Straight to the point…it’s awesome! Quality is amazing. Sounds amazing, it’s higher output than my Gibson SG Standard T with the ‘57 classics.

I had it plek’d from sweetwater and the action set to 4/64-3/64. I own a number of guitars but the last 3 epi customs I bought have been stellar so I’m not sure the plek was needed but I wanted to give it a try.

All the hardware is good, basic epi stuff that I usually upgrade with Faber tone lock, which I have but am in no hurry to change as this guitar doesn’t need it currently. Maybe on next string change I’ll do some pickup swaps and change it out then.

My .02$, it’s worth every penny!

I say do it. The plek was expensive but the way this things plays is just phenomenal so I shouldn’t complain.

Congrats, ebony is a beautiful color on the SG models. Glad to hear you are enjoying the sounds that it produces. Epiphone makes a high quality guitar both in their SGS and other models.

Looks incredible.

A local store carries Epiphone and the quality of the new Epiphones I've tried is excellent.

Yet, I am a Gibson fan and have to ask.

The Epiphone USA lists the neck as a Slim Taper.
Can you compare this neck to a traditional Gibson Slim Taper neck?

Ebony and gold is a killer combo, it works very well.
