"I've finally found the guitar of a lifetime!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I grabbed the blem that was available which I was able to afford with my budget, and other than the scratched-up pickguard it's awesome! I determined mine to weigh 7 pounds which is in the range of how much these things supposedly should weigh. I will just put a sticker on the scratched-up pickguard and then I'll be in business! Speaking of sticker, even though it was a blem, zZounds still threw in the bumper sticker that Epiphone gives you which is nice. :D
