People are right about it

Nikolaev88, 11.01.2018
This morning i received this guitar.What can i say...i'm staying hungry because this guitar is AWESOME!I'm not a professional player, i'm still somewhere in the beginning, but i can surely tell that this guitar is top class.When i opened it it was packed really good, it was pleasure to unbox it.The guitar is so nice for the hand - that smooth satin feeling! What can i say about the looks? Well, to summarize it in one word -beautiful! The sunburst color really gives it this retro look, almost like you're looking at history.(it is better in person) The line in the back gives it some creativity i really like it. When i tuned the guitar and i played the first chord i just stood there smiling ( we all know this feeling, when the guitar is real good)

I bought the guitar based on Thomann reviews and i contacted Thomann's people.Once again I'm amazed by the dedication of the people who work there.Everything was 10/10 with the service from order to delivery

PROS:
Looks good
Sounds good
Feels good
Smells good
You will look good with it

CONS:
"Made in China" sticker which was annoying to remove

Great quality ELECTRO Acoustic from Epiphone

Strummer, 12.05.2017
Ordered this DR-500MCE VS to play in our Function Band, mainly for ballads, and country.
It was so good looking and sounded so good plugged in, our bass player liked it so much, he bought the natural version!
I like that it has two pickups, one can be used in a electric guitar amp, for using different tones and distortions.
The other can go into my Roland acoustic 90 amp, or into the mixing desk, or using the blend control you can mix the two how you want, creating different timbre''s.
I can't fault it acousticly, or plugged in, and now I've played it for about a year, It's sounding better as the top is bedding in.
So easy to play, if your used to an electric guitar neck, this neck will be an easier transition for you.
This Masterbuilt' guitar is certainly my best acoustic, and It covers everything I need in a spades. Can't find any con's.
A "pleke'd neck, bone saddle and nut, duel pickups, inbuilt precision tuner and Epiphone quality..just great!
