  • Only An Epiphone Is Good Enough

    Have 6 in the collection (Dots, SGs, Les Pauls) and I really love 'em. The Empress has spoken. Here's mine:

        I think that they are excellent to just lean up against a door to hold it open. I also used one to keep some old burlap from blowing away in the yard a while back - it did a great job for 3 days and it even rained really hard one day. Anyway, it held it there until I could put it all in the proper receptacle for disposal.

          Per my handle, when MF blew out the Epiphone Black 1956 Goldtops I bought one and boy it was a real winner. Love it and still have it. I also collect 56 reissue guitars (just bought the Danelectro 56 guitar in white and bass in black from the MF sale). Unlike a lot of Epi's this guitar required no set up and had no issues. Great guitar.

          The Slash Goldtop Epi is nice as is my natural Casino.

            I too have had an epiphany that Epiphone's are mighty fine instruments indeed. Own two...

              Today is happy new first Epiphone ever day for me! I just called my landlady and she put it in my apartment after it arrived earlier this afternoon. In an hour I'll be probably having sex with it.

                An Epi was good enough for me..for a while. I had an Epi Elitist Lp Standard which was a very good guitar until I got a Hamer Studio Custom. I still, however kept the Epi as it had that great LP vibe. I then got an R8 for just a hair under $2K and, for me at least, it was "bye bye Epi"

                While I will likely never get an Epi again - I had their best and it paled in comparison to my Hamer & Gibson - I still think that their guitars are good enough for just about any player.

                  LOVE mine both of mine! Both are older, Korean-made jobbies, and both have upgraded pickups, tuners and nuts, but they rock me when the moment is right.

                      I have a Dot Studio that I just love. It's all mahogany so it's too dark sounding for jazz. But add overdrive to it and it just screams. It plays as well as my Gibson Les Paul. I even kept the stock pickups. But I switched the magnets to alnico 4. What a great guitar.

                        I've enjoyed them. The list below is from my inventory spreadsheet in chronological order. I think my biggest bang for the Epiphone buck so far has been my Epiphone worn '66 Wilshire. Its mini-hums aren't too bad sounding. But I'm also a fan of their Korina Vs

                          My first electric guitar was a MIK Epiphone LP std. Actually I've never been satisfied with it though it was better than me.
                          Recently I've been lucky, except for this MIK Sheraton I found in pawnshop that smoked all the five or six Gibson semihollows (335, satin 335, 339, cs336) I played, I also found a 03 MIK SG that has 1 piece body in another pawnshop.

                            This is the first time in a long time that I do not have an Epi in the stable, but I bet that situation doesn't last long.
