Hi I am a noob to this and,
I am fixated with the Early 70's Les Paul Signature Hollowbody. Unfortunately I am not blessed with cash and therefore I am equally obsessed with getting an Epiphone Les Paul Signature. However, having surfed the bay and the gbase and everywhere else I cant find a standard to judge what I see against. Has anyone seen or know where I can get a brochure for the epiphone model with specifications?????

I mean look at this one
http://www.gbase.com...+paul+signature
lovely but gold all round. I didnt think they did that everything else Ive seen is gold front wood back and sides.

I live in ireland and so have to surf to find one, which is not how I would like it, but hey ho.

If anyone can give me a pointer or info would be great.

cheers

Welcome II. Nice guitar as, Tman said. You sound, sold! Hope you buy the guitar for the guitar's sake and not the signature. Those signatures are not free, but they are sometimes the only way to get the instrument you want. Been to the Epi site? I'll look around some. Good Luck!


edit 18:09 hrs: On a quick look around, appears you have found the good deal.

I always wanted a orig. LP Florentine..but couldn't afford one when they were in production...the Florentine built recently are solid bodies, the originals were F-hole...like this;
