Has anyone played the 2020 Epiphone Les Paul Custom?
I'm gonna buy an ebony 2020 Les Paul Custom next month but I won't have the chance to play it before I buy it. It'll be my first Les Paul and I'm pretty excited about it. Ive owned an Epiphone Casino, an Epiphone SG G400, and an Epiphone Dot years ago. I wasn't really a fan of the Dot. The SG G400 was pretty good for a £300 guitar, and I loved the Casino. Really wanna buy a new one sometime soon. Has anyone here played the 2020 Epiphone Les Paul Custom? I think Epiphone make some great guitars. I've been playing a Gretsch G5422TG for a year now and it's been the only guitar I've owned throughout the lockdown. Fucking love it and I can't see myself ever parting with it. I'm hoping the Les Paul Custom will be good for stuff like 70s Aerosmith, 70s Kiss, The Rolling Stones, Thin Lizzy and UFO.
[NEWBIE] 2nd guitar, lost in low budget semi-hollowbody
Hey ! Newbie guitarist, playing since 2 month. I already own a Fender tele player and I'm planning on buying a semi-hollow but I'm quite lost. What I want: semi-hollow, warm/round sound, no bigsby of any kind, around 500$, available in red or black ;) I already know that the best way to decide is to try them but my town and towns around are really lacking of choice except for the Epiphone Dot but almost everything else in only available in order or out of my price range.So if any of you had recommandation on this list that would be amazing: -Ibanez AS73 -Gretsch G2622 -Epiphone 335 Dot -Epiphone Sheraton II -Epiphone 339 pro -Epiphone Casino thanks a lot !
Hi, I'm looking into buying an Epiphone semi-hollow (ES), but don't know what to choose. Originally I was thinking the Dot 335 (Pro maybe), but then I found the Sheraton and Casino. Any advice on which one I should get?
[QUESTION] Guitar for early Oasis sound on a budget
Hey Everyone, I would love to buy an electric guitar that would immitate the sound of early Oasis, specificly the albums DM, WTSMG, and BHN. From what i gathered the best answer would be Epiphone, maybe The Dot, maybe Casino (that's stretching the budget), or their Les Paul line, which i don't know anything about. What do you guys think?
[QUESTION] What guitar sounds bright like a strat but has no twang?
Hey guys, you have no clue how much I appreciate your help on this. I bought a reissue 50's strat and it's so bright- which I like. But it's got a LOT of twang. Do you know of any guitar that sounds bright like the strat I have, but does not have any twang? I've tried an epiphone dot, epiphone casino, but they're just not bright enough for me. Post note: if I cut the tone knob down to three on my strat it sounds great but you can tell the sustain of the notes are cut down because the knob pick up is set at a low level.
I'm thinking between 3 guitars witch are pretty much on the same level for me (gretsch electromatic g5230t ,epiphone casino and epiphone dot) can you give me some more reasons why choose one of these (no money problems)
[Gear] Need to find a versatile beater guitar for university!
So I'm heading off to uni soon. I'm definitely not taking my current guitars with me (Gibson custom shop SG and a 19 year old Fender strat). I'm looking for a guitar that is under 500€ that can sound like a strat, an SG and an acoustic at the same time. It sounds like an impossible task, and I do hope that it isn't. Right now I'm leaning towards the hollow body guitars that Epiphone makes. The dot seems nice. The 339 almost seems to fit my needs because it has coil tapping. I would consider the Epiphone wildkat because I have owned a les paul previously and really liked how it played. Seeing as it is a hollow body too I feel like it would also fit my sonic needs. The addition of the bigsby is nice too. My only worry with the wildkat is the following: someone told me that it is a limited run guitar. I want to buy a guitar that I'd be able to replace immediately if it were broken or stolen (this is a possibility given that I will be at uni). Because of that I'm not interested in limited-run guitars as it will be harder to replace these. Thoughts? Do you have any recommendations that I haven't thought of yet? Thanks
Guitar Q: What's the closest I can get to Nick's Epiphone Riviera?
I know he had his signature Riviera, but it's virtually impossible to get now. I was thinking of getting a Fender Starcaster (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/fender-starcaster-semi-hollowbody-electric-guitar), as it's one of the only semi-hollow bodies I really like and installing some P-94's. Has anyone else tried to replicate the sound with a different guitar like an Epiphone Dot, Gibson Sheraton II or something like that? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I just started a new job which pays significantly better than my last job did. Consequently I will finally get to scratch some itches that have been bugging me for a long time. One of those is a NGD. I've long wanted a semi-hollow body guitar - an ES-335 would be a dream guitar for me. The thing is that there's no way (even at the new wage) that I'm going to dump $3-4k into one. Heck, if I were to spend that kind of money on a guitar, it would say "Collings" on the headstock. That leaves me researching the sub $1k market. Really, I'd like to keep it below $700. So....... Recommend me some guitars, please. Who likes what in that ol' ES-335 style? Something for some raucous 70's rock.
I am looking to upgrade from a beginning guitar to one in the $400-$600 range. I'm looking for a hollow body or semi hollow body guitar with versatility. Specifically, I really like the jangly Beatles/Byrds type tone, but I also like a good classic rock tone for stuff like Foo Fighters and Boston. If anyone is familiar with the Gibson 335 played by Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, that seems like the kind of guitar I'm looking for. That one is just out of my price range though. So far, i have looked at buying and Epiphone Dot or an Epiphone Wildkat used and replacing the pickups with Gibson Burstbuckers. Would these guitars be good choices? Any other suggestions? Thanks
Hi, I’m looking to upgrade from my Epiphone Dot. I don’t really have any issues with the guitar, but I’d like something similar that feels less “cheap.” It’s definitely a nice guitar for the price, but I’d like one with better overall quality and feel. I still want a semi-hollow or hollowbody and prefer Epiphone so i’ve been looking at the Casino and Sheraton. My main question is if either of those Epiphones are much of an upgrade build-wise. The Sheraton is very similar and a couple hundred dollars more than the Dot, but is the quality better at all? I’ve read a lot of mixed reviews in that regard. Some seem to think it’s the same quality wise, but just has nicer cosmetics. I don’t want to waste my time and spend $200 more for fancier looking hardware, inlays, etc. What about the Casino? I know it’s not much, but is the quality any better for $200 more? The Elitist ’65 Casino is too expensive by the way. It’s not really possible to try the guitars in person due to location so I’d appreciate your opinions. Thanks for any help.
[DISCUSSION] What does your collection and/or wishlist look like? What should every guitarist have in their collection/wishlist?
I don't know if I'll ever be able to tick all of these off, but right now my wishlist is basically broken down into two parts; realistic, short-medium term guitar goals and a whole bunch of "in-the-event-of-financial-windfalls" dream/"fuck it let's go crazy" purchases. I'm not too interested in collecting a bunch of Strats just because they're really vintage; I want just about every guitar I buy in my life to serve its own unique purpose and have its own personality. But first, my collection;
Cort M600, sunburst, currently tuned to C standard. Pretty good for Kyuss, QOTSA and stoner rock in general (it even looks similar to Josh Homme's iconic Ovation Ultra GP). Not sure how it'd go for standard tuning songs cos I downtuned it the instant I got it and never tuned it back up. Haven't properly played it in several months due to both my main amp and a backup practice amp carking it (I plan on getting a Boss Katana 50 to go with the Squier Strat).
Yamaha F130. Needs to be restrung, but I'm too poor to buy strings and every time I try to restring it by following a guide I end up breaking the replacements so it sits unused in my room.
Yamaha C40. Currently my main guitar while my other two are out of action. Solid classical guitar, can't say much else about it.
Now, onto the wishlist. Part A:
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Stratocaster
Epiphone Les Paul 100
Squier Affinity Jazz Bass (or equivalent/better)
SquieFender Telecaster in butterscotch blonde or sunburst
SquieFender Jazzmaster in sea foam/surf green or red
SquieFender Jaguar in tri-colour sunburst
SquieFender Mustang in vintage white with tortoiseshell pickguard
Fender Jazz Bass (to replace the Squier, depending on how I like Jazz basses)
Rickenbacker 330/335 in black (fat chance)
Hofner 500/1 Bass Guitar (AKA the Beatles Bass Guitar)
Something from Ibanez for dat classic Superstrat metal shredding tone
Yamaha Revstar in yellow
Twelve string acoustic/electric guitar
Martin/Maton/Cole Clark acoustic which will eventually replace my Yamaha F130
Thin acoustic guitar for easy travelling (e.g, Guild Songbird)
I played a Gretsch for the first time a couple months ago, can't remember what it was but it was bright red, lightweight and felt awesome to play so once I find out what it was I'll add it to the list
Parlor acoustic guitar
Microtonal guitar, because why not it's not like this list is crazy long enough as it is
TL;DR: Post your collections and wishlists. Give feedback and make suggestions for additional gear other users may want to consider adding to their collection/wishlist.
So I am looking to buy a new hollowbody for my birthday. I also figured its time to upgrade from my fender squire strat I've been playing on for the past 2 years. Currently im leaning towards in a Ibanez artcore but i don't know witch make or model i should get. I need something with versatility that can do Black Flag as well as soft acoustic pieces for under 600$. I'm decent at playing but i'm kind of a noob when it comes to gear so any help you guys could give me would be awesome. ty in advance :D
https://imgur.com/a/BNow94Y I finally ended the journey of customizing my 2016 Epiphone Dot, the guitar I love the most. The "upgrades" were the following: -Replaced stock Pickups with GFS Dream 180 set, also added Push-Pull pots for single coil tones, I find myself using the center position all the time in single coil mode. -Replaced Epiphone pickguard with a Gibson one and glued the "E" in it. -Replaced pickup rings with cream ones. -Replaced "Dot" truss rod with an Epiphone Casino's Truss Rod (Epiphone logo) . -Replaced plastic nut with a real cow bone nut. -Added ES-355 Sticker fret inlays (have been on since 2016 and are still looking new). -Hand painted the F-Holes myself to give it a nice F-Hole binding. -Replaced pickup selector tip with a cream one. -Replaced knobs with gold reflector knobs. -Took it to the best luthier in town and gave it a nice set up with a set of D' addario 13s. I now have completed my dream project and have a beast of a guitar for a student's budget :)
