The guy in the Dawsons Manchester store was extremely helpful in helping me 'pick' this guitar which I believe was the best choice for me.
Since performing at clubs and open mic's I have had quite a lot of people ask questions of its make, price, build etc believing it to be a much more expensive guitar than it is. I must confess after 18 months ownership I still love the sound it produces and even though I have tried out several other makes costing at least 10 times what I paid for mine, I still have no desire to change it for anything else. I love my Epiphone AJ-220 SCE.
