Epiphone Les paul

is an epiphone les paul standard a good buy?

Re: Epiphone Les paul

: is an epiphone les paul standard a good buy?

Epiphones are traditionally a 'good buy' any way you shake it. Epiphone was once a renowned COMPETITOR of Gibson, later absorbed into the parent company. I have an Epi Les Paul Custom Flame Top and it is a real nice piece. It looks gorgeous on stage and it plays as well as I need it to. If I were criticizing I would say the fret work is not as good as the same Gibson model. So to, the pick up switch is wimpier(easy to replace). I suspect that the pickups, too, are inferior, although I don't have a Gibson to compare to.
Thats my point. The same model Gibson STARTS at $2400. I got my Epiphone used, WITH the case for $450. If you cant afford the Gibson , get the Epiphone and dont look back. Make the few mods to the Epiphone required and smile all the way to the bank, meanwhile play happily along the way on your Epi LP.

Daughter's first guitar

My daughter wants a accoustic guitar. She's 15, played piano for 5 years and Oboe for 5 years. Can someone help me choose a nice guitar that she won't feel she needs to trade up anytime soon? She does not have large hands, if that makes a difference. Any help is greatly apreciated.

Re: Daughter's first guitar

Go on www.ebay.com and find a good deal on an Ovation guitar. One with electronics. They are small necked and sound great when amped. You can find an older one for under $300 with a case and she will have it 30 years from now. In fact I have 4 and love them all.
Good luck....

Buzzing fret noise

I own i Yamaha "EG 112" (Basicly just a cheap stratocaster)when ever i play (mainly thicker strings) the string seems to make a buzzing sound against the frets because it is rubbing. i have raised the bridge at the base and do not no what else to try? this is not a desperate problem it is only really notice able when it is played without amplication.

Re: Buzzing fret noise

You might need to either use lighter gauge strings or get a new "NUT" put on that is taller than the current one.

You could ask your local music shop about it.

Re: Buzzing fret noise

putfoil on the opposite side of your pickguard
heavy duty foil
it reduces noise
