Could be a number of things... 1) Go to you local Maplins, Radio Shack etc. and ask for a can of 'switch cleaner'. Remove the plastic knob from the splined shaft, unscrew the scratchplate from the guitar body, and spray the switch cleaner at and into the volume control pot. Wait a few minutes, then rotate the control from full to minimum several times, then see if that has cured the problem. If this doesn't work then... 2) You may have a 'dry' solder joint on the volume pot; It will need re-soldering. Get an expert to do it, unless you REALLY know what you're doing. or 3) The volume control needs replacing. Again, a job for an expert, or VERY good DIY'er. Hope this helps, phil

What is generally good about Epiphone guitars?

Well, for one there super cheap. Secondly, they tend to play about as good as a Gibson, compairing the Standard Gibson with the Epiphone, and thirdly, they sound good with pretty much any amp, they can be used for almost any type of music, and are quite a bit lighter, weight wise, than a gibson. From a personal standpoint, I have a couple guitars, and one of them is the Epiphone Les Paul Special II, Another is the Dean Vendetta Camo, I play them on a Line6 spider III, and the Epiphone has more tone for metal, the epiphone has more tone for solos, the epiphone sounds better on the clean channel, (but only when play rythm) and it looks alot better than the Dean, now I know there are some differences between the two, but I do preffer the Epiphone over the Dean, however to be fair, I will say this, the Dean has a MUCH faster neck than the Epiphone, and the Dean's all (even the cheapest, most crapy playing) have 24 fretts to Epiphone's (all that I know of) 22 frets. I am going to turn the Dean guitar in for Epiphone Standard Les Paul, but first I will change the pickups in the epiphone for Gibsons, just for Giggles. And I'll update when I do.

Gibson or epiphone?

Usually, there would not be enough information in this question to answer. But no matter in what way you're phrasing it, I could give a decent answer. Gibson has two makers of guitars: Gibson USA, and Gibson Custom. Epiphone, in fact, is also a maker of Gibson guitars. Going on their site, you may notice that they sell Les Pauls and SG's (for example) for Gibson USA, Gibson Custom, and Epiphone. And they are both equal in quality as far as playability, but for looks it just depends on what you're in to.
