what are the differences between both of these guitars? what makes the custom 600$ and the standard 430$?


Also, if you could answer this about amps. Is the MG50DFX good for the following:


Bedroom practicing, Joe Satriani type stuff, Classic Rock(Beatles, Thin Lizzy, Pink Floyd, Rush) and a little megadeth and metallica.
If you like Blues/Rock then add me as a friend. I need to talk to some Blues/Rock Musicians and need reccomendations.

The MG is good for nothing, and I will shun you if you ever touch that amp. And as for the guitars, dunno.

When will everybody agree on one amp and live happy?

MGs are Notoriously bad.. and well known for it.. I think the cleans arn't bad on it.. but distortion wise..... terrible.. I even heard horror stories about the reverb.. get something like a Valveking 112 or Vox Valvetronix if your set on Solide State amp.. I love my Vox

The Custom has gold hardware, and maybe a different kind of wood. People prefer the Custom over the Standard because it sounds better to them, but they're both good guitars. Epiphone right?

And the MG should be good for practicing. If it's just for practicing, I wouldn't get a 50 watt for practice. If you want a Marshall MG for practice, get like a 15 watt DFX.

There are a lot of better practice amps out there that aer cheaper though.

I think the difference with the Custom and Standard is firstly the Custom gets more 'special' finishes with extra binding and gold hardware and stuff, and also I've heard that Customs get inspected a bit more in quality control too and the wood used in them is the same type as the Standards but it's slightly better quality. I'm almost entirely certain all of the electronics and the basic build is the exact same though, I've never noticed a huge difference between them.


And the MGs suck. Solid State amps = not good.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Flawed statement, Solid state amps can be good with just the right EQ settings, not only that but there ARE some Solid State amps that are actually good straight up.

Agreed very much so.. I enjoyed playing some Solid States and dont see the big "Issue" with them.. I've heard a Tube Amp before I see little to no difference.. and Im not talking a small tube amp.. Im talking a Fender Twin Reverb sure it sounds like sex but I heard better cleans..

If you think there's no difference between solid states and tubes then you are seriously tone deaf.

But the problem with that though is that for the same money and less effort you can buy a tube amp that sounds better.

Solid States are just... pointless.

id stick to reliable amps and guitars and ones that sound great to YOU. who gives a crap will Joe Blow thinks sounds good.

and id contact Epiphone about any facts you cant find on their ste about those 2 guitars and NOT listen to what others THINK the difference is. for all you know, they might be confusing the facts.
