Re: Is the Epiphone imitation of the Gibson 335 just as good?

OK: So after playing many guitars, all sorts of the Epiph, one 335 copy, and the Ibanez, I am getting one of the cheap Epi ones next week. The cost is only 269 plus 89 for a hard shell case. If I don't like the pickups, I'll probably go for the Gibson 57 classic ones. I have not checked out the Heritage line of guitars at all, just the Epiphones and the Ibanez ones. I'll probably be replacing the switch. The whole point is that these are very finely crafted guitars, made in china, and very much like the real thing. Sure, if someone wants to give me a Lee Ritenour model, I would love it. But the price on a real Gibson 335 is way too high. The Ibanez as73 was a nice solid tool, and I may just get one of those as well, for 350 it's an excellent buy. Thanks again for all the advice on this thread.
