    I only have two epis, but both are very high quality, for a very reasonable
    Price.

    The Texan is really a lovely acoustic. Easy to play, and they sound great, already to
    Go electric if you need to. Projection is good, and they are all solid, tone wood guitars.

    Fit and finish on this one anyway, was excellent. Binding, everything was, and still is
    nice. They have great necks, nice in lays, and just darn good acoustic instruments.

    The other one worth the money is without question, The Casino. I waited nine months for this lefty. It has a beautiful top, which the photo does not do justice.

    These sound great unplugged too! Make watch'n cowboys and Indians allot more fun on a Saturday morning.
    This Casino currently has 10-52 flatwounds on it, and..they are a little slice of heaven on my tired O'l fingers.

    Cool guitars. I find it interesting that the inlays slant in different directions.

    Very nice!

    Epiphone makes some very "plebeian" guitars for sure... but, in their defense, they aren't trying to build "great" guitars with those models. They're trying to build cheap entry-level beginner guitars for people to get started on, then move onto buying better made guitars as their skill level and/or financial status allows it.

    But they also build models with which they obviously *really* try to build quality guitars. Their semi-hollow and hollow bodies in particular are "A" grade guitars IMO. And thus insanely good deals.

    Frankly, the set neck Epi LPs (especially the higher end ones like the Trib+ and LPCs, signature models, etc) are "A" grade guitars too IMO. My Epi LPC Pro (aside from the pickups which I did replace, but in all fairness I replaced the pickups in my Gibson LPs too) is spectacular in build quality, aesthetics, playability, and tone--it's 90%-95% of a Gibson LPC at 10% the price.
