30, and brand new here on the site.
Glad to be here!
I am 42. I was in my mid 30s when I bought my first Epi and have owned 8-10 since then. Most were great guitars, 4 Elitists, with the only " dog " being a Chinese L.P. Standard.
I'm well over 18.... shouldn't even be here.... But for the life of me, got to hang around to see what the younger generation is up too!
Actually 2 of my my Epi's are over 18.
Bought the acoustic in '72 & I was over 18 at the time.
It still plays great.
Me, maybe not so great.
We have the same birthday .
I'm 19 and have an Epi 57'LE Goldtop. Apparently you don't have to put your age down when you buy an Epi.
My Epi LP Custom is 19 so even that makes the cut, and I'm 41.
Checking in at 49
I'm 33 here. Been an Epi fan since I bought my Aqua Casino back in 1998!
A 42 year old Epi fan here!!!
I am 37 and bought my first one today and I love it.
I have my first Epi LP at 46.
I have owned many guitars over the years.. Mostly Kramer, Fender, Ibanez and Gibson. I started looking for a nice new Gibson LP for under $1000 and was having a hard time finding one that did not feel cheap and also played well. I just play for myself and was having a hard time justifing to myself as well as my wife to spend $2000-$3000 on a new guitar. So... I started looking at the Epiphones and found a lot of nice ones for $500-$700. I just gave up on the Gibson LP and got a nice Epiphone LP and I love playing it a lot. I play it so much, that I started looking for a Fender Strat under $1000, so I could play some Stevie Ray Vaughn and some other country stuff. I was having a hard time at that as well and ended up getting a nice Squire Fat Strat that plays just as good as my Epiphone LP. It just goes to show you that you can find some sweet guitars for under $500, especially with a 15% or $100 off coupon at GC.
I can always change out the electronics to get a better sound if I start doing more or maybe get in a band. But... You can't always make a guitar play great and feel good in your hands if it never felt good or played great for you to start off with.
Too many people forget this. They get what looks good and think upgrades will make it play well. You're absolutely right. It has to feel good before you can make it sound good.
You are a spoiled man. I see all those Goldtops/Les Pauls you have there.
My GT with P90's doesn't sound that bad though. I will probably swap out electronics on the Squire Fat Strat, but probably only pots and caps on the GT.
hey i'm 22 and I just bought my LP standard last month
38 and just got my first Epi a couple of weeks ago, a Les Paul 1960 Tribute in trans black.
24 right here
Question is too dumb to give a proper answer to.....
I'm 49 and looking forward to 50 in May.
The Ghoul over day!
Uh I had a Sheraton II when I was 30. It got me back into guitars after I sold my '68 Custom.
