scorpiolino's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ouch! Not bad at all"

Epiphone Wilshire Pro
Made in China
Volume and tone with the possibility of further improvement by raising the volume buttons
3 position selector micro
Possibility to adjust the pickups before, artery, the two and more thanks to the 2 volume buttons that are slightly up

Caution must provide a jack ELBOW, because if you give a yank down one key decision so be careful if you give a final blow was the PUNK!
Channel collé.Bonne mechanical!
Small problem swith micro side, if the guitar is tilted too much toward the thigh sitting in playing position the selector changes position.

UTILIZATION

Never seen lighter! A LIGHTWEIGHT!
Handle very end asking a little time to adaptattion
small anecdote "after several hours of games, I then took my fender telecaster and I really felt that his neck was twisted so I threw a glance"
Great ergonomics and sound is good for rock, blues and punk grunchy and not too much to the metal! It is rather easy on a guitar to play!

SOUNDS

Crystalline fat is possible!
Style rock, blues, punk and grunch (why not?)

OVERALL OPINION

Several days heavy use!
I have a Gibson, a Fender and an Ibanez and I must say what is very agréable8
really nice color and look very pretty!
We will see in the long run?

bolodoi's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Epiphone Wilshire Pro
Very comfortable flat mid stick, mini humbucker, very correct factory setting

UTILIZATION

The guitar is light and well balanced access to the treble is very good

SOUNDS

Quite surprised by the sound very clear and nice foils in bridge pickup and split the neck pickup position is hot and very responsive to the dynamics of the game,
Blues for plain or with a slight crunch is not bad at all surprised that it sounds as well as plans for funk, for distortion sounds on the other hand quickly becomes rough (too bad given the bands playing on the Original (MC5 and Radio Birdman) I play on classic 30 and account to use it in my backup guitar Guild 60d s after a change of pickups (Fat Mini-Fat Alnico V magnets in the gfs has 35.95 the mic) I think it will not hurt and will give a good guitar for cheap with an unmistakable look, though a few economies were made, chrome around the pickup selector seems poorly cast and cheap microphones and very correct in his clear and crunch become clear insufisant with overdrive or distortion


OVERALL OPINION

1 month, this guitar is very beautiful and with some customization (less than 100 euros micro nut) they will be fine (it is already well in clean and crunch), I am giving notice of the new pickups are mounted, the timber corp is downright beautiful and it sounds very good unplugged
Yes I will ever buy at this end, with good micro and better at GFS saddle that provides a beautiful and original instrument under 300 euros
sounds of the mini humbuker after me like a mixture of p90 and humbuker to do with better microphones qualitée
Note the guitar surely rise with new microwave but I note in the basic version

trudjer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Epiphone Wilshire Pro
- Made the "Epiphone Custom Shop '... plain in China.
- Mahogany body, set neck
- Fixed Bridge (tune-o-matic), FOR A CHANGE BIGSBY
- 22 Frets
- Channel rather thin and flat

= Average Finishes (pickguard a bit poorly cut, the edges of paintings not very clear)

Cons by the guitar sounds good vacuum even with 09-42 strings, surely a sign of wood after all fairly good

UTILIZATION

- The handle is very comfortable, fast, it would however won qqes 10th of seconds if it had been painted and unpainted dull, but the goal was to better "stick" to the original. Certainly my next change ...

- Good ergonomics, light weight, good balance (improved according to me by my Bigsby which adds a bit back)



SOUNDS

- Original Pickups: Humbuckers Epiphone classical guitar on this untested = I bought it with Seymour Duncan "Phat Cat" (P90 humbucker format), changed quickly for Gotoh humbuckers ( Japanese pickups early 80's)

- The sound with these new pickups is very close to a Les Paul at the time, and more originality, weight and especially the price and less!
They have much more personality than the Epiphone humbuckers I have on another guitar (I did not really like the sound of Phat Cat "softer" and muffled)

- I play on an amp head lamps Blackheart "Little Giant" + Celestion


OVERALL OPINION

I use the guitar for 1 year 1 / 2
The combination Amp-Guitar-Pickups is perfect, at least that's exactly what I was looking for, ie a supplemental to my Stratocaster guitar (and thus quite different) and cheap enough to not be afraid of tinkering !

The finish is obviously not that of a guitar at 2000 €, but we must get past this first impression of guitar "cheap" (surely reinforced by the weight down), it is so nice to play it quickly forgets his small defects

I found the quality / price excellent, because by changing 2 or 3 tips depending on your needs we create a super small scratch original and not expensive (mine came back with all the mods, 300 €) &% &% &% &%
