Nice guitar for the price

For what it is, this guitar is excellent. I needed something to replace a couple guitars that were stolen from me last year. One was a Fender Strat, the other an older Gibson Les Paul Custom (weep). This was my price point, so replacing my Gibson will have to wait. This model has some nice appointments not usually found on guitars in this price range. It seems to play really well through different genres, and the neck is fast. The satin finish on an already thin neck is wonderful for me. I can pretty much shred on this thing.Jared Kalish and Chris Sanders were there every step of the way to ensure quality control and customer satisfaction. Thanks a bunch. The guitar came ready to play right out of the box. Nice to have it inspected before shipping. Take it from me, most places fail miserably in the pre shipping inspection area.Either way, I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed with this guitar for the price. Also, there is a plek'd version of this guitar available for an extra $150. Hope this helps.Cheers

Sweet Axe

Amazing!This guitar is solid as a rock and beautifully crafted. Setup was great straight out the box. The finish is flawless. I mean this guitar is really pretty! The gold hardware really makes the cherry sunburst pop and I love the color accented knobs. Coil tapping pups add a cool tonal dimension. I own two Gibson LP's and this guitar is a welcome addition to the arsenal. Amazing guitar. Amazing Gearfest deal.Big thanks to Greg Baum and the entire Sweetwater staff. I had a blast! This is an incredible group of folks.Chuck Surack for President!Rock on.

nice guitar!

Very nice guitar. well made with an eye to the detail.Book matched maple front triple line body trim, very nice and great finish. Fret markers are classy as is the head stock.s look. It sounds great with many different tones to be had. The neck is very thin, like a tele and wil take some time t get used to it. it is fast and easy but different than my other guitars. great price for the quality

Amnazing Guitar, WORLD CLASS service

This guitar looks and plays amazing. I was torn between the EX model (EMG's) and the Gibson USA pickups, but I like the finish on the GX so I went with this model. . Well the pickups dont disappoint! and this way you get the coil splitting of the push/pull pots. Im happy with the quality of all components, and the case is very nice as well. as for service, the setup is great and thhe guitar was polished up nicely! . I had a small issue on the guitar, which is acceptable by Epiphone standards, and Sweetwater was QUICK to get me a replacement and ship the old one back at no cost (Thanks Dave M for personalty inspecting the others in stock to ensure I wasn't getting another with the same issue! ) . Im in Ohio, so I got the guitar the next day after setting up the replacement (thanks Marty F.!!!) . AND I did all of this with email, I never once picked up the phone, and they all responded within hours , sometimes minutes. The service is unmatched. there is no company on this planet, with this selection of gear, at these prices, that you can get an email back so quickly and get what you asked for!
