    UPS just delivered this morning. Purchased on Reverb this week. Not disappointing. Looks great. Plays great. Nice thick D neck. Mini hums sound very good. Really a big guitar. Same thickness as a Sorrento and Century but wider lower bout 17 1/4. Sorrento is 16. Century 16 1/2. Nothing I don't like about this guitar. Anyway, pics below.

    I love that it has a three-piece neck. Congrats!

    Does that have a block or is it fully hollow?

    Very nice.

    I waffled back and forth on that one. Very Nice! But alas buying during a purge makes little sense plus I would have to sell 2 to get one. Congrats on a fine looking guitar.

    The plus is when playing unplugged is there is enough acoustic volume to hear well without disturbing others at home. Plugged in it sounds good depending on the amplifier and settings. it can feed back like any other hollow body according to volume and gain settings. I do like the mini hums that came in it and doubt I would change them out for anything else.

    There is nothing I do not like about that guitar either. It certainly looks like it is built like the classic Epiphone’s with the three piece neck. That is a beautiful guitar.
