51 tubwompus 2 weeks ago Yes, but wouldn't the design and construction of a guitar make it so that the same string would vibrate on all those guitars? String length, string gauge...the same on all the A strings on all the Epi 160s made...so shouldn't that same string vibrate and feedback on all the Epi 160s? I wonder if the difference in tops between the Gibson and Epi play a part in the feedback differential, along with the Epi’s having a P-100 stacked humperdinker instead of the Gibson’s P-90. And yeah, the pickup is weak on the Epi. Thank goodness for its having looong polepieces.
