エピフォンチンタオ EQ 工場レポート
I found some interesting things in these pics. In one pic we can plainly see the body is made of three pieces, not five or more. We cannot tell what quality the wood is but all in all not bad for our money.
In another pic we can see the thickness of the tops. Looks to be a very thin veneer compared to the Gibson, which looks in their factory tour to be at least three quarters of an inch But still a nice piece of veneer.
In another pic I see the neck is not one piece like the Gibson where the headstock is. Im not counting the wing extensions . Im sure that this is so money can be saved by using a thinner piece of wood for the neck.
While I don't have any idea if any of these differences have any effect on tone, Im certain they do on price. It is nice to see some real differences in the two guitars. Each one is what it is.
I'm sure there's more than these, It would be nice to see a video tour of Epiphone factory. It would hopefully let us appreciate the differences and similarities between the two.
Some enthusiasts of automobiles like luxuries that to some are livable, others not. while each may have the same motor and trans and same exact speed in the quarter mile. there's more to an automobile Than just its performance. I for one look forward to the day I get a Gibby, and a few other guitars. I love my Epiphone very nice guitar for the money! Just cause a Camaro isn't a Vette doesnt mean It aint nice or fast !
