Let's See Your Epiphones !

Recommended Posts

My current Epiphones:

 

2011 Casino, 2011 EB-0 bass (that I added some inlay stickers that were laying around, also took a sharpie to the edge of the pickguard to cover the white and replaced the reflector knobs with black bells), Valve Junior amp (got it for $49) and an MM30 mandolin. Picked up a 30 Watt Marshall Bass Combo to go with the new bass.

My first guitar: an Epiphone Ultra-339 in Pelham Blue

I've never played guitar before, so I'm excited to learn with such a beautiful machine. I had heard great reviews about how versatile this instrument is and how good the quality is. So the only question was, what finish? The sunburst is fantastic, but being inspired by Dave Grohl's ES-335, I had to go with the beautiful Pelham Blue.

Nice looking axe. Interesting that the only put an "f" hole on one side.

I took this pic of the Riviera P93's todaymsp_smile.gif and played all 3 for a whilemsp_love.gif. I replaced the bridge and saddles with a "roller bridge" on the wine red one. It stays in tune much longer with whammy use and string bends than with the "stock" bridge and the high E and B haven't broken (yet) as well as the other strings too.msp_smile.gifmsp_thumbup.gif

I dont think I have seen any Epi Ultra’s so here is one.

I picked it up 4/1/2014 used thru GC but it is like new.

Come to find out it is a Ultra II, wanted a Ultra but that is OK

I have been using it thru a Ibanez A/E 15 watt amp till I can get the dollars for a better one.

I have just started to learn guitar, Nov 2013 and having fun doing so.

Thanks

I am new to guitar playing. The Washburn on the left is my first and the Wildkat on the right is my second. I am having a great time learning to play and have been asking myself why I didn't give this a try when I was younger.

Nice amp stand. Mustang II, version 1 ? I don't have an amp stand. msp_sleep.gifmsp_laugh.gifcool.gif

 

Whats that thing hanging off of the lh side of the amp ? A foot switch of some sort ? What other things are attached (out of the picture) besides the computer which controls the amp ?

 

Green belt ? What school ? Does Sensi know you are using your belt as an "amp cushion" ? lolmsp_laugh.gifunsure.gif

Fender Mustang amp owners, if you haven't done this already, you should plug your smartphone into the AUX IN, and play Youtube backing tracks through the amp. They make practicing leads and jamming lots of fun. It's a great way to improve your skills. Just youtube search "blues backing track" "rock backing track", and there's tons of great ones to pick. I have a custom playlist with all my favorites saved.

Yes, it's an M2v1. I have the USB connection from the amp to my laptop, an aux cable for my phone, a footswitch, and a set of headphones hanging from the back LH side. And no, my sensei doesn't know about my cushion :) I'm really using it to prop the amp up an inch or so because the power cable was getting in the way of the amp being centered on the stand. It's a permanently temporary solution right now.

that's how it would look without PG and with black plastics.....

That does look sweet [thumbup]

I have tossed it around of replacing the PG & plastic with black but for now I am going to enjoy it as is. Maybe in a year or two I will look more into it. Then again I may look into a 339 by that time [rolleyes]

Guys -- this is by far the most FUN thread I have ever read. I've been sitting here at my computer with I can't recall how many cups of java viewing this entire thread. Absolutely inspirational. Best early morning I've spent in quite awhile. Thanks!!!

 

Cheers

Wayne
