@Digiplay I have no interest whatsoever in any guitar that was "road" worn in a factory. Nor am I interested in reissues of Teles that have a 7.25" neck radius, or an odd (to me) wiring scheme that is "vintage." Of the reissues that you named, the only ones that mildly interest me are the Epiphone USA made Casino and Texan, in that order. (Yeah, guess what band I was a fan of back in the day?) But short of a significant and unexpected sizeable cash windfall, I'll never buy either one.
