    ^^ What he said. Make sure to test it out and whatnot. Either way you can't really go wrong with an 80 dollar guitar. (If I recall correctly, this is your first, yeah?) Epiphone makes pretty decent guitars for the price. I played an Epiphone Les Paul Custom for like five years and it was honestly just as good as a lot of Gibsons that I played. I've since sold it, but it served me well regardless.

    YES so happy i finally found the cause of this weird buzz coming from the head of my les paul that was making me infinitely frustrated , turns out it was a loose nut under the string lock of the low e, just tightened er' up and its good as new! almost brought it to guitar center, wouldve been a serious waste of time and money

    I've enjoyed the set of chrome flatwounds that D'Adarrio puts out in 11-15-22w-30-40-50. It seems like these improve on the ranges of my guitar that roundwound nickel strings didn't compliment very well. There's something different about the attack that I enjoy too. A lot of it comes down to individual preference.

    I was trying to restring my guitar myself, but ended up breaking the low e and a string. I'll probably just wait until I make the rest of the $60 and let some professional do that shit lol I just bought a whole pack too and I don't wanna risk breaking the rest. Luckily, I did save my old strings so it's not a total waste.

    probably just wound em too tight at the start. you have to string it just so the strings are the tiniest bit taut, then let it sit like that for a while so the strings stretch out. then slowly tighten em over the course of like 10 minutes and you should be good

    gotta learn somehow right?

    Sorry Skaterdude, most of this I disagree with. Start with electric, get familiar with playing before you move to acoustic (if you want to). If you start with acoustic it usually deters people because it "Hurts my fingers".

    you know you replied to a post that was made 6 years ago right? and i totally disagree with you, i think starting on electric teaches bad technique because using distortion (and dont say you wont use distortion if you have the option too) covers up a lot of bad technique. if you quit because "it hurts my fingers" then you shouldnt have started in the first place.

    I rarely use distortion. I started on a strat then moved onto an acoustic and the transition was pretty smooth. And people who start usually quit for that reason "it hurts".
