Epiphone guitars what can I say if you can get over the headstock and be able to try a lot of guitars from different stores back and forth comparisons you can find a gem.

Saw an Epiphone ES-345 hanging for years at a far flung shop way out Tung Chung. Nobody wanted it. Was in a bad condition but priced B stock range. Mulled for weeks, Parsons sale, drum set or another guitar.

Guitar for the win!!













Tightened the jack input, oiled the fretboard, lubed all the contact points, tuners lubed and she is the business.


Her neck is chunky and just right, the varitone is solid, electronics and pots all smooth and responsive. I got a good deal recognizing her potential.

Man this means the JB 355 is definitely a killer guitar.

Ganda nung Epi 345. I hope i could test the JB 355 as well and the Les Paul DC Pro when i go overseas this July.

I own an Epiphone Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom. That guitar plays like butter. Ebony fingerboard + Axcess neck joint + EMGs. Its like the inexpensive version of Kirk Hammett's Les Paul Custom from the 1989 Metallica Live in Seattle.
Its not the kill, Its the thrill of the chase...

Elitist wala. They are rare pre. Havenít seen one in person. There was once one in GuitarSofa HK but he was asking way too much so I didnít try let alone made an effort to acquire.
