How about a Red Epiphone "Lucille" option?!

Gibson gives you the option, of a Black, or Red "Lucille!"

Epiphone should do the same, don't you think? And, how

about a Red "Sheraton" as well. There were Red one's in

the USA line, prior to 1970's move, to Asia. Let's get

that reinstated, into the regular production, as well!! [thumbup][biggrin]

Never understood the lack of a cherry Sheraton II - seems like it would be a no brainer from a sales point of view. With the Lucilles I guess BB only plays the black ones and they don't sell that many, but there again it's been in the line a long time so it must be reasonably successful. The odd batch of red ones would be interesting.

Are we talking red or cherry? To me they are different, red equals paint whereas cherry would indicate a red stain with clearcoat. In this case; red, no; cherry, yes.

"Cherry" red, yes (As found on ES-335's, ES-345's, and the normal ES-355's), but offered on "Lucille,"

and the Sheraton II.

Yes not that crazy about the green.

They only made 25 of each color, and this was a special order from Musicians Friend.

 

I think Musicians Friend should go this route with Epiphone. Aisian made, USA distributed, limited production series.

Kind of like how Zzounds is the only distributor here for the Ice Tea ES-335.
