Just ordered a new toy!!

Post by conkerandco » Thu Mar 01, 2012 10:41 pm

So after a few days of deliberation i've finally bit the bullet and blown my entire months paycheck (I'm 16 and still in school) on a new guitar!

After realising the supreme versatility of 355 style guitars as-well as how cool they look and after enlessly playing my singers ebony version in the studio i knew it was finally time to get one!

I will post pics when it gets delivered :D

Hey, congrats!

It's always good to hear when youth save up their hard earned cash to get something they want. If that's turns out to be a great player, which many Epiphones are, you will have a lot of options to upgrade pickups/hardware later on too. But for the mean time, and since you blew all your cash :lol: , enjoy that sucker out of the box!

Way to go. And you didn't go with the prototypical ibanez or some 7 string pos. Classy move. Hope u enjoy that music maker.

Nice looking choice. Hope it's a good 'un. Epi dots are always tempting. If I was a better guitarist I'd have probably grabbed one years ago! 8)

One of the best blues rock players I ever saw live played a Lucille through a vintage OR amp. The way he continually changed his sounds on the fly with that rotary switch and his tone / volume pots fascinated me. Great player with a great guitar + amp = great sounds.

I've been eyeing the 355's for a couple of years now. Buying something because it's a good deal is pleasing, but throwing down all your money because it looks cool is liberating. :D

this is so true.


until you realize that you've got a short in your guitar cable and need a new one but have ZERO money.

Congrats, I don't know what it is, but I always find the Epiphone semi-hollows to be better playing guitars then alot of the Les Paul and SG models.

That's because Li Guangdong oversees semi-hollow production at the Epiphone factory. He's the Paul Reed Smith of Southeastern China :D .

ahhh I wish I knew. I've been trying to sell my Tokai 335 copy for a month or so now in Oxford and on Harmony Central and no-one is biting.

Aha, glad to know you guys approve! It should be delivered tomorrow :) I had an epi SG as my first 'proper' guitar and have loved it for years, although i can't deny the epi Dots are far superior in playability and build quality.
