Overall Rating:
I've had a few mechanical problems with this guitar (see below), but I still love the guitar. I would definitely consider purchasing the same model again if I had it to do over.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $550.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Gorilla Guitars, Hillsboro, OR
Features:
It has a solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Everything is pretty standard - one pickup in the saddle, non-locking tuners, etc. It does have some nice pearl inlays marking the 125th anniversary of epiphone.
Playability:
Playability is great. The neck is real smooth. Its a joy to play.
Sound Quality:
This is where the epi shines. This particular model has a sound comparable to much more expensive Taylor's. Its really bright and it has good projection.
Durability:
This is where my epi has fallen short. I've had to take it to an epi repair man several times. For instance, the saddle fits into a plastic housing and that housing has broken on me twice already.
