Am I wasting my time/money on one?
If Im Honest...Yes
Haha, thanks, how bad are they then?
I don't know why people bash Epiphone. I have three including a Les Paul. They have never let me down. I have replaced the pickups in my SG to get the sound that I want, but, you're likely to do that on any guitar. Stop worrying about name brands and pick one that plays and sounds like you want it to.
I know a guy that's selling an Epiphone les paul standard but im not sure how much for, but im gonna look into.
^^ît's not the problem in epiphone, the problem is it's a special, and it's a cheap guitar, so you can't expect much. i've heard that better epis are great for the money... i think standard will be fine...
the special is crap get an Agile if thats your budget an AL2000 or AL2500 from rondomusic.net
yeh since its so low in their model range you gonna have to expect it that its made of the ****tiest wood available to epiphone
I'm willing to spend up to £300, but before, I just didn't want to, so that's why I was thinking about a special. But like I said I know a guy that's selling a Epiphone LP standard so ill look into that
well dont forget if you do install emg's into your guitar your going to need an amp that isnt stale
