Value For Money : Excellent
This semi-hollow is made in Korea it seems to me (for me), but there is a "lite" version is 1500 euro made in Japan.
This is a copy of the ES-335 (the guitar of BB King), but I find the Sheraton II more beautiful than the original thanks to its head o-pearl leaf pattern is very s beautiful.
The representatives of the handle are also inlaid mother of pearl.
2 humbucker epiphone (they dfendent I find a lot)

UTILIZATION

The handle is round, slightly wider than the sleeves START: For me it's the IDAL, I am very hands on.
Before I had a Squier Start, I had to adapt a little bit especially since I'm taking a pass of 10-46 11-48, more suited to the violin.

CHAC is the acute way, less than a strat's on the form is too good, but it is heavy ... (Unless an epiphone LP even when (I test)).

The three micro-config to switch between sound trs hot (I love) has a more cutting edge for rhythm ska, funk, and has the ca disto EHJV!

SOUNDS

Personally, I could just jou with this guitar: blues, rock, ska, punk, see metal. The semi-hollow add really something.

I play a Peavey Classic 30, so I sound super hot, it sounds really great on an amp lamps. A trs high volume, when it is not the strings, it tends to have some feedback, but it is not trsgnant, especially if you buy good mics, and when we play the punk ...

Addition:
Since I play in the studio with a drummer trs nerv I push the amp (mainly a Marshall JCM 900 100w head of cabinet 4x12 ") and the feedback is unbearable!

I wanted to change the pickups, but it is especially good because of the half body and pickups I think are good.

So I invested in a Boss NS-2 (noise suppressor) and I redcouvre my guitar! a single feedback, except when we want to dclanchant the pedals: Yeah!

OVERALL OPINION

C'tait the guitar of my dreams when I start scratching, 2 years ago, I did a half box for its aesthetics ... I'm glad a strat not expensive to begin with, but true that since I (one year) it's great.

Mine is black (with accoustillage dor and mother, I find it too too good ...) I have tried other half box: aria, epi casino, it's really over in therm of violin and its aesthetic.
The report price is great quality, I am the best plan to epiphone.

I bought 580 euro hand, I do it again without any hsitation this choice, I love this guitar.
