I purchased this guitar used for a great price. I don't know if the previous owner had a pro set up done on it but the action and intonation was darn near perfect. The fit and finish are beautiful, nice binding. The slim taper neck profile fits my hands well and makes it easy to play.
The pickups have a nice range of tone, not muddy or overly bright. I haven't had a chance to experiment with the split coil option much, but it's an option that may grow on me.
I bought the Epi hard shell case for it and I also have a gig bag to keep it protected in different situations.
I'm very happy with it and still would be even if I had paid full price.
Comfortable neck, good pickups, very well built with awesome finish. This guitar brings a large number of qualities for a low price. When I took it to my luthier, he had a Gibson 339 at the same day, so we compared it. The only difference we noticed was the sound of the pickups, while Epihone's were more bright, Gibson were more fuller sounding. It doesn't mean Epiphone pickups are bad, they are just different. Kept the originals anyway, they sound perfect with my gear.
I got this on July 2016, and it's one of the best sounding guitars I've ever played! It's really good for Jazz and Blues, but it's also great for all sorts of Rock, from Classic to Hard Rock... it can even play Metal! Amazing quality and feel, excellent finish and really cool looks, very classy! If you ever see one, grab it... 10/10
