    it seems like there's always a few Gibson Rippers on Ebay. some are over priced but if you're patient, you can get one in good condition for a fair price. on the other hand, I haven't seen many Epiphone or Ibanez Rippers. the pickups on the Gibson are much better, so why not get the real thing? I don't think your friend will be disappointed.

    the Epiphone Ripper only has one pickup unlike the Gibson. It'd be more of a fixed pickup Grabber

    Yoda,

    1) This should be in the gear wanted section.
    2) Posting fifteen minutes apart doesn't speed up responses.
    3) $150-300 best not include shipping, because that lone will run you about $150
