"Very Impressed!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am very pleased with this Epiphone “inspired by Gibson” SG.....so much so I’ve pre-ordered the same in the Les Paul Custom version in black. In the past I felt every Epiphone very hit and miss and almost every SG was a miss feeling like it was made out of light, cheap wood. Not the case here! Weight is right about what a USA version should be, very impressed with the ebony fretboard, which for some odd reason seems to be less likely on a USA Les Paul custom when that was standard. After a simple set up (basically truss rod had no tension) lowered the bridge etc. the guitar plays smooth and I’m very into super low action same from the first fret to the 12th fret. I’m 54 and my first guitar was a 1981 Gibson SG firebrand series and later I had a 1978 Gibson SG standard. Sometime back I had one of their US I believe it was called an elite? Anyway that had an ebony board with custom split inlays and was very impressive. My point being I’m no stranger to high-end Gibsons and while I won’t say this is 100% that for the price you can’t complain. The frets are nicely done you don’t have that sharp edged thing going on as you rub your hand up and down the edges of the fretboard The pick ups and electronics all sound very nice and there you have it. I will weigh in on the Les Paul version when they come in stock and I receive it. Hopefully it won’t be chambered or any of that cheap stuff or I’ll be sending it back
