Friendly

Flave, 07.08.2012
A nice guitar to play! The handle is pretty well set and it looks nice!
The orange color is amazing! , But really only reveals itself in the light of the sun! It sounds good on amp, on the other hand I would not say the same thing in acoustics! The rolling bridge has a tendency to vibrate on certain frequencies!

Otherwise the brilliant trick I find, Epiphone supplied with the guitar, a table (or finger rest) in Plexiglas with all the fixing system! So free to us to fix it or not ^^!

All in all I am really happy!

A good guitar for a short but improved price

Juan Ignacio F., 07.07.2012
Another success of EPI, BUT with some glue.

Everything on this guitar pleases in terms of the amount paid, except for the BIGSBY that broke the second day (without exaggeration).

It carries a bigsby of the narrow lever that not only is VERY uncomfortable when saving the guitar in the case, but also is uncomfortable when it comes to playing - it is always in the middle; Very hard and unmanageable - but also broke a nut from under the lever, leaving me with a "dead" half. Now you have to decide whether to delete the Bigsby and put tune-o-matic or put Bigsby again, bringing the initial price, in less than two months will happen to a couple of hundred more between add-ons and luthier!

It would be more effective for this guitar to be sold WITHOUT bigsby at a better price and with Bigsby from the good ones at another price for whoever was interested. The solution EPI has adopted is NOT correct.

Otherwise a recommended guitar, more rockabilly than Jazz.
