First electric guitar I've ever bought, and It does not disappoint. Feels good, plays good, sounds good. Not as good as a Gibson or a Fender in my opinion, but for the price, it's pretty great. I'm personally not a huge fan of Epiphone pickups, but they sound infinitely better than some of the other off-brand guitars at this price. A big difference for me was the Satin finish which I really enjoy playing on. Feels a lot smoother and softer when playing. The only problem I've ever had with this guitar so far is the bottom straphead's screwhole getting stripped, but that was easily fixed by sticking a toothpick in the hole and screwing it back in. (This is also common with a lot of other guitars).

I bought this used through L&M's inventory blowout in order to have a guitar specifically set up in D. I was blown away by the sound and tone of this guitar, it sounds really great. I can't put in down. If you need another guitar (and who doesn't) pick this one up.

Great guitar. Excellent sound and pick ups. Perfect for rocking or any other genre. This is one of four guitars I own which includes a Fender strat, Ibanez mini bass, and a Simon & Patrick electric acoustic. This is the one I practice and jam with the most. Buy it! You'll like it.

All around perfect for what I am using it for...I would play it on stage, not that I get on stage ever!! But it's really a great value. Plays better than I expected at the price point. I paired it with a 15w Marshall amp. Sounds perfect!

Nice guitar. I got the package with the amp but I rarely use the amp since it's very finicky. Anyway, I got the guitar with a chip on the paint behing the fretboard but I decided to keep it anyway because I thought it looked more "mature" that way. The guitar holds it's tune quite well (in my experience, anyway) and sounds pretty good. Has a deep, growling sound to it which is perfect for classic rock and roll. Only thing is, you may want to get it set up before you leave the shop. I had to fix my intonation after I got it but the manual tells you how to do it so if you forgot, you could still tune it yourself. Overall, great guitar, had it for 2 or so years (spent a lot of it's time in storage; just picked it up again recently) and hasn't let me down.

I've tried this guitar once cause we bought it on eBay basically brand new (saved a couple bucks), bought it for someone's birthday and just had to play test it to make sure it worked just fine *wink*. Overall my experience with it was really good.

Could not go wrong buying this guitar,for the cost you are getting a very comfortable nice size guitar.Mine is the sunburst finish which looks wicked under stage lights,the only issue I find is the tuners are a little weak,does not take much to go out of tune,I have changed the tuners and have not had the guitar going out of tune.Bottom line..........beginner -- seasoned pro you can't go wrong buying this,great for noodling or shredding value galore.....great job Epiphone.

This guitar is great if it is gonna be your first because its pretty cheap. It feels okay and sounds okay. My brother had one for a few years only cause his other guitar got stolen. This guitar fell apart pretty fast. This guitar doesnt take a beating to well.

This was my first real electric guitar and for the price, it's totally worth it. It sounds great, buzzes very, very rarely. I'm in my room playing this guitar for hours every night. Another great job Epiphone!

the guitar is a great beginner guitar, the neck pickup slipped and fell down the hole where it sits but that was an easy fix. The amp is an OK amp I used it for a school talent show but the comments were really muffled so I'll probably get a different amp when i get the money.
