And the neck IS finished, it's just in a smoother satin finish...which aren't bad at all, it's just preference.
Unless it's a real natural binding. Like this:

EPI: I thought all Epiphones were made by Samick. (smiling)

JIM: I think that's what a lot of people still think. But that never was the case. Fifteen years ago, a lot of, but certainly not all, Epiphone guitars as well as other brands, were made at the Samick factory in Korea. Today, they don't make any guitars for us. In fact, they closed the Samick guitar factory in Korea a few years ago.
Lead, follow and get out of the way.

It's a Studio with a satin finish and better pickups. In fact, unless the changed it without me knowing, it has the same pickups as a Standard. But I'd easily get an Epi LP Custom over that, just because I don't like the finish and lack of binding.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.
