Probably an OK guitar. I like the 2 p-90 les paul specials.

@nearly everyone who posted in this threa:

incase you guys didn't notice (i think al is the only one who did), this is not one of those cruddy plywood pieces of junk. it's a different model with the misfortune of having the same name.

it's a completely different guitar with a mahogany body, set neck, 2 P-90 pickups etc.

so actually make sure you know which guitar you're talking about before you start the hatin' plz

It's still not a very good guitar. I've never played an Epiphone LP below a Standard which I've liked. The Standard on the other hand is a very good guitar, providing you can find a decent one.

so is this guitar any good ive also seen an ibanez rga32


It is a great deal, IMO

If it feels good to your hands
if it sounds good to your ears
if it looks good to your eyes
and if it fits your wallet
buy it !

it's all very well to say you've never played any epi LP 'below a standard' that you've liked, but have you actually played one of these?

i've played a few of them and the only thing that makes the model in general "below a standard" is the model name hierarchy. the quality is about the same, but it's more of a "bare-bones" type guitar. of course, that's a sweeping generalisation considering that the quality varies within the same model quite a lot with any guitar, as well as little differences you're likely to find from one individual guitar to another that you may like or dislike. but my point is, they are typically on the same sort of level as a les paul standard, quality-wise.

You can get a used Epiphone LP Standard for pennies. The mid 90s ones were considerably better as well. I've had two; both costing under £150.

i haven't tried the special but i tried the old '57 junior reissue a couple of years back and it was pretty nice for the money. it was, as you say, of similar quality to the standards, just stripped down a bit.

Don't get me wrong- I'm not saying it's an amazing guitar. But it's likely to be decent enough.

oh ok

washburn x50 pro is pretty good for the money (£350), it's hard to beat in the uk, but it does look a little more "metal", fir want of a better word.

yamaha has a new pacifica coming out with a bridge hum and neck p90... might also be worth a look...

http://www.gak.co.uk/en/washburn-x50-pro-quilted-caramel-burst/16889

it's a 'little bit' different to that epi, though, but pretty good value if you're just looking for a nice versatile guitar to do the job as opposed to something a bit more specific.

That's what happens when you don't click the link.... Anyways, I've never played this model. I tend to dislike most Epiphones. I HAVE played the Washburn X50, and it's a great value. Very solid guitar.

But what genre are you playing? Because we really can't help you pick a guitar that fits your needs if we don't know what you need it for.

The Washburn could definitely pull those off, but I'm pretty sure that a MIM HSS strat would be a better fit.
#39
maybe...

MIMs aren't all that great value here, though. I mean you can get an MIJ tokai gs100 (basically a strat copy with a strangely-shaped scratchplate and gotoh/wilkinson vs100 trem) for £350 or so... if anything the MIMs are normally more than that.

though the ones that i've seen for sale were only the SSS model (they do an HSS model, just I've never seen it )... I'd agree with you that HSS is better for what he wants, not sure how the tokai is routed. On the more vintage-style copies they're SSS-routed, so I wouldn't want to be sure it's already routed for a bridge hum like a lot of the fenders are...

if it is, though, that's what i'd go with- stick a tonerider or irongear hum in the bridge and you'll have a great guitar for well under £400.

It's probably a decent guitar, but how come it says there's only one tone and volume knob in the specs, but there are two in the picture?
