    Let me preface my post by saying I’m a full on Epiphone guy. Sure I’d take a Gibson over an Epi but I would never pay the ridiculous upcharge. Much rather but Epiphone and Squire and upgrade them.

    This post is suppose to be fun so feel free to go crazy if you’d like. Maybe you don’t quite know what brand you want but you know what style/model? No problem post it up !




    Have:
    1996 Tobacco Burst Epiphone 335 Dot
    2001 Black Epiphone Les Paul Custom
    2005 Alvarez RD20S 6string Acoustic
    2017 Red Epiphone 1966 Reissue SG-400 Pro
    2017 Tobacco Burst Fender Squire Bullet Strat

    Wants:
    Epiphone Gold Top LP (so vintage!)

    Epiphone Pelham Blue LP with the Amber knobs (looks so gorgeous!!!)

    Epiphone Cherry Red 335 (Freddy King is one of my guitar heroes!/so vintage!)

    Natural Finish Telecaster (so vintage!)

    12 string Acoustic (ofc I’d like a Guild (big SRV fan) but I’d pay for an Alvarez or Epiphone)




    Looking forward to everyone’s lists!

    Cool thread idea James...

    My happy ‘haves’ are listed below...

    My current ‘wants’, dictated by my self imposed & not too sane little collection criteria, are interesting MIK Epis from 1995 &/or 1996 that would add variety to my ‘haves’...

    Not exactly sure what they might be yet (& would welcome any suggestions), but I would happily swap out ‘Big Red’ (a ring in skip bin save) for a Natural or Mahogany Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter Florentine Cut Acoustic... & an Epi Mandolin or Resonator is not out of the question either...

    But, for sure, this thread has reminded me how much I miss the amazing resource that was contained in @RTHs EpiWiki :(

    Haves:
    Epi LP Tribute+ - midnight sapphire (blue)/rosewood
    Epi Casino Coupe - inverness green/some kind of dark wood, doubt it's rosewood
    Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Centerblock Jr - Flagstaff sunset (red)/rosewood
    Squier Standard Stratocaster (SQ) - black/maple
    Squier Affinity Strat (left-handed Jimicaster with P90s) - black/maple
    Squier VM Telecaster Deluxe - sunburst/rosewood

    I only have 6 electrics? I should do something about that.:naughty:

    Wants: I'm not sure, so I'll call this Don't haves:
    ES-339 P90 PRO - black (don't have a semi-hollow with P90s)
    Tele - BSB/maple. Iconic color. But the CV necks are too thick, so maybe a Squier Affinity.
    Epi SG - Black or red. Don't have this shape, but I already have a solid body HH.

    Don't wants. These are either uncomfortable to my body or eyes: Full width or depth (semi)hollows, brown/black bursts, most pastels, pointy guitars, most of the 500 :jb:signature models :).

    Haves include my P90-pimped Sheraton which is *perfect*, and my ideal strat build is well underway, I'll be assembling that in a few weeks. So... no GAS... is that even possible?

    Wants: since a buddy got me a 30% off list price new Boss Katana 50 recently, I've been plugging it into the computer through its USB out and getting into recording again. Which is amazing for me, I used to engineer in a little 8 track studio in the 80's and haven't recorded since. So my want now is an interface so I can record vocals, and mic'd amps, as well.
