Epiphone Century VS - Great vintage looks and tone and also something a bit different

27.02.2017
Firstly I must say thank you for the usual professional service from thomann. Excellent throughout from ordering to delivery, kept informed at each stage and extremely well packaged, so the guitar arrived in perfect order.

I am a self taught intermediate bedroom player, so by no means an expert, but I do have other guitars and the Century in unlike any of them. Unplugged it has a bright but woody acoustic tone, quite loud and the maple wood gives great resonance. It has the feedback associated with fully hollow body guitars, but I kind of like that as it gives it a unique and vintage sound. Great for strumming or picking. The p90 pickup gives a bright and clear tone when plugged in to my Vox AC4 amp, and with some overdrive gives a nice growl when digging into the strings. Only having one pickup is no problem I have found as you can control the tone via the volume and tone controls, plus the amps eq settings and the use of stomp boxes of your choice too.
I almost went for a Casino, but opted for the Century as it has character all of it's own. The Vintage finish is very nice too, a smooth satin finish, not aged or relic'd in any way, but it does have a vintage vibe about it.

The only thing I 'may' change is the white plastic nut, I might get a aged looking graptech one to see if that adds to the sound and it will look better too, but thats just a small personal thing really, the guitar is excellent all round.

So all in all I am very pleased with my purchase, and would recommend the Century to anyone looking for something a little different for their collection.

I would also highly recommend thomann too.
Thank you

My new Epiphone Century VS, Great ...............

02.04.2017
Reception and packing of the 2 packages guitar + case 20/20
As usual Thomann via UPS = PRO RAS.

Good this guitar sounds very well after a few adjustments
First of all, the adjustment of the
Then replace the strings as the original one
playable but not acceptable for me!
advise you to release the nut of the handle, this one withdraws by exerting strongly on the top (vulgar quality
low end). So a graphtect nut will be much better.

I find the handle pleasant to play. The micro P90 pro
really nice! Biensur with a tube amp and a
good reverb, you have to discover the sound quite particular
of this Century.How to say, forget your strat, tele, paul etc ... and rediscover a blues / jazz / acoustic sound
I'm a fan. For my part
I use it with many pedals and also with a
multi-effect boss.Guitar lightweight and comfortable body.
To conclude i like it ......................
