Good point - you might have just saved me some money.... I played the EJ this AM, and it sounds nice, good neck, needs a little fretwork and some Elixir strings, but it's a nice guitar, especially for the $$.If you're playing in a typical venue with an average PA, nobody's going to notice whether you're playing a 1940's Martin or a $500 Epiphone. As long as it has good action, tuning stability and an even tonal range you should be OK.
The thread has drifted off into gearhead territory..Girlchild went and got her Dad's old Eppy fixed on Saturday.
She did a little guitar tuition when she was about 13...got bored.
Sitting upstairs I hear the riff to Don't Fear The Reaper followed by a pretty dam sweet attempt at the intro to Roadhouse Blues..
It's like hearing a ghost
She's only been practicing since Saturday Afternoon..Good instrument helps I think.
I don't know about the Epi copy but the Alvarez SJ200 copy I had is still one of my favorite guitars I've ever owned. Stopping in Grunhert's Guitars in Nashville (worth a pilgrimage) the 1960 SJ200 they had was the pick of the whole store, and they had everything from original '50s Strats to 1930s jazzboxes in perfect condition. It's a wonderful guitar.Gibson SJ200 /vs/ Epiphone EJ200???
Getting in to an acoustic project, and I'm not real thrilled w/the idea of leaving the Martin I inherited from my Dad up on stage. A buddy has a maple-backed SJ200, and it's a wonderful, booming voiced guitar. It's also quite pricey, and I saw an EJ200 for 1/10th - @ $499. Any of our guitar players ever do a back to back comparison between these two? if the Epi plays well enough and doesn't sound thin - I'd feel a lot less anxious gigging it out than I would an irreplaceable heirloom.
Appreciate the thoughts!
"That song is fine and all but it could really use some more jazz harmony..."I’m the resident drummer here, I guess. Gonna meet up with a guitar player this weekend that wants to play cow punk. Stuff like this:
I like it. My buddies and I could blues that up pretty nice, I think."That song is fine and all but it could really use some more jazz harmony..."I’m the resident drummer here, I guess. Gonna meet up with a guitar player this weekend that wants to play cow punk. Stuff like this:
