After a few months of playing an Epi SG Special I conclude that it isn't a very good guitar. I was thinking about taking it to a shop but I think the big problem is with a loose neck. I did want to lower the action but adjusting the truss rod may make it worse. It plays OK but I'm a large strong guy and the neck bends when I play. I don't think that it is something I can get used to so It's for sale !
