Avoid. Cheap and nasty. The Yamaha's are the only decent guitars that Argos sell. As for epiphone, very hit and miss on quality control. Don't buy epiphone online, you really need to check them for yourself.

A video of the guitar and amp in action here for you guys[Video]


I get a weird vibe from that video.

Like the guy has just casually murdered his wife and she's lying mangled behind the camera.

Think you would be better off with the Epiphone set for only £20 more..

amazon.co.uk/Epi…h=1

Better guitar, better amp, includes a tuner and bag for guitar.

Not that I am saying either will sound great (always the amps that let these sets down).

Also while we are nit picking, how can it have a 3 way pick up selector switch with only one pick up? It appears to be an invisible one anyway.

Late to the party, but guessing this is no longer stocked if the link doesn't work?
Amazingly cheap for a USA Gibson, it looks like the '57 Classic pickups alone retail at £80 each.
Good find!
I gave in and bought one. GAK are now including a free pack of Elixir strings to boot.

I play mostly rock and blues and this thing really surprised me. It's just perfect for both.

The neck is a joy to use. I usually like thick necks and this is kinda in between. Fills your hand and it tends to make me play more accurately when playing lead - no doubt because it is asymmetric.

The pickups are a great match for the body and tone woods. Thick smoldering tones with nice articulation when playing lightly and a fat punch when you dig in. I also noticed how the whole guitar resonates when playing. You can really feel the head stock vibrating when tuning which is a good sign.

The tuners are really accurate and feel stable.

A very expressive instrument. I know a good guitar when I play one for the simple reason that I can't put it down once I start playing.

I have been playing for 24 years and I own 14 electrics ranging from Custom shop Gibson Les Paul's to vintage strats and in my opinion this is a GREAT player. Sometimes the tone from a Les Paul is just too much and the tone from a Strat is just too little and too familiar.. and that's when something like this just fits the bill.

If I had to sum up the tone in one word it would be 'smoldering'
I would put just one normal tuning peg on it .

I am pretty happy with it. Doesn't seem to be bad quality at all. The only issue i have had is the fret board seems to dry out faster than my other guitars but apart from that it's good. Mine is a 2016 model, hence the block inlays32317320-le3Jn.jpg

Roger that. The store is in Blackburn, and Reidys are reputable. Well worth the trip for those interested in this guitar. Would also allow £20-30 for a setup. Shouldn't have to really, but I think that's true of most guitars in this bracket right now. Maybe Reidys would do a basic setup as goodwill. Another £80 for a hardcase if it's going out the house at all.

Just bought a Schecter otherwise I'd consider it. Price is great for a fine example.
Must....have. Food and rent is over rated.

Looks are personal but the guitar is a genuine diamond. I don't own one as I use PRS electrics as have a mind that allows non Gibson/fenders to be tried and experienced. My acoustic is a Taylor Ltd edition fall 2011 koa guitarAmp is a Hughes and Kettner grandmeister 3



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.

Been posted at least twice before. We bought one a while ago and can recommended it - quality build and very nice warm, jazzy tone. Perhaps a bit heavy for a younger player or learner but very good value. The case is quite decent too.

Low end guitar like an Epiphone or a Fender oO



Some US made Gibsons can justifiably over-priced and a very few have quality problems that leave them languishing unsold, but they are never low end. Epiphone make some decent standard instruments as well as a couple of low end ones like the LP100.
Fenders don't put their name on anything low end, including the Mexicans guitars. Consistently good stuff coming out of Ensenada.

I wouldn't rate either of those as low end. There's a reverse snobbery in the guitar world that makes that statement sound somewhat unfounded.

I've had an approx £200-250 ish guitar (at a guess - a Fenix TC20) since the early 90s....rarely get chance to play it despite always wanting to....so tempting to finally pick up something decent....and of course for Rocksmith



If youve not played much in 20 years then I see no point in wasting even more money on a hobbie that clearly you have little interest in. The guitar doesnt make the player...its the other way round.

Great guitar, great price hate the shop.
Spent over £2000 there once, they wouldn't even throw in a strap or string!
Silly really, spent the same 6 months later but went somewhere else.

Back in stock - how do you un-expire?
I'd love a Gibson but they are too rich for my blood. I have a Hagstrom Viking Deluxe which is modeled on the 335

My dad bought a guitar with the "Gibson" logo on from Cash Generator, I was like "you stupid fool, they'd never have a real Gibson in there for £90." He said "prove it's not real." So I googled the guitar, which had it's own model number, and it was basically an entry level guitar, sorta like the ones you get from Argos with an amp. The guitar did state it was made in China, that alone told me it wasn't the Gibson we all know and love/(hate?), but it was a product of the Gibson Corp so to speak. I've been playing guitar for many years, I actually own a Gibson Les Paul Studio, and a Gibson SG Standard.
