I was recently contacted by a friend who would like to sell me his les paul but I am not too knowledgable on guitars because I have only been playing guitar for 1 & a half, currently have a beginner Ibanez GRG170 and a practice Marshall MG15DFX 15-Watt amp. And I am starting to notice how bad my guitar is compare to others so I was thinking maybe I should buy it?
Here is his msg:
"""""""""i have a limited edition epiphone Les paul for sale
it has a transparent black finish on top of flamed maple (i can send pics upon request), rosewood fingerboard, mahogony body
i have done many upgrades to this guitar
-it has seymour duncan pickups (jazz neck and Jb bridge)
-i installed a coil splitter
-it has a roller bridge, which increases string life and sustain
-it also has dunlop button strap locks (the kind where you can quickly plug your strap in and out, EXTREMELY convienient)
-this guitar will COME WITH a hardshell case and also a luxurious levys black suede leather strap (very comfy on the shoulders)
there are a few electronic issues with this guitar which is why im only selling it for $500, there is a scratchy pot and also one of the volume pots, can not be muted, basically if you turn the volume of the bridge pickup all the way down you will still hear it. These are quick and easy fixes, all you have to do is replace the pots, everything else is pretty much mint"""""""""""
Sorry for the long read, but if you can help me out, and give me any advice I would much appreciate it
