    Got the Modern today. Very happy with it, looks and sounds great right out of the box. It will be a fun weekend.

    So Many Epiphone's....Guitar Buying Advice for a Newbie...

    I ended up going with GC. They had them in stock as well as the Katana, Sweetwater was back ordered on both. I also have local access to a GC should there be any issues. I was also able to get 15% off my whole order so I saved $186. Order shipped today so I should see it by the end of the week.

    Finally pulled the trigger today. Ordered the Epi Modern in Sparkling Burgundy with a Katana 100 MK2 amp. Should see it in a week. Thanks for all the advice I've received. Now I'll be asking about learning how to play. :)

    I've appreciated all the advice I've gotten here on guitars. Everyone is super supportive and helpful with sharing their experience. I haven't asked about amps but I'm planning on getting a Katana 100 MK II. I considered the 50 but the 100 is compatible with the GA-FC foot pedal where the 100...

    I think all things being equal I would shop with Sweetwater but when I checked with them the Moderns and '59's are both on back order and not expected for the next couple of months....which may not be an issue because the Burgundy Modern just went on backorder at GC to. I'm not really in too...

    I thought the pictures of them looked good but seeing in person was different. I wasn't thrilled with the unfinished grainy appearance of the wood. It was a cool maroon color which kind of turned me on to the Begundy Modern. I walked away from the interweb for a few days but when I go back and...

    Thanks. I've been to the local GC and they have a Trad Pro IV that i've checked out. The neck shape is probably a bit different but could feel the heft of the LP.

    @Raiyn I agree with you on the resale. don't ever really envision selling. Even if I wanted something different I'd keep whatever i get as my first. i still have my first mountain bike from the 80's. Thanks for the tips on the Modern. I do like the idea of a super versatile guitar so i can fool...

    It' s funny that what you've stated has pretty much been what I've been thinking after my research. The modern had a few more features with the split coil option but the '59 has the better electronics overall. I also figured the resale on the '59 would be better if ever needed. As for price...

    So Many Epiphone's....Guitar Buying Advice for a Newbie...

    Hey all. Newbie here. I'm in the same boat as the original poster but with a far smaller list of Epi's I'm considering. I've never played guitar but always wanted to learn. I have an acoustic but it just doesn't do it for me so I don't pick it up often, it does look good as wall art. I've...
