hey i have a few questions. can you buy a gibson style epiphone les paul headstock and have it put on your epi les paul? how much would it cost overall to get done? where can you buy those headstocks? and also which is better a digital amp or a tube amp because iv'e got a crate vintage club 50 on layaway in guitar center its $349.99
You know this means cutting the headstock and gluing in onto your current guitar right? Why would you want to do that?
Don't even think they sell just headstocks!
Probably as much as buying a used MIJ guitar that already HAS the open book headstock.
Refer to first answer.
Are you playing at home or for gigs? What type of stuff are you playing? Do you use effects? Do you need effects? What type of sound are you after? IMO too vague a question to ask.
Well, here's my 2cents.
Digital amps can be good if you're just playing at home and you're still figuring out effects and such since they should have onboard digital efx.
Never played the VC50.. no comments.
way to hijack the thread. anyway, I wish my epi had the open book headstock.
What would be the point? It would still not be a Gibson. Have you not been paying attention to other threads here?
Indeed. An Epi is an Epi. Why would you want to do that?
Unless your ashamed of having an Epi...
well im not gonna be doin' that then... i just love the look of that gibson style with that epiphone name on it it looks wonderful! but ok i'm damn sure i'm not havin' it cut off and another glued on. i play classic rock. mostly zeppelin.
i'm in a crappy band now but im hoping to start a band called zed leppelin and start giging. my band now is thinking about giging. the guy at guitar center said i'd definately be heard over any drummer. iv'e got a crate vintage club 50 on layaway. GREAT amp as far as i can see. 50 watts of pure tube power! what do you think?
i'm surely not ashamed of havin' an epi i just like that gibson shaped headstock. i really don't like the epiphone one.
hey does annyone think this is a good idea?...
i have: an epiphone les paul ultra
what i'm gonna do:i love led zeppelin and i want to start a very zeppeliny band called zed leppelin. i want to install the jimmy page push pull pot system and ive found a pair of jimmy page custom pickups. i'd also like to some how get my neck cut down for fastest action and best tone. ive played a peavy before and abselutely wonderful neck my fingers almost played by themselves! what do you all think?
SMART AS HELL...
I WANT ONE OF THESE JAPAN EPIPHONE...
they haven't been made in years, so they are all used and prized collectibles, good luck as they are getting expensive.
If you want a good cheap Les Paul, get one of the Gibson Studio Vintage Mahogany, it's around $700.00 USD new.
i like that open book headstock for epis
Yes, they're really easy on the eyes
life55 did you sell or even own that antique white?
Epiphone Elitist Les Paul Custom - eBay (item 180383298084 end time Aug-14-09 07:40:28 PDT)
Thats pretty cheap. Im not sure if its an eliist but its definately a mij
For me epiphone headstocks looks better than gibson's... much more characteristic...
I found this one here. Not only is the headstock the same shape as a Gibson, it even says 'Gibson' instead of 'Epiphone'. It looks very much like my antique white Epiphone Les Paul Custom (except for the headstock). You can see it's got a 'pearl' inlay in the first fret, like an Epiphone, as well as Epiphone-style tuning keys.
At $320US, the price tag is also very Epiphone. According to the eCrater.com listing, the seller is in China, where my Epiphone was manufactured. Is it likely that the guitar in the picture was made at an Epiphone factory?
Here is an interesting 'Gibson' headstock:
You know...looking at that, Gibson probably pulled the plug on the bookend headstocks because it would be a lot easier to pass those guitars off as legit Gibsons.
(I suppose there's no point in cutting one's own throat).
TBH I kind of like the fact Epi has its own headstock. I know they're pretty much relegated to being a Gibson clone dumping ground, but once upon a time they were a legitimate, independent guitar manufacturer with their own models.
