Plays like double the price
What is your opinion of this product?
Bought this guitar as a backup. Quickly after getting it out of the box and playing it became obvious this guitar was way better than the price! Good action,nice tone and not too heavy. Great for everyone from beginners to seasoned hands!

Love this.... but....
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this Epi SG Special... and AMS... not so much with the person who put this together that thought I'd like it setup as a slide guitar... the strings were waay too high... it should say somewhere what gauge strings come on these guitars... I immediately changed to EB 9's... after lowering the action, trying to set the intonation, the high E can't be adjusted further... I don't try to adjust neck relief myself, so it's going to co$t me more... a much better inspection at the Indonesian plant could very easily solve these things... how long would it take at the plant to ensure the strings are not too high? so I took off a star aimed at Epiphone, not AMS

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT...
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the best guitar for the price the I've ever bought. I own other beloved epiphones/ gibsons and this $180 guitar compares nicely. I'm seriously awestruck at the quality. Perfect right out of the box. No imperfections to the body and plays and feels amazingly. I only wish this had been my first guitar. Was torn with which one to buy and ended up with the ebony one. Will be buying the cherry on soon before epiphone comes to their senses and hike up the price.

Plays incredibly well for an entry-level guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I would recommend this to any guitar students, the neck plays so easily you'd think it would cost hundreds more!

Way more than I expected.
What is your opinion of this product?
Excellent craftsmanship, flawless finish, smooth frets.. only had to tweak the bridge height slightly.. sounds as great as it looks. To sum it all up, I would buy 2 more if I could figure out a way to play them all at once... maybe 4 more hands?....

Actually not a bad investment
What is your opinion of this product?
Just got mine today about 10:00 AM! Their 2 day mail is no joke, Thanks AMS. The guitar was set up out of the box. New tuners of course and a set of Super Slinkies and was off to the races!not that Angus sound but close enough for practice & jamming. Another thing most reviewes forgut to mention is the neck and body joint. Its part set and part bolt on! Genius; the best of both worlds. Get one today Great affordable way to get an authorized entry level SG!!!
