Well if I compare said Epi with my '73 Gibby DLX, no doubt the latter is a better guitar overall. The components, fit and finish are of superior quality even if it's a Norlin fiddle - and yet, I don't think I would've noticed anything overtly amiss with the Epi compared to the Norlin either had they both been available new at the same time*, because it's still a well made guitar.just sharing my experiances with these guitars
So yeah, the Epi has more rough edges, but it's a good enough guitar to gig and record with regardless. Because while I'm largely out of the (semi) pro game by now, you still never know what turns up, and the Gibby's just too old for the road by now! I couldn't stand something happening to it while I'm not looking...
* To clarify, I didn't buy the DLX back then but only acquired it recently, I'm just comparing the two per say.
