The shipment of the guitar to my home was fast and with no problems and with efficient double boxing protection. The price compared to a way overpriced Gibson ES-335 is amazing. I had an older 64 Epiphone that was similar looking and had a tremolo bar. Although I loved it for it's jazz sounding round toned Gibson HB pickups, I actually like the bite and a bit of a growl I get from the P90 pickups. A warmer sound. But with a little backoff of the volume pots, I can get a pretty round tone out of the new one too. It feels sizably heavier than my old Epiphone.
