  1. Thank you all for your responses. I really appreciate getting feedback from voices of experience. It looks like the local music stores all carry Levy's plus at least one other brand. I will leave it up to my son to choose what he feels comfortable with. Thanks again. If you haven't yet seen the mural on the Levy's building it is worth a look.

  2. My teenage son bought (with a little help) an Epiphone Les Paul Special II guitar package. He has had it about 10 days. One of the holes in the strap where it attaches to the guitar has ripped already. I don't believe that he has abused it. Does anyone have a recommendation on a quality replacement strap? Thanks for any help.
  3. First, a thank you to pcollen for the helpful information on the amp. Secondly, a humble apology to Epiphone. In a newbies's haste to get playing we were looking for a paper manual for the amp. If we had taken the time to review the included DVD we would have seen that a complete instructional section on the amp was included. If all else fails read the directions, or in modern life, view the DVD! P.S. my son thinks the guitar is awesome.
  4. I just purchased an Epiphone Les Paul Special II Electric Guitar and Amp Pack for my son. This is the first guitar in the family. The pack comes with a Stuio 15R amp. No instruction manual for the amp came with the pack. Since this is a set intended for beginners, shouldn't there be something in the way of an operators manual? This probably sounds stupid to the experienced guitarist, but how does a beginner know what a high vs. low input is? As well as the other controls. I hope in the future that Epiphone takes this into consideration when putting a package together for the beginner.
