I stopped in at the music store to pick up some strings today. I played a few lefties before I spied this lefty cherry red Epi Dot. I played it for a bit unplugged and noticed it had a pretty nice ring to it. So I decided to plug it into a blues deluxe that was sitting there. For $445 (Can) I wasn't expecting much but I was surprised. I ended up playing for quite a while. All pickup positions sounded great and it sustained sweetly. It left me scratching my head and trying to justify another guitar in my collection.
