    You took that argument to its logical conclusion

    Then you punted it into outer space.

    Hmm. I’d say that ‘some’ are fine build quality. I’ve had a couple of ‘stinkers’ but the Gold Top Les Paul is an awesome guitar and a keeper - well I say keeper; I’ve given it to my niece and I’m not getting it back! :D

    My only Epiphone is a Kalamazoo made 1963 Casino with a small, very Gibson like headstock. I have had it donkey’s years, so its influenced me. It looks right me.

    This one from pic earlier is the one.

    All the elongated and ornate oar blade headstock versions since have seemed very out of proportion and a little off to my eyes, It is a reason I would not consider a modern Epiphone version of a Gibson model. They just looked too neck/top heavy.

    I get why the company need the differentiation though, so it will be hard to escape the ‘second best’ baggage the brand will carry, whether justified or not.

    Be interested to see if they actually do anything.

    I'd be pleased to find a FuzzTone plate like this one below :
