I acquired this guitar at Academy of Sound store in Nottingham, UK. I was looking for a fixed bridge/set neck guitar and since I cannot afford a Gibson (yet), I tried some epiphones and then chose this one. I paid 329 £. I was hooked by its dark look and great feel.

It sounds powerful and its finish is great. You can play any style on it but you'll get the most out of it with really heavy tunes.
It has great sustain and the neck is really fast.
The satin finish and the 12th fret inlay are really cool.

It's not very well balanced which is something I'll live with since I like so much everything else about this guitar.
The toggle switch won't take too much Tom Morelo tunes, but I'm gonna change it anyway.

Well it's mahogany all around plus ebony fretboard, which is great combination.
All hardware is black and it has grover tuners also black.
General quality is above my expectations. I only had to adjust intonation a little bit and then it sounded flawless.

If you like BLACK SABBATH, you should buy this guitar.
