    Hey all, new/old timer here, new to the forum & old time at fiddling with these guitars.
    I’ve had a handful of Epi’s, never quite found one that felt just right, they were all mighty fine guitars, just didn’t have “it”, (you know it when you 1st pick it up & then your hooked when you play it) passed on a couple of gibsons that didn’t have “it” either.
    I’m believing my searching is over though, been eyeing & playing the ES 339 Pro, I had a Casino Coupe, loved the size, neck & how it played just never bonded with the P 90’s.
    Since I’m favoring the Pelham blue flavor it’s on order, should ship out mid April, definitely looking forward to it.
    Apologize for the long windiness.

    Welcome from KY ! I'm an old fart new to the forum as well.

    I've finally figured out why I never bonded with the Epi's I've bought and sold. Couple years ago I realized I dig fat neck profiles and Epi has some models that fit the bill. My Epi Olympic made me a fan and my recent Epi LP Special has me hooked.

    Hope the one you ordered is the one for ya ! Can't go wrong with Pelham Blue.

    Welcome to Epi-Talk. So you have about 2-3 weeks of agony until it arrives? I'm not sure a guitar forum will help. :)

    Hello Memphis. My favorite music town. Enjoy the ES339. They're great guitars.

    Relatable. Welcome aboard.
    It won't, that's for sure. As a guy who's January pre-order Jaguar (originally scheduled for next month) won't be getting here until May / June can tell you.

    I know what you mean already, had a couple of guitar parts ordered, usually 3-5 days out of MO, nope, a week of transit then 3 weeks trying to get out of the warehouse, I’m pretty set on when it hits the front porch, I’ll sacrifice a chicken, on the smoker, to the shipping gods, who knows

    It's never good when your Sweetwater rep leaves you a message asking you to call him back. :facepalm:

    As far as parts go, I've had very little problem getting parts for mine. Of course that's just more fuel for the fire.
    I've got a thread going over here: https://www.epiphonetalk.com/threads/fender-and-squier-2021-pre-orders.5255/ if you're so inclined.

    Welcome from Illinois! We wento Memphis a few years back. It's a fun place to be. We also enjoyed Nashville on the same trip! I think Tennessee in general is great! We were considering to move somewhere in the Nashville suburbs.
