    Agreed, I was mostly passing it along. That is in the ballpark of other Epi Signature LP's today. I think that is probably how they are arriving at the price.

    Still, it is also about what my Elitist LP Custom sold for new. Now that was 16 years ago, but we already know how I like to live in the past.

      I am kind of impressed that I remembered this topic, when they crossed my news feed.

        Looks like AMS already has the Cantrel Prophecy in stock. Figured the Wino would be available first. The price on the Wino isn't as bad as I thought, but still expensive for a Epi. Comes with case, so that's a plus. Would cost the same as buying the Epi Custom with a case separately. I used to have the white inspired by Gibson Custom Les Paul and would say I did enjoy it, but it had some serious factory flaws around the binding I didn't expect to see at that price point. Very good sounding guitar, just about $300 over priced in my opinion. Epiphone probably should had priced the Wino with case at $599, no more. I would get one then.

          I did before. But that was in 2014. Wishful thinking these days I guess...

            The 1960 Tribute Plus with Gibson 57 Classics and case was $599 new. Best Epi Les Paul besides the Elitist ever. Yep, should had kept it. I had the Vintage Sunburst...

              It looks like Epi Worn Classics MAP starts at $450, Studios at $500, Classics at $550, Standards at $650 and Customs at $730. None of those have cases.

              I picked up a Classic and a Standard in the mid to late 90's. Both had cases. I think they were around $400 and $450 respectively. The pickups were not worth keeping, all SD now - so there is that.

              Maybe this is just where prices are these days? But hey, if none of them sell them prices should come down, or they will get bundled with cases, or something.

              I will just be happy that the Epi's I already have, play, and sound nice.

                Funny how the last 2 years every time i see a new sig Epi guitar its like $300+ higher than the last sig Epi i saw.
                What are we like $1500 for Chinese Epiphones now ?
                I can have a real Gibson for the $800 to $1300 range if you know where to look.
                And would way rather have a 70's to 90's Japan Tokai / Greco or Orville.

                  Good-looking guitars, but to echo the chorus, the price points are a bit steep. I don't generally go in for artist models, though. I feel like I'm paying extra just to have X's name on the headstock or whatever.

                  I did enjoy the last Alice in Chains album, though.

                    I only paid 800 for my epi Lzzy Hale model, then I dropped another 3 bills into pickups and blacking it out.

                    It's the best guitar I own, and in my opinion, worth every cent.

                            Those prices aren't really out of line compared to most other established brand imported guitars. I'm old enough to remember Gibson Studios being around $500 new, but an LTD EC256 is $599 now and an EC1000 is $1099. This is where we are now.
