    Epiphone turned me on like a teenager. These are new Epiphones called "Inspired by Gibson".

    Never owned one. I can't imagine the headstock shape having much to do with my preference though.

    I wish they would do a 335 version. I have an Epiphone 335 which I love with exception of the headstock. I think they are hideous.

    They do look interesting. I’d try one out.

    the name is ridiculous though. What epiphone hasn’t been “inspired by Gibson” the last 30 years ?

    Headstock design wouldn't factor in my buying one, but that Flying V is fantastic looking. ENJOY!!!

    Lest we forget.. Epiphone was a successful and admired company in its own right until after WW2 when things started to go wrong, and was bought out by Gibson, on the advice of Les Paul.. who used to work for Epiphone..

    Read the history.. its really very interesting.. :thumb:

    I've seen them, they look great. That SG is damn near identical to my Gibson SG but probably costs half as much with half as many issues :D

    I didn’t realize the headstock on my Epiphone 335 was such a problem.

    Just think if only you had the slightly different looking p90s it would match a casino perfectly
