    Anybody know how hard any of these are to come by? I've only seen two here in the states as they were an L&M exclusive, and I snagged the only Les Paul I've seen for sale. I'm curious how many people know about them, and have encountered them in the wild.

    I had one of the Les Pauls. It was just an OK Epi Les Paul. It was decent guitar but nothing special as a player. I sold it to a teenage girl who thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. I wouldn’t pay a premium for one, decent, but nothing special except for the bling.

    I see 1-2 of them pop up a year. I want to try them.

    They're pretty limited and fairly solid instruments. Nothing else remarkable aside from the cosmetics and maple boards. I had the Negative Flying V once and I liked it.

    Meanwhile, a guy recently tried to sell me a Negative EB-3 with action that was atmospheric.

    Personally, I agree that there aren't any playability differences between them and a regular epiphone. However, they are by far my favorite color scheme for a guitar, and am saddened by how few I've seen and how little people know about them. (except that EB-3, oops)

    That EB3 ain't no cheese cutter. It's a fucking guillotine.
