General Your general opinion of this product. Cannot find a flaw. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems to be well made. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Anywhere from hot to super jazz mellow. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Absolutely beautiful. Cannot find a flaw. I have the vintage sunburnt.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes. Only flaw was that two of the block inlays were just a little off center. General Your general opinion of this product. Very nice guitar. I cut the nut slots a little deeper and lowered the action just a bit. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone with the new Epi pickups is brighter than those Eps made a few years ago. But you can roll off the tone and volume to achieve a more mellow tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is really good, much better than you will find on most Gibson guitars today.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I've had this guitar for many years in the Natural color, and just got another in Cherry and the quality is very good. Not perfect but almost. Way more than you would expect for the price. This guitar has been very dependable for me. General Your general opinion of this product. Epiphone makes the best semi hollow body guitar in this price range. They sound and look almost as good as the original ones by Gibson. Unless you have them side by side you just about can not tell the difference,and for sure most the audience at a show would not be able to tell the difference. They look and fill like the $2500 versions by Gibson. The sound is just as nice. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The sound is warm. It can be Bright and Snappy or Dark and Smooth with a few tweaks to the knobs of the guitar or your amp. You can get just about any sound you want with this ax. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish on both of mine are very nice. Beautiful to say the least. Very minor imperfections that you really have to look for to see. No one would ever notice. Almost perfect and way better than you would ever to expect from a guitar in the price range.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The build quality of the body and neck are great. Everybody knows what you get when you buy an Epiphone, a guitar that needs new parts. Put them in and you won't be sorry. General Your general opinion of this product. As it comes from the factory, it's an Epiphone. All the usual things that implies apply. Cheap pickups and pots, plastic nut, so and so forth. But what you do get is a guitar that is very upgradable, for a great price. I completely rebuilt mine. A 59 in the neck a Pearly Gates in the bridge, a Ghost system piezo in a new bridge with a new tail piece. All new pots and wiring. And a graphite nut. It's now the coolest Epiphone you ever seen. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Stock tone was horrible. Built it to my tastes and its awesome. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I got the natural finish and put zebra pickups in it replaced all the hardware with black chrome hardware and it looks amazing. I also put the quick switch for the piezo where the input jack was and moved that to the side where it would be on a paul.
A great guitar for most any style. Awesome for jazz, blues and classic rock.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems pretty solid. I'm sure this guitar will last for decades with proper care. General Your general opinion of this product. While a noob to guitars, I have been playing music for over 40 years and I find this guitar very easy to play. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Dark and smooth. I can actually get really close to that 70's Pat Metheny sound when he still played a Gibson with a Roland JC120 amp and various delays. And of course it is all over that John Scofield jazz/funk sound! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Cherry looks amazing. Originally was going to go with the vintage sunburst till I saw a Gibson 335 in cherry and blew me away!
