I met Jeff in the back alley for a smoke, and asked him if he would sell me his personal touring guitar, and would he take a personal cheque for it? Yes, and yes. Right fuckin on! after the cheque cleared he sent me the guitar, along with a bunch of swag, T-shirt, picks, cd's, posters, stickers, all signed. (now I got like a little Jeff Waters shrine happening) I've always been skeptical of epiphone, but this is not a cheap foreign guitar, or at least it doesn't act like one. Intonation is spot on, tunes easy, great sustain, holds a tune, and feels great! THANKS JEFF!
