Surprisingly good

Wolfram G., 30.11.2016
I play guitar for 40 years and my collection consists of 18 guitars from Framus from the sixties to Guild, Gibson and Yamaha. Always looking for extravagant sounds. Apart from the bridge insert (I exchanged the same) and the bad machine heads, the guitar already has a special sound. Good performance in live operation, speaks well and looks very good.

One step from the acoustic world.

_Roberto_, 26.07.2017
I say so. The "fit" of this guitar is exceptional. And for fit, I mean just how you are wearing it and what the handle is. It is a great guitar however I would not advise only children or very small people. The keyboard is wonderful. I've had and have many guitars, acoustic and electric, and this is the third best keyboard ever (after a Fender telecaster with maple keyboard and an old Gibson 355 with ebony keyboard, just like this one). The feeling is clearly that with an electric, with a bigger strings a bit thicker, that reminds you that you actually have an acoustics in your hand.
It is a very fine guitar, all very accurate at the usual sore points but overall it has the taste of a toy guitar. I took VS painted version, maybe you should point to Natural to see a less "gummy" paint?
We come to the sound. I first compared it without jack with my Martin, so a somewhat inhuman comparison however I find very good functions of these times.
You see, in comparison, it's actually a guitar that has abandoned the sound of the Gibson Hollow body and has approached the acoustic world but, although it is actually more balanced in tones than the smaller Epiphone sisters (Zenith, etc.), the Deluxe There is an acoustic guitar playing "cold".
Beauty happens when you attack the jack. Here a wonderful jazz world opens up. Finally an es-175 that sounds really good! Take it as a joke, yet in my jokes a truth bottom you find it always. The problem in this guitar is to try to close the tones, not to invent how to open them.
So jazz and I let myself ... even blues.
So there is a plug-in guitar, which while studying can stay without amplifier, because it's worth playing this way too and why you can take it and bring it anywhere.
Also in my opinion it is a shame not to take it with his custody, but I appreciate that a home-maker gives you the chance to spend less.

I think the focal point when you buy this tool is:
"One step away from the acoustic world is a wonderful electrical world that awaits us".

Good study at all!
