  1. Hello I bought a Epiphone Lucille. I want to upgrade the pickups. The stock ones arent bad but still have that dull and bassy sound to it that Epiphone pickups seem to have. I will play stuff like The Cure, Foo Fighters, Rush, Steely Dan. I will play Jazz and Blues too. I want a pickup that has good definition, string clarity, warm, and sustain and is good for cleans and gain, and some light high gain. Not metal gain. I will get a Les Paul for more high gain and super heavy distortion. Which would be better? The 490's or the 57 classics? I want to be able to play Jazz too.
  2. Hello I want to buy a Gibson Les Paul. I played a Tribute and it was ok. They are priced 1,199 dollars. I dont like the finish on it. I dont think they are worth it for the price new. I saw the studios but if I save up more money, I could get a Les Paul Classic for not much more. How are Epiphones? I dont really like Epiphone Les Pauls but is the Les Paul Custom any good? Worth 679 dollars? What are some opinions?
  3. Hello, Saw that they sell Gibson 335 studios for about 1,999 dollars. Are they worth it? Or is it better to buy a used regular 335 or save up for a new one?
  4. They have a return policy but now sure how it works for that. Oh ok, so you saw it too. Did you play it? So better to look for a mint one if I am going to pay 2400 dollars? Ok. I wonder if the store is willing to sell the guitar for 1800 dollars.
  5. I like it but I am worried that if any things need to be adjusted with the nut and or strings, intonation, that the bridge glued into place will cause problems. I dont know if the bridge is even aligned correctly.
  6. I want to buy a Gibson Chet Atkins country Gentleman. I found one at Sam Ash. It is 2,499.99 dollars. I has these changes and damages: tuning keys tightened too much and finish is cracked around the keys. The bigsby arm was changed from the flat bar type to the wire type. The truss rod cover with the Chet Atkins name has been changed to a blank cover. The bridge is glued to the body. Belt buckle rash on the back. Various damages and nicks. Ive seen the guitar in person. https://reverb.com/item/28664298-gibson-chet-atkins-country-gentleman Is this worth buying? Should I look for one not changed so much?
  7. Hello, I am trying to buy a Les Paul. The cheaper one I can get is the Les Paul 2018 Tribute. Its new so its still 1,199 dollars. But I do not like how light weight it is and it is kind of ugly without the binding. I do not like the feel of the neck but its on the cheaper end. I looked at the Les Paul Studio, new, but again no binding is making me think not to buy. Right now Guitar Center has the Epiphone Les Paul Pro III on sale for 299 dollar. I am temped but never really liked Epiphone Les Pauls. Used is not really a option right now. Which one of these is a good choice? Is it worth buying the Epiphone even with having to upgrade the electronics?
  8. None, my guitar is overseas. Its a Jazzmaster.
  9. I will use mine more for rock than other stuff.
  10. Thanks, I like all of them, its which one to try first. The amp I have is at home, so cant try out the guitars with it before I buy.
  11. Hello, Will changing out the switches, pots and pick ups in a Epi Lucille make a noticeable sound difference?
  12. Hello I have a Mesa Rec o veb 25. I want to buy a guitar. I am looking at the Gibson 50's Les Paul new model, the Les Paul Classic 2019 model, the new Les Paul Junior Double Cut, Epiphone Lucille, Fender Nashville Tele Deluxe. I am going to play music in the styles of The Cure, Foo Fighters, Sound Garden. I can buy one guitar, a Les Paul Classic 2019 and buy a 2nd guitar in couple of months, or buy a Les Paul Junior Double cut and the Epiphone Lucille or the Epiphone Lucille and the Fender Nashville Tele Deluxe or do credit stuff and get a Gibson 50's Les Paul and buy another guitar in a couple of months. Which combos or single would be best to get? Is it worth buying a Les Paul Classic 2019 with the circut board wiring and quick connect pickups? Please give opinions.
  13. Hello What’s the difference between the Les Paul Tribute and the Les Paul Studio Tribute?
  14. It looks like a small version of theGibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman
  15. I want to buy a Les Paul. I was thinking about the 2018 Tributes that are still around. Is this a good guitar or should I wait for the new 2019 Les Paul models coming out?
  16. Major Retailer, Didn’t check for glue on the fretboard. Played it some, it was good sounding. But didn’t check everywhere. So not worth buying?
  17. Are the 2018 Les Paul Tributes worth buying? I want to buy a Gibson Les Paul but don’t have lots of money. Looking the Tribute. Good guitar? How about the pickups? I am deciding between a Epiphone Lucille and the Tribute. I want both. Will play music type from The Cure to Sound Garden to Sade.
  18. Interested because only 1400 dollars But do t like the paint cracking and it’s new and the glue things.
  19. Hello I found a 335 for sale for 1400 dollars. Its new. Its the kind without neck binding, and has black body binding. Around the joint where the neck and body meet, the paint has aready cracked and there is a seam line. The dots on the fretboard have extra glue coming out on the edges. Are these bad signs of a not well made guitar? It sounds good when played.
