So my friend never plays his Ephiphone les paul and he bought his for about 700 dollars he says. He told me he bought it when it first came out. I played it and it was pretty sweet, except the little rhythm/treble switch is broken. He told me i could get this fixed for about 15 bucks.

I am trading him my Wii, which I bought for 250 dollars, and 3 games(total of 100 dollars). Is this a good deal I'm getting? He will also include his case. The thing is, I never play my Wii (haven't played since I got it which was January 2008) and he never plays his guitar since he likes acoustic better and since he threw out his amp since it broke.

So is it worth it?

you don't play it, why keep it?

Which Epi though? Be sure that he actually paid that much for it consider you can get some for like $200. Find out what model it is first.

Excuse me... PS3>360

But anyway... why keep anything you're not using when you could trade for something you would use? Definitely check what kind of guitar it is. Look up the serial number to make sure it's the right model, and price. And try it out for a little, of course.

Maybe if the PS3 actually had some games to play on it.


Otherwise +1 to everything he said.

Just look on the back of the headstock. That's where the serial is on any guitar I've seen. Just type it into Google, that's how I found some information on my Blues Junior. One of the links there has to have some information.

EDIT: Typing the serial number into google will get you nothing. What you do is actually type something like, "Epiphone serial numbers" in there, and you'll be able to find a website that has everything decoded and find out when it was manufactured, and maybe the model and all of that. Depending on what kind of system Epiphone/Gibson has for their serials.

that is the serial number


Well it was made in...

"Gibson: Qingdao
The Gibson Qingdao Plant was opened in October 2002, Qingdao, China. It is the only plant run by Epiphone in Asia.Both acoustic and electric guitars are made here. The factory is dedicated to making Epiphone and only Epiphone guitars with the aim of producing higher quality guitars."

Other then that with out picks its hard to tell... Does it have anything else on the guitar like custom or so on...

Here's what you need to do. If you have a digital camera, take a picture of it, and give us a link to the picture. I would be able to tell you if it is worth it in about 2 seconds.

^True - or a thorough description of the guitar - If it has covers on the pickups, then its' a standard, and you're getting a pretty good deal. If its' open coils, and a pretty thin body, you're been given a Special, and that's a bit daylight robbery, and all points in between

That was really English sounding. Not saying that in a bad way, I just thought it was kind of interesting.


But anyway, yeah, pictures would make it easy for us to know.
