    This guitar, it looks amazing, available in a few different colours, my favourite is Wild Ivy but think the Midnight Ebony looks good too

    Neck shape is a “custom C” and the fretboard radius is 12” according to the Epiphone site, with the Probucker pickups and Mahogany body. Looks like they turned the Les Paul into a double cut with this. Also has coil splitting. I’m sure this is a fantastic guitar :D

    It’s just a shame about the price. At £500 a Gibson costs a few hundred more.

    I would be interested in trying this to see what it’s like, with the double cut body. But don’t know if the massive les paul body would be too big on the bottom and if its also heavy.

    I know this isn’t a new Squier coming out but. Looks exciting :D:D:D

    Yeah, the price is too high but it's a handsome little beast.

    It looks beautiful and they have so many great looking colours too :D of course it’s more important how it feels and how it plays but looks the part :)

    I think the Midnight Ebony is gorgeous!

    The top horn looks a bit big to my eye, but i may help balance the guitar.

    Amazing what is available these days. And getting better all the time! :)

    Yeah there are so many amazing guitars out there these days, and amazing amps under £400 too :)

    I want to become a player and not a collector that can’t play well but lack of time and guitars looking so nice is making stuff difficult lol :D:D:D there are so many nice Squiers out there, Epiphones and new stuff coming out like this :D:D

    Looks great but 24 frets is not my cup of tea!

    Speaking of Epis, I recently setup a Worn Brown SG with 9-42 strings since I love bendy blues... and it is like a 24.75 Tele with all the tones I can coax out of it.

    GAS is currently potent for this baby:

    It's a gorgeous guitar. I'm more partial to the shorter horns on the Epi Genesis, which is out of production. Here's the side-by-side.

    I’ve been considering an Epi SG too, they’re so cheap compared to a lot of guitars, that Epi looks cool :) never seen that before, what is it?

    Looks a cool offset design :)

    Apart from the gold pickups and the fretboard in a different colour, almost looks like it evolved haha :D that Genesis does look cool with the little horns, and gold colour instead of silver

    Who knows, they might bring it back at some stage hopefully :)

    Over on the Epi forum they are saying, based on company data, that the price will be $599. ($999 msrp).
    And while I'm not crazy about that upper horn, my biggest decision here might be which color to go for.

    There is an Epi forum? I used to be on the Strat Talk forum before, but it got took over by loads of trolls and don’t go on it anymore. This forum is much nicer and better and with good people on here

    If I was an Epi dude I would go for something lol but am more of a Fendery guy so I will stick with Fenders/Squiers. No idea what my next guitar will be, wait and see :)

    Hi Taurus. There are actually three forums that discuss Epi's. One is a company sponsored site "Epiphone.com", and then there's "MyLessPaul" and then "Gibson Talk".
    Not that I have any problem with this site, I just like to take in all the information I can get my hands on.

    I too am a Squier/Fender guy but need something that's not single coil and with 12 radius for a change... I am sort of a 9.5 radius junky and need something different :)
