    Style of Music: Blues, folk

    Experience: Active musician, been playing guitars and bases over 42 years

    "Vintage Sunburst Drop-Dead Beauty"

    Sound:
    Sounds fine to me. Every single guitar has it's own sound,and how much you like it kinda depends on what you're looking for. This guitar sounds like a big ol' dreadnought. In fact it IS a big ol' dreadnaught... I have yet to try it through an amp... My wife thinks I'm loud enough as it is...
    Feature:
    Features and accessories? Hey its only a guitar, not a Lexus. But the quality of the materials and parts appears to be excellent.
    Ease of Use:
    Sounds just fine, plays great, nice action out of the box. I haven't messed round with the amplified sound, yet. I never take it out of the house...
    Quality:
    Stunning beauty! I can't take my eyes off it!! the tuner buttons are a bit TOO green, but they're nice and smooth to me... My EJ is supposed to be a factory second, but I've yet to find whatever flaw the inspector found that condemned it...
    Manufacturer Support:
    Haven't really dealt with them, so I can't penalize them for that, hence the arbitrary "9"...
    Value:
    I bought a "second" for $100 off. I can see no flaws that are unworthy of a "production" instrument. It's priced a bit higher than it's competitors, but it was easily the most beautiful thing I found under about $1000 or so. And it plays and sounds just fine. Take the looks away and there's lots of other nice guitars to choose from out there...
    The Wow Factor:
    Sex appeal? If it was a woman, I'd hop on it in a heart beat. To me, it would be worth the price even if it didn't play, and I just sat and stared at it all day. There's not many things that a poor man can buy that I can say this about, y'know? Oh yeah, and I hear that a couple of those Beatle-dudes used to play the Gibson replica of it, but that's just some people talkin'...I wouldn't know, myself...
    Overall:
    Ironically, it's almost to gorgeous to play. I'm afraid I'll scratch it. I've never been very anal about my instruments, but I'd faint if I put a scratch this one. I wind up playing my other guitars so I can bang 'em around without worrying about it...

    Style of Music: Everything except metal (and rap, of course)

    Experience: Active musician

    "Needs to be properly set-up, but well worth it at this price."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Once set up properly the acoustic sound is fantastic. The electronics, however, are muddy and noisy (due to unshielded wires and a pickup that is very different than what Lennon had on his stock Gibson). If I ever amplify it I will replace the pickup.
    Feature:
    Didn't like the pickup, and the nut wasn't slotted properly, making the strings get caught up and impossible to tune. The frets were attached by a jackhammer - completely uneven, with rough edges on the side.
    Ease of Use:
    Unplayable when received. Much work had to be done by my luthier.
    Quality:
    Quality control seems non-existent. All critical parts had to be re-set. The frets had to be leveled and re-crowned, and rough edges had to be shaved. Shims had to be placed under the bridge.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I called the company to report this guitar, and they were very uninterested. The support guy said if I had paid to ship it back to Epiphone, they would have fixed the problems (but I doubt that, since they didn't set it up right in the first place). He never offered my money back or to reimburse me for my repair costs.
    Value:
    Here's the big surprise: it's still a good buy at this price, but add $100 for your set-up and another hundred if you want a decent pickup. But it sounds great and is still only a fraction of the Gibson version. Plus, Lennon's was a laminate top and this is solid spruce. So the potential is there.
    The Wow Factor:
    Looks great cosmetically.
