"Great axe for the $$"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Out of the box this Firebird impressed. The look was outstanding. The setup(action,intonation) was all spot on.The fretwork was a slightly different story. The frets were level enough, no buzzing or dead spots, no fretting out during big bends or anything like that. The only real issue was the fret ends, it was as though they just nipped them off, beveled them and called it good. They were rough and sharp. An easy enough fix but come on Epiphone, you can do better than that! As zZounds and their staff, they are top notch, knowledgeable and helpful. The pay as you play plans are awesome for the musician that’s on a budget! I would recommend the Epiphone Firebird and zZounds every time!
