 Well, they are finally shipping from Sweetwater today, so mine is about a week or so out right now. Just curious if anyone here has info on a European release schedule.

That's pretty cool.  If only they were making a II.

 Time will tell!  I'd love that, I'll take one each in Pelham Blue and Inverness Green please.

AMS got their first load, but mine wasn't shipped. And so I wait... :sad:

I can't see them making a II. Demand seems to be high, they'll run with what's successful.

Yep. If the flyguitars site is correct, Gibson hasn't made a reverse-body II since 1965.  They sold only a few hundred of them fifty years ago. So why would Epiphone expect to sell many IIs today?

I highly doubt they'll make a T-bird II, at least not in my lifetime.  I just wish they would.

Gibson did make a few reverse II's in the early '80s, ask Uwe.
