We make no bones about it. We LOVE the Epiphone Elitist guitars! We love 'em and we don't care who knows it! Of course the 335 is a classic design can handle jazz, rock, country, blues, indie rock etc etc etc etc
And chances are this Elitist will put a Gibby to shame! Truly incredible.
This Elitist Dot is finished in au nautrale! Take away the fancy colors and paint jobs, and just let this instrument stand on its own. Stunning. The "C" maple neck has a comfortable, playable profile (.835" @ 1st fret, .955" @ 12th), and a 10" radius. It's loaded up with a 1 11/16" nut. And it weighs in at just 8.8 lbs!
The stock Epi USA humbuckers sound fat with clarity and bite. The bridge pickup gives an excellent cutting lead tone and of course makes a great rock rhythm tone. Of course the creamy neck pickup is warm, round and down to clown. Throw on some fuzz and be whisked away to a land of perfect lead tone.
This one is lightly used and super clean. If you look closely you'll see some moderate pick swirl on the pickguard (I mean, that's what it's there for!). Everywhere is way, way, way clean. Nearly spotless.
All guitars leaving Eastside Music Supply are freshly setup in house by our team of badass luthiers and will ship with zero issues. This guitar will ship next day with the original hardshell case!
Ready for stage and studio!
