Fine guitar, got mine with case for $410!
I certainly didn't need a new guitar, but for some reason, wanted to try out something recent from China.
So many people say they want to swap out this and that for something made in America. What they are really saying is they feel guilty for spending 1/8 of what Gibson would charge for the analogous model.
Listen to the damn guitar please! Especially after changing the strings.....
All mine needed was new strings and an ever so slight tightening of the truss rod, about 1/8 turn.
Also, Gibson usually charges more just for a natural model than the entire cost of an Epiphone. What can I say, I love natural blondes.
Tried the 339 thru an Ethos and Marshall SL5, heavenly tone for so little dough. Also works great with Boogies and Fenders.
Whichever factory Epiphone contracted to make the ES339 series, congrats on a well made guitar for an insanely cheap price. What a wonderfully soulful and oh so comfortable guitar to play.
