I bought this guitar second hand from a friend, it was well looked after and was only a few months old. When i got it the intonation was out quite badly, that was an easy fix but the action was also terrible. I tried lowering the bridge but that didn't do a lot so in the end i had to take the neck off and put it back on at the correct angle. One this was done the action was pretty good and the guitar played nicely. The connection to the pickup selector was loose so it only ocassionally worked but once again that was easy to fix. The finish was very good apart from the bottom of the neck where the sanding was rough. One final thing is that the tuners don't stay in tune particularly well. Now that i've finished with the bad side i will get to the good bits. The pickups are high output which means they have a very defined sound and are ideal for distortion. The hardware is standard epiphone which is nice and sturdy. This guitar has the standard one volume, one tone and a three way selector, which is all you need. It is a nice light guitar that would make an ideal back up stage guitar.
