoehler

I saw a review on Youtube and it appeared that the middle position was in phase ?

(EDIT double checked, it was a custom build , apologies.)

Epiphones are wonderfully made now, but $1500 for a veneer top? I paid $1500 for my Gibson a few years ago, with a real cap.

I believe Gibson's philosophy is the opposite of Fender's. Fender prices their Squires to sell in bulk. Gibson's philosophy is that if you charge more for their products, the brand will maintain respect. I read an article, and I can't remember where I saw it, in which the CEO said this basically outright. PRS seems to have some influence on Gibson's pricing. From the days of Epiphone in Korea til now, they've given players a lot of guitar for the money. Seems like suicide to sell Epis at over $1,000 in the current market. Then again, I'm an artsy farts-ist, and I know little about business.

So I can buy an Epiphone or a USA made Gibson SG Special? Crazy.
