    Upgraded wiring on Epi Lee Malia

    Yes, the stock pot was a 500k as well. The research I've done online indicates the p94 has enough inductance for a 500k. Shawn

    Upgraded wiring on Epi Lee Malia

    The chronic tinkerer in me decided to upgrade the pots and caps in my Lee Malia and convert to 50s wiring with independent volume controls. I bought vintage CTS 500k pots from Amp Parts, Cabinets, Guitar, Bass, Pickups, Pedals - Mojotone.com as well as the 500k CTS push/pull pot for the coil...

    Epiphone Sales Thread

    Hey guys, This is probably not the right spot to post this, but due to some recent emergency medical bills I am going to have to part with my LM. I have an Epiphone hard case as well and would like to get $750. It's in pristine condition as I haven't been able to play it much due to working...

    NGD Lee Malia Signature Les Paul

    Beautiful! And to echo cybermgk welcome to the very small club! The only thing I did to mine was to change the toggle switch knob to black. I also had some issues with the stain on the fretboard but I fixed it myself and it looks fine to me. Shawn

    NGD - Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Artisan Les Paul

    It's interesting that there seems to be such a shortage of this guitar. I realize that Lee Malia is not that well known in the states, but did Epiphone not realize the unique look of the guitar would garner a lot of interest. I chose the guitar for looks as I'm an old fart and I like nostalgic...

    Did Reverb specifically mention yours as being a second? How much did you pay if you don't mind me asking? I saw some on their site earlier that we're going for $899 with hard case, surely that's not a second? I got mine from Sam Ash...just happened to catch one in stock with no pre order...

    I mentioned on the other thread that the tech at Guitar Center said they looked MOP, but got shot down. But I agree I've never seen pearloid sheen like the inlays on mine do. The inlays on the head stock definitely look MOP. One thing I did too was put a black switch cap on mine. It's look...

    NGD - Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Artisan Les Paul

    Congrats and HNGD! I've had mine since Christmas Day and absolutely love it. The fretboard is pretty much ebonized Rosewood. I had an issue where the dark color started to almost wear off. I got some ebony stain and voila! Back to new! You can see what I did over here: The Epiphone LP...

    future NGD Lee Malia Custom

    We've been discussing this guitar over in the Gibson forums on the Epiphone Electrics board. There are only 4 of us with one currently. We have on good information that there were only about 1,000 made with most being in Europe and Japan. The speculation is there's only a couple of dozen...

    Epiphone ProBucker Pickup review

    I played an Epi Plus Top Pro at GC then a Gibson LP Studio and could barely tell a difference. The Pros are the closest to Gibson I've heard. I was really close to getting the PTP but then I lucked into scoring the LM.
