    EL00

    I just got an EL-00 Pro myself which is just an EL-00 with the Fishman System installed and i just love it! Plugged or unplugged its got incredible Ballz for its size,,it really projects and is just so comfortable to play. Got the hard case for it a week or so ago so now its all set. Enjoy yours ,,i sure am enjoying mine,,maniak
  2. Played a gig this past Saturday nite with the this little badass with my partner playing his new Dove Pro as well. Had a great time and i think we both played rather well to (always a plus) Both guitars sounded great and after a 1 1/2 hour show ,,my hand wasnt even tired,,,Think I'll keep her
  3. I know i need a pic, and i got one too but photobucket is not behaving for me right now and i need to talk about this NOW!!!Due to unfortunate chain of events which maybe we will talk about another time ,i found myself needing a new acoustic axe for an upcoming gig.So ,,off to my local guitar shop i went. I am lucky enough to have an incredible shop quite close to me that i have been doing biz with for over 30 plus years.Well as usual,they did not disappoint,Somehow ,,out of a room full of acoustic and acoustic /electrics and i do mean FULL,,we're talkin Martins,,Taylors,Gibsons ,Fenders ,Ibanezes etc,,this little El-00 called to me.I mean it literally just said "play me" so ,,,i did and Holy Smokes,,i was knocked out. The sound from this little terrror is just astounding,,just so tight, clean, and downright punchy.and the neck is sooooo comfortable that i felt like Id been playing it forever,,no getting aquainted period required thank you. Anyway needless to say ,,i am very happy with this little gem , And my psrtner in crime who i will be gigging with wound up buying a Dove pro the same day so,,this weekend we get to gig with 2 brand new Epiphones (by the way ,,,the Dove pro is amazing as well)
  4. Here are the 2 latest additions to my harem,,both 60s tributes. Got the Paul first and then when the SG came out it was a no brainer. P90's are awesome,, so unlike anything else i own. And slim taper satin finish necks???Dont get me started.
  5. Dammit Jim,,I'm a guitar player,,,not a millionaire!!1 But that Paul looks Soooooooo hot with that korina and those split black and whites nad that Creme pick guard i cant STAND IT!!!!Oh well gues ill just have to be content to play THIS Les Paul for now> Going to a club tonite to sit in with a friend'd band.
  6. Hey whats the Big idea ,,,first i saw a new korina G-400,,(Thought they were discontinued in 05) Then yesterday on guitar centers website i see an Epiphone Korina Les Paul. Does this mine my "Unholy Trintity" has to become a fearsome foursome,Im already missing the Moderne. Here they are once again folks ,,The UNHOLY TRINITY!!!!
  7. WOW Jim She is Stunning!!!!Well i guess we know how I feel about Korina,now you've got me gassin,,,cant do it though till i finish payin off my last 2 Gibsons.Bet she plays as good as she looks huh,,I'm still drooling,,the satin finish back is KILLING me too ,,love a satin neck ever since my Prophecy now i have two more satins in those gibby60s tribs. Anyway,,,great grab Jim ,,Play her in good health. (lets see,,,you have that and the V,, Me thinks you need a Korina SG) Rock On!! Maniak

Yeah I know they arent Epi's But shhhhhhhh,,they think they are.Just in case anyone cant tell ,,they are the latest Limited run Gibson 60s Tributes,,,SG and Les Paul.

  9. Here she is ,,my 60s Tribute SG. Got her a week ago but the way she plays it feels like we've been together for years.IMO they really did everythig right on this series ,,cant think of one thing that i was disappointed about or wish that they had done better. I have a 60s Tribute Les Paul as well and its pretty much the same thing. Killer axes!!!And at a price even us poor folk can afford.

  10. Just got this Cherry one last nite,,,arent these guitars just the bomb-diggity.. P90's rule!!!
  11. Yeah I know its not an Epiphone but this is where I hang out and im sure everyone here would love this little sweetie if they got a chance to play her . But thats not gonna happen fellas cuz ,,,,,,SHES MINE!!!. What can i say???,,worn cherry finish,,,slim taper neck and ,,,P90's!!!!! I'm in love again!!This is pretty hot on the heeels of the 60s tribute Les Paul i got 3 months ago,, played it last week and then gave myself a week to think about it,,,then last nite,,pulled the trigger,,HAD TO,,these are the best things Gibson's done in a WHILE!!!
  12. Boy what a problem,,,too many guitars ,,not enough time or $$.I was already looking at a Gibson 60s Tribute SG with p90's to match the tribute Les Paul i got a month or so back.Never owned anything with p90s b4 and I have to say they're awesome!!!.. So on the one hand the Gibson is really sweet (played it for bout 40 minutes last week) and it would match the Paul or ,,,,,,,,,,I could wait for this Epi and make a nice addition to the Epi SG thing i got going onT ( G400 Korina and my Prophecy GX)To further complicate things,my guy is blowing out a Les Paul Prophecy GX at a RIDICULOUS price.Not sure whats gona happen but i got a feeling the GIbson id coming home with me with in a week. The tag fell off of it 3 times while i was playing it last week. My freind hte store owner saw it happen once and said ,,,"see,,she knows shs gonna go home with you. " , Ahhhhhh GAS is a many splendored thing.

  13. Wow She sure is purty, Must be a rip to play , I imagine there are quite a lot of tones that can be coaxed from such a unique Pickup config.I was gassin for one of these when that Gibson 6o's trbute Les Paul jumped in the way (Although theres aboluetly NO regrets on that one.)Anyway congrats ,,shes a beaut,,play her in good health.,Warren.

  14. Yeah I know this ain't an Epi ,,but an Epi is what i had started shopping for and this is where i wound up ,,,besides,,,This is where i hang out,,dont feel at home on the Gibson forums like i do here. Anyway,,i was looking at the 1960 Epiphone Anniversary Pauls when my guy put this little sweetie in my hands . Fresh foem Nashville ,,a USA Gibson Les Paul Studio 60s Tribute in ,,,,wait for it.......Cherry Suburst.. "worn' satin finish,,,slim taper neck and ...wait fot it .......P90's. That was 3 weeks ago,,,yes i research,,agonize nad GAS over all decisions like this,,so fast foward to last nite ,,,plugged her in and let it rip > that was it ,,30 miutes later they were wrapping her up and i was handing over my card with that all too familar glazed look in my eyes. Ever since my Prophecy ,,i'm a fool for a satin finish slim taper neck and those p90s have a very distinctive bark and growl unlike anything else in my stable so,,,,here we are. And of course ,,here you go cuz i know if there's no pic ,,,It didnt happen. Now If you'll excuse me ,,,Ive got some spanking to attend to.Later guys..
