I think so. I bought an Epiphone Antique Korina Flying V Special Run from AMS during the pandemic. Waited 10 weeks for it. It was perfect out of the box - set up just to my taste, pickups sound great, cosmetically unblemished. Big improvement over my Dot’s initial quality:I’ve come to believe that Epiphone is one of those “too good to last” values. Their quality keeps getting better while the prices remain reasonable. Competition, maybe?
