yeah that was pretty evident from.his godawful headstock design
This makes it hard for me to feel like all Epi's look cheap...
I will retract my statement about pickup rings on a Les Paul. If not black. I think it's just black ones tbh.
Fun fact: significantly more $$$ in wire on single coil vs a humbucker. Magnets are more too.
Abalone binding and non matching headstocks are gross. Body binding that doesn't line up with the board / neck...
Not saying you're wrong, please please explain this
Here's one: bad bursts. Just ones with terrible blending. Nothing makes a guitar seem cheap like a "bullseye" burst.
Legator is like the king of it.
Honestly? The wrong headstock.
I'm looking at you Dean
You just explained why Silverburst is both the most beautiful finish
And most ugly finish
I know it can be like this for a lot of burst finishes, but when you're dealing with a black on top of a shiny, glittering silver finish, the flaw is *glaring*
I have a Gotoh TOM, and half the saddles are facing a different direction... Are you saying this is a manufacturing error?? I don't know if I've ever seen a TOM that's not this way...
If I were to flip them to all face the same way, is there some benefit? Also, which way would that be?
The word “Dean” on the headstock
Especially if there are block inlays. Blocks need binding. NEED.
The Epi headstock on their Les Pauls. Stuff like the new Wilshires look great with it, because it's an Epi headstock on an Epi guitar, but it just looks wrong on a Les Paul.
The Wilshire didn't exist prior to Gibson ownership. They bought Epiphone in 57' (deal closed in 58'), but the Crestwood came out in 58'.
Relicing that isn't earned (a lovely Geddy Lee phrase).
Instant put off for me. I think it gimmicky, tacky and just downright cheap looking.
I know, but as far as I know, even the ones that the Gibson Custom shop made where still labeled Epiphone.
PRS is sad
Black gloss finish, unfinished headstock, with a rosewood fretboard and white pickguard. To me, it is just the most vanilla looking finish imaginable and reminds me of every single Walmart style starter guitar you see in shops.
