buyers remorse! Epiphone Japan Les Paul Custom Limited LQ

So I hit the buy it now button on eBay after having wanted one of these forever. I'm thinking once it shows up the remorse will go away. May have paid a little more than I wanted but I think it will be worth it. Can't wait! for it to get here!

Re: buyers remorse! Epiphone Japan Les Paul Custom Limited Nitro

I know I'm going to love it, just a little remorse since I need another guitar like a hole in the head!. G.A.S won out again, I fought the good fight but ended up giving in

Re: buyers remorse! Epiphone Japan Les Paul Custom Limited Nitro

I am the same way. I feel remorse or guilt anytime I buy something that really isn't a necessity. My wife actually bought my Gold Top because I couldn't justify spending $2k+ on a guitar..

With that being said, just play it. Eventually the remorse will go away and you will have a great guitar

Yep, I realized that after I posted it. That was from the eBay description. The actual manufacturer sheet shows it as "LTD ED. LP CST LQ EB"

Shoot, I feel that way any time I spend over $400 on a guitar. I think a guitar over $2k would give me a stroke.

Re: buyers remorse! Epiphone Japan Les Paul Custom Limited LQ

Just ordered a set of black Seymour Duncans with gold pole pieces and without logo's. JB for the bridge, 59 for the neck. A set of paper and oil caps, gold tulip replacement buttons for the tuners, and a case. Turning into a pretty spendy day. Can't wait to get everything swapped out, polished up and start playing!! Pics will follow as soon as it gets here and is upgraded

One of the reasons that I don't care for Epi LP's is the ugly headstock. That is an awesome headstock. I volunteer to be the garbage man if you decide to throw it out. Congrats on a gorgeous guitar.

You and I went the same route man! I originally only planned on replacing the bridge, but seeing that brand new gold bridge on a guitar with 13 year old gold everything else, I just couldn't help myself


Enjoy it man! Don't forget to pick up a comfortable strap too! Mine is a fat son of a bitch at 10.2 pounds! My old strap wasn't cutting it!

Great looking guitar! I just picked up a 2006 Epi LP Std and I am putting the same SD combo in her JB/59. I'm also upgrading her wiring to the Jimmy Page system.

Re: buyers remorse! Epiphone Japan Les Paul Custom Limited LQ

A friend of mine and a fellow MLP member has that exact guitar and loves it.It does have a very fat neck he tells me.I have a LQ also but in a Honeyburst finish and it's my favorite go-to guitar and best Les Paul I've ever owned-bar none.Fujigen craftsmanship at it's finest imo.Resonance,sustain,fit and finish,playability-has it all in spades.
Congrat's-you won't regret it.BTW,the seller is a friend of mine and you have no worries there either.

I have an Elite in the honeyburst finish and it is an awesome guitar that I will never sell. Glad to hear I have nothing to worry about on the sale. His feedback is REALLY good so I didn't think twice about buying it.

Very nice! Wait until you can't put it down and then next thing you know you're buying another.

Re: buyers remorse! Epiphone Japan Les Paul Custom Limited LQ

I had buyers remorse once. I bought a set of emg's. And was remorseful that i'd bought such a toneless pickup; and returned them before even opening the box. I've been much happier since

Awesome guitar, I have one just like it and they are excellent guitars. Finish is thin so it will get that aged look the more you play it.
Congrats!

Just a correction, nitro is not "illegal" in Japan. They sell it at the hardware store here and I have bought it before.
