Man' date=' I got very gassy when I saw that model. [/quote']

 

Yeah, we ALL did, last fall..when they were first introduced. AND,

we did our absolute best, to buy out the entire run....seemingly. LOL!

 

I'm sure you'd not regret the purchase, if you ever decide to buy one.

Don't know why, maybe because of the Bigsby and the gold, but I keep thinking of this model as my Epiphone Chet Atkins model. Kind of a mixture of a Tennessean and a Country Gentleman.

According to MF & 123 they are the same price as they were before.

Just got the $424 price for a P93 from MF too. You have to ask about the "HERO" deal. It breaks down like this:

 

10% off - $100 to $199.99

12% off - $200 to $449.99

15% off - $450 to $999.99

20% off - $1,000 and above

 

I got the P93 and the $89 Epi 335 HSC for $499.80 inlcuding shipping. That was good enough for me to break out the VISA. Thanks for the heads up Crabby!

If someone bought a P-93' date=' and didn't care for the Bigsby, would it be possible to take the arm off????[/quote']

 

You could...you'd have to fill in the screw hole, in the top where the anchor for the Bigsby is, and then you

could put a Trapeze or Compensator tailpiece on, in place of the Bigsby. But, yeah...it could be done.

You could actually drill two holes and install a "stop bar," tailpiece, for that matter. Anything's possible.

 

For those of us, who don't use a vibrato tailpiece much, it would be nice, if they'd make a version, with

the Stopbar tailpiece, too...or even a TP-6. That would look pretty cool, I'd think.

P-93 will give you more variety of tones, less feedback (semi-hollow as opposed to full hollow with the Casino),

and...more upper fret access. But, if you don't really play the upper frets that much, it's no big deal.

And, the Casino's tendency to feed back at higher volumes, CAN be controlled fairly easily. Plus, it IS an awesome

sounding and playing guitar. But then, so is the P-93. ;>b

 

Decisions, decisions! Good luck!
