    Hi guys.

    I'm new here on this forum, and in guitar world. :)

    Two or three weeks ago, I bought Epiphone SG Express. I would like to ask you pro's what you think about it? The reason of buying this 3/4 guitar is that I'm on wheel chair and I have problems with hands too. And my wish was to start with learning guitar, so I bought it. Now I started to learning slide in open E tuning, and hope I will as good as my idol Derek Trucks one day. :p

    So you guys think this is an average guitar for start?

    Best regards!

    With the limited space the wheel chair arms probably give you, a 3/4 is probably the way to go. Never played an Epi SG Express, but if you like it, it should be fine to learn on. I started on an Epi G-310 so it can't be worse than that! :laugh2: I think there's also a 3/4 Strat out there too, if that is more your taste...a Squier I believe. Anywho, I wish you luck in your new learning experience and welcome to MLP!

    Just play the shit out of it.
    Fine guitar and rock on for learning anything new. It's what keeps us alive.

    Trucks and Tedeschi CD is great, isn't it?

    Thanks both!

    @KRaZeE: First I almost buy Squier Strat, but then I saw this SG in Whorn Cherry color, and I said, thats what I want. Guitar like Derek's (almost :D) And I think Epiphone made better 3/4 guitar then Squier.

    One day, I would like to put Gibson '57 Classic pickups on it.

    @AngryHatter: I love Derek, and his Already free album is fantastic. I listen to it every day at least 3x. :D

    Hawt wife, too.
    I was into Susan waaay before I knew they were married.
    When I found out, I had to pick my jaw off the floor.

    Squiers aren't bad, neither are epis. Can you try them out?
    Very different feel to the necks.

    I had Squier in hands in one shop, but I just looked at it. So I really don't know the difference. I wish I could have original little Gibson SG one day. :) But I think this is just a dreams.

    They had a 3/4 Zakk Wylde black/cream bullseye Epi V when I went into GC today. I almost bought it to take on vacation with me!
