    ‘Tis an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Flametop Vintage Sunburst. Man is this a pretty guitar, Gold Hardware, mother of pearl square inlays, Rosewood Fretboard. I was gonna get a flametop standard but it looked a little to cheap, so I sprung for this which doesn't have those ugly ass green see through tuners and plastic knobs. Plus it is a real Flametop where as I couldn’t really tell with the standard, but I am pretty damn sure with this one. I don’t have a camera to take a picture of it or I would. I got it instead of saving for a wolf cause it felt right in my hand where as the wolf felt a little off(it felt great don't get me wrong, the LP just felt better). I have enjoyed it greatly since I got it a week ago.

    Got a new one myself...

    ExpandedConsciousness:

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!

    That's the way to pick'em NxtVanHalen.
    If it feels and sounds good, and is decent, or better quality, then that's the one for you.
    Hope you enjoy it. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    It is indeed the new color changing paint. It's called Mystic Dream. I read somewhere that they are getting ready to release a new one called "Autumn Red Rise Mystic Dream" which will obviously be similar, only using red somehow.

    I've had an Epiphone for over 5 years now and I can't speak highly enough of them! I've always kind of wanted one of those flame customs too (mine's just a LP-100). Maybe one day. Good on ya too for not "just getting a Wolf"!!! If soembody doesn't like the Wolf then don't get it - just because somebody likes VH doesn't mean the Wolfgang will be perfect for them. I like your style mate! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Awesome! Congrats man!

    I just got a new one too! Well, it's actually a used one, but it's in IMMACULATE condition. Some guy traded in a black USA Strat Plus w/EMGs, LSR roller nut & Sperzels in on a new PRS Singlecut at my bud's music store and he hooked me up, $550 with case, and it's freakin' CHERRY, the guy did all his own work on it and really knew what he was doing, sucker plays like buttah!

    Gettin' a new axe is truly one of life's greatest pleasures... wish I could afford to do it every month! lol

    Enjoy it man! Happy jammin'!

    Well I was just browsing through some old topics and ran across this one. I just wondered how the guitars are holding up for you guys (Joedog and SBS) now after a month or two of playing. I've kept mine pretty damn clean and new looking except for some real minor scratches on the back were I forgot and wore a shirt with buttons on it, but I've enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Man, I'm really diggin' mine, with the Sperzels and the LSR nut, it stays in tune almost as well as my soloist, and it absolutely plays like a dream! I want to go back and ask my boy Mark for the previous owner's phone #, I want to pay him to set up all my guitars! LOL Seriously though, I've never played a Strat that was this easy. I'm seriously considering shitcanning the EMGs though, they sound pretty good, but I've just never been a big EMG guy, and seeing as I was wanting to get a more direct Stevie sound out of it, I think I'm going to drop a set of Texas Specials in it, I'm thinking that would make it just about perfect! It's real purdy, too... immaculate black finish with the pearloid pickguard just looks cool, although it's a friggin' bitch to keep clean!

    Now all I need to do is find a good luthier around here to restore my old warhorse, my '77 Dean ML... I LOVE that axe, but it's been around, and really needs some major work. I may just wait until I can get back to Jville and drop it off with my boy Allan Chester, a wizard of a luthier, he's slow as all hell, but when you get your shit back, it's always worth the wait!

    Nice to hear you're enjoying your new baby as well. Isn't it cool how much inspiration a new axe can give ya?
