I agree - not really for "dabblers". There have been one or two music tech posts such as Syntronic and M-Audio but like you I think they are a rare treat.


ex display with grubby finger bacteria


A rare pleasure to see music tech posted here, let alone a synth, let alone am Elektron product! It's a more reasonable price now, but the uninitiated should REALLY research what they're getting into with Elektron gear before making a purchase. Heat.


Fantastic price! Heat. (Why is it being voted down?)

That makes sense. Thanks


My son has been asking for a Floyd Rose, cheers


Difficult to tell from the images - and I'm too lazy to look it up - but the original Wolfgang had a non-recessed FR so it wasn't quite as prone to slipping out of tune. There is a learning curve with stringing these and stretching the strings is an absolute must before tightening the locking nut. If you can test it out before buying that's always the best option, though failing that it's worth hunting for user reviews rather than vendor showcase videos.


The only reason Floyd's still exist is to make you buy another guitar!

I'm afraid people are dumb enough to think this would be a good guitar. I've dealt with people like that most of my life. Even today I was sat in Greggs and a so called deaf & dumb man came up to me and shoved a sponsorship sheet under my nose. No badge, a dodgy looking sheet and I recalled a news article about this scam so I politely told him to p off. He goes to the next table and she gets her purse out straight away. I still say a secondhand Squire Strat or even a Yahama Pacifica would be a better guitar than this at roughly the same price.


Who said anything about this being the same as a proper Epiphone Les Paul? No one in their right mind is going to think at £85 they’re going to get a “real” Les Paul - dont keep stating the obvious. Jesus. Moaning again.


looks like a toy, for that price pick up a used on Ebay, with half decent pickups and body


I'm being a realist. Common sense should tell you that some people are going to buy this guitar and think they will have a real Les Paul. That is not the case. As I pointed out, this is basically firewood. I can buy a lot more firewood for £85. Better to buy a proper Epiphone Les Paul secondhand. One with a decent body and humbuckers not single coils. This has as much in common with a proper Epiphone Les Paul as John McCririck does with fashion. Anyone with experience of guitars would tell you the same!


It costs £85 for Christ’s sake. What more would you expect? Jesus. Some people are just moaning minnies.

What the...???? Have no idea what this means, but it sounds like something I should definitely connect my guitar to (lol)


Interesting technology deployed here - for those that care - it uses an adapted version of Vacuum floureshent displays (think 1970s pre-LED green digital alarm clock) and uses it like a conventional thermionic triode. You may not be able to teach an old dog new tricks, but if you wait long enough, old hat becomes the new latest technology! Saying that, I don't have any use for one of these, and if I did, I'd probably "roll my own! Still voted hot though


Remember this is the head only so need a decent cab to back it up too.

Well the tuning pegs are holding their tune, but unless you play across the fingerboard you can’t know the neck isn’t shaped like a banana


Any decent prices for this for lefties?


I learned to play on a one of these, great instrument, very comfortable.


I'm embarrassed to say that I bought this guitar for a similar price about 4 years ago to pick up learning again and have probably only used it 3 times. However every time I walk past it in the hall way on its stand I give it a little strum and it still sounds as in tune as it did the day I bought it and tuned it. Can't say better than that!


I've got my original one I bought in 1995, and one I found a year ago on the side of the road. a good clean, buffed frets, fretboard clean and new strings, good as new agreed with above, many half price deals on gumtree or ebay if you don't mind used, some in VGC

Get dealGet deal

Worth noting that the fender Mexico and USA factories are a stones throw away from each other (relatively speaking) just 3 hours by car, not like they are being built in China or Indonesia


Sounds like you have a different technique to most :{


I had a Mexican Tele for years, and the build quality was superb! Just a beautiful guitar and amazing sound. Eventually gave it up because it was quite heavy and gigging day after day for hours on end became a ball-ache!


True but to be fair (and in my opinion) there is a lesser chance to get a rubbish MIA one than MIM. MIM were really good in the 90s though so it's always worth to check the aftermarket!


I have a standard, an LPJ (not a junior) and an SG (which were of course Les Paul's when released) the junior gets played more than all of them. Juniors have been around since the 50's so of course it's a Les Paul Also worth noting that often "cheaper" models are structurally identical to more expensive models minus time consuming extras like binding, gloss paint etc

Got mine a few minutes ago. As you said above, its a lot of instrument for the money. I ordered extra rosin as i didnt know rosin came free with it. I cant play so I dont know how it sounds or if it keeps hold of its tune...School music teacher said to get the following book: Violin Star 1, Student's Book, with CD by Edward Huws Jones 9781860968990.


Just got mine out of the box. Comes in a pretty good case, just seems to be some canvas material with polystyrene padding on the inside but it'll hold up to a few bumps. The whole top of the case zips as well so you could probably fit some music or a small book in there. You get the case, violin, a bow, rosin and some straps so you can carry the case on your back. Unfortunately I snapped a string as I was learning that you have to push the pegs in as you turn them to tune it but I did manage to tune it using PitchLab Lite. Can't really comment on how well it holds its tune as i can't be sure i'm applying correct pressure on the pegs, but i did manage to get a reasonably pleasant sound out of the remaining strings after applying rosin to the bow. But all in all i'd say it's a lot of instrument for the money, definitely not a toy and at this price easily worth a try if you or your child aren't sure if you're going to enjoy it enough to really splash out on one. Now, to pick up some new strings. And a mute. And a fret guide. And a book...

Nice deal! I bought my Ibanez Ergodyne bass about 13 years ago and it plays as lovely as the day I bought it :)


You are correct :) Did my research a bit after then. Opted to buy the next model up, an Ibanez GSR200 in walnut - cheapest could find around 189 from memory, but managed to use bespoke which got me it for £163 - and should also come to an awesome price of £134 so long as I get paid the 18% quidco cashback that has tracked on it :)


I know this post is a bit old but I can guarantee the ibanez will poop all over that encore.

Boasting about what gear you've bought doesn't prove your experience as a good guitarist - only an unhealthy attitude. I think it would be more just to say: "buy whatever guitar you want, as long as it aspires you to play." My relationship with my Pacifica 012 hasn't been great as my personal feeling towards the guitar is that it's a little boring and a little ugly, which did damaged my interest when starting to play.


This does remind me of a story in Guitarist magazine. Some guy had saved up for many years to finally buy a beautiful 2 grand PRS superstrat. While admiring it when he finally got it home he thought to himself..."I wish I'd learned to play the guitar before I bought this!" :D


Axes down guys, nothing like bedrocker aficionados, read some reviews, watched some experts on YT and think they know it all. Music is about FUN


I agree that it is the individuals choice and budget constraints that dictate that choice, but with the budget available the OP has made a good choice IMHO, and you will never struggle to sell a quality instument like an Epiphone for a decent price, and with a better quality guitar to start with, you will not be looking to upgrade it so soon when you do progress.


At the end of the day it's up to the individual as how much they want to spend. If, as many they decide the guitar is not for them this perticular guitar will be hard to shift and definately sell for way less than new price. If they dont want to take advice then that's fine. Maybe we'll see them on Guitar Star but I doubt it? :D

I haven't played either of these. Your spotting of the Kustom 5H on eBay probably merits a separate deal post, as it's nothing like this Redwood combo. How much would adding a cabinet with a similar speaker (e.g. Celestion 8") cost?


It's a head rather than a combo but, for the same price, this is a far better all-valve amplifier: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kustom-5H-All-Valve-5-Watt-Tube-Guitar-Amplifier-Amp-Head-Brand-New-RRP-119-/221293143697?pt=UK_MusicalInstr_Amplifiers_RL&hash=item3386196691
