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

Maybe you got lucky and found one of the hand full they they made for some artist. I am like you and buy sell and trade and always can sell an Epiphone. I have never had an EJ body. I have been more into the AJ body and have traded my way into a 2014 Gibson J-45 Custom.

I agree with you guys 100%. Epiphones are great guitars - I'm always buying and trading them. I currently have 5 of them and they all sound unique a look great! My favorite one is an EJ200 Artist that I picked up second hand, This guitar is supposed to have a laminated top and sides but it's all 100% solid - I don't know what happened but I'm pretty pleased! I upgraded the pick guard to give it that traditional EJ200 look. What a great guitar!

Lucky you! I am looking for a good 12 string right now. I had a 78 Texan that was great but I sold it. I know the Epiphones are a great choice.

The new Texan and the Dove Pro are great bargains. The AJ 220 has a good tone too for less money. I love the Epiphones and enjoy buying, putting a great set up on them and selling and trading them. That way I get to try out a lot of guitars and if I find one I have to keep I do not have Gibson or Martin kind of money in them.

I'm thinking about the IB 1964 Texan in vintage cherryburst.  It would be my second guitar after my Seagull S6

I have an Epiphone DR100, and I love it. It is just an Acoustic. You'll hear pros and cons, just go to an music store that sells guitar and try it, that is if you can.

Is this group inactive?  I was wanting some opinions on a new guitar, and was considering an Epiphone.

I didn't think you were looking to buy it.  I'm not the collector you appear to be, but I do have 7 guitars now.  The first guitar I owned was an archtop Harmony that my folks bought for me in '56 or '57.  I don't remember the details anymore, but I did learn to play on that Harmony even though it was not an easy one to learn on.  2nd guitar was a Gibson single pickup ES series made in the late '50s or early 60s.  My mother sold the Harmony while I was in the USAF in Pakistan, and I sold the Gibson around 1986 for $100 at a garage sale.  The guy that bought it was so happy that he called me a few days later to thank me again.  I was happy with the sale price because I had only paid $125 for it including an amp.  Thanks for posting the pics of some of your guitars.

Ah...well I wasn't looking to buy it I was just wondering if you still had it. Thats cool that you have it.   I can't let any go either which would be why I have a bout 40 instruments, most of which are guitars.  Maybe when you get back you could take and post some pics here, we just love that kinda stuff!  I have a 70's Gibson Les Paul Signature semi hollow which is pretty rare, but there was an Epi model of it too.  Gibson made  bass version and it is sold now as the Jack Cassidy model.
