  1. Luke, sorry to hear Sweetwater didn't mention shipping charge. You did the right thing. There is no excuse for not mentioning the charge up front. I got a call from my rep at Sweetwater telling me they finally got in a "large load" of UJ's. However, I only saw four listed with weights and pics. I'm still going to wait a bit. I need two refrets badly on guitars I work with weekly, which will run me about $1600 for both guitars to be done. If I thought the neck on the UJ was going to be different from the 50 or so Epiphone necks I tried out, I would get one immediately. On a goo
  2. I've decided to wait for possible refurbs to appear. The response to the guitar and it's cost have caused me to reconsider my anxious anticipation. I am happy for those who received it and are happy with it. I am finding that there is a mixture of good and bad comments about Epiphone's quality between different forums. I don't believe everything I read on The Gear Page forums, as they have a strange attitude there about things. They seem to think Epiphone has a much better quality now then ever before. However, reading here has brought up questions on that topic which TGP doesn't conside
  3. Damn, these faults just keep appearing! Sorry to hear that Willsby! Not being from GB, I have never dealt with Anderton's, but I love their online videos. I learn a lot about gear from watching them. They were awarded the 2014 music store of the year this year. They look to keep their business well for customers. I just came from their site and they had 10 UJ's in stock, according to the site. I hope you get a good one this time. Thanks to them, I'm going to buy a Matrix VB 800 and NL12 cab. I called the USA shop on Sunday and got Andy Hunt, himself on the phone. After about 1/2 h
  4. I will have to look for that other company putting out the UJ to take a look-see. I won't be getting a UJ from Rondo. I'm so confused at this point that I am not sure what I will ultimately decide. I'm glad yours came in and proved to be satisfactory for you, Luke. I played over 30 Epiphones this past weekend, and none of them excited me. :(
  5. I am sorry to hear this talk about the QC, but happy for you all who were able to obtain a good UJ. This past weekend, I made a trip to Guitar Center and played every Epiphone in the store. They were a really big disappointment. As mentioned, the QC was almost non-existant. Not one guitar would have passed my inspection. The necks were all big shouldered and unfomcortable to play. They felt like they were made by a beginner, not a trained neck carver. Needless to say, I left feeling very disappointed and troubled. After reading all these remarks, I am going to reconsider getting
  6. [quote name= ' timestamp='1415378814' post='1587720] The shoulders feel big me me, mainly due to not having much experience with the shape. I find it quite difficult accessing the higher frets. Thanks, Ferdasyn. The higher frets will tend to feel harder to access, but it does take some time to get used to the feel. Sometimes, your thumb cannot find a comfortable place to be up there.
  7. Imorgg, and Luke, How does the neck feel on your new UJ's? Does the guitar neck have big shoulders? Is the neck thin, "D" shaped? Any info would be helpful. Thanks, Stephen
  8. Congradulations Imorgg and Luke! I'm so happy that you guys finally got your guitars and they are all you expected. The pictures are wonderful to look at! Thank you for posting them Imorgg! :) Enjoy them, both of you. :)
  9. Luke, I hope you have a great day fishing. No worry about hurrying up the weight factor. If you are able to do it over the weekend sometime, I would appreciate it, and Thank You!. I called MF just a few minutes ago to see if the UJ might be on sale with a special price on Black Friday, as I may have the money by then or really close to it. If the sale goes on for Black Friday, I might be able to get one then. They told me they have 11 left in stock but maybe getting another order. They don't know for sure about the next order, however. If I get one then, that would be great, but if
  10. I hope all these UJ's are perfect when they come in for you guys. I'm excited for you all. I forget who posted about how ugly they thought the UJ was, but it was from another section on this forum, not posted here. I saw Pin's post. I don't know that it was he who posted in the other section, but I'm laughing. The post was something about how those UJ guys are so excited over an ugly guitar. Hey, anyone and everyone can buy a traditionally painted guitar in the usual color schemes, as I'm sure we all have. That to me is no big deal anymore. Now, after 58+ years of playing, I'm gettin
  11. I don't know what your price point is, but have you seen the Jackson Ampworks website? My gear is getting too big for my live work as well...Diezel and Marshall. I will be going to a Jackson Ampworks Britain amp of either the 4.0 or 30 variety and a Matrix NL12 1x12 cab, which weighs in at 16 pounds. Robbie Macintosh is using Jackson Ampworks Britain 4.0 amps. As for strings, I have to use .007 to.034 gauge strings and since no one makes a set that light, I have to buy my stings one at a time and make sets myself. Sorry I can't be of help in this.
  12. Luke, Thanks for the heads up! If I had all the money right now, I would be on the phone to MF right now. I believe I will have all the money in by month's end. Maybe MF will have a Black Friday deal. Congradulations to both of you guys for scoring such a sweet deal from MF. That's just fantastic news! :)
  13. Good luck to you, Luke. I hope it's all you want it to be. :)
  14. Another Jersey Boy here...Monmouth county. I should have the total paid off by the end of November. If Sweetwater does not have them in by then, I will probably go to MF. They can tell me all day long about their 55 point inpsection and that's nice that they do it, but until I inspect my own guitar, the fat lady hasn't left the building.
  15. Congradulations gentlemen! :) Please let us know how the guitars are when they arrive, and best of luck in getting some really nice ones.
