Excellent quality for the price that it's offered at. I love the sound of the Alnico Classic PRO Humbuckers that it comes with and the feel of the neck. I recommend it to anyone who like to have an affordable ES335.

Good overall guitar, needed setup (neck relief, intonation, lowered action, some frets needed to be filed down, complete fret polishing)… and obviously new strings. Mine is about 8.3lbs. Pups fully fonctionnal and warm (when used in right context)
A reliable compromise for the overly expensive gibson real mccoy

I’ve been playing guitar for 22 years, and have been through a lot of different instruments. This is the first Epiphone I’ve bought since my Les Paul that would have been built in the 90’s (sold it years ago to the same person I bought it from).
Here’s the real deal: I’m positively blown away by the fit and finish of this guitar. I did need to do some setup when I got it home. I pulled the factory strings off and set the intonation, the neck relief and the bridge height/action. With these minor changes that you could do yourself with basic tools and a Youtube instructional video, the guitar plays as well as any Gibson I’ve laid hands on.

Picked up this beauty and it certainly does not disappoint. The finish is something to be marvelled. The feel is incredible. Epiphones has really nailed the Inspired by Gibson series with this ES-335. Right out of the box the setup was great considering it came straight from overseas. I was expecting some adjustments to be made but none were needed except needing to be tuned up and right away it felt and sounded amazing. The medium jumbo frets are smooth and well polished and they don't make a scratching sound when bending your strings. The c-shaped neck fits mine and probably most people's hands perfectl. The nut was perfectly cut to enhance tonality and keeping the instrument in tune considering it's a three aside traditional headstock. The aesthetics on this machine are amazing. I carefully examined The binding expecting to be some flaws considering the guitars price point. None whatsoever. It is as if the wood in the plastic on the binding are all one piece. The pickups have a great output. They're not too hot so it doesn't distort easy but when you want to get some dirt they sound amazing without the guitar giving feedback considering it is a semi hollow. The CTS pots roll on and roll off with great articulation, they go from 0 to 10 extremely smooth without that issue where you don't have signal until you're around four or five on the pot like some other guitars. The selector switch is high quality and isn't loose. The electronics respond like you would expect him to respond from its big brother on the Gibson model. Incredible clean and saucy dirt from this classic. If you're a fan of classic looking guitars as I am go try one of these out for yourself you probably won't be disappointed.

I wasn’t sure what to expect as I could not go into the store due to the pandemic so I purchased it based on the reviews that I found online. The fit and finish on this guitar are Incredible and surpassed my expectations...the picture on this site does not do it any justice. It is an amazing guitar and a great value. You will not be disappointed!

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.
