    Epiphone ProBucker Pickup review

    I got mine from someone who had bought an Epi and immediately pulled the pups. However, mine are still sitting in a drawer as I haven't gotten around to swapping anything yet. Shane

    Epiphone 2009 vs 2020 Les Paul 1959 Standard

    The OP is in Canada and I think the list price up here is $1150 which makes the final taxes in price around $1300. Shane

    Epiphone 2009 vs 2020 Les Paul 1959 Standard

    I have the 2009 version and it's a great guitar although I've always disliked the rim burst. Beyond that though, a great player and a very solid guitar. The neck on mine is not very chunky and although over never measured, it is much closer to a slim taper than the chunkier necks I have (1960...

    Resale value of our beloved Epi's

    That's one of the ones I paid a bit more for. I had almost talked myself into buying a new one when this one appeared on the used market. Grabbed it without a second thought. Shane

    Resale value of our beloved Epi's

    It's more the market for used instruments here from what I can tell. Several of these sat on various marketplace sites for quite some time and as the price dropped, they got to the point of "I don't need it but really can't pass it up for that price." Shane

    Resale value of our beloved Epi's

    I haven't purchased a new Epi since 2001 but I have a few that I've picked up used over the past few years. These are the Lester's I currently have; all purchased used and except for two, less than 50% of what they sold for new. I could probably sell most for about what I paid or maybe a...

    No, they're really limited as most don't have that decal. :lol:

    Epiphone || Showcase your guitar...

    I picked them all up used (and one trade) and most I got for less than what I'd say they're worth. Except for the tobacco burst (Tribute +) and the '56, they're all limited editions (Inspired by '55, '57 Jr, 1959 Standard ('09), 1960 Standard V1 and Bonamassa Goldtop). Shane

    Is this truly an ‘Inspired By’ issue?

    My favourite Epi! Picked one up used a couple years ago and haven't looked back. Shane

    Whichever one I grab; although a couple are usually in alternate tunings so that will guide the decision as well. I occasionally think of getting rid of a few but I enjoy playing them all and have no reason to downsize so I haven't yet. Shane

    Actually had all my Epi Lesters in one place; figured it was a great time for a group shot! Shane

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    All of the MiC Les Pauls I own have long neck tenons so this can clearly be done in the Chinese factory. Shane

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Maybe there are a bunch for sale; I've not really looked for one since I got mine but when I was looking for one, I'd usually see one for sale every three weeks or so and I've only ever seen one for sale locally. I do wish mine had a teardrop instead of a rimburst but definitely not a big...

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    I'm not sure there are so many available for sale; a quick search showed none on reverb and one on eBay. Personally, there's nothing with this one that would have me consider it in addition to or to replace my 50th 1959 but it clearly seems there is lots of interest in this model. Shane

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Which last run? The 2009 50th Anniversary model? Shane

    Tribute + or?

    If I couldn't play it first, I'd choose the one with the thickest neck so given the options, the 50. However, while I do wish my T+ had a thicker neck, it's a great guitar that I don't plan to get rid of anytime soon. Shane

    Epiphone LP neck pickup issue

    FWIW - I played for about 15 years running direct to amp. I now have a few dirt boxes, a chorus, a delay a wah and a tuner on my pedal board. The only one I use regularly is the tuner pedal. Not sure I sound good but the eq and gain knobs give me most everything I need. Shane

    2008 Les Paul Standard: Microphonic Pickups

    Perhaps I'm missing something but if you are using headphones (I assume with speaker defeat) what exactly is feeding back? Shane

    Probably a honeyburst; as I recall, in the early 2000's, honeyburst seemed to cover quite a variety. Shane

    Difference between Trad. Pro-III versus Std. Plus Top Pro?

    Depending on the amp, many of the Transtube Peaveys were pretty decent. I started with a Studiopro 112 about 20 years ago and still play it on occasion. I never made friends with the Rage or Blazer models but depending on your intended style, if that's what you have, it will very likely be...
