    NGD: Harley Benton SC-550 Les Paul Copy in Paradise Amber (Pics Included)

    Good question. I'm sorry to say but I haven't weighed it. I'll try and weight it for you ASAP. Funny you should ask, I picked up one of my Orvilles after playing this and the Orville felt much heavier than it usually does! I will add that particular Orville is darn heavy. Feels heavier than most...

    NGD: Harley Benton SC-550 Les Paul Copy in Paradise Amber (Pics Included)

    Yes, they do indeed have a similar look to those Joe Perry Boneyard Les Pauls. Is that your own or somebody elses? Are those Korean of Chinese? I've had a multitude of Epiphones and I for one personally feel the modern stuff is much superior to the Korean stuff (again, just my opinion). I don't...

    NGD: Harley Benton SC-550 Les Paul Copy in Paradise Amber (Pics Included)

    I personally cannot give a definitive answer, I don't think they will disclose the full details but here's some speculation and stuff I've heard online. All I can say, Harley Benton - well, from what I gather they're essentially Thomann's (very large guitar store/online retailer in Germany)...

    NGD: Harley Benton SC-550 Les Paul Copy in Paradise Amber (Pics Included)

    Hello folks, I just picked up this Harley Benton SC-550. She is in "Paradise Amber Flame". Usual maple top and mahogany body and neck. Rosewood board. I think she is really nice. Slim 60s neck profile. Wilkinson zebra humbuckers. Strap locks too but I think I'll lose those for standard...

    Univox Les Paul Copies - Like Earl Hooker?

    Hey folks, Just wondering.. does anyone on here have any experience with old Univox Les Paul copies? I believe one of these was actually used by Earl Hooker. I've saw some old black and white photographs and videos and while I can't make the name out on the headstock, it certainly is some kind...

    Les Paul R8 58 Reissue Sanded Down Video

    Thanks for the posts, folks. :) I think the general consensus seems to be "Well.. I'd never dream of doing that.. but each to their own. If it makes him happy.. good for him". Pretty much as I expected as I feel the exact same! First off, I'll say I could be totally wrong.. but I get the...

    The Fake Epiphone Thread II

    I couldn't make that out. My eyes only allowed to see a "U" which I assumed was the beginning of a U serial number. I now see that it is "USED" as you say.. I've never seen that before. So.. essentially that is stamped on factory seconds? I thought so.. so that's why the one in the listing is...

    The Fake Epiphone Thread II

    Also.. does anyone here recall the three pickup SG Epiphone released years ago? I think it was called the Deluxe.. and actually under the "Les Paul" labelling.. assuming it was a tribute of an early 60s Les Paul/SG. Like this: Anyways.. does anyone know if those were commonly known to be...

    The Fake Epiphone Thread II

    Does it say somewhere that is is a factory second? :hmm: I honestly can't see if it does but I may have missed it. I'd say it's probably quite old.. U serial.. Maybe means Unsung. I was under the impression it was that price because it was a single P90 model Junior. It seems like all they have...

    The Fake Epiphone Thread II

    I agree. I would have though if indeed they did exist.. one may have cropped up on the boards by now though? I did see one somewhat questionable one on a Tele forum once. I'll try and find the link just for curiosity sake.. you can have a look if you wish. :) I saw this one on eBay UK today...

    Wanted: Epiphone Les Paul Junior with P90

    Wanted: Epiphone Les Paul Junior with P90 As above. :) Looking for a Epiphone Les Paul Junior with P90. Preferably TV Yellow but Sunburst, Black etc is okay too. One of the '57 Reissues would be ideal. I saw one on eBay a while back and I regret not buying it. If anyone has one that they're...
