  1. I am tremendously lucky to have this incredible 2004 Les Paul Custom from the LQ series, made by the legendary company Fujigen in Japan! This exquisite guitar was shipped to me from Osaka by a very kind seller who offered it back in January; I just happened to come across it at the right time. Enjoy some photos: https://ibb.co/x7FT8wH https://ibb.co/JB6T77Z https://ibb.co/Ks7JqdJ https://ibb.co/HV9QM2W https://ibb.co/k5B10gp https://ibb.co/9hLD9bc From what I’ve researched, the LQ series is a limited edition run from 2004-2007. What makes it distinct fr
  2. Thanks for your well wishes, I really haven't put it down since I started playing it! This isn't a limited run; those are fret inlay stickers 😏
  3. Thanks so much for checking my AJ45 out! I honestly didn't know there was any other Masterbilt headstock, this is what they look like in Canada. I know the 2020 onward Masterbilt and acoustic line has the new (or old?) Kalamazoo headstock. As for the parallelogram neck inlays, those are inlay stickers! 😄
  4. Thanks very much! It's my go to acoustic guitar. No, those are neck inlay stickers ☺️
  5. Thanks so much for checking out my post! I’m really glad you have nothing but positive things to say, especially as someone who also owns a Gibson J45. There really is something about this guitar’s short scale length and tone woods that brings out the very best for singer songwriters. I’ve noticed that it complements my voice wonderfully when I play it, and it resonates so well too without being overpowering. It’s just perfect. I appreciate all your well wishes! I’m having the time of my life playing this guitar 🎶
  6. A while ago, I mentioned on these forums that I was looking into getting an Epiphone AJ45. After the resounding support, my interest was definitely piqued. Now I’m in awe of my new AJ45! I think my beloved Texan is going to be sitting in its case for a while as the AJ45 has become my go-to acoustic. It’s simply an incredible guitar! I record with it, I do (virtual) gigs with it, and I somehow feel like an elevated singer-songwriter with it... There’s so many reasons why the AJ45 is amazing! All Solid Wood I was considering this guitar, a
  7. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and to share your thoughts! It’s wonderful that you appreciate Epiphone, with quite a collection yourself. And I totally understand where you’re coming from. But I stand behind my opinion. In fact, you’ve proved the point of my post: there’s always going to be someone who insists that Gibson is better–no matter how Epiphone manages to impress again and again, proving that thousands of dollars does not make a superior instrument. I am being very serious. I respectfully disagree that a Gibson is “just better and the feeling is a step up
  8. That's it. That's the whole entire post. 2020 is Epiphone's best model year yet. Anyone who seems surprised by this reality hasn't been paying attention to the amazing quality Epiphone has been steadily putting out . Especially over the past five years or so. This year we have all the incredible Les Pauls. Including the revamped Prophecy line. The Masterbilt Texan, along with the Frontier and Excellente models that were reissued. Same as the Coronet and the Wilshire. Now the latest Inspired By Gibson Electrics: ES-335s and Figured ES-335s and the Acoustics: Hummingbird, SJ-200, and t
  9. Epiphone has been phenomenal this year. Every single time they release something my jaw is on the floor. Everyone over at Epiphone needs a raise. For real. These acoustics are looking like the best offerings they've done so far. Add that to the Frontier and Excellente reissues they've done, and Epiphone is proving their unbeatable value again and again. Most of the videos available at this point don't really do the sound justice yet. Even from what I've heard, the Hummingbirds seem to sound the best. I literally just ordered a Masterbilt AJ45. Then the Inspired By Gibson J45 w
  10. My Texan was built in an Indonesian factory, so if the build of the AJ45 is anything like it, I'll already be very pleased! I enjoy the long scale neck. But I imagine the short scale neck on the slope shoulder dreadnaught makes it even more comfortable to play. That's always nice. Definitely a plus. Thank you so much for the detailed opinion of your AJ45. That's exactly what I was looking for. I don't mind the matte finish, but a pickguard swap would be in order. Everything you've said about the AJ45 makes me compelled to buy it. Your input is much appreciated!
  11. I think the new Hummingbird and Dove Pro (basically any guitar made post-2017) all have Pau Ferro fretboards. Unfortunately, they can look kind of ugly on some guitars due to their light brown wood colour as opposed to the darker rosewood shade that can almost look like ebony. I know what you're talking about because of the example of the limited edition Dove Pro in white, which is a gorgeous guitar, that sadly looks ugly thanks to the Pau Ferro fretboard and bridge. Same with the new Epi Standard Plustops, all stunning ...except for that damn Pau Ferro... However, CITES could be lifting
  12. Thank you very much! I haven't been able to put it down since I got it, so I hope that I'll keep enjoying it for many years to come!
  13. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// In my opinion, no guitar collection is complete without a Goldtop Les Paul! I’m extremely lucky to have this gorgeous Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro in Metallic Gold, one of the rarest finishes available. It’s an out of production model and I literally bought the last one left in Canada...on sale! Huge thank you to Long and McQuade for always being amazing in every way and to Walker and Williams for their phenomenal guitar straps. This is my third Epi guitar and honestly, I’ve never been prouder to play
  14. Hey, I'm so glad you're looking into the Prophecy GX!! I've had mine for a year now, a whole joyous year of playing and admiring this beautiful guitar. I wrote an in depth review about it here, in case you want to check it out. Bottom line, the quality and worksmanship on the Prophecy GX is astounding. It plays fantastic, it sounds amazing, and it looks stunning. Trust me, you will not go wrong with buying this guitar! The Prophecy GX is the finest Les Paul I own. Hope this helps and hope this guitar becomes a keeper for you!!
  15. I am absolutely loving my Prophecy since I've had it!!! Seriously, I can't put it down. It's become my go-to guitar. And speaking of which, the neck has really spoiled my hand...this is the most comfortable guitar that I have, and have ever played. Regarding the high frets, they are definitely playable. I find that as I go up the neck, it's as if it kind of molds to my hand y'know? Even if I have large hands (I'm tall, with long fingers...) I find that I can easily have grip and control. I never have to tense my wrists, even if I go up far; I think it's partly because the satin finish is j
