My wife’s friend is buying her husband a guitar to get him started playing guitar. She asked for some suggestions and I provided a few. In the end the decision was hers. She settled on the (Epiphone Slash AFD performance packhttps://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjblOe0gv3TAhWJSiYKHTZhBnAQFgh_MAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.guitarcenter.com%2FEpiphone%2FSlash-AFD-Les-Paul-Performance-Pack-1395853392707.gc&usg=AFQjCNGo62_4uoxY-f1sFkAY_qX5DhZdoA&sig2=zS_LuwcgdBcQvH5WwemPQA). I think she made the right decision. In this video I am going to check this thing out. I am mostly interested in the guitar. I will tear this thing down, give it a full setup, and test it out to see how it sounds.
