I've looked at that in the past but was put off by this bit:
The Express captures the look, sound, and feel of a full size Les Paul but in a smaller package that’s perfect for younger players and for travel.

These remind me of the early 80s Yamaha SG series guitars.

Seems pretty good.

Anyone put one to their ear to see hear resonant it is yet?

Not a first, maybe a 7th.

Is that simply based on price? I got a guitar for £239 and it's beautifully resonant

I want to like it but I can't get over it looking like a mutilated LP

Was it really £438 as the site claims? Seems to be around £250 everywehre. Still a good deal.

Crazymonkey - this would make an excellent first guitar.

What I'm saying, this a great company that usually always make a good standard guitar, with a bit of giggery pokery it can be an amazing guitar.

An AMAZING starter guitar, better than anything I started with!

Starter don't give a rats about resonant, they just want to crank it up to 10 and play smoke in the water....Who bloody doesn't?

Heat!

This was posted a while ago at the same price. Quite a big thread iirc, which prospective buyers might want to check.

Anyway, we took the plunge and have to say that for the money it is excellent. Bear in mind a case would be £40 plus.

It's a 'jazz' sounding guitar as you might expect, not a thrash metal sound. It is pretty heavy but well made. Sounds good through our old Peavy amp.

I doubt you could do better for around £200. As always, the rrp can be a bit of a fantasy price. Check what they are elsewhere.

Is it a learners/young player's guitar? Well, it's a lovely guitar but quite heavy. My 12 year old wanted an electric guitar so we bought her the Peavey AT200 from Gear4Music - think there is a thread on this on HD too. This autotunes itself - bit of a gimmick - but is based on the Predator guitar which is supposed to be good. These are out of stock now but for £120 it was a good starter guitar, a lot lighter for her to hold, thinner neck, easier to play.

We ordered the AT200, but were initially sent the £65 Peavey Raptor by mistake. To me this feels a cheaper quality guitar than the AT200, but it has a thin neck, low action, and is very playable - it would be a great first guitar for a young player and is cracking value at £65.

If you look on You Tube there are lots of reviews where you can get an idea of the sound.

All 3 guitars - Epiphone from Andertons £219, the Peavey AT200 £120, and Peavey Raptor £65, both from Gear4Music, are all excellent value for money. The AT200 is out of stock now and to be honest I bought it because it was heavily discounted and based on the well regarded Predator model - the auto tune feature isn't worth paying an excess for.

For build quality and sound I would pick the Epiphone. For an adult learner or older child, I would pick the Epiphone. For a younger child I would pick the £65 Peavey - it's this price at a few places, so I am guessing it is being discontinued.

Good service and delivery from both companies btw and it was quickly sorted when Gear4Music sent the wrong guitar.

Cheers for clearing that up and sorry for any misunderstanding.

I have to say that reading the specs on this guitar, and the reviews, the guitar I bought for £239 seems a much better buy. It was a Yamaha 510v.

i bought blue one months ago, same deal as offered above. hardcase is excellent. guitar very good for price. good delivery time and no probs. would recommend.

The Yamaha Pacifica is often recommended as a starter guitar and the 510v seems to be £250 at Gak atm. I would look at You Tube reviews and online reviews before deciding on any guitar. Ideally you would try the actual guitar out as even a good guitar can sound awful if it isn't set up properly, but the best deals are on the web at the moment. I don't think anyone will be disappointed at the Epiphone for £219, though of course it will be a different type sound to the strat-type Yamaha.

It's a fine looking guitar and these are well built for the money. Maybe a bit weighty for some and probably not for the metalheads out there.
If someone bought me this as a first guitar I would be over the moon.

I am sorely tempted by this but already have WAY too many guitars. For that money with a hard case and coil taps its a steal. Sounds good.

The Yamaha isn't really comparable to the epiphone as it only has a single, bridge pickup, rather than the two on the genesis. It also doesn't have any tone controls, which is OK if you rely on your amp for tone adjustment, but not something most beginner/intermediate players will do.
