Looking at the picture of the Epiphone you posted...see that little thing at the bottom of the head? If its like mine, and I'm sure it is, thats a Gibson badge.

I thought that's because Epiphone is owned by Gibson...I was under the impression that Epiphone basically makes same models as Gibson, only with the cheaper wood.

I figured the Gibson badge shows it's a Gibson model, only made by Epiphone with the Epiphone materials.

This is might be a dumb question and probably is. Do all Gibsons have such a heavy sound. I've only played one Gibson guitar (Les Paul) but from what the other Gibsons sound like they all just sound heavy. I also have a Fender Telecaster with a real light sound which is mad bitchin.

Oh and i bought Killer 7 for Gamecube. The shit is so fucking trippy, i love it.

As I understand it, or as it was explained to me, the Gibson badge on an Epiphone-built guitar means that its a Gibson design built at the Epiphone works in Korea. Gibson guitars are generally built in the USA. Not sure how accurate this is, but I dont care - my guitar sounds amazing.

I can't really answer the heaviness question as this is the first guitar I've had that has had anything to do with Gibson (I have played a 1967 Gibson EB-3 bass - and man...they dont build 'em like they used to. Beautiful sound.) but I actually thought the heaviness was a bit light on. Before this I played an ESP AX-50 that I had borrowed, which looks sort of like a cross between a Warlock and a Flying-V, and it sounded much heavier but it was much more prone to feedback and buzzing than my current one. That might be an amplifier issue as I'm only playing through a 15W practice amp, but I doubt it cause the amp is a beauty: Roland Cube 15.

From what I remember, Epiphone is the 'budget' brand made in Korea, but the quality is pretty darn good. It is quite often cheaper just because of lower labour costs. There are particular models in the epiphone range which are said to be better than their Gibson equivilents.

I wanted one of the epiphone les pauls at one point... how my obsessions wander.

Hreh I almost bought a Les Paul.

I was actually going to get a second hand Rickenbacker bass for a while, but I was dead keen on switching to the 6-string full time, and as some of you know I've wanted a V for years.

Quite happy with the decision.

I was refering to the Gothic V, the one with the red pickups? Looks the business. I mainly decided against buying a guitar because playing and owning one would cramp my style.

This one? : http://epiphone.com/default.asp?Prod...CollectionID=5

I prefer my pickups to the open coil ones, but I suppose thats a matter of personal taste. I suppose that if I had come across the Goth V with a more reasonable price (cheapest I saw was $1000, which is ridiculous for a beginner like myself) I could have convinced myself to get it, but I got an awesome deal on the Korina 58 ($200 off, free bag, oil etc) which allowed me to get a better amplifier.

The beauty of the Korina styled V is that I can use it to play many different styles of music...the Gothic V looks a bit out of place outside of heavy metal.

You're right of course. I myself prefer the wood finish to black. I would have wanted a rusty brown / mahongany coloured les paul, if I was going to get one. I'd probably look a tad silly with a flying V. But then again, i'd look silly with a explorer, les paul, and strat.

Apparently it makes me very gay. Although I'm not a woman. If I was, it may make sense, but as you point out, it's about lesbians. And it's bloody moving. Oh wait, I might have figured where the "gay" jibes came from..."moving" is hardly a masculine adjective.

Sod it, I still like it.

And because my old graphics card seemed to be incompatible with the new one, I now have a brand spanking new x1900gt 256mb

I was going to get a 7600gt, but at the computer fair in Tottenham court road, the prices for it were pretty high. For 20 quid more I could have the x1900gt, and I thought 'I make that money in about 2 hours' and bought it.
