Getting the white g-400, does the paint Epiphone uses yellow? And when does it happen? Is there something you can buy to prevent that?
#2
laquer does, not sure about the polyurethane finishes that cheap guitars have.

Hopefully it will not. I had a Les Paul Studio years ago that actually turned pinkish due to the pink lining in the case - my white CS SG shaped with a white lined case from Gibson's CS - not sure if the tinting was happening to other's guitars as well.

The smoke and enviroment will yellow them as well.

Today they have much better finishes and this should not be a problem.

Older Fenders and Some Gibsons used a Nitrocellulose finish which would yellow overtime.

Most modern guitars, including your Epiphone use different lacquers and enamels as a finish which don't yellow with age.

Probably, I can't confirm or deny it.

I've heard of Gibson guitars using a Nitros lacquer but I didn't know whether they all do so to prevent a much larger misconception, I said "some."

I know low end Epiphones, like most manufactures use a cheaper polyurethane finish.

I suppose the G-400 is low end (299-350 USD) but I've read reviews and people don't seem to have problems... So I guess we'll see from there.

yellow is a verb now?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

yup - both a transitive and intransitive verb

From American Heritage dictionary:

"To make or become yellow: documents that had been yellowed by age; clouds that yellow in the evening light."

I don't know about you, but I LOVE the yellowed Strats.


+1, and the yellowed SGs. I think it's kinda disappointing that the new finishes stay white. Kinda takes away some character :stickpoke

Haha, im wanting a G-400. And White is my first choice. Or unfinished ebony. Played about four yesterday. Or just skip both and get a prophecy. But i really don't know the answer to your question, i would guess no, cause of modern paints.
#17
The only reason i would buy a white guitar would be to see that finish yellow
it looks awesome.

I've only seen pictures, not in a store or anything, maybe if it does happen I'll like the color. And I was pretty sure someone was going to ask about yellow being a verb, otherwise the topic makes no sense.

It wouldn't happen for quite a while but before you know it, BAM! You have a killer guitar.
