Just What I Wanted
I play a 60's era Epiphone Cortez and wanted something inexpensive for traveling. Though the tone isn't as seasoned or complex as the Cortez, I like everything about the EL-00. Very comfortable neck, especially for short hands, light weight, and plenty loud enough for a jam session. I ordered it with the TUSQ nut, but found the tone really improved when I installed a bone saddle and switched to medium-light strings. The sunburst is beautifully done, and overall it looks and feels like a much more expensive guitar. Just a great, everyday player.
