I bought this Les Paul, awesome instrument
Should've gotten the Epi for half the price, just sayin...
Tell how much I paid gor this Gibson ...
Sometimes "Only a Gibson is good enuff"
^ my comment was only directed at this specific poster. I love meself a Gibson and an Epi.
Maybe he didn't want a plastic coated guitar?
Maybe you're not aware that this poster has gone around bashing everybody's Epiphones. I am not knocking the guitar, I am just making a comment similar to the ones he has made to scores of other posters who have bought Epis. I like Epis. I like Gibsons.
I paid 750 US$, incredible Gibson, a pure Gibson. The 490T humbucker is not the best ... Only bad point.
I played one of them a while back and loved it.
Too bad I can't justify (or even afford) another guitar.
I haven't been happy with Gibson's recent humbucking pickups so much. I don't consider throwing in a pair of quality Duncan, Lollar or other pickups to be a big deal.
This is a great Gibson, only one bad point, 490T bridge pickup is not very good.
- Buffing finish
- Blank '59 repro truss rod cover
- Black plastics and 5 ply pickguard (Gibson)
- Historic switch tip and black poker chip
- Nickel metal jack plate
- Amber knobs (Philadelphia LT)
- Gibson ABR-1 bridge
They look incredible value and a fantastic base for modding, that's for sure.
But then he could have gotten a Chibson for half the price of an Epi.
But then he could have gotten a good steak dinner for two for half the price of a Chibson.
What are you going to replace it with?
Or bought a box of poptarts for half of that
The top does look rather yellow... The Epis have a beautiful gold finish.
Could've gotten one of these for similar money; a 57 Elitist goldtop - fantastic guitar.
