I've seen that many here says that the Epiphone Elitist are very good guitars, and some say that they are even better then the Gibsons under the Standard. My questions is; wich of the Epiphones are Elitist? Is LP Custom and LP Black Beauty Elitist? Now I own just a Epi Standard but I have thought of buying a new one maybe this spring or summer, and I can't afford a Gibson LP Standard, and the Studios and Faded-series don't seem to be so good.

The elitist is like an lp custom but a fair bit more expensive. They are great guitars without the gibson name on the headstock. I don't know how they compare to gibsons but they are very good...
Buy elect the dead...

The ones that have a different headstock and have 'Elitist' on the back near the volute in the style of the Gibson Custom Shop logo. :P:

Not that it's any reason to hate a guitar because of it, but I really don't like the shape of Elitist headstocks lol

Thanks for the replies, so, it says "Elitist" on the head of the guitar if it is one? Then I don't think they have any of those on the local music-store. But I will look for one the next time, just in case.

Not on the headstock. There's a red stamp near the volute (back of the neck, at the top, behind the headstock.) That says, 'Elitist'. The headstock is also different than the standard Epiphone Headstock.

F**k! An Elitist costs almost 15 000 SEK in Sweden, wich is more than 2 000 $! I can't afford that. I thought it would cost about 10 000 SEK...
