Epiphone Wood? 28 Replies

I'm hearing from many musicians, people who run instrument shops, etc. that Epiphone uses cheap Asian wood. I know that the company is not the same it was when it was American with Greek luthiers,…Continue

I have a EJ-160. Plays nice. I have had it for about 3 yrs. It is the same guitar that is in my profile pic.

When we practiced tonight, I used the new...well it's from the 90's, but it's new to me...Epiphone Broadway. I just plugged it into the PA, so you can hear it's natural warm tone. The song is one of mine called Moonfall

Edward,

Love the old archtop! Thanks for starting this group. All of my Epi's have been imports, none "vintage", most seemed to have issues. My (re-)starter guitar was a LP special (sold that a year ago). My first acoustic was the John Lennon 160CE, still one of my favorites, a black one bought it used & the bridge lifted shortly afterward, local guitar shop repair fixed the issue. Very bassy and a bit buzzy, but fun to play. Also have a Biscuit (wood bodied resonator) that has a nice tone, I don't play it enough. A sweet-sounding Hummingbird and a PR350  (12-string) that had a cracked neck, also repaired, I keep it tuned down a step.

I went to the store today and got the guitar. I haven't gotten any new photos yet, but I do have the one the store took. I don't know much about it, but it's a '97 Broadway model.

Hey Bernie,

Never tried a lefty, but hey, I'm game!

Actually, one of the coolest things I ever witnessed was a friend of mine who is a lefty, who turned a guitar strung righty upside down and fingerpicked "Blackbird" by McCartney...my jaw just hit the floor!  Boy, if I could do that, I would have been the hit at all the parties and gotten all the cool girls!
