    If it was Epiphone, it's an internationally recognized brand. If it's an Epephone, it's a copy. In either case, try and get someone who knows about guitars to take a look at it.


    You cannot modify a 6 string guitar into a 12 string one. 6 are enough to start with.

    Epiphone make awesome guitars.
    Yes, @bjr is right Epephone is a copy like Givson.
    But you're talking about Epephone right?
    And modifying 6 to 12? Oh! I haven't heard someone doing that.. :) simply buy 12 string if you need it.

    Yes thats good idea, many players do that. You can buy a good one after learning at the the cheap one. They start at a cheap plywood guitar.... my friends also do that.

    honestly i dont like indian guitars...
    If you spend some more bucks then you'll get a good gb&a guitar(import) but you can still get one at around 3k.
    There are some other brands like pluto, granada they are also good.

    If you are looking of these Guitar worth 3k, then IMHO just ignore all. Although for starting out anything that plays is good enough, as you will spend more time searching for a guitar than playing one.

    But I suggest with someone's guidance you can look for a used Granada or Pluto guitar, which will serve you well for a long time.
