Reliability How has it stood up over time? I got what I expected as I always have from Epiphone. They honestly need to upgrade their inspection and setup procedures as I've always had to tweak out their acoustic guitars. General Your general opinion of this product. I love this guitar. I bought one right out of the store, got it home and took out the bridge shim, lowered the action and presto, I lost three frets at the 13, 14 15th fret. I replaced a new shim and regained all but the 13 and 14th on the high E. The frets were horrible at the ends but a little smooth filing and I smoothed it out, so it plays nice with d addario 10-47 strings. The acoustic volume is awesome and has that great slope shouldered Gibson sound. I'm happy now, but I must say beware of the necks on these things. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Its a comfortable guitar and the neck is great, either for a beginner or an old picker like myself. The controls for me are very tiny and with bifocals, are difficult to get used to. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I play through my PA and like it dark and smooth. The shadow electronics are good enough to get you what you want. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Mostly very good except for sloppy work at the end of the neck and sound hole. The neck is really smooth! Overall, the sunburst is gorgeous. Action How was the action out of the box? As I said, I lowered it first thing and screwed it up, so I got to say it was set good if you leave it alone. Action is a matter of taste and experience.
