    Fake LP - at least seller is honest

    Its still illegal and unethical to sell counterfeit items even with full disclosure from the seller that its fake. The law is pretty abundantly clear on this.

    Various Epiphone quality issues.

    The biggest complains I have about Epiphones are the following: 1. Sub-par fretwork. I perform my own fretwork on my guitars so I'm very fussy when it comes to ensuring that the frets on my guitars are all flawlessly level. I've never played an Epiphone in my entire life that didn't need some...

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit

    Neither of those guitars come with the same set of features as the JB 355 tho. i never said that this guitar was amazing value for money, but considering the fact that it's a signature, has an ebony board, (which gets a significant markup regardless of the brand), an OHSC and $250 worth of...

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit

    A generic ES335 in ebony doesn't have an ebony fretboard tho. And ebony makes a whole world of difference to the guitar aesthetically and in terms of feel. Bigsby B7's with Vibramates are not exactly cheap either. It also comes with an OHSC while a base 335 doesn't iirc. And the assumption that...

    No. That's absolute nonsense.

    New MIJ, which one?

    I actually like the sharpened horn - makes the guitar look more aggressive and ESP-like.

    New MIJ, which one?

    You really cannot go wrong with any of the guitars mentioned. My FGN LC20 is an absolute monster and it still puts a huge smile on my face. Whenever I feel fed up, I am compelled to pick it up and I instantly find my happy place.

    NUGD: Epiphone Prophecy SG

    Epiphone frequently dye their rosewood fretboards darker to make them look more like ebony. I own a Futura Propecy (that I'm selling) that does the exact same thing as what you're describing. But it's definitely rosewood. The wood pores don't look anything like ebony despite the fretboard's...

    NUGD: Epiphone Prophecy SG

    Does this guitar actually have an ebony fingerboard? Looks very rosewood-y from the pics. I recall that Epiphone were not very transparent about what fretboards are used for the Prophecy series.
