    Hi guys!

    Just got a brand new EJ200CE for my birthday and I have a question. The eSonic2 preamp seems to be badly fitted on the guitar. I actually went through all the other 4 guitars they had in stock and they all showed the same issue. A piece of foam is visible from the top angle, and the corners on the silver edges seem to be scuffed. I’ll post some pictures. Is this normal on yours?

    Are you talking about the gasket between the plastic and the wood?

    Take off the reading glasses and forget about it.

    By the way, have you bothered to play the guitar. I find mine a true joy both acoustically and plugged in. As a jazz player I particularly like the ability to blend pickups or run them stereo. Try it out, you might like it.

    On another thread (possibly on another forum) I described the difference between the Gibson & Epiphone versions of this guitar as:
    The Epiphone EJ-200 is a fine $1500 guitar that you can buy for $500, while the Gibson SJ-200 is a fine $2500 guitar that you can buy for $5000.

    For what you get at that price, a little foam showing ain't no thang. Deal with it.

    Or, if you just can't handle it, send it to me.........:naughty:

    It's a guitar, meant to be played. As long as it functions correctly and sounds good what's a bit of foam and a minor scuff?

    I haven’t seen one in person, but if it’s foam then the gasket probably squishes outward when they tightened everything down. Same deal with classic car taillights that use a gasket, you either have to trim the gasket and hope it squishes the same way when you put it back on, or deal with it!

    By the way, welcome and enjoy the new guit-fiddle!
