Epiphone James Bay 

1966 Century Outfit, Cherry, 2018

I saw this guitar in a huge shop in Hamburg and could not resist. I learned about songer/songwriter James Bay through the guitar purchase and not the other way round as usual. The guitar has no center block and an original American made Kinman noiseless P90. It comes with a nice case and some case candy. Therefore I think it is worth the extra dough compared to the similar Epiphone 1966 Century (my birth year). The build quality, lacquer and comfortable neck are all flawless. It has a surprisingly loud acoustic tone that translates well through the single pickup. A guitar well worth the reasonable amount of money that it costs. She is my choice as a holiday and kitchen guitar now.
