    2nd Epiphone in 3 days :).
    My awesome wife got this for me as a fathers day present :D. It is an 07 so it has been use and has a few dings and scratches but it is otherwise in great shape. I had a set of sublime @Bodean X pickups that he special made for me and I have been waiting for the right guitar for them, and they sound amazing in this guitar :thumb:. This will get a Bigsby B7 I have and a new bridge and nut, but I am digin it and it plays and sounds fantastic.

    VEERY NICE! BIG CONGRATS!

    I don't know what Epi calls that headstock style, but I like it much better than the "regular" or "other" headstock shape!

    BEST WISHES with that beauty!

    Ya, don't know the name for it, but it's used on the premium models like the Sheraton II and the Joe Pass Emperor.
    It's the binding that really sets it off... the Les Paul Standards have the same shape but without the binding.

    I agree the binding does make a huge difference.

    Are you gonna use the "drill-less" mount for the Bigsby? I keep toying with the idea of doing that with my 2000 LP Studio. Something about a Bigsby I like better than the typical Strat Trem...

    Yes I have the vibra mate mount kit. I had it on another lp that I sold a while back that I could never quite bond with.
