I really tried hard to like this instrument - it is somewhat exciting to see Epiphone trying to reach back to their roots. BUT - I have a New York built Zenith - it is a 1952, but still pre-Gibson - and this supposed re-creation would have Epi Stranopuolus rolling in his grave. I didn;'t get a chance to plug it in but acoustically, it is a wimp. I have to say the neck is good - very like my '53 - and fingering is easy - but I suspect it needs medium guage strings - I use Medium "Flat Tops" on my '52". My'52 is a cannon - very loud - really rich mid range tones - wonderful timbre and tone. The New model Zenith has none of that. It might be a solid spruce top, but is probably pressed, not carved - and the acoustic tone is very thin. Well - glad they tried, but they missed the mark. Compared to my New York Zenith, the lower bout is thinner, the upper bout is larger and the waist is thicker. I think they used a Gibson body image instead of properly researching the dimensions of the Zenith. Too Bad.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreBrampton, Ontario
I saw this in store and tried it. I felt it was not for me at first but I really liked it. I tried it over several months as I would visit the store. I did some research on it, youtube, reviews...etc. all good. Eventually I was at store with buddy he had the the "O" whole I had the "F" whole and we plugged it. as good ( although different acoustic sound) as it was it shines plugged in. Not different just better. like the acoustic sound is amplified and fine tuned but not lost. You have to hear it through different playing styles to appreciate it. I bought it. skip ahead a while buzzing started, and after the checking of obvious I took it back. L & M replaced it on the spot and set up the new one for me. Been flawless. The pick up failed on the first one. only reason I could not give it a 5 across the board. Its not for everyone but it is great guitar amazing sound and beautiful. the build quality is excellent. sweet addition to the stable. Service and support is as always excellent at L & M

I tried this guitar in the store, and it sounded beautiful. Although I felt a lack in volume when it was not plugged in. But, the feel of the guitar was great. Smooth neck and and nice sized body. The best feature was the sound when it was plugged in. Sounded like perfection. Great for jazz, blues or r&b musicians.

This guitar is really great. It feels really nice and soft, it has a really comfy thick neck, the guitar looks great, and it has a really good sound. I do not own this guitar but I don't see this guitar having a problem if I ever did. Everything about this guitar is great. If I had $1000 to spend on a guitar, I'd definitely consider getting this guitar.
