General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is a great guitar at an awesome price. It is way above any higher end Epiphone. Love this guitar. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Solid built. It should last a long time. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Great low action right out of the box. Super fast smooth neck. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The stock pickups are great as is. I play in a Punk Rock N ' Roll band and they compliment our sound very well. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Mine is in Cherry Sunburst and it is absolutely beautiful. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The best guitar I've played in its price range. Playability How was the action out of the box? Low Acton with only slight fret buzz. Fixed that in 10 minutes though.

General Your general opinion of this product. I simply LOVE both guitars . i own both the worn in ice tea and beautifully finished cherry suburst models and love them equally ! I also own a stratocaster, SG, ibanez RG, and a many others . The EC 256 has re-energized my playing and has become my go to guitar of choice for ALL applications ! I have played the guitar for over 50 years and professionally since the 6th grade. I've owned just about all of them with many of them come and gone over the years. I am still stunned at what wonderful guitars these are , and just an UNBELIEVABLE BARGAIN for the money. I am amazed at how you do it !!! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? These guitars are extremely well made - i was shocked at the attention to detail . The worn in finish on the ice is very comfortable , realistic , and very low maintainance as far as polishing and appearance. The cherry finish is just imaculate and totally flawlessly beautiful-incredible craftmanship and attention to detail is levels above my other guitars. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I love all the variations of tone i can achieve with the coil splitting feature - THE perfect crossover instrument for me. Before this i was a lifetime strat fanatic . The pick ups are unique sounding and i wouldn't dream of changing them. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The worn in distressed ice tea is very comfortable and does give it the feel of an old well broken in favorite- and again , requires just a quick wipe now and then. Nice to have a guitar i don't have to worry about banging around a little. The cherry finish rivals that of guitars costing thousands more and is just totally flawless. What a nice suprise i never expected for a guitar in this price range. The neck and body binding are expertly applied. Just beautiful !
