so, It's a NGD for Old Ralph!! A BRAND NEW guitar day. I have wanted a reverse Firebird since the 60's, never was able to afford one.
Along comes "Inspired by Gibson"
Lemme tell you, Epiphone has hit this one right outta the park...
Fit and finish are great, NO fret sprout or sharp edges. If I had ONE nit to pick, the truss rod cover doesn't quite lay down right, easy fix
The strings desperately need to be changed, but the set up isn't terrible.
I usually do NOT buy new, I let someone else take the "New Guitar" hit. But these are not showing up on the used market, and quite frankly, I wanted one. I am GLAD I bought it.
Actually, Her name is Lucinda after my very recently departed wife. Without that life insurance, I would not have been able to get this... I would rather she was still here, But Thanks Baby, I really like it!!

I cannot emphasize enough what a spectacular bargain this guitar is. If you have EVER wanted something like this, JUMP before they are gone.
Next week when I put some strings on it I'll take some "Under-the-hood" shots also...
