    Other than it being strung the wrong way, is it any good?

    It's ace, Epiphone PR-5E electro acoustic.

    The neck feels more like an electric and it's really cool to play. Not the fullest sound in the world but you need a decent sized jumbo with a deep body for that. I would sacrifice the bit of sound for the playability.

    Put it this way I am giving serious consideration to getting one, however given that his loans are months or years there seems little point.

    Buy one and loan it to me, then you keep a hold of the one you've borrowed, obviousment.

    I'd love a shiny new electric, like.
    I've only got a wank cheapo tanglewood thing I got when I was just beginning and an old right handed strat (converted to lefty) with knackered wiring.

    If you want to get a reasonably inexpensive one that is a good guitar try the Pacifica. The one that looks Stratish.

    I'm not arsed about looks as much as playability and sound, like.
    Not that it matters when I've got 18p in the bank

    The Pacifica is the best "budget" electric

    This pump dispenses gasoline, a fossil fuel. People who believe fossils are not real should put something else in their tanks.

    It's a quality product burdmate. I've been playing it tonight and loving it.

    Ideally the cut away bit would be a wee bit less sharp and more rounded. However I am addicted to the Les Paul shape which it is clearly an homage to.

    And also it's an Epiphone, which is the "budget" arm of Gibson. It actually says Gibson on the truss rod cover. Which, in common with other Epiphones is the same shape as the Gibson, but with the three screws, as one would expect on the Epiphone version. Rather than the two you would see on the Gibson equivalent.
