I have recently looked at some Dillion guitars and they seem to be a good alternative to Epiphone in many cases. They are guitars based on value rather than name brand. Nothing against Gibson, I'd love to have a beautiful sunburst Les Paul, but I am just not going to spend so much hard earned cash on a guitar. I am over the name brand thing. It's a tool to make music for me, nothing else. I don't need to be proud of a guitar, I want to play and enjoy it. No offense to anyone who owns pricey guitars that they dearly love. I also realize that no name guitars have no resale value. So what about Dillion?
