There was some interest here in the new Epiphone Wilshire, and since I just got one I'll give you my impressions. First, this guitar has exceeded my expectations. I was preparing myself for a big letdown, and fortunately this didn't happen. To clarify, this is the 2020 reissue of the double P90 pickup Wilshire and is made in China. Epiphone has also released the Coronet (single P90) and Crestwood (2 mini humbuckers and a trem). The fit and finish is impeccable, save for some roughness on the edges of the pick guard. (More on this later.) I'm OCD level picky and haven't found any finish flaws on it. There is a slight bit of fret sprout, but nothing that's bothersome. It weighs just 6 lbs 5 oz per my Rappala fish scale. The Indian Laurel fretboard feels fine, and looks ok, but I like a dark fretboard and am planning to either dye it or stain it to get it as close to black as possible. Out of the box, it had too much relief in the neck and the action was way too low for me. Adjusted the truss rod and raised the action...all good. Also had to intonate 4 of the strings. Frets could use a light polish, but aren't bad at all as they are. After a couple hours of playing it, the strings stay in tune really well. My biggest nit is that the pickups are slightly slanted towards the bridge. I've seen this on a lot of budget guitars and I'm sure there's a fix. If you know what it is, let me know. Also, the location of the strap peg on the body near the neck joint makes it feel as though the strap could slip off the peg. The guitar balances well enough when standing, but the neck feels farther away than with a Tele due to the neck joining the body at the highest fret. Unplugged, it has to be one of the loudest electric guitars I've played. Plugged in it's P90 heaven! With a little overdrive it's glorious, with a nice variation between the neck, neck + bridge, and bridge positions. Tone and volume controls work great, no cutting out at "4" on the knob. It has CTS pots, so this is likely why. The .10 strings it came with seem decent, but feel too light for the way I play. I'll be changing them to 10.5 or .11s as soon as they start to fade. If you've got a jones for an affordable, double P90 guitar, like a vintage look, and can deal with the Chinese origin, put this one on your list. $449 + tax. Here you can see how crude the cut is on the edge of the pick guard: Here it is after a few minutes of sanding with some emory paper. Slight improvement. Will have to revisit this, though, to get it smoother.
