Nice. A good mid range guitar of the g'n'r ilk. I have a burgundy epi LP studio amongst others. They play nicely. Did he give you and amp that goes up to 11?

Unusual, anyway... I bet it sounds OK, though the looks are not really to my taste. There's one for sale here for £250... http://www.strungoutguitars.com/Electric/

Can you play either, or were they bought "just because?" A dirt cheap headphone amp would get you going in the meantime (not sure how well it'd work with the bass mind you.) I normally just use a Korg Pandora I've had for at least 15 years along with some decent headphones and it sounds pretty good, also avoids waking the family and annoying the neighbours!
