Epi User in Brazil

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

here I am, Epiphone ES-339 PRO Natural owner since Oct' 2018. Ten years ago, I emigrated from Europe to South America with only one of my guitars in the luggage. Unfortunatly I chose the one I never really liked, so I gave it away to my sister in law. No matter if I didn't play it for some time before, the next day I already regreted to be without any guitar for the first time since 1989.

 

Well, but music gear is expensive here in Brazil, so I spend months on Youtube and on Websites to find the one affordable guitar which I would like to play most. In October then I went to Music Store in Cologne, played on several guitars and went out of the store with the mentioned ES-339. Back in Brazil in January I added a Marshall Code 25 to my rig. That's it ... finally playing again.

Thank you all.

 

For my budget I think I made a good choice. For those of you who don't know it: The Epiphone ES-339 PRO looks like a hot washed ES-335. It does not fit into the Les Paul Case, but has more or less it's body size. I chose it because after playing a really heavy Les Paul Copy in the past, and I didn't get younger, I wished to have something not so heavy. It further let me split coils, so it's pretty versatile. And since I anyway ever wanted to have a Alvin Lee, BB King style instrument ... voila!

 

About the amp, out there on the internet, some people mentioned that a model amp should not at least deserve the Marshall label, but honestly for my use case it works pretty fine. Our condo has paper thin walls and because I don't want to stress my neighbours, I almost always only practice with headphones. I had not been playing for some years before, so gigging with it, is not what I expect to do very soon. I connected it to my computer via USB what gives me 2 very nice features. Firstable I can play along with Youtube videos via the same headphones and second I can instantly check out presets from websites to try them out. Very comfortable!! If I would want to, I could adjust preset parameters directly on a smartphone, but with countless existing presets on stock and internet I prefer to spend my time on practising instead of finding my signature tone right now.

 

Everybody have a nice weekend
