    Looks like it’s her new signature model

    Emily wolf model:from her Instagram feed

    Apparently she’s been a long time Sheraton player.

    Gotta say, I'm impressed with the new lineup, especially the modern stuff.

    I'm so impressed with the Junior and the Special, DAMN those look nice. I'd take either one!

    This one gave me gas .. a lot! Want an SG and since I already have 3 high-end Epis that I'm very happy with (1960 tribute plus LP, LM Explorer and an f-hole masterbuilt deluxe) The new SG standard 61 Maestro Vibrola looks like IT.. (I am no fan of vigglybars but this just looks too good) For the price, if it is anywhere near as good as my other epis I really want one (but then you have the Gibby at 2,5 times the price) .. What do you think? Do I lose a lot (or gain) from the Vibrola? (or should I save for the big-brother)

    I was very interested in the USA Casino bit I think the new SG Special will serve me well.

    Looking at this inspirational Epiphone line-up, it should be (clearly) inevitable now that 2021 will have acoustics with the lower bout upper forearm rounded; competing with most companies that have, or are currrently offering this feature in some of their lower end models. Over due IMO.
    (Like to see Gibson's higher end acoustics having Greenfield appointments. Most likely will test the waters with the Epiphone brand prior to offering on Gibson's.)

    Nope. The ES-175, ES-295, regular Wildkat, Joe Pass Emperor II and Broadway are gone from Epiphone's website. Even the regular Casino is MIA --- only the Casino Coupe remains. Guess anyone who wants a full-size Casino will have to pungle up the $2,700 for the Made In USA version.

    I guess (and hope) they just had focused on the new models for the NAMM
    and the other models will follow soon

    Not only that, but the only Explorer is the Lzzy Hale signature model. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Halestorm fan, but not everyone can pull off a white and gold axe. The dark one.... that I could work with.

    This is the internet. Overreaction and outrage are expected.

    This is a great lineup from Epiphone! Eyeing that worn cherry classic SG or the LP Special.

    I usually only like traditional aesthetics, but this "modern" SG is really looking tasty! Coil-split ProBuckers, Grover locking tuners, CTS electronics, ebony (!!) fingerboard, trap inlays, cool fade finish - that thing looks awesome!

    I think you're overstating it a bit. ;)

    I should have realized that the copy monkeys would be concentrating on the "new" models and highlighting the headstock change. Why do something if you can't do it half-a****? :cheers:

    haven’t been able to confirm if the customs or other models will receive this treatment but the Les Paul Standard 50’s & 60’s are definitely coming with hand rolled necks.

    found some more info on the 1959 Les Paul Standard Outfit, apparently they worked with the Gibson Custom Shop to get it very accurate & the partnership will be indicated on the pickguard or something like that. should come with a tan & pink custom shop like hs case, vintage sunburst or heritage cherry, a rounded by hand 59 neck profile, non-bevelled plastics & custom shop style colouring of plastics (including the jack plate), Burstbucker-2 & 3 pickups, bushing tuner keys also custom shop like in colour, “vintage aged” gloss finish on the front & back & a cool looking limited edition switch cavity cover like the custom shop does. no word on the release date.
