            I Love this little guitar, it sounds really sweet , I lowered the action and had the fret ends dressed and put a fresh pair of D'addario 12/53 on it. and the pickup system and electronics are really good ,sounds great through my acoustic amp or my Fender frontman 65R, Easy on the fingers and the eyes. really beautiful guitar. Craftsmanship is top notch

            Unplayable out of the box

                  Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary "1964" Caballero Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  Awful set up. The A D and G strings had sitar-like buzzes on the first 4 frets. Unplayable. The strings coming out of the bridge peg-holes took weird angles between the holes and the actual bridge. I had to loosen the strings and realign them to get them running in straight lines from peg holes to tuning pegs. I put the guitar back in the box and returned it the next day.

                  Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary "1964" Caballero Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  I have finally found the travel guitar I need. Objectives: Nice Looking, Well Made, Good Tone, Playability, Electric, Inexpensive. The Epiphone meets every objective. This is a very nice guitar. Fit and Finish is exceptional for this price. Tone is more than adequate. Neck, frets, intonation, all more than expected at this price. I bought the Mahogany removed the pick guard, added new strings, and brass bridge pins. I'm good to go. Thanks Epiphone for the attention to detail and quality control. Truly this is a no brainer if you want a very nice guitar for the money! Thanks MF for, as usual, excellent price, no hassle guarantee, and quick shipping. You guys and gals do indeed rock my world!

                  History Repeats Itself...With Upgrades

                  By Jimifan69

                  from Memphis, TN

                  Pros

                  • incredible quality

                  Cons

                  • Hard to find case

                  Best Uses

                  • Fingerpicking

                  Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary "1964" Caballero Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  This is 1964 all over again! As an owner of an original '64 Caballero, the only difference in a blind challenge is, obviously; the difference in a guitar which is brand new and one that's 50 years old.

                  I have the Mahogany finished model, and thanks to Musician's Friend...It actually arrived in tune!
                  This is not a replacement for my '64, but a guitar I felt I needed to purchase; how often do you get an opportunity to buy a guitar and its near double for just about the same money-adjusted for inflation?

                  So I suggest you buy one, right now! Don't even read the rest of this review, order one now.

                  If you play folk, alternative or blues fingerpicking or "just a strummer"; not only will this guitar amaze you with its quality, it will also help you make friends, lose weight and in general make you rich and famous.

                  OK, you got me...everything after quality is up to you.But buy one before Epiphone realizes what they have one and stops production or jacks the price!
