So I have been playing guitar now for 3 months. I started with a Kramer I found next to a dumpster. We’ll I pulled the trigger on this ‘96 Czech made Epiphone. Payed $370 out the door (Guitar, Case, and strap)

As a complete Newb please let me know what y’all think.
What is this worth? Did I overpay?
Can yal tell me anything about it?
What kind of pickups does it have?

I’m learning from the Yousician app.

Thank you all,
Ricardo aka PoetRuiz

That’s a great price for an epi these days. I don’t know a lot about the Czech ones, but they have a following so I assume their pretty good? @DrBGood, how would you say they compare to a Korean or Chinese from around the same period?

There was never anything set about factories quality. Some guitars are good, other less. Gibson is still the same as of today. They usually can all be setup right to give their best. It's up to you to find its sweet spot. One clue: use a screwdriver and adjust those pup heights, that's where the secret lies with most electric guitar.
