A stunning guitar with a really beautiful sound

Pete-plays-guitar, 28.05.2017
I have had my trusty Yamaha APX for many year now. For recording (with the sound hole cover) or live plugged in, it is really nice, but for playing acoustically, it sounds like a shoe box with rubber bands (sorry but that is my view).

So I was looking for a new large body acoustic to play (lost my previous one in a fire) both plugged in and acoustically. I read and looked at many reviews and took the plunge for this Epiphone. I decided on the natural colour rather than the sunburst, as I think this colour suits the guitar more.

Firstly the neck it is a very thin neck, not as much as an electric but not much more and feels a thousand miles away from a classical guitar neck. But is a really comfortable neck and not an acoustic where the action becomes massive past the 12 fret, it is easy to play even right up the neck.

The large body gives plenty of mid and low frequencies providing a very full sound and I still get shivers whenever I play this loud as it has a really fantastic sound.

When plugged in, this guitar provides a whole range of new possibilities with the piezo and magnetic pickups you can tailor a wide range of tonal possibilities, where you can mix them precisely to achieve your perfect tone.

For this price range I don't think there is anything that comes close with this sound, until you get near the 1000? mark. I don't really have any bad things to say about this guitar.

For a full sounding, very acoustically loud guitar with a really beautiful tone, this is your guitar.

Highly recommended

---------------

One year on update. I think this is one of the best sounding acoustic guitar I have played. I have used it with a microphone and also through the 'double' pickups, straight into a guitar amp and it sounds simply stunning. For the price I think nothing comes near this guitar. One of my best purchases.

Remarkable quality, great price, great service

Dazmulls, 16.06.2016
A beautifully made guitar. I would normally lower the action on most of my guitars but this one is near perfect straight out of the box. Well packed for transit by Thomann.... Big thumbs up guys!!! Exceptional guitar at a great price into the bargain and excellent service from Thomann. My first purchase from this company and I am a very happy boy...... 04/08/2017 quick update, Have my epi nearly a year playing most days, and have been hugely impressed with the build quality of this thing. Amazing quality and built to last.
