I'm only 3 months into this journey to become a musician, so a beginner, but absolutely love everything about this guitar. I messed around in the early 90's on old electric while in college, but never learned chords or any songs. When my wife acquired her old Sears-quality kids guitar from her Mom, I put new strings for something to mess around with on the weekends. Several weeks later, I got a cheap First Act electric for $25. Several weeks later a nice Takamine acoustic as the ears "learned" the notes and chords better. While switching from this quality acoustic guitar to the First Act, it was clearly apparent the First Act was a piece of junk. Notes and chords were just not clear and just not enjoyable to play. Well, this Epiphone is an awesome step forward combined with the Marshall amp. While I want to progress to blues scales in time, I've purposely focused on the major and minor chords and seamless transition between them. This guitar expresses the notes of chords so clearly. What I love most is the ability to slightly modify major chords like from Dmaj to Dsus4 and have it translate so clear as an example. Prior I never used the effects on my Marshall because it just sounded like a mess, but this guitar solves that issue. After a whole weekend of use, it felt like a big leap forward just because of quality. The fretboard layout helped refine the chords I've learned so far, so all strings were clear. Really helped practicing bending, hammer-ons and pull offs too. At any rate, for the money, it's hard to beat. I suspect that if this journey continues a more expensive guitar may be warranted in a few years, but as others have said, this will always be a quality practice instrument. Especially considering we spend every other weekend at our beach bungalow and it is nice not having to transport every time.
Oh, it was good to go right out of the box except a slight tightening of the strings to get in tune. No dings... in perfect condition.
Update:11-12-15. I discovered another crack in the vicinity off one of the screws that holds the neck on. I sent several pictures to Gibson Products/Epiphone a few days ago but have yet to receive a reply. It seems to be a pretty good guitar but I expected it to not be cracked. Guitar was made in China. Photos attached.

Of course where it counts is the sound and it sounds just as good as it looks! Its a very clear and crisp tone with enough adjustment through the pickups and tone knob to get a decent range of sounds. I have seen that a few people have said that they have had difficulty keeping it in tune, which I admit I have had a bit of, particularly on the heavy E, A and D strings but not to a level where it is problematic. You probably will have to retune it every time you use it, but in my opinion you should be checking that every time anyway!
One thing I will say is that you get NOTHING else in the box. No strap, no picks, no bag, no nothing. This isn't a fault, as all the value is embedded in the guitar which is exceptional value in itself, but the only reason I mention it is if you are just starting out make sure to get everything else you need because you wont be able to wait to play it. Honestly, I think that this is the best thing I have ever bought from Amazon.
It arrived quickly and I was very impressed with it. It looks, feels and sounds way more expensive than it actually is. When when it's not plugged into an amp you can tell it's good
