Looks and sounds great but serious QC issues
Rafared, 31.12.2020
My first Epiphone and being honest I would be reluctant to buy another.
I accept Epiphones are great value and are often bought because of the price in comparison to equivalent Gibson models but at E599 this guitar is not cheap.
Lets get the positive out of the way first, it looks fantastic, I love the colour even if the top and back are only veneers it is still a very attractive guitar. The hardware all feels solid, the wiring is neat and the guitar stays in tune. Acoustically the guitar sings with great sustain, and plugged in a great range of warm full tones are at your fingertips.

Now the negative.......this guitar had the worst Fret job I've ever seen on a new Instrument. It has a serious case of fret sprout with edges like razor blades which would slice you open. I can't believe Thomann would send a guitar out in this condition to be honest. The frets were also very grubby and tarnished and badly in need of a good polish. To cap it all off it had 5 or 6 high frets which had to be leveled and crowned. I've had a couple of HB guitars and a G&L fallout from Thomann in the last year and all had better fretwork out of the box. Once the fret issues were addressed, which thankfully I could do myself, the neck needed a slight adjustment because it had no relief.
3 weeks on the neck has settled and with the fret ends filed and the high frets addressed, the frets polished and the board oiled the guitar feels and plays like it should.
The only cosmetic flaw I could find is a poorly finished painted edge to the F holes which you have to look closely to find.

To sum up.....If you want the looks and sounds of a 335 on a budget this Guitar is as close as it gets without the big price tag. Be aware you will be playing the "Epiphone" fret lottery though and may have to pay someone to make the guitar playable if you cannot sort the issues yourself.

Magnificent
Beauclerc, 07.01.2021
This guitar is nothing short of brilliant. I already owned the Epiphone Wildkat Royale so I was convinced of Epiphone being a wonderful brand prior to this purchase, but damn. They really knocked it out of the park with this one.

Beautiful paintjob, intricate details, the sound is warm and yet has a little.. 'snazz' to it. The body's on the large side, but I know that before buying, and it's also because I'm a fairly small person that that's a thing :-)

Love love LOVE it <3
