Just bought another EP7

I sold my EP7 to buy a Variax that I needed. And, when I saw they were discontinuing the EP7, I was pretty sad. I even became more sad when I saw the EP9. I don't mind the "made in China" but do mind the way it looks. It is just ugly to me. For some reason, the inlays almost look yellow, blah!
If you have never seen an EP7 in person you're really missing out. It is beautiful. I played mine at praise worship services for a few months and got compliments on it every week. And, the most important thing to me was the neck. I had been through a lot of acoustic guitars looking for a comfortable neck which had a thin profile, well more thin than usual acoustics. The neck is not "wizard" thin, but good enough that my left hand doesn't cramp up after an hour of playing. M u s i c 1 2 3 has had them on closeout for a long time now and it has been bugging me. So, I just pulled the trigger and bought another one. I guess I'll have to put in another order for the EP50C case.
Here is a pic of my EP7 that I sold.

Re: Just bought another EP7

Those are beautiful guitars, wish I had the money to buy an acoustic. Haven't had one for a few years and the one I did have wasn't really good, just an hierloom (sp?). I've never gotten the chance to hear an ep7 though, must be sweet.

Re: Just bought another EP7

I have one, it is a great accoustic, I love the feel of it and sound when plugged in, however, with out it plugged in, it has more of a shallow tone compared to other accoustics with bigger bodys.

I kind of dig the new EP9, I really like wood grain guitars, and the vein is a perliod gold.

Heres my girls:

Re: Just bought another EP7

I love my EP7, it sounds and plays great, but sounds even better plugged in(which is what it was made for).

I'd love to get an EP9 too, but I have a baby girl on the way so I can't afford to buy anymore guitars right now.
