Looks and sounds great but serious QC issues
Rafared, 31.12.2020
My first Epiphone and being honest I would be reluctant to buy another.
I accept Epiphones are great value and are often bought because of the price in comparison to equivalent Gibson models but at E599 this guitar is not cheap.
Lets get the positive out of the way first, it looks fantastic, I love the colour even if the top and back are only veneers it is still a very attractive guitar. The hardware all feels solid, the wiring is neat and the guitar stays in tune. Acoustically the guitar sings with great sustain, and plugged in a great range of warm full tones are at your fingertips.

Now the negative.......this guitar had the worst Fret job I've ever seen on a new Instrument. It has a serious case of fret sprout with edges like razor blades which would slice you open. I can't believe Thomann would send a guitar out in this condition to be honest. The frets were also very grubby and tarnished and badly in need of a good polish. To cap it all off it had 5 or 6 high frets which had to be leveled and crowned. I've had a couple of HB guitars and a G&L fallout from Thomann in the last year and all had better fretwork out of the box. Once the fret issues were addressed, which thankfully I could do myself, the neck needed a slight adjustment because it had no relief.
3 weeks on the neck has settled and with the fret ends filed and the high frets addressed, the frets polished and the board oiled the guitar feels and plays like it should.
The only cosmetic flaw I could find is a poorly finished painted edge to the F holes which you have to look closely to find.

To sum up.....If you want the looks and sounds of a 335 on a budget this Guitar is as close as it gets without the big price tag. Be aware you will be playing the "Epiphone" fret lottery though and may have to pay someone to make the guitar playable if you cannot sort the issues yourself.

Magnificent
Beauclerc, 07.01.2021
This guitar is nothing short of brilliant. I already owned the Epiphone Wildkat Royale so I was convinced of Epiphone being a wonderful brand prior to this purchase, but damn. They really knocked it out of the park with this one.

Beautiful paintjob, intricate details, the sound is warm and yet has a little.. 'snazz' to it. The body's on the large side, but I know that before buying, and it's also because I'm a fairly small person that that's a thing :-)

Love love LOVE it <3

Epiphone ES-335 Figured Blueberry Burst TOP!!!
Dan4u, 16.01.2021
Ich benutze diese Gitarre im privaten Eigengebrauch für Musikproduktion und Spiel. Bei der Verarbeitung habe ich einen Stern gestrichen, da das Pickup-Switch etwas wackelig ist, aber sonst die Verarbeitung TOP. Die Gitarre ist gut ausgeglichen und kam bereits in einer guten Einstellung.

Überragend gut
DocElm, 02.12.2020
Ich habe schon lange mit der 335 Blueberry von Gibson geliebäugelt, die es mittlerweile nur noch auf dem Gebrauchtmarkt gibt und (neu) das fünffache kostet.
Was soll ich sagen - ich bin überrascht, wie gut das Teil ist. Diese Gitarre steht dem großen G in nichts nach.
Es ist meine vierte Epiphone und die bisher eindeutig Beste. Spielt sich schon nach wenigen Stunden gefühlt besser als meine Gibson Paula - und die liebe ich.
Macht mir durch ihren offenen Klang im angezerrten und Rockbereich sogar mehr Spaß als die Paula.

Verarbeitung:
Ok, es ist nur ein Furnier, aber ansonsten ist alles hervorragend.
- Keine Macken, keine Dings oder Dongs im Lack. (Da hab ich schon neue Gibsons gesehen, die schlechter verarbeitet sind)
- tolle Maserung
- Bünde könnten noch etwas Politur vertragen
- Hals ist perfekt und super eingestellt
- Oktavreinheit ist fast perfekt
- Tuner sind leicht, geschmeidig und sind stimmstabil

Die Produktbilder hier geben in keinster Weise wieder, wie toll die in echt aussieht. Die Maserung ist auch an den Hörnern (da wo es nur lila aussieht ) top und die Rückseite ist auch eine Augenweide.

Sound:
Ich spiele eher Blues und Classic-Rock. Dafür ist sie perfekt und klingt warm und satt.
In härteren Gefilden verliert sie dann allerdings (wie sollte es anders sein) an punch und Druck.
Beide Tonabnehmer klingen toll. Gerade die Mittenposition hat etwas einzigartiges. Ansonsten schön warm/creamy am Hals und punchig/scharf am Bridge-PU.

Negativ:
Bisher konnte ich noch keine negativen Aspekte finden.

Fazit:
Eine super 335 für den Preis mit einem fantastischen Finish, super Bespielbarkeit und klasse Sound. Absolute Empfehlung.
