    NSLAfLP

    Does this count as the old man stage?

    I got this Epi Les Paul for free from my dad. It's a goth model from some year. After my dad retired he got into playing guitar and picked this up for cheap because some kid tried to turn it into a fretless. Dad re-fretted it and threw on a coat of paint. He prefers acoustic and needed space so it's mine now. Fret job is acceptable for basement riffage and the paint makes me not care a whole lot about beating it up. It needs a new bridge pickup, not sure what's in it but it's woolly and ice-pickey so I'm not a fan of it. Like the guitar though. Sounds pretty decent and doesn't weight a metric tonne. Could have some more sustain but eh. I'll pick up another LP at some point.

    Also TOM>*








    Here's some slop. I dialed in a better tone a few days after this but don't care enough to re-record it. Finally own a house so I can actually play with some volume.

      Nice one. I've got the same model myself and it's a solid instrument. First guitar I bought with my own money, and still use it for studio duties.

      Congrats!

          Great score!

          Budget $50 for a pickup and cycle til you find something you like.

              Can't beat the price!

              I almost picked up one of those once; those Epi LPs can be surprisingly nice if you find the right one.

                The Goths and rubbed finish models sound better than anything else. I'm normally not a fan of Epiphones, but the goths sound great.

                  Seriously. That Goth Explorer you had sounded great, it was just too big for the tiny places we play.

                    Clearly the finish allows the wood to vibrate more. Gibson had their top scientists on the design of them.
