  • While we wait even longer for new models to be released...

    Any thoughts on these forthcoming Epiphones?

    I hadn't seen those...great prices, though! I would think new models would be slow to come out because of all the factories are shut down.

      That LP Special is awfully tempting.

        Yeah, (un)fortunately it will not be available for several weeks, if not months. But now I'm wanting a cheaper P90 platform..

        And actually playing with the idea of getting the $129 LP Special with the bolt-on neck - but still P90s. Could be a fun slide project

        These are also tempting thought not a fan of the color options

        And this is nice as well, though on an SG I prefer the smaller pickguard

              I have the new TV Yellow LP Special ordered, waiting for it to be back in stock. Will see how it fares against my 2011 Gibson LP Traditional.

              Also ordered a SD Vintage P90 set to go with it.

                  Sweetwater is expecting a lead time of “a few months”. Hopefully my slide guitar from Musician’s Friend will get here a little sooner.

                      Ordered mine from Thomann, it's supposed to get here in about three weeks. Order date was march 31st. Not only this is a very sought after model, but also COVID-19 got in the way too.

                      Actually it was Jared James Nichols who really got me into the P90 vibe. My tech has been praising them for over 10 years, but now I finally bit tne bullet.

                          I called Musician's Friend, and they're expecting the $129 P90 Special around 4/28.

                            This one is very nice, with only master volume, master tone, no pickguard and it's kind of different to have the switch there. Would have been nice with a belly cut. I like that Epiphone is not trying to duplicate Gibson models 100%.

                              I think in 2013-14 epi did a limited run of these in the same price point. We stocked them at my old job. I couldn’t resist and bought a black one sight unseen. The frets were awful but the tone was great. That in mind it was still a great buy.
