1989 Epiphone SQ180 – £399

NEW ARRIVAL  The Gibson J180 Everly Brothers has to be one of their most striking looking guitars, but with prices inaccessable for most, the Epiphone SQ180 is a more affordable alternative, but with Gibson’s heritage. With a Spruce top, and Maple back and sides, it has a punch to the sound, with a warm bass and driven mids and trebles. When strummed it has a room filling sound, yet when fingerpicked it has great clarity on individual notes. Visually, the gloss black finish contrasts beautifully with the tortoise pickguard, and the star fingerboard inlays are really eye catching. With a mini jumbo body size, it’s a very comfortable guitar to play. It has a well played feel to it, with quite a lot of visible playwear, but no cracks or repairs. The guitar has a soundhole pickup fitted, which sounds great plugged in.
