EDIT: New they are usually like......$500 actually.
GOOD BUY


Ehh actually you can check this out http://www.4sound.se/ProductDetails.aspx?m...rticleId=413726
so before you say anything, check out that i DONT live in USA, so the price in swedish kronor is that!!!!!

And the model you are talking about is the standard model not the custom model, get fact before saying stuff..
And if you order it from europe it cost about 600 euros, and thats the cheapest price... the euro stands in 9.95 kronor

why does everyone just keep saying good buy??
I havent said that i have a killer guitar, i just said that i got a good guitar for a cheap price ( in sweden)
and i said that i was going to chane the pickups to seymor duncan.
Im a beginner so this guitar is really good for me and the design is a killer i think, the next guitar im gonna get is a Epiphone zakk wylde model or a slash signature.
But for now im happy with this... tongue.gif

There is not a big diffrence between the custom epiphone and epiphone signature series. The Zakk or Slash Epiphone are custom epiphones with diffrent pickups and a few minor cosmetic changes like paintjob. Buying one of those as your next guitar would be like buying the same guitar once again in red...

The next step with a diffrence in quality and tone would be gibson standard Les Pauls.

actually i have looked at the gibson les paul studio model but i dont know.. The reason for the zakk model is that the neck isnt painted and thats nice to have against the hand.. If you dont want to use car wax on the neck rolleyes.gif
But i would agree with u and go for an gibson, im thinking a white les paul studio, but for now this is more than ican handle huh.gif

I think the Epi Les Paul Custom Black looks better than that Black beauty model, it has 2 humbuckers instead of three, and might be more comfortable to play unless you really need the versatility of 3 humbuckers.

The Epi LP Elitist is pretty close in price to a Gibson Lp Studio, so if you are willing to spend so much on an epiphone maybe you should consider a Gibson LP Studio.

Good luck whatever you choose!


ya,thats what i thought to

I have an Ibanez RG370DX and I love it! It is the easiest playing guitar I have ever picked up. I don't want to put it down.
It stays in tune really well and the stock pickups sound good. I have had two different friends of mine that play Jackson soloists pick up my guitar, play it for about 20 minutes and go out an buy an Ibanez. One of the guy even has active EMG 81/85s in his Jackson and was astonished that he could get pinch harmonics easier out of the stock Ibanez pickups. I would definitely go play the Ibanez and see if you like it as much as I do.
