How do you know when a guitar isn't really going to be any kind of a collector's item? I mean can you imagine the angst at knowing you ruined an original Gibson 59 Les Paul, not ruined but hurt the value?
So, I'm just curious as to what you guys think when it comes to modding your Epi's? Are any of them worth anything years later? Now don't go throwing your picks at me, I'm not trying to be a Gibson snob. All the guys I hang with are though. They tell me that Epi's are a poor man's Gibson and that they don't even compare to Epi's.
So, I'm asking the Epi experts here that question. Say, for example is it any big deal to take an Epi LP Zakk Wylde and do whatever you want to it?
Well i'm pretty sure mine won't ever be worth much,so i'd have no issues with modding it as much as i like.The ZW one....i would really say the same.The Gibson version might end up collectable one day,but i very much doubt it with the epi.I really tend to play all my guitars,so i don't entertain the idea of their cash worth.
