    Only recently an Epiphone owner. I acquired a Epi Cherry Dot that was born in the Samick plant in May of 2014. Its in very good shape. I'm new to the brand so I'll be pestering you with questions.

    Welcome Mike. Nice guitar. :thumb:

    I'm obviously prejudiced but IME Epi's hollow and semi-hollow body models are about as good as you can get as far as value goes. Excellent quality and playability.

    Where in "the high desert" is home for you?

    Thanks, Soulman. About as far south as you can get in New Mexico. I'm six miles from the border and my runway is at 4075 feet MSL.

    Yup, can't get much farther south than that can ya'?

    I'm up north in Denver which is kinda like the end of the high desert here.

    I lived in Colorado near Littleton back in the '60's. It was great.

    I'm in Englewood just north of Littleton now but also lived to the west of Littleton out in the Foothills for a long time. I liked it much more back in the '80s when I moved here. In the '60s it would have been even better.

    Now it's just one more big city with all of what that entails.
