Get off your Epiphone bullshit. They are not what you keep pushing so knock it off. If you think they are so great get one and go.gggSpatula thing was a joke , got it exactly right though that’s the one you need. Could stick it right in there and have it hang out nice. All you would have to do is stick it in there and pry and the whole fretboard goes bye bye. Taking it in this weekend and no haven’t done so yet lmao. Hard to get around atm. It’s going so far, farther than Jeff bezo. Epiphone factory would laugh at this I think
What is the name of the shop ? You said it was in Chicago ? Please do tell ?Little backstory for the fun of it; while they were fetching the ugly puppy for me in shop I asked if they had a Dsl40cr in stock. I was told no man sorry, oh wait actually we have this defected tolex white Marshall, for 50 off. Had no room in my car for it. Call the store on the way home hey man I was just in there ya know the one with the Les Paul tv special yada yada. “Yeah bro hold on a second, lemme get that for you” type of deal, was retrieving the card and info. Another person answered the phone real snarky like a nerdy-cool guy esque attitude saying “yeah BRO you gotta come in here and do that BRO we can’t do that over the phone BRO” staring at my family member in shock in the car they’re like what’s wrong? I’m like they’re totally rude chicken f-‘ers with an attitude being jerks! Total shock to be honest. Call the 866 line tell the lady what just occurred she was supposedly sorry, got me a brand new Marshall for the same sale price as the defected one on sale in store. However I am suspicious slightly. Why tell me no amp in stock in store; to find two in front of my face a white busted one and a new one? I get an email this morning saying it’s already in stock which I find even more suspicious! So they don’t have any stock but have floor models? But get mine to arrive in less than a day? I called now and asked, if it was new in box or if they’re just giving me the floor model now. Supposedly it’s new. I feel like these guys are absolutely playing games with me now, and yesterday didn’t want my money after spending 1,799 with them plus $40 that day in store on a book, plug, picks. Seems they don’t want to do business to be honest.
Man why the hate and disdain? I’ve picked up at least 6 Epiphones and while the setup on one SG traditional wasn’t good, all of them felt great and had great binding, DC Pro beck is similar to the tv special. Les Paul modern was nice too. You ever try them? I have. No complaints other than a poor setup from shipment nothing like this. Speaks for itself maybe.Get off your Epiphone bullshit.

I've picked up a few recently. The Les Paul was great, the Crestwood was not. In general they are well finished. Good luck with the return process.Man why the hate and disdain?

It was more to do with the general setup. Super high action (maybe that was a result of fret buzz...don't know), nut had high string slots, bridge had to be raised right up off the body. It just played yuck. Whereas the LP was smooth and well set up. Different price points I might add.Did the Crestwood have fret issues? Seemed like all the Epi's I tried out at GC had serious fret buzzing.
