Excellent value for low price
Your general opinion of this product.
Definitely a must buy. Right size so you can play at home or travel with it.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I just got it, but it looks to be pretty well made to me. I also own a Epi Les Paul Special II, and have found Epiphone to make quality products no matter which factory they are made in.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I find the tone to be bright with just a bit of twang. The nice thing is that you can coil tap and go from a humbucker to single coils, or do one pick up with each. The pickups are fine to start out with but I may consider an upgrade later as I define my sound, as well as to change the aesthetics a bit.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I got the Pelham Blue and it is definitely a must buy. It is almost transparent so you see a bit of the wood grain, but it has the classic look to it that is gorgeous. The only thing I would have changed would have been the black pickguard. Would have looked better with a cream or white colored pickguard.
best deal of the year
