    Ok. I'll jump in right here. I've had this account longer than I realized and finally have a good internet connection. I'm in my mid 50s and really just getting started on my way with all of this. I've been self teaching for 3 years. I like something of most kinds of music but am partial to my own creations. I have a friend who is a professional musician. His instruments are Gibson and D'angelico. I don't like to touch them though they are beautiful. I have already tried many different Epi's. Still so many to try! I am currently playing a Customized LP ii. I'll attempt to get a picture added.As far as Epiphone is concerned, I'm an impressed seasoned rookie. It will be years before I'll need to spend $5000 on a note chopper.

    Cool story, I am self taught myself and honestly became a lot easier since the internet came along. I am firm believer in the fact you don't need a $5000 guitar to sound good and set it up they way you like it. One of the very reasons I love Epi's.

    No need to spend $5000 on a Gibson LPC. You can get a pre-owned one for $2500. ha ha.

    welcome aboard ! i think most of us feel the same way. no reason at all
    to spend $5k on one guitar, when you can have multiple guitars for a bit
    less. i have a $60 epi special, to a $2k norlin, and a ton in between that
    range. they all get the fingers from me.

    Oh man, more learning!? Isn't there some kind of gadget or magic button. I may have to have my son tutor me. I'll bet that formatting my pictures is gonna show up soon.

    Welcome aboard. You don't need a $5K instrument. You may want one (which is fine), but a decent Epi will take you very far.

    Seriously, 5K will still get you most of the way into a half decent used car these days. A tenth of that will get you a real nice Epi.
