Is this a good guitar ?


plaintext

Recommended Posts

[biggrin] Hey guys, I found this guitar on Internet and I want to buy it ?

The special thing is the "Zebra" pairs of pickups... :-

 

Compared to other guitars, what is the class of it (beginner, medium, advance) ?

How much it cost for a brand new one ?

 

Find at:

Hi

 

and welcome here.

 

First' date=' there is no real Custom Shop at Epiphone!

The Limited runs are called 'custom'

I don't believe that the value of this guitar will raise in future, cause there were only 500 made.

SG-Special seems to have a bolt-on neck, I'm not sure.

 

for about 10 bucks more you can get a new one with warranty!

yepp, and the one in this link is a much better guitar anyway.

 

Its standard not a special, like the original poster shows.

Any special function on the "White & Black" humbucker pickups ?

Or just for better looking ?

Just look better... or that's all that has ever been proven about 'em... people have been claiming things ever since someone first ripped the covers off of a PAF...

 

 

If you really want zebras, get a decent guitar and stick new pickups in it. If you don't know how, it's easy to learn... and a good experience to have... (although, if you should decide on something like a dot or sheraton, it's rather time consuming, because you'd have to pull all the pots through an f hole... so i'd suggest an sg or les paul for starters... or any other guitar with a removable plate behind the potentiometers...)

Yes, I confirmed this SG is made in CHINA. [blink]

According to all guys' words, I think it should be a guitar for beginner and it doesn't have any superior features. [blush]

 

Q: Is it worth to buy it USD $77.4179 in 2nd-hand price ?

 

[cool] Similar to a normal Epiphone Special: ->

plain-

Not really buddy... If I were you I'd get outta the "Special" arena altogether !(.02)!

Take your time, Save your bucks and keep a sharp eye out. I guarantee ya', If

you just poke around and under stuff, You'll run right into a good deal on a far

better situation and be so much better off to say the least... Again- .02

 

I cannot tell you what I gave for this MK, You and everybody on here would

be lookin' to strangle me! Patience and a little time...

I think it's pretty cool looking, plaintext ... then again, I have a real penchant for odd-ball looking guitars! Harmony Central player reviews on this model are pretty mixed (aren't they always on that site?) ... players seem to either love it or hate it. Major beefs seemed to be with the tuners and the fact that the trem system was only supported by two springs. Mayby this can be beefed up like you can with a Fender.

 

As for being better than an Epiphone SG Special ... well, that's really up to you, isn't it? Both are bolt-on neck, slim body guitars ... this Yammy will probably get a lot more "curious" looks than the much more traditional SG would.

 

Good luck with it!

 

Jim
