  1. I was reading a lot of reviews of the current crop of Epiphone Firebirds and that the pickups are the same as the ones that go on the don't sound any different to G-400s which means that they sound the same as G-400s as opposed to the mini humbuckers that make Firebirds sound so different. My question is...... Can you fit Mini Humbuckers to a new Firebird or has the body been routed differently so that they won't fit? If this is possible, I would consider buying one.
  2. It's a Godin Radiator. Sounds kind of like a Telecaster. Amazing looks.
  3. Well, I finally got the "Family" together for a group photo. Good looking bunch.
  4. This is me (on bass) playing with my current band, The Selfless. Note the pampers box. :)
  5. Very nice! The seem to have become something of a rarety it seems. May bode well for the future.
  6. I must admit that I've always been puzzled as to why the Strat and the Les Paul have been seen as rivals. They are totally different guitars and sound completely different. The Les Paul is undoubtably got a warmer and sometimes heavier tone that suits a certain type of sound as does the Strat, which has a cleaner brighter tone. I own a 2003 American Deluxe Strat which is a seriously awesome guitar. But I think this new Epiphone is a seriously awesome guitar from it's own individual reasons. This is why I can have a lot of guitars because they are all different and unique. It all depands on what music you're playing and what sound you want. Hell, this is why we are addicted and love them so much.
  7. Hi Guys, Yesterday, I did something that I never thought I would do. I traded in my made in 2001 Mexico Fender Stratocaster for an Epiphone Les Paul Classic. I already knew that the Epiphones were quality as I already own a Casino in Vintage Sunburst, but I never thought I would trade in a Fender Stratocaster for an Epiphone. But I did, and boy I am i glad I did. It's an awesome guitar! Exposed humbuckers and in Heritage cherry sunburst, an astonishing guitar. If Gibson make them better than this, then i don't believe it. The big question is: It isn't featured in the current lineup of Epihones on the website and even finding a review on it was difficult. The only one I could find was this one: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/electric_guitars/epiphone/les_paul_classic/index.html It seems to be something of a rarety. Here is a picture of it: Can someone out there please tell me more about my wonderful new Guitar? Was it part of a limited production run? Any help is appreciate.
  8. Thanks Guys. Much appreciated. As requested, a picture of my beautiful G400 in Cherry. I also have a 2000 Fender Stratocaster Deluxe that I got for next to nothing on eBay.
  9. I'll have my Fender Stratocaster Deluxe first with my G400 as my backup. I will always love the Stratocaster first.
  10. I have a new G400 and I've noticed that the neck is slightly heavier than the body. Does anyone else have this problem?
  11. Here is my G400 that my wife got me for Christmas.
