    I guess he will, I just put him on ignore as well... I feel like I might de-ignore him every once in a while because I laugh my @ss off with his Epiphobic posts but... I might as well not.

    You'll see there's a 'show ignored content' button at the bottom right of any page he posts on. You can click it to see what's going on, without having to mess with the ignore settings. But it's rarely worth the effort of a click!

    If we as a collective choose to ignore, the Forum troll will be no more.

    So meanwhile you've sold your poor Fake Epi prototype :hmm:


    You should search for a place where 'poor Gibson Copies' are "verboten"

    You would get much more love and understanding there...

    I just feel sorry for people who can't do basic luthier work on their guitars (or pay someone else to get it done).

    There's also a lot of selection bias going on with him.

    Buy a Gibson, has uneven frets, or a pot acting up, it's all OK, let's pay someone to fix that right up, since Gibbys are real quality guitars (TM).

    Buy an Epi with a problem, it's a piece of crap and not as good as a Gibson and everyone who owns one sucks as well. No need to fix anything etc.

    Sigh, I've done plenty of fretwork etc on various guitars and guess what? A LOT of guitars nowadays come with wonky frets or electronics, Gibson or no.

    Oh and for my 60.00 I got a 100% functional guitar----all I did was dust it off and tune it----plays and sounds great ---good action --good frets---- good tone........no LUTHIER needed.......

    Sorry folks really IMHO and experience the cheap guitars are a better choice ----clearly I have a fooking house fool of them ---but for the "hobbyist" or NON PRO its simple
    I can have 20 P.O.S. (in theory) guitars or I can have 1 or 2 NICE named Gibbos......
    ME I would MUCH rather play and experiment and learn all there is to learn about ALL the different weird and funky wirings and pups and knobs and styles/brands/models than be stuck with 1 (all be it lovely) say--- Gibson top end Less Paul that I would be making payments on and costs as much as a good used car............

    Keep your 2 Gibbos there my French Friend I will "play the field"

    Really nice looking start! I really like the pick guard on it. I never had playability issues with epiphones, just had to lower the action is all. I love my Gibson but I can't afford or justify (to my fiancé) about getting another one unless my music does take off and becomes my career...which would be a dream come true
