UTILIZATION

The vibrato is pretty, it is medium to use, too soft for my taste.
The switchable tone controls can remain in hand if handled with dishonesty.

SOUNDS

crunch + very short delay to thicken + slight chorus = yum

OVERALL OPINION

When purchasing, it was in competition with Hagström, other Epiphone semi-hollow, and especially with the beautiful Gretsch Tim Armstrong who is for my taste the finest guitar on the market (and which costs twice as much)! Well in terms of sound (test on a Vox AC30) the swingster is that I was most satisfied with. I wanted a guitar able to provide further crunches and yet well defined.

OVERALL OPINION

When purchasing, it was in competition with Hagström, other Epiphone semi-hollow, and especially with the beautiful Gretsch Tim Armstrong who is for my taste the finest guitar on the market (and which costs twice as much)! Well in terms of sound (test on a Vox AC30) the swingster is that I was most satisfied with. I wanted a guitar able to provide further crunches and yet well defined. The pickups are switchable single, one obtains a range of possible sounds pretty rare on this type of instrument.
For a guitar of this price, finish and sound quality are exceptional (of course putting three times that price, you enter a new world but not everyone can afford it !)
I've been stuck on the Bare Knuckle Stormy Monday and I won the crunch, more flexible and easier to manage via volume knob. I have maybe a little lost on the country sounds, though ... anyway, it's not my main interest.
It is often fashionable to spit on Epiphone to give a sort of guitar authority, don't count on me!

I tried to put it into competition with a Peerless but I never managed to have one in hands!
