My god this things nice.

Easily as good as any of of the gibson's I have played recently.

Crazy low action with no buzz in sight.

Tone machine, good cleans and AMAZING when driven. Incredibly responsive.

One piece mahogany. Slickest neck.

This aint like no other epiphones..definately gibson standard quality.

Grovers standard. Really decent USA pups.







Still getting used to how neck heavy it is though. Seems the remedy is to keep my arm fixed to the body. Good practice I guess. Takes pressure off the shoulder.

I like that Epi logo/headstock so much better than the non-elitest ones.


Beautiful Sg though.

It's true, but I don't think "gibson" on the headstock cuts it. If it does have the gibson label it has to be something SPECIAL. And I mean that. Something ****ing INCREDIBLE.

I looked at the faded gibson's and IMO they are piles of crap compared to this..

Teh faded finish looks balls and they just don't play, or look for that matter, like a gibson should.

This epi deserves gibson written on it more than faded's do..

it is said that elitist epiphones are much better than the lower end gibson...

Honestly, without the binding on the neck I'd say it's a G400. Nonetheless, looks extremely nice, hope you have lots of fun with. Clips!

And it's just generally massively better quality.

It has gibson style hardware too. No metal bushing in the wood. The bridge is straight in like it should be!

It looks a bit less squashed in real life.

I used a pretty wide lens so there's a bit of barrel distortion near the edge.

Video's will come tomorrow or the day after.
