Got this baby a week ago and pretty much haven't put it down since. The 60's slim taper neck makes it very easy to play and with the series/parallel switching I can get a wide variety of tones out it. Sounds really good through my Vypr 75.

very nice
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Congrats on a cool looking guitar



the Tribute+ is (one of) the best 'bang for the bucks' guitar ever made by Epiphone

Thanks guys. After having it for a little while (and playing it every chance I get) I should change my user name to LPfan.

Not flashy, very classy.
Sturgeon's 2nd Law, a.k.a. Sturgeon's Revelation: “Ninety percent of everything is crap.”

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

I have one that looks IDENTICAL, except it is a standard...I have 57 gibson in the neck, and a 59 seymour duncan in the bridge, and it was made in 2007, and that's all the serial will tell me

sgfan,
I've been wanting a lp tribute for a while. Next time MF has them for 100.00 off I may pull the trigger.

Can you get a good telecaster sound out of it?

Thanks for compliments everyone! The pics don't really do it justice though, they were taken with the cell phone. It looks purtier in person.
cdr salamander: They call that color Midnight Sapphire. Loved it as soon as I saw it.

henry t: I can get a decent strat or tele sound out of it through the vypyr but I haven't tried it through a non modeling amp. There are some online demos on youtube that put it through its tonal paces that you might want to check out. You also might want to check out zzounds. They have pay as you play plans you might like.
