it's solid but 22 frets is a little lame, and the pick-ups could be better, but its still better than a top of the line stratocaster

Yes, because 24 is far superior. Seriously, its not that big of a deal.

I think the guitar looks interesting for 350.

If I had the cash for that I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

ignore the troll. i'm sure i've seen him making dumb posts many times before.. something about hollowbodies sucking springs to mind?

for the money the wilshires seem like pretty cool guitars, i personally prefer the "worn" model with the mini-humbuckers, but that's just me. i'd imagine quality wise they are on par with any other epiphone for that sort of money, but the fact it's not an epiphone original and not gibson knock-off certainly adds to the charm.
