Dr. Epiphone's new TOM bridge...

I don't know how many of you visit that part of the site, but apparently Epiphone is going to release a modified TOM that is supposed to be an improvement over the current model.

 

So has anyone heard when they're going to release this?

 

(And on that point: How come there's no audio samples?)

Yeah, saw that beck before anybody heard of epiActive pups.

 

Seems like an OK idea, but I string in pairs anyway so I do't see how it'd help me unless it REALLY does transfer vibrations better...

 

EDIT:

I think it'll be a fine piece for an epiphone les paul ultra III or G-400 ultra, along with an ebony board, and the aforementioned epiactive pups, and the other "ultra" adornments.

That's not really new... I've read it a few times over the past... year or so. Right around the time I bought my Casino' date=' I imagine. I thought I had heard about people receiving them on their guitars.[/quote']

 

Hmmm....All I can say is that my custom model was made the end of '07 and it has a standard TOM on it.....(according to the serial number. I didn't buy it until around April of '08).

If you're talking about the 'locking' bridge and tailpieces' date=' they've been standard for a while; the CS Les Paul Special LE I bought just before last Christmas has them.[/quote']

 

Huh...

 

Maybe it's because it's a southpaw, but no, I didn't have them on my guitar. (and on the TOM's, it doesn't really matter much....just reverse the saddles.)

 

I guess I'm going to have to pony up and get 'em aftermarket. Oh well...
