this is the situation:
i was looking online for a good online store that ships worlwide w/o shipping fees
found it
was looking for a guitar
saw the epiphone prohecy ex
fell in love with the looks
found out that no local store has them
asked gibson for a guitar with a similar neck- the answer is that the tony iommi sg has almost the same neck, a bit thicker
i went to a local store, tried a les paul to see if i like the shape- i did, and i like the heavy weight
checked the neck- felt its a bit too thick and i dont like the glue-like glossy finish
on the lp both are fixed
tried a jackson with emg's, the sound is pretty nice
so i thought i found a good guitar at a low price
i smiled
jsut to be sure i read the MF and GC user reviews
i smiled moar.
then i read the comments on the UG user reviews.
and i stopped smiling
so:
can i get a better guitar for 500 Euros?
i need something that can do blues rock and metal
i will probably buy a blackstar ht5 combo with it
since emg's arent good blues pups i thought i can sell them and with some extra $$ get bkp's
so what do you guys think?
thanks for reading my story and not having something better to do.

Seems like a pretty good guitar and the reviews say its awesome. If you don't mind the whole floyd rose package to. Apparently there is a model without Emgs, but i don't know what that is.

im talking about the epi LP not the jackson :\
i only tried it because it was the only one with emg's in the store :\
i hated its neck
and its costs more

If you're going bluesy, why won't a strat do? If you get a HSS you can cover all the basic tones you're looking for.

because i hate the volume knob position.
and i dont like the bolt on neck.
and the bridge.

It's your writing style that I don't like, but moreso the almost absolute paucity of grammar that exists within it.

I'm just looking at this uneven wall of text, and I don't want to read it, it looks like a pain in the ass.

EMG's are good blues pickups if you want to them to be. You're looking at a good amp, which is good. Just use clean settings, and there you go, blues. I mean, if you like the Jackson, then why would you not get it just because other people don't like it?

If you pick up a guitar and love it, and then read reviews by people who don't like it, will you not get it just because they wouldn't?

You need to have a mind of your own about these things.

well
first of all im not american or british so i dont care if something is wrong with my grammar
its good enough for me
and also since you didnt read my posts you would understand i dont like the jacksons neck and i will never buy it.
and its expensive.
so.....
yeah.
and its pretty confusing when some people write that emg's are metal only and some write that it can do blues :\

There's no good excuse for ignorance.

I read and understood that you didn't like the LP's necks. But I guess I was mistaken?

If you want people to understand and help you, then convey your post in a way that can be easily understood.


And again about the metal only thing - if you played it, then you should have been able to tell that it can do more than metal. Did you touch the amp at all?

and please forget about the jackson, i dont like it.
and i didnt say i tried the ht5, no local stores sell it
actually the epi and ht5 cant be found in my whole country
aint that just the best?
wait
by saying that i have bad grammar are you reffering to the thread title?
brcause its just to drag attention
like mcdonalds "im lovin' it"
actually i cant find anything wrong in the thread itself

Dude I can't help you because I don't know the guitar you're talking about and I'm not a very experience guitar player.

However if you're asking people some help you could at least do an effort and use a bit of ponctuation instead of allways spaming your enter key. And no people don't need to read your posts, they only do cause they feel like helping you. Keep that in mind !
