I knew when I first saw this guitar advertised that I was going to have to get one. I like to collect the odd guitars (new and old) that come along and the features of this guitar excited me. I got in one of the first orders for this guitar and though it missed the release date, I did get one about 3 weeks later. It was worth the wait. Setup out of the box was very good, just had to tune it up and plug it in and it was good to go. The action is great, the humbuckers are fine and the whole guitar is certainly a good value for the money. The Arctic White finish was very good and I love the set neck and the thin body. I'll play out with it soon. It's a darned good buy - get one while you can.

Well as another noted my Jack imput was also loose. Played for a few days and love the sound and action on the neck. The problem I have found is its a fixed neck and the slightest weight of my cord hand on the neck makes the strings sound sharp or flat. Almost like theres something between the neck and body and it rocks back and forth on it. I am returning the item only for replacement in hopes it does not have the same issues. If this neck was not the way it is I would rate this guitar 5+ . I will write another review after replacement. I do love the sound, action and the looks. DA

Awesome Epi Classic

By JLS3

from Carbondale, IL

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great. I have been playing for a short while and found it very easy to pick up and just play. More experienced players have fallen in love with it as well and are ordering it. The one feature I really like is the low level of the strings in the higher frets. It really makes the guitar easy to play. GREAT BUY!!

I have paid more for less.

By B

from seattle wa

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

The wilshire has sparked some faith in me about epiphone. I never thought much of them to be honest. But, now I get it. I had been reading far too many reviews that bashed them and comparing them to gibsons. Don't get me wrong I appreciate the high end guitars but this thing plays as good as most if not better than most guitars I have played. The pickups are good, the build is excellent. The neck is comfy and everything is put together solid. This is a quality instrument. And I'm happy to have it in my "collection". It is quickly getting to be the one I grab first.

Good Guitar

By JB

from Lakewood, CA

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

I'm a pretty new player, but i can say that the wilshire stays in tune very well, even after some heavy bending and slamming a few chords. The pickups seem pretty good and the guitar overall has a versatile sound. I don't know what strings it came with, but i put some ernie ball 9's on and had to adjust the truss rod, no biggie. That's the closest thing to a negative i have to say about this guitar.

Not Bad For The Money

By Robert J Smith

from Las Vegas

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

This guitar has received a lot of bad reveiws I myself was skeptical being a player for 15 years. However my experience right out of the box was a decently crafted instrument for the money yeah its not a gibson or a paulreed but for the money your getting a decent deal. It has a unique sound and look I own by far more expensive guitars but this one has been hard to put down I would recomend it for the beginner or anyone looking for something different however not so impressed with the strings and setup. But to each their own thats why their adjustable nd can be made to fit the player overall great job epiphone another purchase another pleased customer.

Craftsmanship and Quality needs to improve drastically

By MD

from Irving, Texas

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

I was excited to see this shape and style of guitar return from Epiphone but the real product was a complete let down. I bought this online without ever seeing it in person and was completely disappointed when it arrived. Right out of the box I found 3 paint flaws, a big scratch on the pick guard, and the truss rod cover stuck up a half inch off of the headstock. I was astounded that these type of flaws could make it past final inspection. I have been a true fan of Epiphone equipment since I bought an Epiphone acoustic guitar in 1968 and most recently an Epiphone Dot Deluxe that is fantastic. I must say that Epiphone struck out on this guitar since the material on this Wilshire is not even the quality of a childs toy and has missed a real opportunity to revive a great guitar model that could easily complete with the Fender Strat market. But Epiphone needs to think hard about the craftsmanship on this one. I will state that my dealings with Guitar Center on returning the guitar was a professional experience and handled quickly and without any problems. I will definitely purchase online again from Guitar Center without any worries. Final word - Stay far away from this low end Epiphone Wilshire until they correct the cheap parts quality and the line inspections on it. As it is now, this is just a kids toy.

Fantastic Guitar

By Tim

from NY

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

Well when I first saw this guitar it looked exotic and quite amazing it was one of the few guitars that actually caught my eye. I had to get that guitar, I though I ordered it online(best and maybe the only option). Waited like a (week, worth the wait) when I got it I plugged it in and tested it in anyway I could. The first thought that came to my mind was "wow!" sound was good and the pick-ups seem fantastic. It was worth the money too and the fact that it was a limited edition from epiphone makes it even more better. This guitar is FANTASTIC!!!

wilshire reissue

By Dave Dorflinger

from warrenton missouri

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Electric Guitar:

I really like this guitar. It's not a high dollar axe but it looks cool and it played really well right of the box. The pickups are better than expected and it had a wide range of sound. The tuners and hardware are also decent. There were a few minor issues with the finish. I bought 2 and kept the best one. I lowered the action and put a set of 9 earnie balls on it. The neck is straight with no fret buzz anywhere. I have nothing negative to say about it. I own a 74' Epi wilshire (my first guitar) and the hardware on this guitar is of much better quality. It's good enough to use professionally but it would really be a great guitar for a beginner because it's fun to play and it's priced right. In fact, it's a steal.
