Ever-enduring Epiphone acoustic guitars

Have you ever heard about Epiphone acoustic guitars?

Music has been a constant part of people’s lives. It has continuously evolved and took an ever-fleeting form ever since, and Epiphone, a musical instruments brand, has continued to follow and flow with this trend for many years now. What is Epiphone?

Epiphone acoustic guitar

Epiphone is an American instrument maker that has been in the industry since 1873. It remains to be one of the enduring names in guitar brands, and a few notable musicians drawn to its soothing warm sound are Roy Orbison and Alex Lifeson.

It started with the mandolin craze in the early 1900s to jazz, pop, rnb, rock n roll, punk, grunge, and so many other musical genres that have risen from the creative minds of musicians all over the world. Genres and music styles have changed, but Epiphone remained to be a trusted name in the market. This is probably why Gibson, its owner now, let it keep its name even after its acquisition. Epiphone has developed a good musical instrument each for a genre and era, including top-class acoustic and electric guitars.

Epiphone’s first line of acoustic guitars was not introduced until 1928, with a series that was called “Recording series”. Like most of the instruments that Epiphone used to make, this acoustic guitar line is identified by labels from A-E, and was characterized by a distinct body type. In the end, the recoding series did not become a very successful series as the pioneer of Epiphone acoustic guitars, the lack of popularity is attributed to its small size and volume compared to its competitor at that time, Gibson, which later became the main owner of this enduring musical instruments brand.

After its acquisition from Gibson, Epiphone’s guitars have been patterned to be at par with Gibson’s high class guitar designs that generally had more volume and was bigger in size. In 2000, Epiphony introduced an elitist acoustic range to the market with the talent of Sir Gibson luthier Mike Voltz. Epiphone acoustic guitars were redeveloped. It featured wood of top quality, bone nuts, and hand-rubbed finish. The innovation was so good that sales soared high. Until now, only Elitist Casino and the Dwight Trash Casino is sold in the market from the Elitist series, as all the other models were discontinued in 2008. Despite this, a lot of other models are still produced by Epiphone.

  • Epiphone acoustic guitars could be generally described as visually appealing, with a design that provides great comfort for guitarists.
  • The guitars’ distinct rich warm sound is also its greatest selling point.
  • Also, epiphone acoustic guitars are generally affordable and great for starters.
  • The affordability is most probably ade possible by using wood laminates instead of solid high-quality wood. Despite the wood laminates, the sound produced is still very high-quality, without being too harsh on beginners’ budget. It’s easy to play and mostly light.

It won’t last in the market for this long if it doesn’t have superior quality and distinct features. Have you ever heard how an acoustic guitar from Epiphone sounds like?

Distinguishing different kinds of Acoustic Guitars

Acoustic guitars are really popular in the music industry. The general term “acoustic guitar” refers to a bigger umbrella that envelopes various and more specific types based on body structure and purpose. A knowledgeable person on guitars would be wise to choose the best fit for a guitar buyer’s purpose and body built. The main things to consider in buying a guitar is musical genre and comfort in handling. What are the different types of acoustic guitars and how are they different from each other?

Guitar body parts

To better distinguish guitars, it is best to know its body parts. Each modification on a guitar part has a purpose to generate a specific and unique sound or to fit a body type well. Here are the different parts of a standard acoustic guitar:

  • Headstock
  • Post
  • Machine head/Tuner
  • Nut
  • Fret
  • Neck
  • Heel
  • Side
  • Binding
  • Fretboard
  • Upper bout
  • Body
  • Top
  • Pickguard
  • Lower bout
  • Saddle
  • Bridge
  • Bridge pin
  • Tail
  • Sound hole

Guitar Size

Smaller guitars are usually generate more mellow sounds and bigger sized guitars are used for louder music, especially if accompanied by other instruments like guitars, piano, and more. Most guitars are classified by size, as the size mostly determines not only comfort for the user, but also the range of sounds that a guitar could produce.

Parlor/Baby Guitars

This is the smallest kind of acoustic guitars and started to be famous in the 1950s. It has an overall smaller body than other acoustic guitar kinds. The upper bout is also noticeably smaller than the lower bout. This type of guitar is best for mellow and folk songs.

O (Concert) and OO (Grand Concert) Acoustic Guitars

These guitars were considered large when they were first introduced, but now serve as a great transition, most especially in size, from parlor size (small guitars) to bigger-sized guitars. The lower bouts range from 13 ½-14 ½ in. Since this is in medium size, it offers the flexibility in sound of smaller guitars, and controlled resonance. Most acoustic-electrical guitars could be found in this size. This guitar is best utilized for users who mostly perform solo, without accompaniment.

Dreadnought

Dreadnought-guitar

The largest among the most popular acoustic guitar kinds, these guitars offer louder sound that comes with a bigger body. The sounds are less flexible compare to parlor sized guitars. However, they create deep and strong sounds that could be used with accompaniment.

Student sizes

There are more kinds of guitars, like the jumbo (largest), auditorium (a little larger than OO guitars, with a 15 in lower bout), and classical (second to the smallest of guitars). However, these terms are too technical and not very friendly for beginners. Some manufacturers and guitar stores divide their guitars in 4 sizes; 1/4 being composed of the smaller guitars, and 4/4 being composed of the biggest guitars. This is easier to distinguish for beginners.

Guitar Price

Guitars could also be classified by price, from low to high-end brands. As a general rule, it is best to try lower range of guitars for starters, and try more expensive guitars as a newbie starts to learn and feel how the different shapes and sizes of guitars affect sound and style in music.

Acoustic guitar on stage

There are so many different types of acoustic guitars available today: 6-String, 12-string, nylon string hollow-body, semi-hollow-body, some with pickups some without, and each one will have its own characteristics.

Watch this guy playing semi-hollow body nylon telecaster thin line Acoustic Electric Guitar

Whenever a band’s stage volume is robust I prefer to use the electronic pickup inside the guitar first.

Using the guitar’s internal pickup rather than a microphone helps with separation by minimizing the amount of bleed from stage sounds like percussion, guitar amplifiers, and other instruments. These sounds will also reach the pickup but at a much lower level. Sometimes even a vocal sound will reach the pickup.

Stage Monitoring

Secondly, the internal pickup will help with stage monitoring. You will be able to get more headroom (level) before feedback when having the sound routed back to the wedge monitor. There is a limit though-when you start to hear a howl this is the sound of the body of the guitar resonating due to the sound waves from the wedge monitor being reproduced, vibrating the guitar body and moving around inside the guitar then being reproduced again by the pickup. If you have some tone control on your acoustic guitar pickup like low, mid, and highs, make an adjustment to help smooth out the hot spots.

Microphones On Acoustic Guitars

When using a microphone to capture an acoustic guitar for live sound I found that the microphone of choice really depends on the sound of the guitar and the sound the player wants to hear.

Microphones-On-Acoustic-Guitars-1

  • A large diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone works well in most cases, particularly in the studio where you have the option of placing the microphone at a distance to capture the most natural sound of the guitar. However for live music, depending on the band lineup, this opens the door for other sounds to bleed into the guitar microphone and somewhat limits the amount of stage monitoring you can achieve.
  • A Hyper-cardioid microphone will work well, allowing minimal bleed as long as you choose just the right angle. The right microphone angle is relative to the sound you want to get. Moving the microphone closer to the sound hole then closer to the bridge will yield some very different results. Experiment with the microphone angle until you find the right sound.

Then there are times when a good old dynamic microphone like a standard SM-57 seems to work the best. Keep in mind that you will not be able to stop all the bleed but minimizing it really helps.

Best Of Both Worlds?

At times you may want to use both the pickup and a microphone. The pickup can give you the up-close sound of the strings and more headroom in the monitors, while the microphone helps to capture the instrument as a whole and includes the sound of the body of the guitar. When using this technique you may hear some phasing due to the different distances of the pickup and microphone in relation to the strings.

By moving the microphone around and varying the levels between the two signals, you can achieve a good, workable combination.

This article was written with the assumption that the acoustic guitar is set up and tuned properly. Remember, no matter how good the microphone is or where you place it or how you utilize the pickup it will not correct intonation.

Keep Your Cables In Shape

The signal from your pick up is the signal you want to reach the DI box that goes to the mixer and the same signal you want to have at the input of your amplifier if you’re using one.

One worn cable in the setup can destroy a perfectly good guitar signal.

Walking on cables, which happens, eventually wears out the effectiveness of the shield, this is something you may not notice for some time.

If you use a lead cable for too long it can even become microphonic, that is to say, it becomes hypersensitive to vibration.

Keep all your contact points clean including the input and output jacks on the guitar and any pedals in the setup. Check for cracks and wear and replace bad cables with the best you can afford.

Best Review of Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar

Have you ever heard of Yamaha FG700S,

a quite famous acoustic guitar brand?

Ah, the Yamaha FG.

 To many people, this has been the beginner’s guitar of choice – and even to some professional or amateur guitarists, this affordable (almost cheap) but reliable decades-lasting guitar makes an excellent travel guitar.

A closer look.

Yamaha is a Japanese company, and their FG series is manufactured in China – politics aside, the results are great. Chinese-built guitars are usual for entry-level guitars, but they’re usually known to last maybe four to five years, with quality ranging from pretty damn great to mediocre at best.

The FG700S belongs in the former range, with great sound quality, and a construction that has made it last decades in the hands of some of my friends.

I didn’t start with a Yamaha, neither have I owned one for very long, but I have had experience playing some of them from my friends – and there’s a reason Yamaha boasts that the FG has been their best-selling series since it was introduced in the 60s.

So let’s take a look at what’s been keeping it a success for the past half-century!
  • Features
  • BeNefits
  • As with most beginner guitars, the Yamaha sports a killer price.
  • There are guitars which are very cheap, just under 500 or under 300, but chances are you can get yourself a new FG700S for even a cheaper price somewhere on the internet.
  • But pricing isn’t what were here to discuss – it’s what the guitar really is that matters.
  • You’ll have to play it yourself to believe it, but the Yamaha FG700S sports great bright highs and heavy lows, a pleasant strum, and a composition of the regular rosewood for its fretboard (fingerboard), solid spruce wood for its top, and Chinese Nato wood for the sides and back.

Ok, let's watch this review video from another guy

about this model Yamaha FG700S - it's quite honest I think.

What I Like

  • Sturdy, affordable and versatile – it’s a beginner’s guitar, and a great one at that.
  • It’s got great sound for a guitar at its price point, and an amazing longevity at that.
  • It’s not tough to hold or play, and feels just right in the hands of most guitarists – myself included.

What I  Don't Like

  • One significant mention is the guitar’s fairly high action. It’s not high enough to warrant not considering it a great option, but it is something you should be aware of.
  • Being a beginner’s guitar, it’s lacking in the quality someone with more experience might want. While versatile, it scratches the surface of what guitars can do. 
  • It’s a standalone guitar, so you’ll have to buy yourself a case, stand, tuner, picks, extra strings and cleaning tools in the very least.

Conclusion:

My Rating

If you’re a beginner and you’re looking for a great guitar on a budget of under $300, then this is probably one of the best choices you can make.

However pushing your budget up to $500 opens other, much better options, so it’s a matter of price and of just how committed you’ll be to playing.

It makes sense to grab an affordable guitar when you’re not sure of whether or not you’ll stick to regular playing and practicing.

Honest review of Fender Squier Acoustic Guitar

Review Summary


Looking for a ridiculously affordable dreadnought by famous guitar makers Fender? I wasn’t, but I’m glad I found one – quality guitars at low prices are incredibly hard to come by, and even less so when they’re put on offer by a quality guitars at low prices.

This Squier is a beginner’s acoustic guitar, however, so a connoisseur might not be impressed with this model – but for what it’s worth, it’s a great example of what to look for when you’re first starting out, and here’s why.

Fender Squier Guitar is one of the best guitar beginners could aquire themselves with average budget. Practicing could both be easy and quality-solid with this piece of instrument."

Features

The Fender Squier Acoustic Guitar pack is meant for a single thing: being a beginner guitarist’s best friend.

It’s got pretty much everything you could want.

The guitar itself has a large dreadnought body, strap, book, bag, pick, a tuner, and a pitch pipe (which is strange, since a tuner is already included).

A dreadnought guitar is built for size and sound, which is why the name sounds so intimidating – it’s a reference to a type of warship, but that doesn’t mean this thing only cranks out violently loud music.

It’s great for folk or soul, and for simple open-position chords, the type you’d usually begin with when first playing the guitar.

Benefits

  • Although it doesn’t come with a case, the dreadnought-style body is a common one so you shouldn’t have a problem finding one.
  • In terms of longevity, my cousin got this guitar back in 2010, and it’s still in good condition – mind you, he does take good care of his instruments.
  • Other than that, the only note I’d like to make towards this guitar is that, despite it coming with a gig bag, don’t expect to use this as a professional.
  • Even if you change the strap and the strings, this is still a beginner’s guitar, meant to be comfortable and high-quality, yet not on-par with a career guitar.
  • It does have a comfortable feel to it, and for a beginner, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal in terms of value and quality.

What I like & don't like

What I like:

The guitar is great for beginners, large and loud and available at a great price.

It’s got decent action, a nice tone, and is built with a spruce top and a laminated agathis back. Watch this video below to enjoy beautiful voice by Squier Fender.

It comes with a long list of accessories – specifically a strap, a bag, a lessons book, a tuner, guitar picks and a pitch pipe.

It’s fairly long-lived for its price tag, so it’ll last you throughout your beginning years as a guitar player.​

What I don't like:

Fender is a large company – this means getting replacement parts or otherwise contacting and going through customer service due to missing parts of the set or other issues may leave you with little hope for resolution.

It can be tough to tune, and comes with low-quality factory stock strings.

The lessons included with the set are somewhat lackluster. The bag is also practically useless – you’ll want to buy a separate dreadnought gig case if you plan to go somewhere.

You could find another, perhaps better guitar, from a lesser known brand if you went through the trouble of digging deeper in search. However, if you get this at an even more discounted price, you’ll have gotten yourself an amazing find.​

4

Conclusion

This guitar is a beginner’s set – it’ll do well for a starter, but it falls very quickly short of anything serious. The extras are mostly negligible, but they’re still a significant factor, in particular the tuner and picks.

The straps and strings are best changed out, and you’ll want a different bag as well.

The guitar’s action – meaning, the distance between the strings and the fingerboard/fretboard – isn’t too high, so you won’t have to worry too much about hurting your fingers while playing.

Squier is Fender’s brand name for beginner’s electric guitars, but this one’s a Fender Squier Acoustic Guitar made of spruce and agathis, and features a hollow body. It’s very affordable as guitars go, and you get what you paid for – and a little more in the form of a warm, bright tune.

If you know someone interested in playing the guitar, but also know that they’ve never done it, then this would be an excellent choice.

Who Makes The Best Acoustic Guitars?

Knowing what is best is really a matter of preference and perception – but knowing what’s good is generally a matter of knowing what isn’t, and avoiding that. There are a few names in the guitar business that have successfully done so, long enough to become legendary brands – and there are newcomers that are well on their way to following in those rich footsteps.

But the question is, between the thousands of guitar makers out there, exactly who makes the best acoustic guitars?

best-acoustic-guitars-info-2

  • Gibson

Probably the most famous – and expensive –guitar makers in the world, Gibson Guitar Corporation have produced the very same guitars that many of today and yesterday’s rockstars became famous with. For over a hundred years, they’ve squarely stood as the kings of the guitar world.

Today, however, buying a Gibson is an investment you generally only make once in your life. And it’s one that’ll stick with you for a long time to come.

  • Fender

fender-guitar

The younger, yet not much less popular Fender is known specifically for their electric guitars – the Stratocaster and Telecaster – but that hasn’t stopped them from producing some of the best acoustic guitars out there.

Squier guitars, in particular (as subsidiary of Fender) are noted for their affordability and quality.

  • Ibanez

Ibanez-guitar

Noted for being the guitar sales front of Japan’s first instrument company to become successful in the West, Ibanez is named for the Salvador Ibanez guitars it imported from Spain in the late 20s; in the 30s, company Hoshino Gakki decided to continue the venture by making the guitars themselves with “Ibanez” becoming an eventual brand name.

Known for wild designs and a “lawsuit era”, they make some of the best acoustic guitars on the Japanese market.

  • Martin & Co.

Martin-Co-Guitar

Ancient compared to Gibson at over 180 years of service, Christian Frederick Martin’s guitar business venture has gone on to create some of the most valuable and best acoustic guitars in the instrument’s history – with steel-string vintage instruments that can, in some cases, be found on the market going for six-figure numbers. And even the regular flattops will cost you a few thousand dollars.

Uniquely, the company has more often than not been headed by a member of the Martin Family – today, that head is CEO C. F. Martin IV, the original founder’s great-great-great-grandson.

  • Paul Reed Smith

Paul-Reed-Smith-guitar

A rarity in the modern world of guitar makers, PRS Guitars’ founder is still alive, and jamming – Paul Reed Smith, master craftsman and guitarist, is owner to one of the youngest, and continuously more popular guitar companies. Specifically, it’s earned a reputation for custom instruments, and recently, affordable quality guitars. One particularly famous guitarist using a PRS Guitars-made model, is Carlos Santana.

These are the generally top 5 most respected guitar makers, among which you’ll definitely find most of the best acoustic guitars out there – but mind you, I didn’t write the above list in any particular order of quality, or ranking.

The History of the Gibson Acoustic Guitar

Everyone knows about the Gibson Guitar Corporation. They’re the producers of some of the best, and most historic guitars in the world – I mean, everyone’s seen a Gibson acoustic guitar. It’s a household name for guitarists, famous or trying to be, and the company’s story started over a century ago.

Gibson-acoustic-Guitar

Before the production of the guitar, Gibson started out as a business venture by Orville Gibson, who patented a mandolin with mass-production capabilities. Along with other designs, he made a buck specifically off of the Italian instrument – but upon his death in the late 1910s, the company was in dire need of some updated merchandise.

Over the next two decades, Gibson expanded into the world of electric guitars, banjos and mandolins, but production and innovation came to a slowdown when the company had to face the realities of the Second World War, and the shortage it produced in metal and wood. As workers became soldiers, the company turned to women to produce some 25,000 guitars.

The post-war era then immediately lead into the creation of Gibson’s most iconic design line thanks to the acquisition of Ted McCarty, whose work with Les Paul led to the eponymous Les Paul guitars, and the bombed, yet still iconic Flying V and Explorer guitars, which angled for that craved “modernistic” look that just… didn’t really cut it with audiences and musicians at the time.

The company fell into a rare, and hopefully quickly forgotten quality slump after its parent company was taken over, but since returning to the spotlight with the same extremely high-quality as ever, Gibson has managed to retain its name and reputation as one of, if not the biggest and best producer of acoustic and electric guitars alike.

acoustic-guitar-maker-1

Just ask legends like Frank Zappa, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton, all of which used Gibson guitars – it certainly didn’t hurt their careers.

121 years past its founding, the Gibson Guitar Corporation certainly has gained one thing – a flair for excellence and extravagance. One set of three high-quality, absolutely stunningly beautiful anniversary mandolins costs a tremendous $60,000. A nigh-on ridiculous fee, but not for the connoisseur (who might just happen to have way too much money). Another example is a Gibson acoustic guitar coming in at $4,999; or, for an extra $5,000 at $9,999, the same guitar but with Bob Dylan’s own personal autograph on it.

But there’s something else that sets the Gibson acoustic guitar apart from the products of most other manufacturers, and from Gibson’s own electric guitars. And that is an absolutely guaranteed reputation. Aside from countless celebrity endorsements by guitarists whose skill and fame have made them godlike in the eyes of fans, Gibson’s rich history and prices demand the respect of millions, who rightfully commend the company on its continued devotion to the art of guitar making, and to the customers who indulge and honor that art with their musical skill and creative innovation.

How To Spot A Good Acoustic Guitar Magazine

Any proper acoustic guitar enthusiast needs information, and information changes. Keeping up with your passion, though, is ridiculously easy nowadays due to the Internet. All you need to know is what to look for, and where – and you’ll find it!

But, what acoustic guitar magazines are legitimate, qualitative and truly informative? I’m here to give you a little run-down and take a look at some of the things a good acoustic guitar magazine absolutely must have. Let’s go!

acoustic-guitar-magazines-1

  1. Detailed Reviews

An obvious marking of a good acoustic guitar magazine is the amount of effort put into product, song and artist reviews – specifically when it comes to acoustic guitars. Some famous publications like Acoustic Nation and Interactive Guitar Magazine know what they’re talking about, but you don’t have to look far for other acoustic guitar magazines that get the job done.

Alright then, what constitutes a good review? Firstly, it has to give you an idea of the feel of the product. If you’re looking for a magazine to help you with finding the best acoustic fit for you, then you want the opinion of an expert who can make you picture just what any given guitar would feel like in your hand, what it could sound like, how cumbersome it is, and so on.

  1. Quality Playing Tips

The key point to a source of information is that it tells you something you don’t already know – and key to a good acoustic guitar magazine is the ability to continuously surprise and interest its readers. Playing tips are crucial – what sets gypsy rock apart from other rock? How can you achieve that perfect folk chord? What stops you from turning your acoustic guitar into a metal-blaring machine?

guitar-playing-tips

An acoustic guitar is ridiculously versatile – an acoustic guitar magazine should emulate that versatility in what it can teach its readership, you potentially included.

  1. Interviews

Probably the most interesting and crucial part to any magazine, is the interviews it features. As a reader, it’s completely up to you and your tastes what kind of interviews you enjoy, but most people would agree that the more prominent and experienced the interviewee, the better the end result.

Prominence and fame isn’t quite important, of course – the best magazines can pull out an interesting story from anyone, no matter what career they’ve had.

  1. Relevant And Updated News

While a cheesy point to make, news is called news because it’s new – old news is an oxymoron, and has no place in any good acoustic guitar magazine. The meat and potatoes of an acoustic guitar magazine is its news section, and depending on the magazine’s publication frequency, it’s the one thing a reader should compromise on the least. You want to know what’s going on in the music scene, don’t you? Then it’s imperative that you get the best quality in guitar and music news.

Finally, cost is an issue. A lot of high-quality publications charge money for a full version – aside from making sure that a premium cost is worth the trouble, comparing pricing is another factor to deciding what magazine to pick. It isn’t a crucial one, however, given the comparative and relatively low costs of premium acoustic guitar magazines.

5 Benefits of Joining an Acoustic Guitar Forum

It’s the age of the Internet, and that means lots and lots of information shooting around online at rates that would have been unimaginable just a handful of decades ago. The Information Age has swept through every aspect of culture, and the subject of guitars is no exception to the rule.

But, that’s a benefit. A good thing, in nearly every way – one specific way being the emergence of acoustic guitar forums on which to meet other people from all around the world, enthusiastic about acoustic guitars. And there’s a lot to be gained from that.

  1. Information

For one, acoustic guitar forums are an excellent source of information. On practically any subject. Whether you’re looking for news, or trivia, or general guides and tips, you’re bound to find something useful and relevant – and best of all, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, all you need to do is ask for it and chances are someone will be able to help.

5-Benefits-of-Joining-an-Acoustic-Guitar-Forum-1

Information travels quickly on the web, and oftentimes people are happy to tell each other things, if only to show off what they know. That makes learning online miles easier (and cheaper) than other more traditional methods.

  1. New Music

Music goes on past generations and cultural barriers, past wars and times of change and crisis – and in the light (and dark) of all of time, it changes constantly. To some, that’s a bad thing – but if you’re willing to dig a little and keep an open mind, it can mean finding hidden gems you might’ve never dreamed of.

5-Benefits-of-Joining-an-Acoustic-Guitar-Forum-2

Listening to the same old music over and over again can become a jading experience, so fresh, new music from folks who know just what good music is like is always welcome, even when you least expect it to be.

  1. Playing Tips and Tricks

There’s no end to learning how to play the guitar, and any real guitarist would tell you the same. An acoustic guitar forum would provide not just info and music, but an absolutely free source of countless tips and tricks, guides and comments, and nuggets of general wisdom from guitarists who may have been playing for much, much longer than you.

how-to-play-guitar

  1. Hands-on Reviews

Product reviews are commonplace on the Internet, and especially in online forums. It’s no surprise, then, that one of the biggest attractions in an acoustic guitar forum would be the forum’s ability to judge and inform others about, yep: acoustic guitars. There are thousands of guitar makers in the world, and thousands of aficionados who buy from them, and in today’s connected world, chances are that you’ll find a review to a guitar you’re interested in with nothing more than a forum’s search engine.

  1. Friendship

Finally, and maybe most importantly of all, an acoustic guitar forum can be a chance to make friends in relation to a common interest that truly transcends borders, languages and cultures. With the Internet, none of those matter anyways as staying in touch is a question of time zones and the right software.
