7/10 Body is amazing! neck and headstock don't go as well with it ......... Darker Neck? different markers?

it would be awsome if the headstock was the same color! holy crap! and the pickups had covers the same color too! and the fret markers too!

im serious though
#7
i love it, looks like water. 9/10

only thing that could be better would be an ebony fretboard, strictly for the color, in which its perfect.
#8
yeah headstock doesn't quite fit with it

"smoother" or smaller looking fret inlays would be sweet too
id say like 6ish

Thanks for your input. Keep em coming.


What would you think about all black hardware, pickup rings, and all?

4/10 the top could be WAY better.

Overall though, i'd give it a 6/10.

Looks good for what it cost. 7, Id get a black stop bar and tunomatic with black pup rings and EMGs for looks.

or just black pick-up covers if you can't afford/don't want EMGs

That guitar looks amazing though. But like everyone else has said, I'd prefer a darker fretboard.

I actually thing some chrome tuning pegs would do it a world of good; just to go with all the other hardware
#14
3/10 looks like a nice finish, but a mis-match with the pickups, it needs silver covers to shine!

nice guitar, if you had an ebony fretboard and chrome tuners it would be really cool, also if it had the quilt on the headstock itd be better, abalone trapezoid inlays would be better too, looks very good for an Epi, i usually only like the Elitist series and a couple more but that is looks, you probably should change the pickups to Gibsons or Seymour Duncans, but i think it looks good with the black open coils

Thanks it's an Epiphone Les Paul Classic Quilt Top Limited Eddition most of the new ones have a pick guard. Mine came without one so no holes for one. To me thats a plus.

That's a nicer top than the ones I've seen on most recent Gibson Les Pauls, let alone Epiphones.
#19
An ebony fretboard would go well with it, and perhaps silver pickup covers.
However, the quilt itself is VERY cool.

The neck and the headstock are the same blue. I just can't picture the face of the headstock being blue. I guess thats just me.

6/10... looks too fake (the top)

How does quilted maple look fake? It's a thin veneer I know. But it is a quilted maple veneer.

yeah, the only thing I don't like is that the headstock is black. I'd give it an 8

looks ok, I bet it plays like ass though


Why would it? It's an all mahogany guitar with a maple top. From the Epi's I've played, they have quite comfortable necks as well.

Really, you seem to just make ass hole comments in every post I've seen of yours.

No Im no artist. It came that way. Its a quilted maple vereer over a maple top.

Actualy it played prteey sweet right out of the box. After I had it set up by a pro it plays as well as any guitar I have owned. It could use a bit of fret work in order to lower the stings to the floor without fret buzz, but I like it the way it is now.

I thought it was all Mahogany with a maple top and a quilted maple veneer. But I have come to realize that there is a bit of alder in the body too. So its most likely Mahogany, Alder,Maple cap,w/quilted maple veneer. But I have been told that in 98 when it was made some runs were all Mahogany, and the chances are like70 30 aginst me. But it plays and sounds good to me.

10 That's a dream maple top. I want the same one
Where did you get it? How much?

but you need black pickup rings and a black pickup switch thingamajig
and better tuners

but chrome hardware is cool
#37
You show off!

I can't give you a tech opinion since I'm but a n00blet on these matters, but it sure looks beautiful, even though I've seen ones that I liked better. 8/10.

All black hardware would look good... And lose those tuners. Fugly.
