Ordered an Aj-45me, but they sent me an Aj-54 me

Recommended Posts

I think I'll keep it any way

It's a 2016, so they did get the pick guard sorted out. Everything is fantastic. Maybe I don't understand D Shaped necks, but it feels more like a rounded C. It's very comfortable. As I was researching these, I came across the Epic Thread below and that helped my decision. But I thought is fine guitar deserved it's own NGD thread. I highly recommend it.

Thanks.

 

The sound is astonishing. Big. Boomy. It rings and sustains forever.

 

Super easy to play too. The action is quite perfect for me. Fairly low,

yet high enough I can bend notes easily. The string spacing is real

nice too. I haven't plugged it in yet. I really bought it to play unplugged.

 

I wasn't sure how I would like the 12's that came on it. I usually go with

10's. I think the shorter scale helps that out. I'll leave the 10's for my

Texan.

 

I chose the regular Epi dread naught case too. It fits perfectly. Epi has

a real winner here.

...Everything is fantastic...

 

Smartly done! Such a classically gorgeous guitar. That flub on the label probably makes it worth more, too... especially on Antiques Roadshow 2116. msp_smile.gif

Totally agree with your description of the guitar, I've had one since last spring--which means that I also have some serious pick guard placement envy. And if you like its sound now, of course just wait till you play it more; it just keeps getting better.

 

Also agree that the case is perfect for it: solidly made and worth getting instead of some other option.

 

Congrats.

Very nice. Everyone I've played in stores has been great.

The pickguard does look better too on these..I didn't realise they had changed it.

I'm a bit confused, folks...but maybe not?

Is it possible there is NO AJ-54me? I searched, but found no info on that model...but, then, Epiphone does discontinue models rather regularly (when I joined this forum Elitist electrics and my AJ500RC models were available...now most, if not all, are discontinued).

Was the AJ54me a previously available model, or did somehow the label misprint with "45" digits transposed?

Just curious...

Thanks!

Probably a typo during label printing. If this were a postage stamp it would be considered a "misprint" and, if it escaped detection, would be very valuable.Still,it's kinda cool! I wonder if this is a one-off.

I'm sure it's a typo. I just got a kick out of it.

 

Well, after a week of owning it, I am completely smitten. It sounds so beautiful and full. It's easy to play too. The neck is perfect. The string spacing is just right. Barre chords, open chords, lead riffs, strumming, it's all fantastic.

 

It does it all.
