Was on my way to see a local band last night(great gig) and saw this used in a local shop, a recent re-issue(almost new).Gorgeous.Yes, i will demo,tomorrow. I had been looking earlier in the year for a V but backed off,being a long time LP player...and more recently a Tele man. But i would like a change-up. Didn't want to chuck a load on and be saddled with something i may not like after a while. I like the way V plays sitting(rt leg in the goove) and standing. I have a set of seth lovers ready to pop in,should i not like the pickups,so, no investment there. I heard they have grovers? Is the neck heavy and unbalanced standing with strap? But the price is worth a go!. What is outstanding about the recent epiphone re-issues (copies of those Gibson classics)that you can share?( most of the reviews are older). By all acounts i've read, Epiphone has upped its game, recently.Happy as is or needs upgrade? thx in advance.
