The best epi head stock, in my opinion. Wish it had mini humbuckers though.

Very Nice, very Del Rey-ish, nice to have a DC that all 24 frets are playable...

maybe these will bring the resale value of the Tak DC down so I can get one to put P90's in..

Any clue when these will be available in stores? I'm VERY strongly considering canceling my order for an Epi LP Custom Pro in favor of the DC.

They are such great guitars aren't they [thumbup] LOVE the neck profile.. Its probably my most fun guitar to play and is often the one that other players pick up first when they come in for a visit..

And yes.. P90s frikken RULE !!


P90s Wooooooooo

I like all the colours but the Cherry Burst. Doesn't look right to me on a more modern looking shape.

Dang! Just when I thought I was over my GAS.

The Mojave Burst and Wild Ivy are tempting as hell!

I'm kind of with you on that. I think the Cherry Burst would look better/more "complete" with a pick guard for whatever reason.

L.A. Music in Canada is also calling it the Epiphone 2018 Genesis-II DC Pro for $799 CAD. LA Music DC Pro Link

I don't know if the White Tiger is a reall color the Epiphone site does not list it but also shows Wild Ivy instead.
Looks like they should be popping up at your favorite retailer soon..[scared]
