    I've been reading a bunch of stuff online that's been saying that the Epiphone Les Pauls are as good or, in some cases, even better than Gibson's Les Pauls are nowadays. I know that Gibson's in dire straits right now. What do you (fellow guitar playing) guys think?

    Well, I bought an Epiphone Casino last may and am pleased with it. It did require a setup, and I had to try about 3 or 4 of them before I found one that felt "right". I think with Gibsons, when I try them out, they all seem to feel much the same - that is to say, pretty great. But the Gibson equivalent to my Casino is about 3 grand, and I paid only $800. Is the Gibson nearly 4x better? I didn't think so.

    Gibson is in trouble financially right now, and a loan is coming due. I also know a music store is selling "Make Gibson Great Again" hats fashioned like you-know-who's.

    If you are considering a Les Paul and you want to pay Gibson money, there are plenty of manufacturers who make as-good-if-not-better ones... Like the Godin Summit Classic.

    Best thing is to try them out and see.

    What Noilly said. I tried several epi LP. All were nice, but for one reason or another, not right for me. I wound up with an ESP LTD ec-401.

    My newest 2 guitars (both bought for me by my mother) are a 2017 Gibson es-335 studio that's very nice, and a 2016 fender telecaster professional that I'm in love with. It's the best guitar I own

    Did you try out an Epi yet? The cheap ones are just that, but, the 500-1000 ones are very nice. I came very close to buying an Epi trad pro 2, then I played the Ltd and liked it better.

    No. I haven't been to a guitar shop recently. Hence why I'm not completely broke.

    Amusing

    I saw this GIF and it made me think that this is how I looked when I finally figured out how to play B7 cleanly...



    Doesn't he look like the least badass ever? Maybe he's some rock god but I don't recognize him.

    Jeez, even with YouTube compression on the audio, those are stunning sounding guitars. I'm scared to click the link and see how much a hand crafted acoustic costs...

    The cheapest one I found was $10,000.

    They are nice guitars... but I'm not spending what would amount to a down payment on a luxury car to buy one.
