Yo, finally found a store that still stocks Gibson and Epiphone, and asked em to order in an Epiphone Dove for me. The old <$300 guitar thread put me onto it, but I couldn't find one. I was THIS close to giving up and getting an Ibanez V when the board told me off for it.

So! I still haven't played it yet, but I did get to play a Gibson Hummingbird (£2205. ) I'm not expecting anywhere close to it, but I liked what I heard. If it's even in the same ballpark, I'm gonna love it.

Oh ya, was gonna ask; is £203 reasonable? It'll probably come with a softcase for that as well. I know it's got an internetz RRP of £180ish, but I wanna hold it in my hands and giving it the once over before paying for it. Any other UK buyers of it found it cheaper / can tell me how good it is?

Only epiphones that are worth looking at are the 500 series imo.
If you live in UK you should check out Tanglewood.
If you are fingerpicker then TW170 would be a great choice. If you are more into strumming then I would recommend Yamaha FG730S or 750

You can score TW170 for 200£ if you look around.
TW170 has solid spruce top, solid mahogany back, bonded mahogany sides, abalone inlays & headstock logo and rosewood fretboard.
I own one as my allround guitar. It sounds amazing and I wouldn't lose a fortune if it got stolen or I broke it.
