2016 new models

Recommended Posts

Winter NAMM is right around the corner and Epiphone has yet to give us a peak at any new models. Personally I'm hoping for another 60s Sheraton reissue. What's everyone else want to see?

I'm hoping for a new riviera or sheraton, can't see us getting a sheraton though due to the new 'pro' ones! Would also love to see a 345 after missing out last time!

In reality there will be some 'new' les paul, available in every colour and burst imaginable!

Good choice, I'm with you on that one [thumbup]

 

I'd also like to see more Elitist models besides the usual Casino. Would love to try the Byrdland and Broadway Elitist models that were made a number of years back as they looked fantastic.

I'd like to see:

 

-A riviera with mini humbuckers

-A 335/345 with soapbar P90's a bit like the 339 they brought out.

-a firebird in the non-reverse model (never gonna happen, I know)

A Flying V would be nice (Korina, even?) [thumbup]

 

It’s been a while since they’ve offered a proper Flying V. The Jeff Waters Annihilation-II Flying-V does not count…bolt on neck!?! Are you kidding me!?! [thumbdn]

Archtop reissues of the Emperor, Luxor, Zephyr, Deluxe, Triumph and Century.( and a shout out for the Howard Roberts)

 

Masterbilt reissues of the Texan, Excellente and Frontier

 

But more than likely we will get low end Gibson Clones.

 

One can only dream.

All Epiphones at original, accurate, Kalamazoo Spec's! Correct headstock shape, for each model, and Gibson truss rods,

and 2-hole TRC's. Also, the Epiphone "Gibson" clones, with Gibson spec's, including Gibson headstock shape, with Epiphone

Logo...like they do in Japan!

 

Probably never happen, but that's what "I" would love to see! I don't really care, where they're made, as long as they're

well made, and "accurate" to the original, pre-1970 Epiphone's made in Kalamazoo, MI. USA!

Yes I would love to see some archtop reissues. Also the master built Excellente and Frontier. But my ultimate want is a 59-61 Sheraton with white carasouel knobs, pre gibson laminated neck with the chunky v shape and either new york or mini humbuckers

Some really good calls there. The frontier and the excellence would be a great move for epiphone. My AJ-45 masterbilt is a thing of beauty, those models in the masterbilt range would be excellent.

I kind of wonder why they have yet to reissue the Emperor Regent, disco'd in 2010, that was really nice/affordable jazz box right there.

I like how you think, my friend. Dream big or go home! [thumbup]

Namm starts tommorow I would assume we will see then I hope they got good stuff but like previously stated we will probably just get more gibson knockoffs instead of some Kalamazoo/pregibson stuff.

Nothing? Everything I've seen is pushing the Gary Clarke casino!

But those new Gretsch streamliners!!!!!!! GAS

 

They look great don't they and they are really affordable, love the green colour. Really like the G2655 smaller version as well, it reminds me a bit of the gretsch double jet
