    Tips for Selling an Epiphone Online

    Hey guys, I'm considering selling my LP Custom Plus and, obviously, selling it online would open me up to a much larger purchaser base than only selling it locally. To those who have sold their guitars online: How did you package it? I have an Epiphone case and I still have the Gibson shipping...

    NGD Les Paul Standard '60s in Bourbon Burst

    Just got my first Gibson in the mail. It's beautiful! I love the flamed and grained maple top. Looking it over, the fit and finish seem great. The fret board was bone dry, but that was easily remedied. I have one question: my other Les Paul has a poly finish and obviously never had an issue...

    I also need some constructive criticism.

    Do these shorts make me look fat?

    Epi Resale Value

    I may have been bitten by the GAS bug again, but to purchase a new guitar (Tak Matsumoto Elitist, most likely) I would have to sell my Epi. Nothing is decided yet, but what could I expect to get for my ULTRA-AWESOME-LIMITED-EDITION DISCONTINUED-COLOR Custom Plus if I decided to sell? Has the Epi...

    GC Sale

    Right now GC has an in-store sale going on, good through Sunday, where you can get an Epi LP Jr. for $29 if you buy another guitar for $499. Not a bad deal.

    Robot Studios being cleared out

    Not sure this is because the Robot line is cratering, but Musician's Friend is blowing out Robot Studios for the price of a Studio Premium Plus. I've never played one, and I know some people LOATHE them, but for the new price, they seem a bit more attractive now. Look here

    Upgrading My LP (again)

    A couple weeks ago, I lucked into a brand new set of Grover Locking Tuners. I've finally decided to install them and I was wondering what else I could do to my guitar, since this will be the last time I upgrade it. Thus far I've added Schaller straplocks, TonePros locking bridge/tailpiece set...

    What's going on here?

    I was perusing Sweetwater and I saw this: Guitar Gallery | Sweetwater.com Guitar Gallery | Sweetwater.com The necks are set differently. The others on Sweetwater vary like this. What's going on here? Setting the necks a bit shallower to reach the higher frets easier?

    eBay scammers stealing from this forum

    Last night I posted a thread about finding an eBay auction by KITTYROCK123 that was using a picture of MY guitar to sell his fakes. I guess a mod felt the swearing was excessive (I was rightfully pissed off) and pulled the thread. Anyway, I figure this is important enough info to get out to you...

    Well, I'm fed up.

    I've been waiting for MONTHS to get a reserve slot with the local luthier to get an honest-to-goodness setup for my LP. I'm tired of waiting. What's a good online resource I could consult to walk me through everything (truss rod, action, etc)? What tools should I go out and buy? Best types of...

    Need some quick help

    So I got my guitar back from the shop a couple days ago, and I swore something looked a bit off. Today I had a chance to really sit down and practice with it and I noticed the neck pickup was sitting like this: The pickup is supposed to be parallel to the strings, yes? Did the guitar tech put...

    Well, it finally happened

    I assumed as long as I was careful and didn't throw myself around like a maniac, I would have no need for strap locks. Today, while practicing, the strap screw decided to free itself from the confines of the guitar and take the strap with it. Now that I have to buy strap locks, what would be a...

    General Epiphone Les Paul questions

    What kind of neck profile does the Epi Les Paul Custom have ('50s or '60s)? What exactly is inlaid on the fretboard? Is it plastic? Ceramic? The "block inlays" description is wonderfully vague. How many pieces of wood generally make up the neck and body of an Epi Les Paul? Thanks!

    Quick LP Custom Question

    I noticed on the back of my Wine Red custom's headstock that it says Epiphone Custom Shop Limited Edition. Do all LP Customs have this little Limited Edition gold stencil? Is the "Limited Edition" just marketing BS? Plus, I thought I was supposed to get a basic Wine Red custom (just the wine red...
