Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? First of all, the Lucille is well-made, solid wood that provides a sweet sustain. I remember taking it out of the box that contained it, and just running my fingers over it, and couldn't wait to plug it in. Up and down, from the abalone inlays to the volume and tone nobs to the pickups and tuning pegs, it is a beautiful, solid, well-designed instrument. General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar is considered probably the best acquisition ever made. It's beautiful looking. It's beautiful sounding. It's beautiful handling. It's strong (oh you can definitely tell it's made of very good materials). It is a VERY GOOD instrument to PERFORM EXTREMELY WELL. You pick it up in your hands and you just cannot put it down. Yippy Kye Yay! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Depending on how I set my instrument, the tones varied greatly from very mellow to hot and spicy. I ran from jazz to country to folk to rock and the Lucille was right there with me the whole time. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It is a beautiful color, dark, smooth, as ebony should look, and the white finish really shows how professional the Epiphone people really are. You can tell a lot of care and attention to detail went into this instrument. I can't wait to get home and to play 'her' (Lucille) again!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? very well made for the price point. If properly taken care of like any good instrument should be, it will last a lifetime General Your general opinion of this product. Great quality/sound/playability for the dollars invested Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It can produce any variation of tone from bright and snappy to soft/warm and mellow to a Tele twang to a Strat tone with the use of the Varitone Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was great. Bindings are a vintage cream, the fretmarkers are done flawlessly with no fillers. The headstock inlays are superb.
Great guitar for the money!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is very good. Well worth the money. General Your general opinion of this product. I recently looked at the Gibson model of this guitar and I feel that the quality of this one is as good, if not better, than the Gibson. I wasn't sure about buying the Epiphone instead of the Gibson at first but I'm so glad I did now. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You can make this guitar do about anything you want it to do. There isa lot of options to tune in to the sound you want. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was beautiful on this guitar.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I think this guitar is very good quality, especially for the price. As far as dependability goes, as long as you treat it as an instrument and not try to drive tent stakes into the ground with it, this guitar should last. General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar plays great and has a vocabulary of sounds that is amazing. Plus, it feels as solid as any guitar I've ever played. The factory set up: intonation and action, were perfect right out of the box. Your general opinion of this product.

QUALITY:
great guitar good sound very light and durable
Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This guitar is an encyclopedia of tones. What can be done with combinations of the varitone, pick-up selection, as well as the tone controls for the pick-ups and pick-up volume is nothing short of amazing. The amp I use is a Rivera, it's a great match. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is rich and deep. As good as I've seen on any guitar.
