Roxy the Italian Greyhound relaxes on the lawn after playing fetch.

My pet and friend “Roxy” the Italian Greyhound doesn’t want to come in after playing fetch, she wants to relax on the hot lawn…she’s a great dog! A true 20mph couch potato.

Upgrade a cheap guitar or buy the Name Brand? Video comparing the tone of a Gibson Les Paul vs Upgraded Epiphone Les Paul

The question often arises as to whether it makes sense to upgrade a cheap or less expensive guitar or to save until you have the cash to buy the Name Brand?

This video compares the tone of a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus Top electric guitar with 57 Classic pickups vs a factory upgraded Epiphone Bonamassa Signature Les Paul with USA Burstbuckers, a #2 in the neck position and a #3 in the bridge position.

Both guitars have the same strings and are setup the same, meaning pickup height to bottom of the strings is the same and the volume and tone knobs are all at “ten”.

I play the same riff throughout so you can judge the sound, not the song or playing.

I start with the acoustic sound of the guitar, then all three pickup positions with some overdrive then all three pickup position with a clean amp that is a bit louder.

I finish up by playing a verse of “Stormy Monday” in the middle position on both guitars.
