1 DCBirdMan 7 months ago The Korean Epiphone was tweaked to the max out of a 6/12 and is peformance quality. This is a bolt on neck version and guitar neck is on top where it belongsVery happy with it. It gets used a lot. The "Gibson" set neck 6/4 straight outta the smoking/smoldering factories deep in China took some tweaking to play decently but they honked a full scale bass neck on it, and the body is thicker than normal. For those reasons, it is a back breaking 15 1/2 pounds... What a BEAST. The 12 pound Epiphone feels like featherweight by comparison. We did put a DiMarzio in the neck position for better sound. One guy suggest it be sawed in half up the middle and have a 2/3 of an SG and 2/3 EB bass. Still I am sort of fond of it..although it's not a long term item. I am still at a loss / unable to figure out why they would copy a virtually unknown special order from the 60s (EBS-1250) that fewer than 40 were made over a 10-11 year period.
