    I remember seeing him on YouTube in some sort of informal interview. He played quite well, but he wasn't playing his commercial stuff. I suppose this an attempt to reach the younger crowd who may consider the singer/songwriters to be their generation's guitar gods. No complaints, but I feel like a pickup and a switch are missing.

    He had that same moment with his '66 as I did with The Lady.

    Can't fault him in the slightest for wanting to protect / duplicate an axe like that.

    Wanted a decent recreation of this since I first saw James Bay a few years ago. The standard '66 Century models leave a little to be desired for me, and I reckon this will at least be slightly better (love a gloss finish).

    No :frown::dunno:
    According to Andertons website the next delivery is due end of September now. Seem like Epiphone are not too much in a hurry to ship these guitars.
    Not sure if I can provide you with sound samples though, as I recently broke my shoulder, so I'm unable to play for a little while (plus I'll have the practice like mad once I can play again, cos my fingers on both hands got really stiff).

    Dude, that sucks about the shoulder.
    I know Sweetwater have 2 at the moment, but thats odd about it not having shipped yet.

    Indeed! But look at the bright side: Had I received the guitar by now, I couldn't play it anyway! Now that would be even worse than waiting for it to arrive :)
    They might have shipped to American dealers first.
    And for some strange reason this guitar won't be available in Germany at all, which is why I ordered from the UK.

    Thanks :)
    Latest info was, the next delivery @Andertons is due on Sept 29th. It then needs to be shipped to Germany, so it might well be another week, until I'll hold it in my hands...
    I'll keep you posted.
