there's lots. obviously the price is different for a reason. look them up and compare the finishes, hardware, woods, etc.
Gibson SG Standard + 18volt EMG-81 & 85
Mesa/Boogie Mark IV + Recto 2x12
Keeley Modded BD-2
Vox V847a

yes, gibson is made out of different materials, better hardware, electronics, etc.
That is why gibson will cost more. Epiphones are great for the $ though.
top axes:
Taylor GS8
Fender American Strat (w/DiMarzio pickups)
Epiphone Les Paul

Guess.

Now for the non harsh part, Epiphone is nowhere near as good as Gibson because they mainly target the lower end of the market.

You're asking if there's any difference between a gibson lp custom and an epiphone lp custom?

well, epiphone has much better QC than gibson.

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Absolutely no difference whatsoever.
They both don't exist. ::type




Gibsons are pure shit, they're made of plywood and don't even have real pickups. Just sponges with silver paint on them and a small spanish man named Pepé inside squealing.

hh thats not true dude, ive seen plenty of bad epis in shops, its just that noone mentions it because they expect cheaper guitars to have not so great QC.

As for the difference, the Gibson has better wood, pups, electronics and build quality, and will probably last a whole lot longer.
