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

Lovin' this EL-00 Pro!  Gigging with her regularly..sound great!  IMHO, I would recommend!

I saw a fare find on Saturday at Guitar Center in Monroeville, PA: an Epiphone 12 string Advanced Jumbo with electronics and an XLR output. It was tuned down to Bb-Bb which gave me the inclination to use this as a baritone (believe me, you get the sound out of this and ya just gotta plug it in all the time; no problem, it won't hurt) And what, you would ask, did I do...? I put that bad boy in layaway since Guitar Center's layaway policy graciously includes pre-owned instruments. Very soon I'll have two Epiphones (Ed and Elvin) as part of the musical family.

Post some pics John, or a video would be cool!

More like the classic vibe...the sound is big for the size of the guitar, great for the stuff I do...a noe companion for my Alvarez!

So the little 00 had the big sound you were looking for?

There is a sunburst model of the Texan on amazon...

I am also interested in the Texan reissue. None around me right now either!

I am fairly new to this group but I love the Epi's. I have had lots of them but currently have 5. Dove NA, Masterbuilt AJ 500 M, PR 650 ASB, AJ 220 ST and an SG. I like the new 64 Texan remake and wanted some info from current owners about what they think about them??? I checked with my local Sam Ash store and all he can get right now is the natural model so they must be ending this guitar too.
