Sounds great and is beautiful.

Down around the first several frets they were fine, but got rougher and rougher as you went up.

I have played guitar for 30 years and have ownd many during that time. This is by far my most favorite of all guitars that I have owned. Straight from the vendor I found it to play beautifully and exactly how I wanted. I have not found it lacking for anything and have found no need to make adjustments or any change in it's configuration.

I bought this guitar based on so many good reviews. However, it seems that most reviewers have an alterior interest or flat do not know guitars. The sound was thin with the gibson 10 strings that come with the guitar. I replaced them with 12s. Seems the 1st and 6th string would not stay on the bridge when playing the gutar. The reason for this is simple. The angle of the relief from the bridge to the Bixby is very little and there is not enough pressure to keep the strings on the guitar while playing unless one has an extremely light touch. Also, this guitar has a long enough and thick enough neck for 24 frets. The spacing on the upper neck is too large for some frets. The fact is, it is really an 18 effective fret neck. The fixes are easy for Epiphone and although they have a great idea, the engineering was terrible. The Bixby that should have been used was the one with the additional bar to make a more drastic angle to keep the strings on while playing. The bridge should be deep V slotted. The neck should have, and there is plenty of room, a 22 or 24 fret neck. The guitar does sound good with 12s but play light.

Totally agree with above Amazon user. I can say the same thing with 30+ years of playing.
This Swingster is a absolutely fantastic player!! In my case even a pre-owned one. Look, sound, feel, neck and finish are just fab!!

Highly recommended.

Bought this guitar after bed bugs knocked literally every other instrument I own out of commission (they're stuck in plastic wrap for another 3 months). First of all, this guitar looks gorgeous. The white binding, the popping orange, the headstock... It all looks like this guitar costs at least 1,500 dollars. Really, it's a looker. On top of that, the thing plays and sounds like a dream. The pick ups are versatile given the push pull tone knobs that convert either of the humbuckers to a single coil at a moments notice. The blending you can do with them is something I would never expect from a guitar at this price. The Bigsby feels great. It is a bit difficult to restring the guitar, but nothing that can't be dealt with. The fret board is super playable and the thumb knobs on the bridge allow for quick and easy action adjustment.

As a working musician playing for 12 years, having had (and had stolen) a Gibson Les Paul Classic, I highly recommend this guitar. You will not find a better one for the price. Not by a long shot.

I plan to purchase one of these guitars as soon as I have the money together. I've been reading up on them online and I've seen, held and played the guitar in all 3 colors.

I plugged it in to a Fender Twin and got some really nice sounds out of it. The push-pull parallel knobs that activated the single and dual coil properties of the "Swingbucker" pickups really did cover the tone spectrum. I was able to coax a variety of sounds from it, from a very smoky humbucker sound that would be nice for Jazz or Blues to a pretty snappy Tele tone which would be great for Rockabilly, Country or Surf. At one point I dialed in a nice "jangly" tone that had a nice mid-60's "Revolver" feel to it. With the twin up on 10, the volume pots on the guitar were not as gradual as I'd have wanted. They tend to `jump' into action, being almost silent at 1 and then popping in fairly loudly at 2. That can be a problem when playing in a quieter setting.

But with the controls on the Fender amp all the way up and the guitar volume down, I got a very respectable breakdown from the amp, allowing the guitar to produce a nice classic rock growl. Not sure how headbangers will feel about it, but the rock and punk crowd should be able to get what they need from the guitar.

The push-pull parallel knobs that activated the single and dual coil properties of the "Swingbucker" pickups really did cover the tone spectrum!

The vibrato arm is very responsive and comfy to use. SO much more so than the standard bigsby flat arm.

The guitar is semi-hollow, but lighter than a Sheraton in my estimation. The block position markers are not as attractive as those on the Sheraton, but were nicely fit. The "vine" headstock adds to the overall vibe.
