I had one of these some time ago and a magic guitar. I don't normally like humbuckers but the mini buckers are so much brighter and clearer. As it turned out was a made in China model about 2012 from memory. One of the most enjoyable and sounding guitars I have ever played and the neck was amazing. I like low actions and these Chinese made Epis are incredibly easy to set up. Anyway, as luck would have it moved it on and regretted it ever since. Had the chance to grab another today which I did, unfortunately sight unseen but did as much due diligence as I could. I am hoping it will be as good as the last one. I have had Korean Epis....Sheratons, BB king and was never impressed with them. Always sounded soulless and flat. The Chinese Epis I have played have all been amazing. What are other peoples thoughts?
