Looks real, but for that price would be a hell of a deal! I have never had any dealing with that company tho. As the old saying goes...if it sounds to good to be true, more than likely it is. If it is real tho and they have only one..you may have messed up cause a few on here sure are wanting one of them still.

Ok. Go to Ebay, hassle the guy selling the p93... make him an offer, he is never going to sell it for 999.00..

 

Or make an offer on the sunburst riviera...

 

I know by a fact that the guy is going to take 500.00 as a reasonable offer.

 

Then get a Bigsby...

 

Thats what Ill do if I could buy another Riviera...

 

 

 

Good luck.

man i offered that d bag 675 all ready and he said "thanks for the offer" i got some news for him, i just recently got off the phone with chris, marketing , over at the epiphone headquaters and he says that they are expecting more P93's in around the end of March, he says it is a limited edition guitar, but it has not finished its sales run yet, I just got mine back ordered from music friend, so for all the na sayers out there and for those who realy wanted one, just wait they will be back in a month or two!!!!!

How's that Little Giant?

 

 

 

pretty much one of the greatest investments I have ever made, I have had it since about agust, I have broken this little guy in real nice, I bought the mini stack , the cab that it comes with is pretty nice and has excelent tone, I have tryed it on a few other cab configs, my AC30 2x12 that was real sweet and, i got a little 2x10 cab with some peavy speakers in it, all pretty different tones for this head, the main thing is I am a college student and haveing lived in various apartments and houses, I have gotten my fair share of noise ordence tickes, here in Baton Rouge, way to exspinsive, this guy come with a sweet 5 to 3 watt switch and i just put the speaker in the 4 ohm jack, and I can crank it up and it will get nasty with out pissin every one off, i would deff recomend getn any of there stuff, I want the 15 wattr, realy want there 100 wattr ,but if you search the net, epis got a new head 18 valve senior, and vox has got the night train 20 watt head both are very interesting to me... oh and of corse im playin my 2004 dot, and my swamp ash tele throu the black heart good stuff man

And their response:

Not if they want your bank account number. That sounds like phishing.
