  1. I just got a new Epiphone 339 and it sounds great just the way it is...... no need to transform this one.
  2. I play a 50 watt Line6 Spyder III. I know Line6 stuff is not highly regarded in the realm of amps but I like it. I suggest you go out and try several different amps and pick the one that sounds the best for the money. Good Luck!

    My New Les Paul

    Thanks for the compliments. It was one of my better impulse decisions made under the diress of...............not being able to afford a Custom or a Reissue.
  4. My Iced Tea Traditional Plus.......I kinda wish I would have gotten a Light Burst but they were out of stock.
  5. GibSinCity- That is a beautiful Sparkle Custom.....uuuhhhhhhhhh! OP-The peacock Blue is cool but I agree that 4k is a lot of cash.......... just because its blue.
  6. I'd get someone on the phone and send it back. I just bought my Traditional from Guitar Center (same people as Musicians Friend I think) and it was perfect. You paid your hard earned money for a Pleked Gibson and it should play like one.....Dont settle for anything less. Another thought..........Perhaps they will let you exchange it in person at a local Guitar Center??? Best of luck to you.

    My New Les Paul

    Thanks everyone! I think I'm starting to get used to the fat 50's neck, its quite different than other necks that I have played. The 57' pickups have an incredible sound with nice thick harmonics. I've always wanted a 59' Reissue but never have been able to afford one..... But I think the top on my traditional is a nice consolation prize for a poor man like me.
  8. It's my first new Gibson.........ever! I was going to buy a Custom Shop Telecaster but ended up bringing this home.
  9. I buy from GC and usually have to make adjustments on what I buy. I actually prefer that they dont mess with it.
  10. Looks like a beaut. I'll bet she screams......HNGD!
  11. Awesome GoldTop lpfan. I love the soap bars... I'll bet they sound sweet. I originally wanted a GT but ended up getting my Amber Burst because none were available. Congrats.

    Very cool guitar. Congrats on the score.
  13. Hello John and Welcome. I dont know much about Casinos but I'm sure the friendly folks here can help. Good Luck!
  14. SCORE! Looks like a really nice one. Definitely a good catch.
  15. Here she is..... I found the guard in the case and put it back on.
  16. I finally found a Les Paul that I liked and that I could afford.... Yep, I ended up buying an Epiphone. I know that they are not as good as a Gibson in many ways but this guitar felt and sounded like it was built for me. After playing it for several hours, I know I made the right choice. Looks like I'm headed to the Epiphone forum for now. I'll be back when I get that Gibson LP Custom I've been saving for.
  17. I've played quite a few of the Zaks and they have all had great tone. (weight=tone)
  18. Nice choice justadennis. I like those plain tops but I need to save some money before I can get one. How about posting some pics of yours? Vintage tone can be had with modern amps. I tend to use my gain channel sparingly and a lot more reverb on my vintage tones. Modern amps are more flexible than ever for getting desired tones. I play a very cheap 30 watt solid state Marshall and when I mic it thru the PA it has the balls/flexibility of a vintage stack.
  19. Good point RotcanX. I also noticed that the solid (3piece) back of my Amberburst LP is a light colored wood that resembles Philippine Mahogany.
  20. I found a site that had some info on your serial #. http://www.guitardaterproject.org/epiphone.aspx "Guitar Info Your guitar was made at the Saein Plant, Korea/China September 2002 Production Number: 1278 Saein Musical Instrument Co.

Saein was presented the ‘The Best Quality Award of the Year’ by Gibson Epiphone USA in 1998 and 1999."
  21. Awesome guitar farbey. The quilt top looks like one of those really nice Koean AAAA ones. I've only had my Epiphone for about a week so I dont really have any info on the limited edition part but you are in the right place to get answers. Good luck.
  22. let it ride......stickers/labels in the F- hole have been around for hundreds of years, I think their cool. Just think how interesting the guitar will be in years to come with the original sticker intact. Its a very important part of that particular guitars identity.
  23. I'm sure I had an answer for this question but after reading all of the drama..........I forgot what I was going to say. LoL
  24. Beautiful guitar! The grain is stunning....... it kinda emits a Stradavarius type of vibe.
