Closest StoreNorth Vancouver, British Columbia
I had the big Acoustic guitar room to myself on Sale Friday.
I lined up these three guitars. A Gibson J200 Studio, The Epiphone J200 Studio (SCE) and The Epiphone J200 Inspired by Gibson. Note the Epiphone J200 Inspired by is not a 'Masterbuilt' guitar - check Gibson's website to see which ones are.
Gibson J200 Studio: The sound was Rich/Full/Superb 10/10.
The Playability was Very Good - 9/10.
The Looks (its a plain version of the J200) - 8/10.

Epiphone Inspired By: The sound is clear but 'middley' it sounds quite different from the Gibson. Lacking base, and it's more obvious the harder you play. When you play it quietly the sound is clear & tuneful (perfect intonation).
Sound: 8/10 - I like to hear that base string thunder.
Playability 10/10 - Yes, smoother than the Gibson!
Looks 10/10 - Yes, even nicer than the Gibson!
Beautiful Flamed Maple, real mother of pearl inlays, bone nut and saddle, flawless finish.

The Epiphone J200 SCE Studio
Gorgeous vintage colour with glossy finish - Beautiful!
Cutaway Body -Gold Grovers, On-board Tuner & Pickup- Full thickness body. The Gibson and 'Inspired By' are both slightly narrower body guitars.
The Sound was fuller than the 'Inspired By' but not as good as the Gibson: 9/10.
The Looks: Beautiful detail and finish, but plastic inlays instead of Pearl.

I swapped by 'Inspired By' for the Studio.
The sound is a deal breaker - it has to sound right.

I would like to play another 'Inspired By' to see if it sounds the same as the one I purchase and returned. Still a great guitar but not the sound I wanted.

The Epiphone Studio J200 sounds great and responds (the sound improves and fills out) when you play a little harder.

I had been playing guitars at all of the local L&Ms since January and made this purchase during Gibson month. My budget was more than $1700. Its got a full sound and the fingerboard is easy to run with my hands. What made me purchase it in Burlington is that everytime I go in the Acoustic Guitars are in tune. Bryan Henderson made it a perfect purchase along with HSC, T-shirt, and gift card which I going to use for a strap. He is 1 of the familiar faces I see keeping the instruments in tune.

Dave,
Note: my rating is not worth anything as I have not played this guitar. But I loved my Casino Coupe. Played like a dream... a really good dream!
I've worked retail, and corporate side in the sports industry, and reading everyone else reviews: you must have picked up a few guitars in a bad batch. It wasn't just your singular guitar- there must have a problem in the factory or with supplies, or equally shipping perhaps (humidity/temperature-time of year shipped, change in elevation?). That's weird though- that kind of stuff isn't normative, and to have 2 guitars like that in succession (there's a problem somewhere- the factory should be advised). Olivier below said that it was simply the best purchase of his life!!!! I had my eye on this guitar too. So good to know! Always noodle around fully in the shop, play the entire fret-board- just in case.

Got it love it! Down-the-line you may have to get a few things set up on it, but they throw free tuneup within one year.

I purchased 1 of these guitars about a month ago . The B and G string make an unusual harmonic buzzing sound (not just a clear note) took the guitar back to the store 3 times had their guitar Tech try to get it to stop this strange buzzing to no avail . The store replaced the guitar took 3-4 days to find another one with the same pick-up system nano mag nano flex pick-ups. Seems not all of these guitars are made with the same pick-up system. I just picked up my replacement and it has the same problem. I wanted a Jumbo with the stereo pick-ups so there is no other choice .I'm going to ask for my money back (If you can't play the guitar it's worth nothing ) great wall hanger for 800. Dollars.

I got this guitar today and its amazing! It sounds so smooth but it really packs a punch. Playing around with the settings currently (on my amp) and they all sound great. The tuner is awesome and saves me so much time.
If you like it, it's worth it.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
