I remember when the Billie Joe Armstrong ES179 came out it was selling for around $2400-$2600

MF,Guitar Center have it selling for around $2300.

ZZound have them for $1599 with discount $1440.

Just wonder if its a deal?Since they have the Memphis P90s?

Looks like a Kool guitar

(looks like a Gibson Studio ES guitar}

Sorry my mistake ES137(too much wine lol}

So there is Black Binding on the sides not like white on the les paul standards?(hard to tell from all the pictures

on ebay that there is any black binding}

Guess it has to be a upgraded model?Since its built in Memphis and the serial number starts with ME

and the Pickups are Memphis P90s?Might be a great guitar too pickup at that price...Thanks alllll.JT

I am toying with getting one. That is a nice ES for the money. The only thing that puts me off is the lack of a normal tone control.

I don't know but for the price and extra discount(might get 5%,10% or more if yea ask}

Most everyone else is still selling these for over $2500 New.

I have been waiting to pull the trigger but feel I might not use the guitar much,

I bought a Les Paul Peace a year ago from ZZound for $1234 and its still in the case as with many other

Gibsons and Fenders not being used.

Just hate letting this one go by(I think I said the same thing with my les paul Peace and other guitars lol}

I just pulled the Trigger on this guitar

ZZounds gave me a extra 10% off for a Final price of $1440.

They also waved the 12 processing fee of $18.

Was really not sure if I need another guitar that might never get used.

But I felt I would kick myself when they sell out and I would have missed on it.

But at $1440 for a Artist ES guitar I think many will do well in buying one before they are all gone...JT

I agree all 3 are the same company(ZZsounds,American Music,Same Day Music}

Only reason I went with ZZounds was because when I bought my Les Paul Peace last year

the salesman took another 5% off just to be nice.

Last night when I brought up Coupons he took another $100 off but

I told him give me 10% off and I will buy the guitar now,,,so he did.

I used to be a big fan of MF and Music123 and got so Many Deals on New guitars with them matching prices and coupons added.

But looking at their sites now it seems that they really have No stock

and No specials like Samash has and ZZounds.

 

As for the Billie Joe Armstrong ES137

ZZounds was out of stock on them for at least 2 weeks

But they got a few more New ones from Gibson 2 days ago.

I think this might be the last of them so whoever gets one I think

you will be very happy...Good Luck too all........JT

Just got my BJA ES137,it seems like a nice guitar but unable to play it as of yet.

Seems like it comes with a extra guitar pick guard with BJA signed(not sure if he really signed it}

But still wondering whats the Difference between the Memphis P90s and the P90s on the cheaper gibsons?....JT

 

Be sure to post how it is after you give it a spin. I am holding off on getting one until I can get a good idea of how it actually is. I see that they have 7 left in stock so it doesn't appear to be a fast mover.

I agree they are not moving fast at American Music and ZZounds.

But then again people don't have $1440 to spend,but they have money to spend at Samash

for their cruddy 2015 guitars.

Myself 10%extra $160 off on this guitar made me buy it and the salesperson was happy

to give me the discount and gave my 12 months too pay it off with Zero processing free.

Will update in a few days.........JT
