If you know someone who's been interested in picking up electric guitar for some time but doesn't have a lot of experience, this would be an excellent gift for them. The fact that it's only $120 makes it an easy go-to for something quick and easy. Epiphone as of late has also been stepping up their game with better structure and design choices than other guitar companies, so this little number has a really cool vintage style akin to 60's-era mod rock. Sadly, I doubt professional guitarists would want to go for something like this: the single coil pickups and plastic exterior could be a bit of a turn-off for seasoned pros. But I'd definitely give this as a gift to a kid who's looking to start with something fun, simple and effective. This is a Sam Ash Employee review.
