76 Chris-O-Matic 9 months ago Well it's been over a month now so i figured I'd post a follow up review now that I've time to get to know this guitar a bit better.I couldn't be happier! This guitar has exceed my expectations. I owned an ES-339, got it when they came out around 2007. This Epi is pretty equal in quality, but sounds better, even though they have the same pick ups. This is such a nicely designed guitar, all the little details really add up. Like the longer scale length, the ebony board, body size and shape. The neck and middle has such a fantastic tone! i didn't expect to like the neck position as much as i do, but it sounds super good! It really just feels great to hold and play. The neck sits well in my hand, not too think or thin, it's a breeze to play. One thing i noticed is using a thick pick on this guitar is like turning the tone knob down. it's quite a drastic change. So a lighter or normal pick works better to get a brighter tone, specifically on the bass strings.It sounds great playing Johnny A tunes, chord melody stuff, Chet style thumb picking, rock, blues and even some chickin' pickin' stuff! a great sounding overall guitar.Even the case is really nice. I know a lot of folks think it's pricey for an Epi, but honestly the features and quality for the money is great. one interesting thing is that it is no longer available on my online shops. L&M had it listed for a while but it's gone now. I never believe in the "Limited" part, but it does appear to be the case as they are not even being listed as on back order. Very happy i grabbed one~!Anyhow, i love this guitar!
