We've talked about the White Royale collection. And talked about individual guitars of the TV Pelham.
But I don't recall seeing any discussions on the Black Royale, or the TV Pelham and Silver collections.

The silver and black don't impress me too much.
But I like that TV Pelham collection. I'd love to have a Dot in that color. Or an SG, or the Firebird or....... [biggrin]

TV Silver Wilshire will definitely be mine, as long as the neck binding doesn't change...[thumbup]

A TV Silver explorer would definitely be cool too... B)

Black Royale and Pelham do nothing for me...

First time I saw the black Wildkat I thought it would look better with black pickups, and I think the Riviera proves that for me. Easy fix tho!

Imagine that Firebird with a raised centre section and mini-humbuckers. Bit of a missed opportunity?

But that silver Explorer- there's no way I could ever justify owning one, but it is the most perfect rock axe I've seen in years. There's a few seconds of it in the Epi NAMM youtube vid. The silver finish comes across much better.

Why do the Firebirds always have to be reversed? And I agree with vomer on the raised center section. They do the non-reverse on a FireBird and I'll buy one.

I second that. I've waited years in the hope they'd make one and colour would do nicely! They'd sell bucket loads Of em. U reckon it'll happen?

The Pelham Blue series is what could give me GAS, but I have to see one to be sure.
How transparent is the stain?
I would go for a solid Pelham Blue 355 myself.
I like the chrome (nickel?) hardware instead of the gold.
Hopefully some of the chains will get some for reviewPosted Image(like they always do)

Interesting. I'd like to see more colors too in limited editions, like (dark) British racing green, and some of the colors Gibson's used in their SG's, like firemist red, saphire blue, & emerald green.

I wish they would make that SG (Blue one w/Maestro) in the Cherry finish with a holly headstock inlay instead of the custom headstock inlay. I know that they made one a few years back (Guitar of the month series), but I didn't get one of the 400 or so that they made.

Like this one: :)

Same.


+2.While I think these are cool offerings, I'm in Korina mode for solid-bodies currently. But the TV finishes have appeal.

I would have to say that after I get my hands on a LP tribute plus soon The Black Royale Swingster, the Pelham 339 pro and one of the new Genesis are all in striking distance! It is gonna be a tough year for my Old Lady and I !!!!!! [tongue] :)
