‘Gibson-ising’ and Epiphone
When a customer comes to you and says “are you able to turn my Epiphone into a Gibson?”, generally the first response is going to be “No..”, or “just go buy a Gibson?!”
But, when the guitar holds a fair amount of sentimental value to the owner (their first good guitar), and just wants to make it look the part, ‘no’ just doesn’t constitute as an answer! So this is what we ended up doing!
The guitar was an Epiphone G-400, Epiphone’s version of an SG. What the owner wanted was a Gibson shaped headstock, and Gibson style fingerboard binding!
