    Finally after waiting several months and then having FEDEX keep it in Ohio a few days longer that they should have, I received my new Epiphone Johnny A. Signature guitar today. It was ordered from Sweetwater.
    Let me start by saying it's a real beauty. The sunset glow burst gloss finish is amazing. I particularly like the special rounded neck profile on this guitar and the gold hardware really goes well with the finish. The Gibson pickups sound great too. I haven't taken pictures yet but will later tonight. How exciting!

    Not the best but it's late. I'll peel the plastic and stickers off tomorrow,
    Then try to take better pics.

    I thought you guys would be a little more excited about this guitar. Guess it's because it's not a LP, Casino, or Dot. Lol

    HNGD! I'm sure you will enjoy it. I like the "f" holes - not your usual openings.

    Thanks
    I feel that Epiphone ( Gibson) went all out on this one. I'm very pleased with it.

    Nice looking guitar! I received mine last Tuesday. The neck is reall comfortable. It really is a great guitar regardless of cost. Here is a pic of mine. It's not great and a little too much yellow. I'm hoping to take a better one in the sunlight.

    People always talk about Epi's not having any resale value, but I'd say these things will fetch a pretty penny in a few years or so.

    Wow, the black one does look pretty sweet. Perfect "Custom" style layout.

    I missed snow's post
    Good to see I'm not alone here. Great looking guitar, try taking a pic with flash or more light to see that glossy flame come out.
