MGR/Derek Mok's review"Epiphone Emily the Strange G-310"

Epiphone Emily the Strange G-310
Bought at Guitar Center in Hollywood for $300. The artwork was so distinctive that I couldn't resist, and I'd wanted a backup for my Gibson SG anyway.

The graphics are very well applied, beautifully colour co-ordinated, with matching artwork on the headstock, customized control knobs, and a special 12th-fret inlay. The body is heavier than my Gibson SG Classic's and feels more like a "slab", but one surprising advantage to this is that this SG is less neck-heavy than most because the body counterweights the neck better. The feel is good, the neck is better than any Epiphone I've played so far: Better feel than my Dot archtop, and better than SGs I've tried in stores and my friend's Epiphone Les Paul Standard. Excellent tuning machines, too, extremely smooth and responsive.

Like many of Epiphone's guitars, the pickups are a little bland. They sound good, but don't have much character. The pickup selector switch is a little stiff, though I'd rather it be that than floppy and loose as on my Epiphone Dot.

The bolt-on neck joint seems a little rough and the classic SG body bevelling isn't as pronounced as it should be, but the great finish and design work deserve high marks -- the look of this guitar has a distinctively psychedelic feel, The fretwork is smooth and neat, and the hardware is solid (especially the tuning machines).

To be honest, I'm probably pre-sold on the stylistic appeal of this guitar. But I can also fairly say that my hands feel good on this guitar, and I'm very picky in that field -- many guitars that I thought I would love (the Gibson ES-333, the Line 6 Variax, the Rickenbacker 360 12-string, the Epiphone version of the Firebird VII) have all been ruled out based on left-hand feel. This one I didn't have a problem with, and I'm very happy with it. And it's definitely a lovely art piece to look at.

Epiphone Emily the Strange G-310
(Originally written by damiansdick/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Made in China.

Emily The Strange finish, beautiful limited edition.

Mahogany neck.

Basswood body.

Bolt-on neck.

Tune-o-matic and stopbar bridge.

22 frets

Two 700T and 650R humbuckers.

Volume and tone controls per pickup.

3-way toggle switch.

No surprises: it's an SG!


Black and varnished neck.

It feels very pleasant and has an ergonomic profile.

It's round like the Invader neck and slimmer than the G400.

Typical SG playability.

Emily The Strange finish, beautiful limited edition.

The guitar is light and well-balanced. Very pleasant to play with.

The unplugged sound is alright.


Regarding sound,

it's important to notice that I changed the pickups.

Original pickups: 5 points out of 10.

I played it with a Marshall 80/80 and a Roland Micro Cube.

The pickups have an average quality.

The clean sound has no character.

The distortion is a bit better but it's not a Gibson.

Same pickups as on the Epiphone EM-1 and other G 310, you'll need to replace them.

With GFS pickups: 9 out of 10 points

The guitar has a good unplugged sound so it's worth good pickups.

I installed GFS Liverpool Vintage Alnico Humbucker Chrome R12 and R11 pickups.

I played it with a Marshall 80/80 and a Roland Micro Cube.

The sound is totally different.

The clean sound has the typical GFS character.

The distortion is surprising. The guitar doesn't sound like an SG but it sounds good.

The change of pickup does add a lot to the guitar.


Interesting value for money and the guitar has an original look.

I was looking for a nice SG guitar at an affordable price.

As soon as I saw this Epiphone Emily The Strange 'Limited Edition'

I fell in love.

Good manufacturing quality.

The guitar looks even better with the new pickups.

Good value for money even after paying for the replacement pickups.

After buying it I tested an Epiphone G 400, a Gibson Faded, and many copies.

This guitar can't compete with an original SG but it compare fine to all cheap copies.

It does the job after replacing the pickups.

It's a nice-looking guitar (but that's a matter of taste).

You'll find countless forums about it on the web.

It seems to be a trendy guitar.

Based on my experienced I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

It's not a great guitar but it's ok with good pickups.

samick factory comes to priori.plutôt good sign, it is a serious mark.
handle referred, I think what has 22frets


I use it mainly to learn to play and when to play, and it marche.j 'I changed the factory settings. it is chronic .... not in epi, eh, in moi.j 'managed to get a low enough action for me to facilitate the bends and hammers stroke my strings in 11 49 ... not very big, but when you déébutes the bends of 1ton 1/2 with atrial ...
short, I love playing on this guitar.
I think change the cabling later, and if I miss everything and it looks good, I raconterai.sinon, I'll stay in my corner and I'll duck.


c't'une scrapes with zambeukeurs, then guess what we like her?


I like this guitar, and pus is dear to me has offered, as I see reason to complain, so I complain pas.et I love the look ..
and know that Emily has a brand that applle cosmic debris, it gives me the impression of paying tribute zappa, and frankly, everyone should play this guitar just for ça.et he played on sg in pus ... but in true gibson solid.

Then it is a Epiphone SG, 22 Frets, Bolt pais round too, that the same CHARACTERISTICS G310. Dco beautiful, the photo reflte many colors, red is not red SG, Itis a little clearer, even the knobs have a nice psychdelique dco. The one I test frieze on the ropes a bit serious and not n'tait trs well rgl harmonic point of view.


So round handle but not too much, you can go fast enough it is good fun but below the box 15 Bolt because we did something pretty bad ...
As it is an SG trslgre comfortable saying anything over the ...
For sound is not bad at all, not counting the sound of a US SG is a bit worse but still good as long as we trs not seek galer that of a Gibson, it would be the forcment is not for a. As it is an SG trslgre. A little fat as it should but not too much a handle mmicro darker than round, but the bridge pickup a lot of attack.


This guitar should rev out all the big crunch and distos, cleans for a really sounds gross, a chorus would be welcome ...
I tested it on a Marshall MF350 store (because the best amp c'tait the store while it is using ...) It's good attack model makes you want to play the wholesale spot and it is quite was effective, without being ultra prcise away from her and drooling everywhere and plutt is a good point.
So a good scratch for fans of rock hard rock mtal sending but not too much in (around 350).


For résumé I test an hour in the store, I like his sound a little fat but retained even when the COD and (even if I prfr red ptant more than the strawberry-crasis), I like the handle for less Access in acute because I think its roundness is not a teachers to go rather quickly.
A good scratching Cheap worth what it's worth, since one does not seek to have the sound of a Gibson 2000 in the hands ...
