I play in a praise band. I put the magnetic pickups through my DV Mark 212 tube amp (a hidden gem!) and the nanomag pickup through my Fishman Loudbox Mini. This guitar is perfect for classic rock. The Epiphone Probuckers sound great and they are easy to dial in. The nanomag is a bit harder to dial in, but it's great once you do. Onboard tuner is an excellent idea - it's not on the headstock, but on the bridge pickup ring. It's unobtrusive and works fine. Neck is straight, no fret buzz, and intonation was spot-on right out of the box. A real winner from Epiphone.
