Epi LP Junior- It came with a humbucker, but I remedied that crime against humanity.
If it's already said please forgive. But check out the Epiphone Owner's Club
Epiphone Owners Club! | Telecaster Guitar Forum (tdpri.com)
In answer to your question, yes several and most have been posted.
I was looking at an '89 epiphone tele like that some months ago, AND that turquoise LP is what we bought my son. Funny odds.
I have a 2008 Les Paul and 2005 Dot. All upgraded. Love them
Yes, several: SG G-400, ES-335 Dot Royale, BluesHawk, ES-339, Casino Coupe, ES Les Paul Florentine
Casino Coupe - ES-335 Dot Royale - WildKat Studio - BluesHawk
ES Les Paul Florentine
I owned one of these ( bought new, maybe 1994)
Mine was Cherry Mahogany and called a Les Paul Special Double Cut
I stupidly, did not give the stock P-90's much of a chance before having them replaced. Kind of knee jerk-
The shop had Seymour Duncan ones, I think called ' Custom Hot Soapbars' in stock and I had those put it.
Just too hot! Very dark, strong tone- I kept it a few years, but just not a lot of play time; sold it.
I'd like a re-do with this guitar- with some vintage spec Lollar or Fralin P-90's ( pickups I have owned or played)
Please ship this to me, thanks!
They make nice guitars.
OK, OK, I'll post mine!
This is the only picture I have accessible of it at the moment. I had found the eBay packing slip that came with the guitar when I bought it back in the early 2000's. I snapped that pic to show a friend for laugh. I was in high school, and my main guitar had a Floyd Rose with a locking nut, so I needed something that I could rock with in drop D tuning. I had never played an SG before, but I bought this on a whim because it was a good price ($250 with the hardshell case plus $30 shipping). It came with a Duncan 59 in the neck, but it wasn't advertised as such. It must have been the stock bridge pickup though.
I swapped the bridge pickup out for an uncovered ESP humbucker and rocked that look for a while, but I was never totally satisfied with the pups in that guitar. I eventually scored an EMG 81/85 set for really cheap, so I decided to try them out in the SG. I absolutely hated those pickups in the SG! Which is strange, because I have two 81s in my LTD (basswood body) and I love it. EMGs in the SG though, it was just too loud and unwieldy. So I sold off the EMGs and got a couple of DiMarzio pups for it. The classic Super Distortion for the bridge and I forget the model of the neck pup but it was described as the PAF Pro but with more output and a slightly different EQ. But that neck pup isn't right, it has too much output and it's too bassy for me. I have a PAF Pro that I want to swap in there when I get around to it and then I'll hopefully finally be done with the pickup swapping in this guitar! I swapped the pickups out so many times that the pickup ring screws don't hold tight anymore. These days I know to chase the existing threads, but back in high school I wasn't that wise.
I had thought about stripping the body and refinishing it black, but leaving the back of the neck and headstock red. I think that would look really neat. But I'm too lazy to ever get around to doing that. I hated the "top hat" knobs that came with it, and swapped them out for speed knobs. Each tone pot is a push/pull. I have the bridge pup wired for series/parallel and the neck wired for humbucker/single coil.
LP Traditional Pro III -
Many years ago I had an old LP clone. It was my second guitar, and the first guitar I ever bought myself. It was heavy, and the pickups were screachy. I sold it to buy new gear, but I always kind of regretted it. I didn't have an LP style guitar since then, a good 15-20 years ago now. But something turned me on to these Traditional Pro III and in early 2020 I was working in an office that was 10 minutes away from a Guitar Center. So one day I decided to go to Guitar Center on my lunch break to check this guitar out. They had just the floor model in stock, and I ended up buying it! The factory setup leaves a lot to be desired, and there's some finish hiccups to laugh at like the gold finish on part of the neck binding, but other than that I think it was worth every penny. The pickups are fantastic. I didn't like the Pau Ferro fretboard at first, but it's grown on me. And I really like the zebra pickups with the gold top. The back is a satin finish that I really like. I think I'm going to add a pickgaurd and I was thinking about wiring the bridge pickup for series/parallel instead of coil split, but other than that it's fantastic for the price.
Just one , a 2011 Masterbilt AJ-500m.
This is the one I play in church every week . A solid spruce top with a mahogany body and neck.
Sorry, no Epi electrics right now
That's a distinct improvement. The original guard/pickup assembly on those looks like a bathroom fixture.
Two, both Valve Jrs.
I have the Inspired by ‘55 Les Paul Custom. It’s my favorite guitar.
Big fan of Epiphone:
I have the new worn goldtop and love it. Way better than previous years. The headstock finally looks nice. I swapped the pickups but otherwise the parts are quality
I’ve posted the 2020 Les Paul a few times, but not this one: 2005 Masterbilt RM-something or other - solid spruce, rosewood and mahogany.
Worked the hell out of it for a couple years in an acoustic duo thing. Sounds massive acoustic, and good enough through a PA.
Supposedly, my SL has the 'Pacific Blue' finish. Sure looks like turquoise to me.
How does your son like it? I re-wired mine, replaced the tuners and cleaned up the fret ends. It's a fun axe with a nice grungy sound.
Just got this 2018 Epiphone Les Paul Plus Top Pro, a great guitar.
