Bargain of the decade
Years ago, actually decades ago, I felt that Epiphone was an inferior, low-end guitar brand. In spite of my old memories, I decided to buy a cherry red ES339. After having played it for about 2 months, I have to say that my new Epiphone ES339 is a very, very nice instrument. It's easy to play, fairly light weight, it looks great and it sounds terrific. The workmanship is unbelievably good. There's not a single flaw, and I checked every square inch. I lowered the strings a hair which took about 10 seconds. Still, the intonation was/is spot an. I have my Epiphone ES339 hanging on the wall next to a Les Paul Standard and a Strat. The Epiphone gets the most attention from visitors. Imagine that. It's because it looks very cool. If you've been wanting a semi-hollow guitar, try this one. It's really that good.
