    All right then, as the title indicates, and after several Research, it came down to this two ladies here. The epi Lucille and the Hagstrom Viking dlx custom. I'm to buy one of them just can't decide which! And sadly i can't try them out anywhere here where i live so please owners or people that have played them, help me out. Which one would you guys go for?? And why ? Please save comments like "Every epiphone sucks, period" or anything like that.
    Really appreciate your help !

    hrmmm. That's a tough one.

    I like the neck more on the Hagstrom. Ebony if I remember correctly and just a particularly comfortable neck. I'd say you have a little more hollow sound on the Hagstrom too.

    I think the extra tone pot on the Epi is gimicky.

    Yes. I'd go with the Hagstrom, but not by a big margin.
