Both going through a Marshall Valve Amp.


I mostly play punk rock, rock, metal maybe pop open chords? I've got an LP Junior and I like it but I can't help but feel this guitar is designed to play fast?

Which guitar do people think is better and why

Les Paul Junior Epiphone (I installed a P90 fat cat so it's got the good pick up in it)
KH 202 standard

I'm sorry ... are you looking to buy a new upgraded guitar over the epiphone and that's why the ESP or is this more like a general knowledge thing?

KH202 probably has a fast(er) neck, but it has a Floyd rose. Do you need the use of a trem?
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

the LTD has a flatter neck radius but not by much, so low action is probably non-issue on the les paul too.

But the main advantage is the much easier higher fret access, so playing metal would probably be more suitable.

It also has a neck pickup, which I notice the les paul junior doesn't, based on product info. That to me easily makes the LTD a much better choice due to versatility.

If the epiphone doesn't have a 'les paul' label on it, it probably wouldn't be worth anything at all.

Looking to sell my current guitar and get an Epiphone. Since I have such a great response with the P-90 tone knob on my Epiphone LP junior though I've completly gone off the idea of two picks ups. I want one on the bridge extremely receptive to the tone knob which is what I have with a Epiphone Les Paul and P-90 fat cat pick up.

I am not sure what you mean by low action ? I have very low action on the LP and that's what I preference...

Also we going to get weird now. I must of looked at 200 LTD ESP's last night they ALL have the volume knob RIGHT under the bridge pick up .

Does it cost money to move this?

I'll post a video soon basically the P90 pick up...just one has great versatility which I control with a tone knob..I can make it sound like a bridge pick up and I don't want a bridge pick up.

Hard volume knobs cut my hands, badly lol basically I know right under the bridge pick up like it is on the ESP my fingers will get dee-stroyed. If I gave them an extra $200 would they move the volume knob on an ESP to where it sits on the LP aka out of the way?


I am looking at this...I've never had a ESP though wonder if the EMG gives enough versatility I'd probably need to put a better pick up in? EMG 85?

well i would tell you if do not want the bridge pickup, well then do what most of us do ... don't use it. but since you don't need the volume knobs, the simplest solution would be to remove them altogether. on an ESP like the KH-202 there are two of them, so basically you will be left with two nice holes in there.
guess a decent guitar shop should be able to do that and even maybe patch up the holes. but changing the position of the knobs on the body will require digging in to the body and i am not sure as to why someone would want to go through all that trouble.
PLUS i guarantee you you do that on a new LTD or for that matter any other guitar you will nullify your warranty.
