A steal!I went into this purchase a little skeptical because of all the reviews I've read on other sites saying there was a ton of fret buzz.
My sales engineer assured me that fret buzz is something they check on the 55 Point inspection and that if there was a problem they would fix it.
Received the guitar today, and it is perfect. No buzz at all!
The guitar itself is the best value in an electric guitar you can get. The probucker pickups sound awesome and really full and the Nanoag acoustic pickup does its job well as well.
Overall, if you're looking for a guitar that is packed with technology and won't kill your bank account this is it.
AND BUY FROM SWEETWATER.

This is a Home Run by EpiphoneI was pleased from the time I removed the guitar from the box. Itís the EXACT guitar represented in the picture when I chose it by serial number on the web-site. Kudos to Sweetwater for that!!!
As for the guitar, itís not an American made Gibson and I didnít expect one. Iíve got them to compare and there is a difference but hey, for this price point Iím very happy. For playability, I did do a little set up of the neck to my preference and it plays and sounds great. The Humbucking pickups are great; the nanomag in particular is an awesome feature. And with the three different outputs, Humbucking, nanomag or both, and the USB, this is a real gem. And Gibson doesnít even offer a guitar like this for any price.
The only complaint I have is with the strap buttons. On all of my guitars, I install the Dunlop Dual Design Straplock on them for versatility but when I pulled the back one off, two strips of wood fell out of the screw hole and now no screw will fit. Rather than try to repair it, I just drilled a new hole about a half inch from the old one and Iím good with that. I would have hated to have tested the strap on-stage though.
Overall, this is a great guitar for the price.
