Congrats & Happy New Epi Day
I also got one of these:
Here are pics of the guitar I'm getting tomorrow!!
I bought mine in natural shortly after they hit the market, also from Sweetwater. Also got the Epi HS case at the same time. My favorite electric.
Great guitars, congrats!
They are very nice guitars. Congratulations.
Thanks, it's coming in today and I'm really excited!!
That's the one guitar that on a trip to the store to look around and maybe grab some strings with no thought or research beforehand, I walked in, saw, took down off the wall, played, walked up to the counter, paid and left with it. I haven't done that before or since. They're such cool pieces.
I had a ES-339 before,, from the Gibson custom shop. I loved that one and I had to get one like it again. This is a sweet guitar and I love the neck.
That is beautiful.. I love my EPI 339.
I just got one yesterday in a trade with a friend...I was about to start a "NGD,Epi 339 Pro" thread,but figured I had better search first......LOL,here I am.
Mine is like the one in the OP---sunburst.The first thing I thought when I picked it up was that the neck was rather nice and chunky,which I like.Not too much,just right.
I had an Epi SG/LP before and still have a red Dot---nice (chunky necks too)!I liked them but had to change out the electronics in both.Sounded like the amp was under a pillow before the swap.
I figured this one might be the same---but upon plugging it in,the sound is nice and sweet compared to the other Epis.I am a forever tinkerer,but I might leave this one alone (look for a new thread next,"Hey,Swapped My Pups In My 339 Pro").The tap function is cool.
Very happy so far with this guitar!!! And congrats to the OP and other owners!
That's a stunner!
Loving mine! Got it on sale for the local equivalent of US$318. It feels just right on my 5'4" frame. I will be giving up my mij Tom Holmes Custom 335 for this.
The neck pickup seems a tad muddy on crunch chords. Should I bring up the polepieces for a bit more clarity? Or bring down the pickup height? Or both?
Has anyone taken a peek at capacitor values on the pots?
Played mine through my original '57 Deluxe amp the other day with just a few pedals.....wow.
These are nice guitars.
I have one, an extremely generous gift from a forum member. Sunburst, case...and a couple of Seymour Duncan P-Rails mounted on Triple Shots. It is so versatile it´s just on a different level.
There you go! Now you don´t have to leave it alone. You are welcome .
After playing this for a number of weeks, I observed that it easily falls out of tune, sometimes even after just one song. A friend said I should just play it gently and not whack the strings. Haha like that's possible.
Play it gently!? Pfffffffffft, yeah right!
Have you had the nut slots filed to avoid any potential tuning issues. As great as these Epis are, the nut can always benefit from a little micro detailing.
I'm sure my trusted luthier/friend will want to replace the nut. But since he's 1.5 hrs away in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I keep postponing the trip.
Never have had problem with mine going out of tune (but then, I do play fairly gently). Also put a Graphtech nut on it only because I do that with all my guitars.
Do you ever have a similar issue with other guitars? I find that some tuning problems have more to do with how the strings are wrapped around the posts than anything else.
