Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This SG is well made and reminiscent of a 60's SG I had back in the day General Your general opinion of this product. Looks good and plays good Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? First P90 guitar in a very long time. Forgot how good these pickups sound Finish How did the stain or paint job look? No flaws in the finish

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? For an assembled in China instrument, very good. It will get the learning of Classic Rock riffs job done. Wasn't purchased to impress anyone. General Your general opinion of this product. I'm primarily a bass player who plays some 6-string guitar, and I wanted something different from Strat/Tele/Les Paul, etc. I tumbled the dice and won. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Still playing it w/o an amp with the stock strings still on it. Looking at small combo amps and even headphone amps, as I'm a tentant and loud is not an option. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Only one very petty issue: Sticker on pickguard left a round "haze" but that may disappear with a good polish/polish cloth.
Quality really nice, especially for the price

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The tuners are better than expected. I will be able to use them just fine as a professional. No problems at all so far, in general. General Your general opinion of this product. I was excited to be able to afford an SG. The P90 pickups are new to me and I can now see the attraction. Clear crisp sound without the muddiness, but a little fatter than my strat single coils. the extreme light weight is nice, and new to me as well (Strats and Les Pauls I've had were heavier) Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright and snappy. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is really great. flawless as far as I'm concerned but I don't use a magnifying glass to inspect the finish on any guitar. I've paid more $$ for slightly blemished instruments.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? TOP NOTCH CRAFTSMENSHIP. AGAIN, I CAN"T QUITE BELIEVE IT IS AN EPIPHONE! General Your general opinion of this product. I REALLY WAS NOT EXPECTING THE QUALITY AND CRAFTMENSHIP TO BE ON THIS LEVEL.THIS GUITAR REMINDS ME OF EPIPHONES OF THE SIXTIES..BRAVO! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? VERY RAUNCHY AND IN YOUR FACE TONE WHEN PUSHED,BUT ALSO HAS A VERY OPEN AIRY CLEAN TONE. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I ORDERED THE T.V. YELLOW,BUT THE FINISH TO ME ALMOST LOOKS GOLD.BUT IT IS VERY UNIQUE AND GORGEOUS.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Solid, yet light and well balanced feeling. Fret work on neck is A+. Neck binding too is a real nice touch and very well done. Great attention to detail. No flaws, overruns, or anything at all on mine. A much thinner poly finish too than I expected. Very Happy! General Your general opinion of this product. Well, all I can say is Epiphone has improved the past few years. This guitar is a real bargain. It will please even a discerning guitarist let alone a beginner (since its priced in the beginner category). I had to tweak the set up a bit, but otherwise sounds AND LOOKS great right out of the box. What a surprise. I can see the mahogony wood grain thru the thinner poly finish (A big plus!). I opted for the TV Yellow model. A mere 5.2 Lbs in weight, well balanced, and real good tone. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? As stated above. Real Good. Been playing off and on for decades. Have owned every guitar model and brand on the planet thru the years. This SG will hold its own guaranteed. BUY IT -you will not regret it for half a second! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Great. Better than I expected. Thinner poly than I expected. NO FLAWS ANYWHERE!
