Having owned a Gibson and an Epiphone, I can tell you that Gibson pickups are substantially better. Whether you like them or not is entirely your own opinion, but they're 'good' pickups.

I would say you've already answered your own question lol.

Coming from someone who has played both I feel that ESP Eclipses don't feel like Les Pauls at all. As for sound, I've only played Eclipses with EMGs so I can't really give an accurate comparison as...

Shouldn't sound too different from a set-neck guitar, really. As for the back plate, I think as long as it has some sort of foil covering the inside, it should be OK. Don't quote me on that....

I guess I can't help you with most of your dilemma, but my best piece of advice would be don't worry about the age gap. Happiest couple I know, my great aunt and uncle, have 21 years between them.

That's a bang-on description of the situation.


Yeah, I think that's the plan. And I don't think dating one of her friends would be a good idea. That could get awkward very, very fast.
