epiphone baritone?!? 24.75 scale?

when i heard the namm news of a baritone lp i dashed to the site (because this is what my other guitarist needs to keep up with my low tunings but he wont put down his lp) and click on it to find under scale length that its still 24.75 inches. now is this a blurb or does it have custom wound pups, or just a really poorly done scam?

Just a typo on the specs page. Those definitely have long necks... look at the amount of space between the pickups.

I'm really liking those. Kudos to Epiphone for putting blank fretboards on 'em. Too bad they have one too few strings, though.

i saw the epiphone page too, which listed the 24.75" scale..... typo

the worn brown one looks nice.... i'd buy one if the price was a little lower.

I'm more inclined to believe the press release is accurate, since it goes on to say the scale length is 3" longer than a standard Les Paul.

Yeah, that worn brown one sure is sweet. If only they'd do a 7.

Yea, but they're standard Les Paul scale (24.75"), and I find even 25.5 isn't long enough for a 7-string to feel right to me, so why bother

I also love the worn brown one, if I get the cash over the summer I may have to pick one of those up, or the Mike Mushok model, not sure which yet. Considering they're around the same price (yes?) and the Mike Mushok's a neck-through, and an Ibanez no less...and I like the shape of the Mushok model better, but if a Les Paul Baritone turns up in a local guitar shop before I can get a hold of a Mushok and if feels and sounds nice, I'll buy one

edit: screw it, after looking at Rich's picture on IbanezRules again and noticing the price is close to the same (the Mushok's $60 more apparently ), the Mushok looks to be what I'm after, though my friend who's a devoted Les Paul and PRS fanatic will be very happy (at least until he can get himself a baritone PRS )

Great, give my Les Paul-loving friend something more to drool over

And hey, the Gibson is a longer scale-length than the Epiphone (but not by much )
