I have a friend who is wanting to sell his Epiphone Les Paul "Special II" (for rock band WTF) So I thought about buying it, I played it yesterday and its not too bad for a starter pack guitar.(GREAT SUSTAIN!!!) I've played bass for 3+ years and maybe a guitar can expand my musical knowledge. I might sand it down and paint a psychedelic design and slap some 10-56 nickel jazz strings on it. However, he hasn't decided on a price, and he's pretty stingy, so would it be worth it for say... $100+/-

They're 170 bucks brand new. I wouldn't give him a quarter of a penny for it, but 50 bucks sounds like a "fair price"....

I have one. It still gets play time too. Only because my standard's in my room and I don't feel like walking from the office to my room to go get it .

just do yourself a favor. Don't get new pickups for it. I put a DiMarzio Super Distortion in it thinking it'll improve the tone. It didn't.

Just goes to show you. New amp>pickups...sometimes.

Wrst_EDIT_Evr: I'd give him $100USD for it. But try and find one used at GC and tell him to go lower than that.

Well I did play it yesterday for about 45 minutes. The guy has barely touched it. It's basically brand new. He just decided he doesn't want it anymore, and finds Rock Band more appealing.

Edit: No I will not be putting in a pair of pups that'll cost as much as the guitar is worth just for a slight tonal difference. I will be playing it through my bass rig.

Try ripping him off, offering 85, 90, etc. until he accepts.

this is why this guy has no friends lol

but to not be a total waste of bandwidth i would say to offer him around 100 -110

I don't think a guitar through a bass amp will mess the amp up. I know a bass through a guitar amp will, though.

ugh, you're stupid. I've played guitars through my bass rig before and I find the cleans to be much deeper than on any guitar amp I've tried. Overdrive and Distortion also has a more heavy sound. There's plenty of guitarists that use bass amps.

Not to mention plenty of bassist who use pedals and octave effects, etc. through their bass amps...and guess what?

They still work.

What a loser...

Anyway, i'd say $100 would be a good price.

Also, how the hell is a guitar gonna f*ck up a bass amp? I know a bass can harm a guitar amp, but it doesnt work the other way around.

which 1?


I don't think you'll hear a difference between the SG and LP special II's but try them out and see which one feels better to you. I think they have the same scale length, pickups, and woods used.

Yeah hijacking is bad. As for the topic, 100 bucks sounds about right and playing it through your bass rig will make is sound much deeper than through an actual guitar amp (part of the reason I love playing my guitars through my cousins bass amp, so heavy sounding without the need for effects).
