Best Guitar for under $150 [Guitar, Rock 'n Roll]

Epiphone Les Paul Special I w/P90's.  It's less than $150 bux at Musician's Friend.
 When you buy look for a discount code  or just punch any made up or old code it and when it doesn't work, use the automatic chat and ask for a new code and you'll be given a 10% discount code.  Works every time.  You get the $139 guitar for $116.  Gotta love Musicians Friend!



Take out old bridge pickup and install a GFS or Gibson (Get used on Ebay for <$50.00).

It will play and sound as good if not better than anything out there.

But, the bridge pickup's gotta go.  While it's good or passable, I say junk it.  We want a rock 'n roll machine here and although the Epiphone is a good product, I'll bet that they save their money or make some of their profit in the pickup department.

Finally, believe it or not, rewiring makes a WORLD of difference.  I wouldn't believe this myself except for the fact that I did it just to do it and was amazed at the difference in the sound quality.  It takes the articulation/clarity level to an amazing degree.  Why?  I don't know but it works!  Do it and you'll be amazed at what you will get for less than $150 and a little work.
