Yes it is entirely possible. Please don't put dots in it though.

sounds like it wouldn't be worth the money for a guitar that's not even past beginner standards. I wouldn't do it, but you could.

I didnt have anything planned out, and I didn't know **** about improvising, so it was like "OH SHI- SOLO TIME" so I kerry-kinged it.

Will cost LOTS however, Id guess at least the same price as the guitar (depending on what you go for) - considered saving the money you would spend on inlays towards a higher quality guitar?

Also, I love the way you rate sick puppies, rise against and sixx am on your profile

Why shouldn't I buy it? From reviews, people seem to love it.


There's no reason not to buy it. It's probably a fairly good guitar for the price -- and it looks nice definitely.

You will probably spend about half what it cost for the guitar (if not more) to get an inlay done, however. I would recommend you just do without the cosmetic preference until a few years from now when you make the step up to guitars worth at least $1000 USD, that's where you really start to buy 'professional' guitars.

Ah, thanks. I didn't think getting inlays would cost that much. I figured about $80 or so. Anyways, thanks for steering me clear of it.

Personally man if you cant buy the guitar the way you like it, dont buy it. its gunna cost you more money to have inlays put into it than the guitar is prolly worth, i mean actually worth not how much you paid. If i wanted a set up like that and in the price range i would go with this (http://www.guitarcenter.com/Epiphone-Les-Paul-Prophesy-EX-Electric-Guitar-104611124-i1386470.gc) granted you dont have to get it from guitar center but its worth looking at... It has the same specs as the one your looking at but has inlays, emg 81/80, and grover tuners. Yes it is a bit more money but you will save money by not having to put inlays in the guitar its self.

But this is just my opinion you must like the guitar you buy stock inorder to love it when you change/customize it...

if you want inlays just get those cheap vinyl inlays , and remove when you feel that you dont want them any more, they dont look half bad either http://shop.ebay.com/creative-cuts/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_dmd=2&_from=&_ipg=

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

Yeah, it would cost a lot more then that. Maybe if you just wanted dots, $80 would cover that portion of it. But then consider the neck has to be defretted, then inlayed, sanded flush, then re fretted, re leved, then the guitar has to be re setup. Your looking at a easy 200, most likely more then that.
