HAHA, this is a very familiar topic. I worked on a few similar topics, and it depends what you want. Gibson took over Epiphone 50 years ago (THE BIGGEST CONCURRENT) and I have the impression that the EPIHONE PRICE is really going up. Today you pay easy 500$ for a Epiphone Les Paul. It is finished I believe thinking that Epiphone is "a low cost Gibson." But some things I don't understand, like ZAKK WYLDE, he has 3 SIGNATURE MODELS. 1 Epiphone with 2 USA EMG HZ H4 pickups 800$
and 2 Gibsons (this is so stupid), one is 4500$ the other 7000$.
- Epiphone custom les paul limited edition List Price: $1,082.00 !!! in reality ON LINE 550$ but in a music store it will go up to 600-1000$ , same for the Epiphone LP standard.
I don't know but I bought 2 Gibson LP's on EBAY; one is a SUPREME, half the online store price.
