Value For Money : Excellent
Korean manufacturing (definitely guitars made in Korea offer an excellent quality / price) satisfactory at all levels.
Grover tailpiece and bridge with stop bar Tune'o'Matic fine tune!
The Varitone is for experts, otherwise disappointment is an appointment - you must have tried a Varitone before buying this system is radically different from the usual mail and its use not obvious at the time.
The six positions of Varitone: the 6th is a stand-by and the other 5 a kind of frequency filters - I do not know if the word is correct.
The result varied palette of sounds and rich - I like every position.
In the past I tried a Gibson. Both Varitone are slightly different but not to the quality, rather a point of view of electronic control. The only "minus" could be issued for the wiring - by inference, given the original price of the guitar, it should not be of high quality.

UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant, even though it is slightly thinner and longer than a gibson (I play on Les Paul, 135, SG). Ergonomics blameless.
This is a Gibson Epiphone like all!
Ergonomic small differences are not a factor of doubt about the quality of Epiphone. Jump to a guitar, regardless of the model, requires time to adapt to the ergonomics and sound.

SOUNDS

The pickups in this guitar (I do not know what the pickups, I feel that it is identical to Humbuckers pickups Gibson 335 - at least it's stunning!).
Since I bought this guitar I bought a second amp to play it in stereo: I connects two fender blues junior .... is the foot!!

My preferences settings:

position 6 - Varitone on standby, 5 pos, pos 4 - but the other three do not displease me.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month. I bought it used in perfect condition to an individual.
I saw the ad (I was looking for a dot or a cherry sheraton II) and while I did not know the existence of this guitar I immediately called to buy it.
A few details, it is the copy of Lucille (I just invented !!!)... jokes aside, it's a quality / price ratio breathtaking and a remarkable similarity to all levels with the original.

I am delighted to have bought this guitar. I feel like a gibson hands (I play Gibson for 20 years ...).
