This was my first electric guitar ever. I learned so many songs on this guitar including my first fingerstyle song, Blackbird, and my first solo, I Saw Her Standing There. Unfortunately I sold this guitar for a new Epiphone that I ended up selling as well a few years later. I now wish I had kept this guitar as a piece of my musical history. It was a great starter guitar, introducing me to that sweet sound of humbuckers. I would definitely recommend this as a first guitar, and if you've had one for a while, I suggest you hold on to it for future reference to your early years of playing guitar.
Used to be my #1, now used as a secondary guitar for songs in half-step-down tuning. Got this second-hand from a guitar shop owner near my house who advertised it on Craigslist. Previous owner swapped the pickup for a Duncan Phat Cat and the stock potentiometers for CTS ones, resulting in a clear and punchy tone that works extremely well with my VT30.
I've got this one in black. I changed the pick-up with a seymour duncan custom zebra humbucker and it's great. I like the sound and feel of the guitar. But the bridge and tuners will be changed it the near future, because they are not top quality to say the least.
good giutar, but I prefer 2 pickups (humbuckers). I like the pickup it has, but it doesn't sound the same. If you're looking for gear used by a famous artist, Billie Joe Armstrong uses this alot.
