    New Epiphone Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess

    Just saw this, looks pretty sweet. I think its cool to be able to get a LP type/scale guitar with a good trem with Ghost piezo bridge saddles for $899. The Snob may not consider getting the Epi version, but many people will dig this I think.

      I'm just taking a moment from admiring the fact that they "TM"'d multiple things on the text of their own site to try and figure out what "the worlds most efficient vibrato" means.

      Like, is that the bridge equivalent of a Toyota Prius? I didn't even know there were inefficient vibratos, although I suppose the hole in the ozone layer is proof.

        ^^^^ Sure there are inefficient vibratos, they are made by Flord Rose and have shit QC. This is Gotoh I think so its much nicer.

          I stay away from those cheap Norwegian Flord Roses.

            That's a killer feature set, assuming the QA is reasonably decent.

              They seem to have upped their game from what I've seen on the new Epis. Makes sense, since it's your feeder line to the USAs.

                They aren't inefficient, they're just pining for the fjords.

                  I just read that Gibson's order book and sales backlog is at a historic high point. Could this crazy company use this opportunity to turn itself around?

                  And that is a sweet axe.

                      I figure a LP scale guitar with a locking trem and a better heel for under a grand would have some appeal to more than just Rush fans. I dont think Charvel is gonna reissue the 750XL with a fatter neck any time soon and this is close enough to kinda scratch that itch.

                        Man, an LP with a Floyd looks soooo wrong. Rush fan or not. There's what, 2 well-known players in the entire music history that played that kind of atrocity?

                        Just like a superstrat with a TOM. In my humble opinion, of course.

                          Bro I'm so old I remember when doing something others where not doing was a very good thing.... although another LP is not breaking ANY new ground.

                            Come on, you can't be that old. We're all old farts for the most part anyway.

                                Why can't epiphone just use the gibson headstock shape....

                                I'm sure this is a solid guitar, as are loads of epiphones but that headstock is just cheap as fuck looking.

                                Making epiphones look better isn't eating into your gibson sales. People laying out 2k minimum for a gibson are not going to suddenly reconsider their purchase but it would add a lot more class to the epiphone headstock

                                  Thats my main gripe too, I can't see any real reason not to do that. I guess they updated them in general this year slightly, but it doesnt make sense when so many other brands share things like that throughout the lines.

                                    All the fretboards in the pics/vids I've seen of this thing look dryer than Betty White's vagina. Would it kill Epi's QC team to put a drop or two of conditioner on the things before they send them out?

                                        People should get together and demand Charvel to reissue the 750XL, but with a slightly thicker neck, they would sell a ton.

                                          They'd sell about 50. Not worth it.

                                                  They've done it before as well, I was kinda hoping they'd change to the Gibson style when they announced the new Epi headstock...
