Buy an Epiphone?

EDIT: I also find this hard to believe. You can't tell me you prefer an Epi LP-100 over a Gibson LP.

Why is this a problem? It just means that you'll have to pay less for gear than someone who refuses to buy Epiphone because "It's just not as good as Gibson"

Epis are fine, Gibson is just like a brand name. You're paying for the name not so much the guitar with a Gibson.

Not a big problem. Epis cost less, and they have some really cool models that Gibson doesnt make, like the Futura series. But if you ever A/B a Gibson LP Custom and an Epi LP Custom thru a good amp, you may change your mind.

I believe him. After reading numerous posts it's clear to me that

Epiphone is better then Gibson

Agile is better then Fender Custom Shop

MIM Fender is better then Fender Custom Shop

etc...


read the posts

If you like an Epi better buy it. They certainly sound different and "better" is subjective - unless someone on a forum says it - then it's fact

If you already have three, why buy another one?

Buy something else.

I played a gibson custom shop les paul taht was 3,199 dollars at a music store.
Three things I liked over my Epi les paul custom:
Hollowed out body(could be an excuse to get an ultra )
Ebony fretboard(plays like a wet dream)
Pickups' clean tone.

But that's not 2600 dollars in difference. Not even close.

Usually I condone further interrogation of any given user about their rig but...is that really relevant?

sounds like he's looking at at least his 4th guitar.
all the same style.

was just going to offer a heads up to make sure he's got a home run in the amp department, so he can bring out the best in the guitars he already has.


also, this is was my 3rd chance in a row to ask this, just wanted to see what would happen

^haha ok. in my opinion, higher end epis are pretty sweet.

but there are so many brands out there, dont get stuck into mainstream.

if you're looking for something more, and i'm guessing you might be because you made this thread. check out customs too.
