Hi all,

Iv just looking at some Epi LPs, i was going to buy an LP standard for £299 but then i found the the LP 100-Bolt on neck.

Same body material, same neck material, but can anyone tell me what the advantage is of having a bolt on neck, the point of having ect?

Also im guessing the pups are cheaper, basically im just looking for reasons why its £110 cheaper.

Thanks

if the neck snaps or warps or gets damaged, stick a new one on really.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

lp -100 is more of a toy.

Bolt on means less sustain. And if you are looking for the "true" Les Paul sound, you won't get it with a bolt-on.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

epiphone's aren't toys, the LP-100 isn't bad if you're on a budget with a pickup swap, better than the Ibanez Rg3** series or so, in my opinion, it was my first guitar, and it still isn't bad in my opinion, bolt on necks aren't bad, less sustain though

A well done wood to wood bolt on will usually sound as good/better than a glue smothered glue in. Sustain wont be an issue either.

If your really anal about tone, you can hear less of a mid range 'growl' in a bolt on, with more highs. This primarily affects basses, from what I have seen.

I personally took to sanding the finish out of my neck pockets, thus gaining tone. I am VERY particular about tone.
