So I'm going to get the Epiphone version of edge's acoustic, but I can't decide which colour to get..sunburst or natural..I would get both if I could afford it lol..

Get the tuners changed. The stock one's on the Epi are horrid. And get a good setup.

Natural. I played a couple of these one time and they are good acoustics. Of course Gibson's version is better but the Epiphone works quite nice. I need a decent acoustic for songwriting ideas and for road trips and I'm thinking on one of these (Epiphone's). Have to agree with Edge Orchestra on the setup and tuner change. I think I have a black and white photo of Edge playing his J-200 somewhere. Must. Find!

Found it! I think it belongs to a member here. At least that's where I found it and saved it cause I liked how it looked. Very good photo might I say!

The Natural J-200 he's been using is a Pete Towshend model. They came out in 2004. Edge has a few of them. They list at $5,916. MSRP

Gibson - Gibson Guitar: Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Bass Guitars



You can see Pete's signature at the 19th and 20th Frets

(Yikes)

I've played one. They are lovely guitars.

That is one very expensive guitar. The only thing I never got was what's the difference between the Pete Townshend model and the regular model?

There are some differences. Plus they are handmade by the Gibson Custom shop, if memory serves. Worth $5000+? Beauty is in the eyes and ears of the beholder. IF I had the $5K, I'd have one.
