My first non-Fender in 36 years.
By: Kerry Learned from Washington State, USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Exceptionally well made for the price. I wish it was made in America. This is my first non USA made guitar in 36 years.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have played Fender guitars for 36 of my 45 years. I decided to buy a guitar for slide and choose an Epi figuring I'd replace it with a real Les Paul as my slide playing progresses. Not sure I'll need a "better" Les Paul as the quality is much better than expected especially for the price. I'm surprised to say I really like it.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Definitely a different sound than my Strats, a good different. Sustain is incredible a glued in neck makes a big difference. It has that Les Paul rock and roll sound, sounds great through my Blues Jr. with high gain OD.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Flawless. And I looked closely.
