    I have approximately $2500 into mine but that's Canadian .
    So probably 5 bucks American with the exchange rate.
    There are a couple sitting on reverb for quite a bit more.....but they're sitting.

    Has anyone played both Amos as well as the Epiphone V? I would really like to know how the necks compare (thickness).

    I have, it was a very recent Epi '58 V right before the new "Amos" hit the shelves. I was surprised that the neck didn't seem any bigger (if not a hair slimmer) on the Amos.

    Construction wise they appear to be the same guitar beyond the appointments, color, and under the veneer is 2 piece center matched body for the Amos.

    Hamer Vector is a thicker body and a 3-piece neck. I had a Vector / Standard set with Brazilian next to the Gibson 50ths. Great, but does not sound like a Gibson. Tighter with a more focused attack vs the thinner body and one piece neck of the Gibson. The 2008 50th limited runs Gibson did were great sounding and pretty dang accurate. Wish I still had mine.
