If you up the fret wire quality, can I get my Plustop re-fretted for free since it's only got a year-plus on it, and... well, because I'm just an all-round wonderful person, really?

I don't like any kind of whammy bar including Bigsby's.

Other than that, I agree with some others that the neck and headstock should be bound.

What I most want to know is the switching options. It is in that area that I might consider such a guitar.

One more request. I believe that the Epiphone P93 Riviera may be one of Epiphones best model guitars, ever. I obtained the "wine red" model when that particular model was first introduced. Since then, I have also obtained the Royal red, black, gold and white one. I also intend to obtain the "Royal blue" one, soon. Also...Why so many ? Simple, I like them... Epiphone, please make another version of this, my favorite of all Epiphone guitars., in walnut, or some other "highly figured" type of wood. Also, if possible/practical, please manufacture that one with the same electronics (not pickup) with," dual output", or whatever it's called, as your "ultra" Les Pauls Posted Image with a good (Shaller) (sp ?) roller bridge and graphite infused nut. Yes, I would also obtain a guitar as such, tomorrow, maybe even sooner Posted Image Thanks for looking at my requests Posted Image

best guitars, ever Posted Image also, if possible, make a 12 string version, with a Bigsby and graphite saddles, or a 12 string roller bridge , or a 9 string, with the high E,B,G being the "tandem" strings...with a 9 string Bigsby, if such a thing exists, or if that configuration is even possible. In my humble opinion, that would be the best guitar, ever Posted Image Also. would a P90 be appropriate for a 12 or 9 string guitar ? To me, these particular guitars, with the P90 pickups sound more "mellow" (to me), and less harsh than say, humbuckers or "single coils", or whatever they are called, at "normal" volume..with no excessive gain or od, or without pedals to make things sound "different", Not that I would not use sound effect things with a guitar such as i describe, I would, most likely use all the sound effects things I can find. Posted Image and overdrive the thing to appropriate levels. Also, might P90's reduce the "brightness" or "jangle" that a tandem string guitar might have.? Pareallelogram "split" neck inlays, the Epiphone "Trade mark" big "E" molded into the Bigsby face and custom inlayed script on the head stock (see later post for description of headstock inlay) Ok ? enough "thinking" Posted Image..now..get on it Posted ImagePosted Image please and thanksPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Like others I do not like gold hardware or any vibratos. I had a '66 ES 345 way back when, never really loved the varitone. I would rather see a wilshire jr. or Special with 3 on a side tuners. Epi made some interesting guitars, more reissues of those to fill in the blanks next to the gibson copies. No skinny nuts, at least 1 11/16. Thanks.
