I'm so tempted by the "Chibson" thing.

Angus edition SG with the killer lightning bolt inlays for like $250, LP Standards in all the rad flame/burst configurations, J-200's for days.

Most are made in the Epiphone factory, shipped out the backdoor. So it's Epi price and build (which is fine with me) with the Gibson looks.

My wife has always wanted a tiger stripe Standard, maybe I'll roll the dice!

Epiphone factory is kicking ass recently. So so tempting... especially at $400 instead of $4000

"Made in the USA" stamped? Scandalous

Yep. But like semi-legit as far as feedback/stores, even paypal.

They even have variations/options the OG brands don't offer....custom colors, 12 string versions, inlays....

White Ric bass, but with white pickguard? Check.

Your name inlayed on the J-200 fingerboard like Hank Williams, for like $30 extra? Check.

Dudes post up "unboxing" videos and the results are encouraging overall.

That gold top with P-90s.... I need that. If anyone takes a gamble on one post up the results. Very curious about these.

Not feeling it. Probably because I own a real Gibson. A lot of the web chatter about these makes it seem that some are not even Epiphone quality.
