More about the construction of this guitar

Featuring a mahogany body & neck, and rosewood fingerboard with traditional trapezoid inlays, it comes with a pair of high-output Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups. It also features chrome hardware, Grover tuners, with the new Epiphone LockTone locking Tune-o-matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece that gives it the sustain that this guitar is famous for.
This Epiphone is more affordable than its big brother, but that doesn’t mean this guitar skimps on sound or quality. Visually and ergonomically, it is almost identical to the more expensive model. Put one of these beauties in your hands and neither you nor your listeners will be able to tell the difference.
With the cutaway style, you get better access to the frets. A single cutaway allows the fingers to move past the neck-body join. In an acoustic guitar, cutaways can change the sound quality of the guitar. In an electric guitar, it makes no difference if it is a single cutaway or a double cutaway. It all comes down to style
and fingering preference.
