    Hi

    I've got a Reverend Jetstream. Due to it being slightly more expensive than an Epi LP Custom I wonder whether it would make sense to upgrade the wiring, potentiometers etc., too.

    What do you think???

    I have an Elite made in 1996 in Korea. How does it compare to Japan-made model? Any idea how many were made? I heard maybe 102 but not sure.

    Hi guys,

    This thread is not meant for people to ask questions, it is a collection of answers to frequently asked questions. If you have a specific question regarding your guitar or Epis in general and cannot find the answer in this thread, or like most of us - really can't be bothered to look through this thread or search the board LOL - please just start a new thread for it. Asking a question in this thread is the best way to make certain that it won't be answered.

    Thanks!

    Robert

    lot of material to read here but one thing i was noticing is that the author here said the studio les pauls had dot inlays not trapezoidal or rectangular mother of pearl Is that true only for the epiphone lps as i have owned a gibson studio lp in the past and it had trapezoidal mop inlays on it. dang i miss that guitar i like a young idiot pawned it for 200 bucks years ago

    Epi Studio Deluxe models also have trap inlays and this happens to be the Epi section of the board so we generally discuss that brand of guitar, not Gibsons.

    If thats correct then that also means that my guitar was sitting in a box waiting for me to pick it out for a little bit more than a year. :shock:


    Yep,

    April 2010, QingDao made

    It looks like yours was made the day after Grapeflavor's? His answer applies to you too.

    Hi

    and Welcome here :wave:

    Your guitar was not made in USA
    it is a 'JDM' (Japan domestic market)

    Here is more information about it

    Japanese Les Pauls - The Unofficial Epiphone Wiki

    and the guys in the 'other Les Paul' section probably can tell you more about where and when it was made....

    Hi, i seen this is the fact section for epips.

    I have a epiphone lp sepcial II and the neck joint was badly damaged so i cut a piece of Mahogany out and refilled neck joint.

    My question is??? Is there a 3.0 degree angle i need to route like most gibs stuff (beside real les pauls which i believe are 4.4)? Or is the bolt on necks same as a fenders dimensions. If they are not the same as fenders does anyone know the depth and wide i will need to route down too?

    Please if anyone could help, i'd be greatful. Thanks

    I don't think this is so much an Epi question as one for a luthier. Try posting in Luthier's Corner - My Les Paul Forums.

    Howdy-I'm very new to this forum--or any forum--and would appreciate help in navigating this site. I'm an Elitist owner, with many questions about this instrument, and probably need to start my own thread? How does one do that? Please forgive my abysmal ignorance.

    Hi, and welcome to MLP!

    Yes, the best thing would be to start your own thread. It's very easy, all you have to do is click on NEW THREAD at the top left of the Forum, just above the list of threads. From there, give your thread a title and post the starting message. We love our Epis here, especially Elitists. And don't forget to include some pictures of your guitar. :D
