Anyone know how much it cost? and would it be a lot better than a normal Epiphone les paul standard?

And better pickups, well better everything I guess. Maybe not wood but I doubt anyone could tell the difference.

Looks cool I guess. Wouldn't mind trying them. But I'll stick with a V100 Peter Green LP if I want a nice vintage playing Les Paul. Yeah.

It's a big step-up from a normal Standard, how much it will cost and whether it's worth whatever price tag they give it is a mystery though.

It should probably be pointed out that from the wording, it sounds like it's been givent he current 'Gibson 50's' neck profile, which actually is more like a real 1960's Gibson neck and significantly slimmer than a real '58 or '59 neck.
It's also insteresting that for this '1959' model they've used the BurstBucker #2 and #3 pickusp while the Gibson CS 1959 Reissue LPs used BurstBucker #1 and #2 pickups. The Epiphone will already have a thicker tone to it, and those pickups are even thicker-toned on top. If my Epi Joe Perry LP is anything to go by (which is exactly the same spec-wise but with a Gibson 60's slim taper neck rather than the 50's neck), this is going to be hellishly thick-toned and possibly very muddy.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
