I have seen these around at stores for usually less than $200. I have been thinking about getting one because they are a cheaper way to get a guitar with humbuckers installed. I wanted to know what UG thinks of these, your advice is appreciated.
You must mean epiphone, and if you do they are good starter guitars and ive heard the les paul standards or the g-400s are good, but most people will tell you can do better for the money.
If you're talking about the ones from Circuit City and Best Buy, stay away they're made from plywood. There are a lot of decent starter guitars for about the same price or a little more that would be better buys.
