    Opinions on Epiphone Les Pauls?

    Humm, first day on Earth huh? Let me give you the lay of the land down here. The OP asked "What Epiphone Les Paul do you think is best for the money?" I offered a consideration that most logical people ask themselves. Here on earth @pblanton people leverage their "investments" all the time...

    Good travel case for les paul

    Calton cases. It might be expensive to some, but you travel stress free, and to me that's worth it.

    Anyone else think pricing on certain models don't make sense?

    Why can't hobbyist guitar players get this point??? I really wish someone would explain it to me.

    String stiffness (or lack there of) on 2022 Custom Shop Custom

    Gibson's are FANTASTIC guitars (as you already know) but I would never buy one online. I've always purchased Gibson's in person so I can inspect it, play it, and vibe with it. I don't understand the allure of buying a high dollar instrument, that may have the potential of issues without handling...

    Falling in love with the Les Paul nasal tone

    Thanks for the suggestion, however I'm more interested in hearing about non modified options with the focus on PU height & pole piece positions, with the goal of seeing if there's any unofficial "outline" to balancing both pick ups for "out of phase" faster. I will say I got the tone I was...

    Opinions on Epiphone Les Pauls?

    Dude...get a grip...you read waaaay to much into that.:run: I think most people understand price depreciation. And NO ONE said anything about "keep it in a glass jar". I simply offered an option that the OP may or may not have considered. What is wrong with that. Why does buying a Gibson mean...

    Opinions on Epiphone Les Pauls?

    Save up for a Gibson. It's a better instrument (if you find the right one that feels good to you.) And it's a better investment if you ever decide down the road to move it along or trade.

    Falling in love with the Les Paul nasal tone

    I dialed in the nasal sound via pickup and pole piece adjustments...However, it took about 4 hours to finally get that sound in the neck PU just right, while not having the bridge magnet "tin out" in bridge position. I will say the time spent was worth it. It's a fun position / sound to break...

    Falling in love with the Les Paul nasal tone

    Lately I've become a bit obsessed with the nasal "quack" tone which comes fairly easy on my ES 335, and set up my LP standard (burstbucker 1 & 2) to do the same. I know that tone isn't for everyone (I'm sure some won't be able to resist letting the whole world know), but I dig having that tone...

    Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard Limited 4 Album Edition

    ^^^ALL OF THIS. Some of you guys really need to get a grip. It's just a guitar release that NO ONE is forcing anybody to buy. Moaning on and on about a variety of options is flat out ridiculous.

    Someone reliced a recent Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s

    It has / had a broken headstock so I assume the seller said "F" it. I will say the relic isn't absolutely horrible...like @Rocco Crocco said I've seen worse.

    Gibson Custom Shop Mike Ness 1976 Les Paul Deluxe Aged Gold

    Question, what is your idea of a non "obscene" price for something within this product range?

    Gibson Custom Shop Mike Ness 1976 Les Paul Deluxe Aged Gold

    I've got 3 questions for you.. 1) why do you assume that a "partnership" deal isn't the foundation for a signature guitar release? As opposed to a signature release acting in some way or form as a recognition of the musician? I get that there's a romanticism behind the idea, but sometimes a...

    So What Are Odds on a MIKE NESS Sig LP ?

    It's amazing how people drill into the price of a limited edition guitar, when you have plenty of options to buy either a new stock version OR a vintage option at what ever price point suits your budget. it's as if you ONLY that one one to choose from...it's truly baffling.
