    So after seeing the tvyellow special 1 p90 on sale and back ordered, and after looking at threads on here and squier talk, i emailed epiphone asking if the bolt on models were being discontinue Screenshot_20200811-074208_Gmail.jpg
    So if you aint got one, find one haha
    And if you have one, hold onto it for awhile and we might see an increase in value.
    Ive flipped a couple lp specials and sg specials, very solid guitars. "As long as the necks straight" kind of guitars.

    Not sure about gaining value they’ve made them for a long time now

    Although most are probably butchered and in pretty bad shape

    As they are a guitar you get for a beginner that doesn’t play so well without a set up and ends up being neglected

    Or turned into a teenage punk machine

    ...discontinued for now...just for example, look at how many re-issue versions of the blackguard exist...In the CNC world of factory production, it would take maybe a matter of days, to crank up the assembly line again.

    I do see people on Craigslist who offer the $99 special jr as "rare", asking $200 for it. Whatever.

    It'll be back the next time GC needs a holiday doorbuster guitar. "Electric Guitars only $99!"
