    Still don't get it..I take around $10k in gear to dive bar gigs regularly. Why own it if you don't play it?

    I hope those three Epis aren't your retirement fund haha!

    Seems to only be gear from the US here the new hand wired Princetons are$3,300 when we can get a hand made & wired Lucas Miles or Achillies Princeton for $1,000 less. Our friends in the UK though $2,800 for a 100w H/W 1959 Super Lead. :dude::applause:

    Heh, on a serious note! Here's a small bit of worthy info that you LP aficionado's might find beneficial. The Camo version of the Epi ZW Sig guitar actually has the extended neck tenon. It is set in all the way back to the bridge pup. The other two models do not.

    It might be a worthy piece to some players.

    Eastman Guitars make nice LP style guitars...

    Go to Rakuten online stores and find yourself some nice LP style Edwards (by ESP) and FGN....

    If your still hung up on getting Play Authentic, I'd go for the newer Tribute with chunky necks....

    If you can find the 2016-2017 60's Tributes (P-90 pickup) have the skinny 60's... I believe all 2018 Tribs went with the 60's neck... Since mine was a 50's Tribute so it has that fat neck....

    ive yet to see any used tributes in our local stores. i guess people are snapping them up rather quickly
    or just arent getting rid of them either one.

    Whats the 50's/60's hybrid neck like on the Tokai Gaki LP style guitars. Actually what is a 50's/60's hybrid neck?

    didn't they sell Tributes off a couple of years ago for around $800 new? Too bad I missed that.. I just thought it was a model that no one wanted. As I remember they had the automatic tuners built in.. maybe they were flawed.

    I would have to agree. I played different models for decades. American standard strat for 14 years. several years back(4) I bought my first Gibson. and have sold every guitar I have ever owned. exclusively Gibson man now. my 3 besties are my #1 Firebird, #2 Explorer, #3 Les Paul. not a Gibson snob by any means, it just is my preference based on tone and playability.

    Once you have the real thing the copies don't measure up. Take them out and play them boys!
