The pictures they put on the websites don't do it justice at all.
Exactly. It's much much better in the flesh so to speak. Good thing I didn't bite on Guitar Center and Sam Ash's promos last week (which will make it ~$300 + tax for the guitar alone). I also prefer using the bridge pup so far.
Got it from Craigslist. He was originally asking $240 for the bundle, but I was able to negotiate it down to $200.
Price seemed too good to be true, that the night before meeting up, I had a nagging feeling that he might be selling a fake Epiphone. MyLesPaul.com has an extensive thread on fake Epiphones so I read up on that arming myself knowledge on how to spot a fake one.
Let's just say I was both relieved and excited that it was genuine and in like new condition. Also when I got home, I opened the Gator case compartment and I found a pack full of Fender picks, a set of Ernie Ball Slinkys, the guitar manual, strap and allen wrench.
