In my almost never-ending search for new and 'different' guitars, I have suddenly delveloped an interest in a Les Paul 12-string. (I had the opportunity to pick up a goldtop version a few years back, but never pulled the trigger.) It appears as though there has not been a discussion on these...
To make a very long story short; when I very first got interested in playing guitar I picked up some really bad information about guitars. Somewhere, somehow, I got the word that there were only two 'real' guitars for playing rock and roll . . . a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson Les Paul –...

Long story short - some years ago I owned a vintage Coronado . . . cool looking but didn't sound great, at all. Just wondering if anyone has had any experince with the reissues that came out a few years back?
Sorry if this thread has come up before (I couldn't find it when I did a search); but is there any sort of consensus on the current Epiphone Melody Maker? I tried one out at the local guitar shop - the neck felt nice, but it was bowed and it played like a beast. I couldn't help but wonder what...
