Great shot ! …the silver model is a real beauty … i had an older gibson LP that i purchased in toronto back in the 70’s …it didn’t look quite this good but i wish i had kept it…even though i don’t play that well …lol

Amazing how many Chinese Epiphones out there on the market….and how cheaply they are made.
I love my Epiphone Nighthawk. 🙂

Yeah Epiphone is alright….Although some custom version are sold with a plastic nut *sigh*… They lost me there. Just found myself a Korean made LP that had a 490t at the neck already installed..A nice cherry burst one too.
Now I need to replace the neck pickup for a 490r cuz this korean one in it won’t cut it…
I guess it’s true….Rock and roll IS a vicious game.

Replacing bits and making improvements on a guitar that is fundamentally sound, is good to a point. But if you have several guitars and you replace parts like the pick ups that came with the guitar for 490`s or whatever, they all start sounding the same and what`s the point of that? I have many guitars and some of the older ones especially sound unique and if I was to replace the original “pups” for example with the latest from say Fender, Gibson or Seymour Duncan, I`d be taking a step backwards. Actually I have stock EPI`s that sound and play better than stock Gibsons. But if a person only has one or two guitars and needs to get a “more suitable sound” then by all means, customize away.
And of course if someone buys a nice guitar for say $500.00 and then spends $300.00 to make it sound “better” then what`s the point of that…might as well save your money and buy what you really want in the first place and enjoy! Bottom line is don`t buy a guitar you don`t like. cheers
