I bought an Epi Traditional Pro (no letters or numbers) from a slick deal back in 2016. That had a pickguard and I'm not sure how this compares exactly.The one I bought was also $300 but it was selling for more lately.

Its been a solid guitar. Stays in tune and has a nice low action. Sometimes the low E string can have a buzz if I hit it wrong, but that happens with a humidity change. I dont hear the buzz with an amp.I was able to learn better on this than the dreadnought I first bought. Mine is heavy and the neck is thick/wide. Good bending guitar. It has a satin finish that has nice slide when hot etc. I haven't had any cracks or crazing in surfaces

That is also terrible for your credit, but you do you.
Thats a subjective statement. I work for wells fargo.

Really depends on your financial situation and near future plans. Taking a credit hit is a very common strategy and beneficial for many depending on their current debt/income and near future financial plans.

That's an extremely close minded/poor minded thing to say of you...

Can you please stop annoying us/hijacking this thread with incorrect information, but no one cares to hear it even if it was right.

Please give input on some epiphones and gibson..

I'd like to know if theres a better guitar for a bit more investment than $300?

Thank you kindly in advance.

Hope all credit-related conversations are over lol.

Is this a decent guitar to start with?
Yes any Epiphone would be a decent guitar, period. Many world-famous musicians use Epiphone guitars. A not-so-great example would be the Beatles (because that was a long time ago and who knows what's changed since then).

Gibson owns Epiphone, and generally would not let a piece of shit guitar get sold under their name.

I have an Epiphone Flying V guitar made with Korina wood and the quality, sound, and all is excellent. However I wouldn't recommend that particular shape of a guitar for beginner, because you can't really play it sitting down like most other shapes of guitars.

I should add a note that when I bought a guitar (Epiphone Les Paul Trad Pro) in 2016 from these people, the guitar arrived in a Gibson box, and only later did I realize the guitar was a return/floor sample etc. and that there were items missing. It was my first guitar, and I knew Epiphone was associated with Gibson so I didn't suspect the Gibson box at the time. The guitar itself has been fine since then.

That's a bit of a leap. There's a reason Gibson has hit hard times and is scrambling to create some buzz with newer lines of old guitars.

I have heard of Gibson QC issues. However I've also read sales of electric guitar's were down for awhile. People wanted to learn acoustic and be the next Swift/Sheeran. Rock music is moribund. Gibson was also politically persecuted:

Owned by, made by, dont get a credit card... There is too much hostility, nit picking, and misinformation in this thread.

I play others instruments, but I'm thinking about another electric guitar. I used to have an early 2k wine red Gibson LP Studio. How would this compare? I may not play it much, so this or spring for another Gibson. I've also looked at older Korean and Japan LP's.

A few months ago I bought the Traditional PRO-III Plus ... I think the difference is it has Gibson pickups. What I really like about this line of guitar is the versatility of having two coil-split pickups. You can have a single coil + a humbucker at the same time and use the volume knobs to get any mix you want of the two sounds.

Yiur Traditional Pro III Plus is twice the price of this sale.

Gibson pickups alone are more expensive than this sale price ($300), plus you have few other upgrades.

Yea well, guitar music isn't as popular as it was in 2008, much less than the 80s and 90s. For all intents and purposes hip hop is king of the charts and rock is dead.

I have been a guitarist for 20 years and even I will admit most of my new work is heavily keyboard, drum machine, and computer based, although guitars and electric basses do get used here and there.

True enough but the funny thing is that the highest grossing tours are still mostly more traditional acts.
