Went on the Epi site to see if there were any new releases and found these new white guitars, don't see them mentioned on the forum yet so was wondering what people think?

It's a bold design and I kinda like it. Not a fan of the EMGs included but I get why they included them. Nice to see some different looks other than the classic bursts. The fingerboards looks pretty cool imo, but I'd love to see how it plays.

Very interesting visuals. But, it's not for me.

I like the look of the Explorer. By the way, does anyone know about how long it takes for Epiphone to bring new guitars to market after they are announced? They announced a couple of new Lee Malia Custom Artisan models (Explorer and RD) months ago and they're still not available.

Sometimes they are already sold out even before announced, other times they get cancelled so hard to say. At Andertons that Explorer says due Nov 30th, however whats happened with the cancelled ones is that date just gets pushed back and back until the retailer just gives up.
