    I bought one of these a couple of years ago and it is a top notch guitar. Outstanding pickups and a great neck. If you've been waiting...JUMP!

    that unit has the slim taper neck, so it's not huge by an means. more
    on the thinner side.

    Ok, I had one of the slim taper necks but I thought I saw they changed to a bigger neck since 2014. :hmm:

    Yeah I thought this goldtop had the bigger neck not the slim taper.

    I didn't snag one because I didn't get along with the slimmer neck on my 2014. :(

    These still have a long neck tenon? My older Made in China Traditional Pro has a long neck tenon.

    I picked up a wine red or what ever they call it a few weeks back. Great guitar for the money - I actually like the pickups and it has a somewhat chunky neck on it.

    Hard to thing $319 buys so much

    Couldn't agree more. The neck is definitely thicker than the usual slim taper. The pickups are as good as Gibsons. I don't know how they can sell them for $300. I bought one on SDOD a couple of years ago, a gold top traditional pro. Outstanding guitar. The only thing that separates it from a Gibson is the fret ends need a little extra filing to make them perfectly smooth. But that is so minor as to be inconsequential. Epi has upped their game.

    I ended getting another one of these this past week - the $319 price is just too good to pass up.

    It arrived fine, but the setup on the second one was terrible, where the wine red was spot on. It's nothing I can't fix, but QC has a wide swing at the plant.

    I know right? Amazon has some crazy deals last night and today for Prime Day and it's all I can do not to buy more guitars. They have an Epi G400 PRO SG for $359 plus 20% off in checkout gets you a cool black SG for $288!

    It's not the price that's the problem, it's all the time taken away from practicing to buy, setup the guitar, figure out if you like it better than the one it's replacing, or if not where to store all of these, or is it "good enough" to keep or do I return it, putting the ad together online to sell it when "thinning the herd." Whew, three months later it sold for almost as much as I wanted to get for it....wait what's this eBay seller statement?.... Ooh, another xyz guitar at 35% off....rinse repeat. First world problems eh


    Before the Internet I used to be a much better and more Intuitive player.
