Hey all - after a 20 plus year hiatus I got back into learning guitar midway through 2022. At the time I just sort of randomly purchased a Squier Telecaster and amp off Facebook. I lucked out that it ended up feeling really good in my hands and that I enjoyed it quite a bit.
I’ve loved reigniting my passion for music and guitar (though I wish my talent matched my ability) and the lessons by Justin have been a huge reason why.
Anyhow, after six months I decided maybe it was time to explore getting a new guitar. Some thing I took the time to play and try out instead of a used Facebook purchase.
After trying several different brands and models of various guitars, last night I found what I wanted.
I considered and tried several different things. Everything from Jazzmasters, Strats, maybe an upgraded Telecaster, Les Pauls (Epiphone), and a few other Semi-Hollows such as the Riviera and a Gretsch or two. Since I already have the solid body that I do enjoy playing I decided to go with something fairly different. Semi-hollow vs solid body, humbuckers vs single coil, etc.
Plus, with any luck I’ll continue improving and continue my journey and there will be plenty of time to upgrade and celebrate another NGD in the future!
Congratulations! That’s a beautiful instrument.
New Epiphones are great and really pretty. I have an SG '61 and I loved to just look at it.
And red 335 (45/55) is one of my dream guitars. Yeah, Marty McFly and Chuck Berry did a pretty good job engraving this iconic look into my brain, but no complains here.
