That SG looks nice, something about SGs and that natural wood look
I just noticed... NO neck plate! ONE more thing to upgrage.
Why not buy an Epi LP standard if you're going to upgrade everything anyway?
Because it's not like a Melody Maker?
I'd rather buy a good inexpensive guitar, and mod it the way I want, instead of buying a more expensive guitar, and having to do almost all the same upgrades! I'm more concerned more about guitar utility, than guitar beauty and hypothetical future resale value. This approach allows me to afford and enjoy more guitars ...more variety.
I prefer that style, I wish more bolt-ons came like that
I never saw the need to upgrade the higher end Epiphones, so I guess that's why I would just buy an Epi standard or custom instead of modding a cheaper one.
I dig inexpensive gits but that spec set just looks like a cheap toy.
for a $100 guitar, that's exactly what I'm looking for
It seems the have a couple of new cheaper LP's now:
note the neck joint. Looks a better guitar than the SL imo.
I think they look like they might be fun.I play the crap out of my Special II. Added tuners, new nut and P90's. It plays and sounds plenty good to me and I learned a bit about doing some mods as well.
^ i did the same. added a toneman harness, a 60's gibson p90 at the bridge, and
that thing sings all day long. even with a bolt on neck lmao
14:1 tuners are most certainly Grover.
why is it some folks just have to make it sound like they know what they're talking about ? they don't just throw parts together; neck material, fingerboard, body wood, all dictate what electronics work best. This has already been test reviewed, ' out of the box;' and the verdict is, ' good to go as is.' There are, " players," not pretend to be's or wanna be's using these units, studio and stage and the non pro's offering, ' mods???" get bloody real mate.
Why do some folks trip out about what someone else does with their own guitar? Live and let live, mate.
14:1 tuners...rotomatics, most certainly GROVERS. Given the volume of tuners Grover supplies Epiphone I suspect they get an even better price than the average consumer at the average shop. The pro reviews found these tuners exemplary.
Such a statement exposes ignorance of construction. I love P90's, on weighty mahogany, but not on poplar.... jibberish detracts from what could be a meaningful discussion.
I was called upon to replace the tuners on a "no-name" 70's Asian LP-type. Very cheap guitar with what seemed to be masonite painted top and bottom and pine sides. It had tuners just like the guitar here, and they sere slipping. I went to our little local music store to get a new set of tuners to put on it. They had exactly the same kind of tuners in stock for $32 for a set of 6! Can't remember the brand, but I can verify that these are VERY cheap tuners on the guitar in this thread! (the yellow one)
As a postscript, when I got that cheap old LP copy set up with new tuners, strings, and adjustment, it sounded great. I have no idea why.
did see the pic or did you read post #22 ?
I see a great future for You....
