Opinions on the Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric? I have the chance to buy one (new from a music store) for $299. GC and MF sell these for $599 and the cheapest Amazon price is $499. I'm not really in the market for this guitar but for $299 it may be cool to have around.

The store has a great reputation and is selling this as new but at this price, I suppose it could have been preowned but untouched from the looks of it.

I didn't play it - because then I probably would have bought it. But if anyone here can highly recommend it, maybe I'll go for it.
