    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    Fine. You all want the truth? I'll tell you but you won't like it. So I like arrived at rehearsals with my Gibson guitar & everyone was like, wow dude! & I was like, yah I know. Then everyone asked to touch it. So I let them touch it But then They were like, dude can we have your autograph...

    Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard 1997

    Anyone know the background of this guitar? It doesn't look like a historical reissue. Was it just a Les Paul Standard with an ABR-1 bridge?

    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    Yeah the anaconda thing. See the guitar dealers did market it as having a long tenon, even in the videos. Go see for yourselves. But I was like high on acid when I wrote those messages so I can't even remember what I said. Maybe I hallucinated or something? It's possible I mean, I do A LOT of...

    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    I like went to my band rehearsal okay & the guys were like, dude you have a Gibson & I was like, yeah man. They all wanted to touch it & play it. I felt like a rockstar & it made me play like one too. But then I was like, man this is really embarrassing & I'm being a jerk because I'm making them...

    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    Right now I'm like really stoned because I've just smoked a bunch of weed so I'm feeling really chill & non hostile. I don't want anyone to twist my mellow. So like, I had to work double shifts at McDonald's & gas stations, you know things like that because I flunked at school for wanting to...

    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    Lots of serious guitarists are choosing Epiphone over Gibson, it's no big deal. & Gibson are losing guitarists by the day. They're just not considered cool in rocking circles anymore. They've become a yuppie brand for yuppie collectors. Musicians don't wanna be associated with that crowd lol...

    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    The Epiphone Classic has a real maple top, no veneers. No weight relief. No chambering. Better hardware (it doesn't fall off the body when you change strings) & ordinary people prefer its appearance over a Gibson Les Paul. What's not to love? A doctor or a lawyer might hate it because hey, it's...

    My Epiphone LP is better than my Gibson LP

    No. I got rid of the Gibson Classic & several Gibson Les Paul Standards plus one Traditional because the Epiphone is a better guitar. I've kept a Custom shop & a signature model but I still play the Epiphone more because it's more fun However, the Epiphone did need a set-up to unlock its...

    Debating "imperfections"

    Guys I'd like to issue an apology. I get it, I finally understand So, I removed my neck pickup & that's when it happened... some guy has written something inside the cavity with a marker pen. A god damn marker pen & to add insult to financial injury I don't even know what the hell it means. It...

    Debating "imperfections"

    Remember, everything I've said about the Anaconda isn't real because a bunch of emojis on a computer screen say so... Also, the word of several highly reputable guitar dealers isn't real for the same reason... I mean hey, why trust their word when a seething yuppie who doesn't even own the...

    Debating "imperfections"

    Yeah, let me cut to the chase here because I can see a little lynch mob of seething yuppies has formed & they're having nervous breakdowns because I'm refusing to behave like one of their subordinates... I'm not going to do what any of you tell me to do. I'm not your secretary. I'm not your...

    Debating "imperfections"

    That's right your majesty. See your highness, I'm not one of your subjects & I'm not gonna negotiate with your sense of entitlement or your bratty demands. If you want me to ruin my strings & waste around 45 minutes of my day dismantling a guitar you're gonna have to pay. $100 bucks set up fee...

    Debating "imperfections"

    Personally, I like knowing my handmade American instrument wasn't crafted in Nazi Germany & I love all these so called "cosmetic imperfections" the cork sniffing yuppies see. I imagine a fellow working class American Joe swaggering into the Gibson guitar factory with a stinking hangover &...

    Debating "imperfections"

    The rules seem to be as follows: A handmade Gibson guitar should have absolutely no traces of it being a handmade instrument on its body. Otherwise it's worthless... But if it has "aesthetically pleasing imperfections" created by the Custom Shop or a company like Historic Makeovers then it's...

    Debating "imperfections"

    I've seen some guys become inconsolable wrecks & throw deranged tantrums just because their handmade guitar with vintage specs has handmade features they were warned about in the products advertizing & I'm like, wow, that's hilarious but kind of terrifying at the same time. But mostly hilarious.

    Debating "imperfections"

    Sure, buy me a fresh pack of strings & that'll be a $100 labor charge (dismantling the guitar, taking pictures & setting it all up again. Just for you...)

    Debating "imperfections"

    Surely cosmetic flaws are a testament to the fact that they're handmade guitars & shouldn't this be a reassuring thing? I mean, if Les Paul's were 100% aesthetically perfect it'd raise questions & concerns? Like, make people suspect them of being made by machines instead of people? Also, why...

    Gibson USA Slash Anaconda 2018. Affordable R9 in disguise?

    I owned the 2008 Standard so I know what a long tenon looks like. I got a Custom Shop with a long tenon too. I couldn't stand the 2008 Standard because... well it played great, the neck was actually amazing but the chambered body made the guitar sound like a neutered LP to my ears. So I got rid...

    Gibson USA Slash Anaconda 2018. Affordable R9 in disguise?

    I didn't mean to rattle so many cages & to be honest, I needed to step away from this thread for a while because it got creepy & it weirded me out. Please understand, there's a lockdown right now & it's taking ages for things to arrive in the post (especially here) so I can't reasonably ruin a...

    Gibson USA Slash Anaconda 2018. Affordable R9 in disguise?

    We? lol wow... I wasn't aware that this was a courtroom, I thought it was a message forum. I'm not going to prove anything to you otherwise I'd be negotiating with a sinister form of blackmail, which would leave me feeling miserable & depressed. But if it helps you to believe I'm wrong, do...
