What is your opinion of this product?
The Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-160e with a Solid Spuce Top and a p-100 humbucker p/u that does not buzz like it was hot wired in 1954 is a much better bargain. Tried to find out why Gibson who actually makes both of these guitars one in the U.S.A. & the Epiphone in China would charge 10x's more for a much lesser quality guitar and got no response. The Beatles were great, but my guess is they would have opted for the Epiphone as well. This guitar is fine, however not worth $3,200. Sorry this guitar is stuck in 1962 technology. I do like the adjustable saddle, don't understand why Gibson/Epiphone changed this? Especially when the p/u is outside the guitar. In colder weather most guitars here in MI. require constant saddle adjustments. I love the Epiphone though it has been much improved and well worth $400 buck.
