Quite certain those were being made in the Epi factory, so same kind of "quality" there.

Indonesian workmanship is really good, but the wood used in those is just firewood of awful quality. I just sold my indonesian Hamer, which was perfectly built but had zero tonal qualities.


Yeah that makes sense. I know the "mahogany" used on Epiphone Les Pauls is a cheaper wood. It is an Asian wood called Luan that has similar tonal properties and densities as mahogany, but is not part of that species of wood. I have a Gibson Les Paul but the majority of my collection of guitars are in the $1000-$1500 range. Mostly I'm a collector of firewood...lol. Maybe it's better to have less guitars but higher quality ones. scratch_head

Definitely, but you'll always have some firewood to mess around with, try out mods and repairs etc. I also have 4-5 such laying around and can't get rid of them. As long as you don't need an extra room for them, all is fine :)

Yeah I have about 8 guitars at the moment. I can't really go too much higher than that. Or could I? scratch_head I'm happy with that number and I try to rotate them a bit.
