  1. Oh, how I would love to be able to afford one of those! The red glitter one has got to be one of the best looking guitars I have ever seen. Ah, one day...
  2. I suppose you could say my 'dream upgrade' is more of a modification, but I would really like to put a Midi XY Touchpad below the bridge on my LP. It would be great for controlling something like a Digitech Whammy or a Kaoss Pad. My favourite guitarist is Matt Bellamy, and he can get some amazing sounds out of the Touchpad on his custom Manson guitars. But, alas, the price would probably be a bit much, and I'm not sure I'd have the guts to cut a hole in my guitar...
  3. Sorry to bump this thread again, but based on THIS picture, do you reckon it'll fit onto the Epi? Like I said, I'm not sure of the measurements of the Epi bridges, so any help is appreciated! Thanks!
  4. Brian, the Genesis on the right looks like its missing strings and hardware. Does this affect playability?
  5. Thanks, Shartom, but my local guitar shop isn't all that friendly, unfortunately, so I doubt they would let me try it out, even if they did have any in stock. Wardog, I really like the look of that Les Trem. Do you know if that one fits onto an Epi? And do Stewmac even ship to the UK (without having to pay realllllly big prices)? One other thing, do all Epi Les Pauls have the same measurements when it comes to bridge and tailpiece? If so, does anyone know what they are?
  6. Hey guys, I haven't posted in a while so here goes! I'm thinking about getting a tremolo arm for my Epi Les Paul Studio, but don't like the idea of drilling holes in it to fit a Bigsby. So instead I've decided to go with one of the ones that just fit onto the existing bridge posts. I quite like this one: http://www.thomann.de/gb/schaller_lp_tremolo.htm Trouble is, I don't have a clue what the measurements of the bridge on my Epi are. Does anybody know if this will fit? Also, are these trems any good? Thanks in advance for any help! Al
  7. I've tried a couple of different brands, but I always go back to Ernie Ball Super Slinkys. They have great tone...
  8. Sorry, but it needed to be quoted again. It just needed to be. One beautiful guitar you got there, CB.
  9. Yeah, I agree with CB. It's not that I don't like the Epiphone headstock (in fact it's actually pretty cool), but the Gibson headstock just looks more authentic. After all, the Les Pauls and SGs are Gibson clones, so why not have the Gibson headtsock too? I think a limited run of Epis with the Gibson headstock would be great (although would probably be way over priced). But I guess everyone just sees it differently...
  10. Man, I hate it when the Epi forum goes off. It's like somethings missing from my life...
  11. Those are two seriously nice guitars. And, I think I actually prefer the finish on the new one. Very nice!
  12. Yeah the angle is slightly smaller on the Epiphones, and I think that may make a very slight different in sound. I'm not sure on this, but I think the larger angle on the Gibsons help with sustain. But I'm just guessing here...
  13. Erm... In an attempt to make this guitar related... nope, I can't think of a way to make this guitar related.
  14. I am guilty of constantly changing my sound. Maybe it's because I use a modelling amp, but even when I find a tone I really like, I can't help but change a few settings here and there. Alas, I usually end up losing the sound I liked in the first place and wind up back at square one...
