    I did a search and couldnt find what I was looking for.

    I've been hooked on the thunderbird sound as of late but cant afford a Gibson Thunderbird. I was wondering if the Epiphone Thunderbirds do a good job capturing the thunderbird sound,knowing it wont sound as good as a Gibson. Also I cant find anything on how well they are built overal and quality control.Are they has bad as fender/squire?
     
  2. epiphone are generally higher quality than squier, in that compairison, i have an Epi SG guitar that knocks lumps out of and squier guitar ive heard,

    thats all i can help with from my experiences, but think about it, must be hard to get worse than squier ;)

    they do a pretty good job of getting the sound, check out the 2 sites and compare specs.
