Guitar players should feel more at home now that the Mini II has a longer scale length than its predecessor (580mm vs 510mm) and standard tuning (E tuning vs A tuning).

Comes in all mahogany, all flame maple and spruce/ebony construction. This should be popular among buyers looking for travel guitars.

E2.6 in Trans Blood Red Matte pictured above

Quite impressive for a new brand that’s only started late last year. The new guitars consist of left-handed models, some 7-strings and a couple of familiar shapes like the Explorer.

Three gorgeous models are available and the Daphne Blue one with the Filter’Tron pickups looks really good. Wow.

Made to look like the original prototype launched in 1958, this one has all the right ingredients. Offered only in Sunburst.

Triple Jazzmaster

Most likely named this way due to the triple Filter’Tron pickups, this looks really cool in the Daphne Blue finish.

60th Anniversary Classic Jazzmaster

Block inlays and matching headstock give this something unusual. The Classic Jazzmaster is reproduction of the 1966 model and comes in four colours.

The forearm and belly cuts, HSS pickup configuration and 5-way switch are taken from the Strat. But exclusive features such as compound radius and Pure Vintage ’64 pickups are quite interesting.

Pickups are the classic unbeatable 59/JB combo so this should command a premium over other Epis if it comes to SG.
