    Bought this guitar new and never seen another in person and only today after many websites have I even seen a picture of a 12 string model. Would like to know exact manufacturing specs and approximate value. It has been played on stage but in good very condition. I would appreciate any feedback. [email protected]

I've played guitar for 49 years now. I've tried many many brands of strings. I've personally settled on DiAddario light gauge. It is for the most part a personal issue, but I've found them to be reliable, consistent and of good tone. It's a very rare thing for me to break a string even though I am often aggressive in my playing.i hope this helps you.

This is really a personal choice as long as the strings are made for an electric guitar there are hundreds of different kinds, it mostly has to do with the thickness of the strings and how the thinner the string the easier it is to manulipulate, you should go to a good music store and tell them what type of music you play and they will give you some choices.

What Epiphone model did I purchase?

Sounds like perhaps a Les Paul Special II, but more detail is needed to say for sure. There was a lot of variation in their Les Paul models. Posting a photo of both sides and the headstock is best.

-Has the guitar any binding, and what colour?
-Is the back of the guitar white or all black?
-Exactly what is on the front of the headstock, 'Epiphone', the 4-diamond logo, anything else?

B string flat up to 4th fret

You need to set the intonation. There are videos on Youtube on how to setup a guitar. Avoid doing anything to the truss rod. Search YouTube for "guitar setup". If it will not setup, you might need to replace the string.

Sounds like your truss rod needs to be adjusted. This should only be done by a professional. Take your guitar to a shop or guitar store that offers a service like this.

If you really want to do this yourself, though, here's a helpful video that will take you step by step through this:

I have just purchased a les paul ultra 2. The nano pick up does not work without increasing the gain. I thought the volume control on the front controlled the nano pick up and the gain was for just that. I...

You need to adjust the controls for the nano on the control cavity plate on the back of the guitar the way you want them first. Here is a link to a simplified explanation: A better explanation should be in the manual but I don't think they did as good of a job as they should have.

My guitar has is an epiphone les paul but it also says gibson directly above the nut. what does this mean?

Epiphone is a budget conscious gibson. And probably not made in the USA.
1957 - Gibson's parent company, CMI, buys Epiphone for $20,000, originally intending to harness its upright bass operation, but ultimately reviving the Epiphone name on guitars. A full line of newly designed acoustics and electrics is unveiled in 1958, and two years later Epiphone production moves into Gibson's factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

1970 - In the face of foreign competition, Epiphone production is moved to Japan. Through the 1970s and early '80s, the Epiphone line has little continuity, although it maintains respect as a quality import brand.

1983 - Epiphone production is moved to Korea.

1986 - Henry Juszkiewicz, David Berryman and Gary Zebrowski acquire Epiphone and Gibson. The Epi line is soon expanded to include traditional models like the Sheraton, Emperor and Howard Roberts, along with Epi versions of Gibson classics like the Les Paul, Flying V and Explorer.

How do i choice to buy a custom epiphone les paul

If you are on a limited budget then get a standard Epiphone Les Paul. The Custom is not much better. If you have a little more to spend then I recommend getting a new or used Gibson Les Paul Studio.

Narrowing down which guitar to buy is completely opinion-based. You need to try multiple guitars to find one you like best since they all feel a little different.
