"Epiphone sg special"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
We get the - " it was great out of the box " stories , but this isnt one of em.This epi sg is a very basic guitar , no bells or whistles. 2 p - 90 pickups , its very light, compared to my gibson sg.No neck dive. But it did need a set up. Action was high. No biggie
For the price , and the sound, you really cant beat it. Very comfortable to play. A fast neck, and the p 90s give it a punch.
Epiphone might not use top notch materials like gibson, but epiphones are assembled well. If yoy close your eyes , you really cant tell between this epiphone sg , and the real deal, sound wise.
Ease of Use
I like the p-90s , and its light in weight. And very comfortable .
Epiphone guitars are usually assembled well. But they use cheaper materials to make their guitars affordable.
This epiphone sg is worth the $$ just be prepared to get it set up. To your liking.
The Wow Factor
Well, its a basic sg special. Very functional. Its not an eye catcher , some may even say it looks very plain. But wait till you plug the bastard in! Those p - 90s , a metal pick , and click on some over drive, and youll hear magic!
Playing for 15 yrs
Hard rock , blues , some country.
