In 1975 I bought a brand new Gibson V so I didn?t expect much from the Epiphone as compared to my Gibson.When it arrived I gave it a close inspection for damage, there was none. Next I closely inspected it for quality. Everything was far beyond satisfactory. The quality of the hardware, the gloss black Grover tuning keys and well machined components of the tremolo were a surprise to me considering the low cost. Then I plugged it into my Ampeg Rocket Reverb. The hair on the back of my neck was standing up. This thing sounds GREAT! That clean, clear, chunky crunch of those humbuckers is such a sweet sound. I hammered the Floyd Rose up and down (I love a floating tremolo) several times and it stayed dead on in tune! It came out of the box in almost perfect tune and stayed in tune for the next three hours. The action was just a little high beyond the 12th fret but a quick adjustment remedied that. I had originally planned to buy a Gibson V, with the stopbar tailpiece. To get a Gibson V with the locking nut and a Floyd Rose would cost a few grand. I bought this guitar because it was such a great price for any guitar with a locking nut and Floyd Rose trem. I had planned to buy another Gibson V in addition to the Epi but, why? This thing is just too cool! Now, instead of the Gibson V, I?m going to buy a Gibson ES335 to balance my collection.I?ve owned Just about every electric Gibson made, more than a few Fenders and a bunch of other well made axes but this thing is one of the best values I?ve seen in my 40 years of playing guitar!Get one. You won't regret it!

I love this guitar.

I honestly think this guitar is better than the Gibson Gothic series. I would recommend it to any one. Great sound, great feel, cheap.

Cool Axe

By BillHale

from Woodland Park, Co.

This is a nice guitar for the price. You can play the thing sitting down if you sit on the front edge of the seat, put the lower wing of the guitar under your right thigh. This will hold the neck up. This is my 3rd Epiphone and all three are wonderful instruments for the price.

Awesome Guitar, Awesome Value

By KerryKing666

from New Castle, CO

This was my second flying v that i have purchased. I was very satisfied with the first one, but i purchased this guitar to get a heavier sound when i was playing heavier music. The Bridge Pickup is incredible, although i plan on replacing both pickups with EMGs. The Tremolo is a great addition, i can finally play those kerry king-type vibratos in my solos. This is a great guitar, and i suggest stop drooling over it, and start saving your $$$$.

Gothic V Review

By Death Metal Maniac

from Jacksonville, FL

Even though this is a low end (on the price) guitar, the look really turned me on so I bought it. But the pick-ups suck. I through in some EMG-81's and that fixed that problem. The axe was extremely light, which also made the neck want to dive bomb straight toward the floor unless you buy a really fat strap with grip or maintain pressure on the neck with your hand to prevent dive bombing. For the price you get an awesome axe that needs a little tweaking to bring out an insane monster in it. I recommend it for intermediate players. Again, this guitar is a lot of fun and you get what you pay for.

My guitar!!!

By Iain Davies-Rcb6N

from Rome, Italy

I got this on Christmas 2004 and it didn't seem to be new because it was the guitar made for me. The pickups are very good and have a good crunch to them but one day depending if I really want one I might get a seymour duncan dimebucker for that extra crunch. It does take ages to put a string on and the head falls down when you leave it but besides that, I am completely satisfied.
