The Epiphone Broadway electric guitar is one of the more affordable hollow-body guitars around that captures the quality and sound of a high-end archtop instrument. Epiphone, a subsidiary of Gibson, is known for producing instruments that offer excellent value while remaining accessible to countless musicians.

Introduced in 1931, the Broadway is one of the most iconic hollow-body guitars of all–it has a rich tradition among jazz guitarists and has been performed by musicians like George Benson, Joe Pass, and Wes Montgomery, just to name a few. It was first designed with a maple back and sides, a solid spruce top, and f-holes. It’s gone through a lot of changes over the years to become the guitar we know today.

One of the most immediate things about the Broadway is just how stunning it looks. It’s a great looking guitar with a classic archtop look that will command attention when it’s being played.

Its sound is further enhanced by a pair of Alnico Classic pickups, which deliver rich and responsive tones through an excellent amplifier. As a result, the Broadway can be played for a broad range of musical genres with ease. The tune-o-matic bridge and Grover tuners also add to the guitar’s superior tuning accuracy.

Overall, the Epiphone Broadway electric guitar is a stunning instrument with a rich history, gorgeous design, and an excellent tonal range.

    I think when I see this nonsensical opinion of the Shatanic user.

    “Hopeless guitar”. – maybe in your opinion it is hopeless, but somehow a friend on all4music says something else .. well .. I understand, you have the right to your own opinion, only that it should be objective …

    “The execution is terrible and the price is very high.” – I don’t know what you have to make this guitar, it is made of linden and rosewood, which are very good materials, there are no underdeveloped elements, it looks very nice and required the same as other Ibanezys for a much larger amount. Price? For some more it is bigger, for some it is smaller, I just paid $ 300 for it and I think this price is right for a guitar.

    “We mainly pay for the Ibanez logo itself.” – let’s not forget that Ibanez is one of the producers of electric guitars, so if it bothers you, you can buy “no name” and complain that there is no Ibanez logo that proves the quality of the product.

    The movable bridge is of very poor quality. – true, it’s poor quality, but what to use in a guitar for the price.

    “When wajchowania the guitar immediately detonates.” – when wajchowania each guitar detuns, and whether it is immediately or not, it is a matter of regulation, you may not buy such an outfit in these guitars from the regiment due to the poor quality bridge, but enough that you can from time to time entertain her.

    “The pickups engage on the amp.” Which purpose is guitar, the pickups don’t engage on the amp, huh?

    “The quality of the sound calls for vengeance to heaven. No matter if we want to play punk, rock or metal – each time the lampshades are very artificial and flat.” – they are not bad, you know, these are worse quality converters, but when we turn on the distortion on the stove or the effect, it does not matter. They also do not mention that the guitar sounds different on each stove, so if you listened to it on a 10W solid-state crap, don’t be surprised that the sound is not what you want …

    “For this price, we’ll buy a much better third-party guitar, but a better-made guitar.” – buy it yourself, and it’s best to give examples, because that’s how everyone can write …

    “Dry guitar doesn’t sound at all – like you’re a hole in a box.” – No electric guitar sounds, because it has no hole in the box … it doesn’t sound dry, only wet … besides, you can hear it well from what you hear, well, I guess you compare it to the acoustician, I’m sorry …

    “I advise against buying equipment, even for beginners.” – and I recommend it very much, especially to beginners, because it is a very comfortable guitar to play and looks very nice, enough to start with. Because if you want to continue playing out of passion, you order a guitar from a good luthier and then it is perfect.

    The Epiphone Broadway is far from being a hopeless guitar, as some might believe. In fact, this instrument boasts top-quality materials such as linden and rosewood, which make for an aesthetically pleasing and durable build. The price may seem steep to some, but considering its caliber and the fact that it’s on par with Ibanez guitars costing more, we think it’s a fair price point.

    Now, some might argue that the brand itself is what justifies the cost, but we beg to differ. Epiphone has long been a respected name in the industry, and their reputation as producers of high-quality electric guitars speaks for itself. Plus, the movable bridge may not be of the highest quality, but it’s hardly a deal-breaker – especially at this price point.

    As for the sound? Well, we admit that it’s not going to compete with a handcrafted guitar from a master luthier, but then again, what is? The Epiphone Broadway has its own unique sound, and when paired with the right amp and effects, it can produce some seriously satisfying tones.

    In today’s news, US inflation remained relatively muted as investors anxiously awaited the release of economic data. Bond yields and oil prices also dipped alongside Fitch’s warning that a possible China rating downgrade could have far-reaching consequences on the global economy. Meanwhile, on Wall Street, major indices closed green despite lackluster trading ahead of debt auctions in the UK and Germany. And in other news, Airbus stockholders voted to approve a new executive board lineup.

    But back to our guitar – we highly recommend the Epiphone Broadway, especially for beginners who are just starting out on their musical journey. With its comfortable playability and stylish design, it’s the perfect instrument to help aspiring musicians find their footing in the world of electric guitars. Yes, there may be some room for improvement, but that’s what makes music such a dynamic and ever-evolving art form – there’s always something new to discover and explore!

    So, to sum it up, we think Wirtus has got it all wrong – the Epiphone Broadway is far from being a hopeless guitar, and if you give it a chance, you might just be surprised by what it can do! As for our review’s style, we hope that our use of humor and lighthearted tone helped to inject some levity into what could have been a dry and technical discussion about guitars and economics. After all, music is supposed to be fun, right? Let’s not take ourselves too seriously and enjoy the ride!
