[QUESTION] Can someone lay down the law on the new epiphone 'inspired by gibson' line? Anyone have one?
I'm in the market. Itchy feet. The new epiphone inspired by gibson line looks fantastic for the price. What is the actual difference in these products vs what they were pumping out 6+ months ago? What i'm realizing is that most of the line up, whether that be LP, semi hollow, etc all have the same pickups, mostly same hardware, everything. To me it just seems about what style/shape you want. Am I wrong in this? One caveat is that the new casino is p90, and the 335/339 are burstbucker style. I'm leaning towards one of these 3 as the first one I'll get. Really the casino vs 335. Anyone have one of these? I'm so torn as I can't play anything in person right now. Part of me says casino for 'beatles' and minimal vs 335, but the 335 will have less feedback, iconic style. FYI I'll mostly be playing at home and through multi fx/headphones or into computer. On acoustic side, I can't find any information on how the construction is for their j45/j200. Are the bodies scalloped? X Bracing? Again, how are they difference than what they were producing before?
So i have played that epiphone, and it looked realy cute, and sounded amazingly clear, i spent around 10 minutes enjoying this guitar, but i didnt have a 335 gibson to compare the two... what do you think?
Hello, I have been playing guitar for nearly a year now I can play all open chords + most bar chords and solos such as bohemian rhapsody. I am looking to upgrade my squire strat to either an epiphone les paul or epiphone casino. I like to try an play stuff like Oasis, The Who, Rolling Stones. Are there any other guitars within the same price range I should be considering.
[GEAR] Selling high end gear because you prefer your cheapest one
So I have that USA Gibson les Paul I bought used few years ago, and I was pretty cool with it until recently. I played an epiphone casino in a shop, made in China, worth maybe half the price of the Gibson. But i dont know, she really had a thing, so I took her back home. It's been some time now and I can say I really enjoy it far more than my Les Paul, at a point where I decided to sell the Gibson. I saw a lot of people on this sub wanting to upgrade, but I somewhat "downgraded" and I'm happier than ever with it ! Have you already had some similar experience where you ended up selling high end gear because you prefered some "cheaper" one ?
[QUESTION] Is Ibanez artcore series more bang for your buck then the epiphone semi/hollow body line?
Ive heard different things from different people but the most recurring statement i'm hearing is that the ibanez artcore series is really really well made for the price points they are at; compared to their contemporaries (Epiphone, Squier, etc) I know guitars differ person to person but for those of you who have both, or have had both, would you say that this is true? I want a Semi/hollow body guitar so im just weighing up my options. Im very interested in a Epiphone casino and ive heard great things about those.. Just curious to hear more firsthand stories about the ibanez line. Cheers
Hi everyone, In January of this year it was announced that there would be an Epiphone Casino produced here in America. As someone who is looking to purchase a hollow body electric, this was greatly appealing to me - true P90’s seem to be beloved and though the American model would definitely cost more, it’s a small price to pay in my mind for quality components. Are there any updates on this timeline? I’ve tried researching it on my own and come up with nothing other than articles from January when it was announced. Thanks in advance for any input!
I forgot what falling in love with a guitar felt like. (Long post) [Discussion]
I’m an aspiring, amateur songwriter and released an acoustic Folk album a few years back. Recently, I made some GarageBand demos of my latest crop of songs, but I felt they just didn’t translate to the acoustic and a friend suggested I try playing the songs with an electric instead. I didn’t think it would make much difference; playing guitar is playing guitar, right? No. No it is not. After getting past the initial intimidation and unfamiliarity I had with the feel and tone of different electrics—plus my discomfort and frustration figuring out pedals, apps, amps, and sims—I understand now that an acoustic guitar and an electric guitar may as well be from different planets. I’m fortunate enough to know a few good gear junkies who let me borrow guitars they weren’t using so I could decide which type I’d want to buy for myself. Ran through a couple Strats, an Epiphone Les Paul, SG, and Casino, a Deluxe Tele, Standard Tele, and a Schecter hollow-body. While each had something I liked, none of them quite satisfied me. I happened by a guitar store one day to do some more searching when I found what I’m fairly certain will be THE guitar for me for the rest of my life. The Squire Jazz Master. (J Mascis variety, to be exact). I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but for me they’re the tea, the leaf, the pot, the kettle, the boil, the brew, the pitcher, the jug...and whatever else you can associate with tea. I can’t put it into words, but holding it, playing it—even when I hit a wrong note—just FEELS SO DAMN AWESOME AND FUN AND COOL. I LOVE everything about this guitar, Shout out to Mr. Mascis for backing/designing such a wonderful instrument at a RIDICULOUSLY affordable price. It has brought me back to a love of not just playing and writing, but learning and practicing. Playing acoustic, I used to grind through my practice and warm-ups, desperately waiting for the timer to ring. But with this Jazz Master, I go through my paces with a giant, dorky grin plastered on my face the entire time. Then I let that dark, warm tone cradle and carry my creativity away into a gently eerie, dissonant, wobbly, soothing, sonic heaven.
So, I recently got myself a job and I want to buy a guitar since the one I have is getting old for me and I thought a new one would be a lot more better. But anyway, I got the idea to find a guitar online to buy. And first I wanted a Epiphone casino but that cost too much money so I saved that for another time. So I decided to settle with a Fender Mustang or Jaguar, I like the look and on reviews they sound cool. So I went on every guitar app/website and I found some good ones, until I stumbled across Sweatse.com, which has guitars but for very cheap. I'm talking like 50 dollars for a Fender Jaguar. So I was hoping if anyone had some Intel on this website so I can either buy or stay away from it. But other than that I'm still looking for the right price and I found a couple so yeah. Anyways thank you.
[Discussion] Les Paul and SG Custom owners, how useful do you find the middle pickup?
My main electric guitars are my 1990 MIJ Telecaster, my 1970 Epiphone Casino and my 1974 Gibson SG Standard, I got the SG 10 years ago and I love it but I have always wanted a 3 pickup SG or Les Paul. I have found a 76 SG Custom for a really nice price and I am tempted to purchase it, I have heard mixed things about the usefulness of the middle pickup, some say it's basically useless and on forums I have even seen people call it a hindrance because their pick always hits it. I'm just curious about your experience.
Last friday I bought my third guitar. I started working on a vintage/used guitar shop a couple weeks ago and this was hanging on the wall. Almost sold it to a costumer, but he didn't come back to get it, so I took it home. I fell in love with this semi-hollow! Features a varitone switch, bigsby tailpiece, golden hardware and a very comfortable neck! Also, got a gator hardcase along with it. I had no time at all to record a demo video or an audio clip, but will attach as soon as possible. Pics: http://imgur.com/a/frX0V Pretty, huh? EDIT: I promised to upload a demo but my cellphone got in some trouble. It's fixed now, so probably tonight I will attach an audio demo here.
I’ve been looking to buy an Epiphone Riviera Nick Valensi Signature for some time. I nearly got one from eBay a while back but just couldn’t afford to part with £700+. I’ve recently found an Epiphone Casino in Natural that is much more around my price range, and am wondering if it is possible to convert Dog-Ear P90’s to P94’s? I’m aware that P90’s have a much more shallow routed area, but I’m basically wanting to make a Casino look like his Riviera on the cheap(ish)! Any help/solutions would be appreciated! Thanks :)
[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 !
Hello Reddit, I wanted to get your opinion on something I am a bass player and blues afficionado (I am not a pro I play as a hobbie) I also enjoy ´playing guitar every now and then but I do not have an electric guitar just an acoustic and I been meaning to purchase an electric guitar, the one that stood out the most for me was the epiphone Lucille the price is within mi grasp and I like the reminder to not run into a burning building but this would be mi first electric guitar and I do not know if would be a good choice, I am sure many of you are more experienced than I am and can provide me some much needed advice, thanks a lot.
So as the title says I'm a beginner, like around about a year, and have only been playing acoustic guitar. I've got a chance to buy a Hagstrom Viking from a guy at work who is upgrading to something more, whatever that means. Anyways, it's a little over a year old and pretty much brand new and he's asking $400 for it, plus it's not everyday you find another lefty guitar player! I love the sound of a hollow body like this and it's versatility in music (big fan of jazz and blues), but I'm unsure if it's too much for a beginner. I haven't stepped up to an electric yet, but I think it might be the right step and time to pull the trigger, especially for the price. A Hagstrom viking as been on my radar for awhile, but i'm also loving the epiphone casino.
I bought this guitar about 7 years ago for about $325. It was his grandpas and after he passed away they wanted to get rid of some his extra guitars. This is one of my go to guitars and pretty special to me but I don't know much about it. Any information would be great. http://imgur.com/a/AeiFr Sorry for the bad quality image.
[QUESTION] Recommendations for hollow body electric
Hi there, So im looking to purchase a new hollow body electric. So far ive been looking at the epiphone casino and like how it feels. Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for other models worth looking in to. Price range around 600-1200. Thanks!
I want a semi-hollow body for my next guitar. Any suggestions?
Well, my current guitar is an Epiphone SG Special. And I hate that piece of shit. I am aware of the Epiphone Dot but I have concerns about the Epiphone brand. I really do not like my Epiphone SG , and I've played a couple of Epiphone Les Pauls that feel/sound equally bad. Maybe some reassuarnce that the Epi Dot is diffrent would help? And I would prefer something cheap (under 1000) as I'm only a freshman in high school. Edit: Are these Semi-Hollowbodys good for Rock/Punk? (not traditionlly I know, But they'llbe fine right? 'Cuz i want somethign versitale that I can use for Jazz/ Blues if I wanted to too.)
[GEAR] I need a favor from anyone attending NAMM 2014
First time posting here. I have a HUGE favor for anyone attending NAMM 2014. Please stop by the Epiphone booth and look for (or inquire about) a Blueburst Epiphone Casino. Please find out about it and when it should become available. If it's not there could you please inquire about it and message me? It may also be a Gary Clarke Jr "Signature" Blak and Blu Casino or something along those lines. There are photo's out there both with and without a Bigsby and I am in love with that guitar. I almost pulled the trigger and purchased a Casino but now after seeing this picture I want to wait until I know this will or won't be an option this model year. Here's a picture of this beautiful guitar. https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/c0.0.403.403/p403x403/923155_621810711181745_918262722_n.jpg So if anyone going could inquire and pm me I would be ever so grateful. P.S. Also ask the great folks at the Gibson booth if no info from Epiphone.
Semi-acoustic guitars. John Lennon played almost exclusively on a Epiphone Casino semi-acoustic from about '65 with the Beatles. Originally, the guitar had a Sunburst finish when in 1967, during the course of the psychedelic fashion heyday, it was completely psyched out, only to be then freed from all colour only one year later.
