I've owned the ef-500rans for about two years now which is enough time to give a very educated review.I'll start with the fact that the sound which was great to begin with has matured into something special.It's tone makes it hard for me to put down.Lots of nice overtones and the bass has gotten tighter and more defined.The guitar has held up great to the rigors of being used everynight.I'm a singer/songwriter in Nashville and this axe gets plenty of use and has risen to the occasion every time.It's the first guitar I reach for and the last one I put down at the end of the day.I read some reviews that said the sound was a little mid range heavy.To them I say,"just give it time to open up".Even the super high end guitars have to loosen up before they reach their full potential.
The guitar gods were shining down on the day that I got my EF500RA. What a beautiful guitar. Everything about this thing is 5 star+. I put in a L.R. Baggs Element and plugged this baby in and man o' man!!! The gentleman from Nashville was right on the money. The more I break this in the better it sounds. I've played 'em all and this can't be beat. Sure there are the hi dollar Martins, Gibsons (own a few of those too) but this is in a class all by itself. I have found that I don't play my D28 as much and it stays in its case. Thank you Epiphone. My trust has been restored!!
Got this guitar about 2 months ago and it sounds and plays great!
