Default Interesting Test of Recent Vintage Epiphone

I just came across this video (in French, but itís easy enough to follow). The presenter has DíA Chromes on one of the round hole Zenithís. It sounds much better that way (to me, but then I have used Chromes for almost 30
years):

Having just bought a G-200 that I am enjoying immensely (itís like a flattop for archtop players), I am not going to rush out and track down a Zenith. But itís on my radar for the future.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge, but what brand is the G-200?

Gibson, part of the Generation Collection:

I love it. Itís probably the closest I will get to owning something like an L-5 Premier or Super 400, because big archtops tend towards five figures and I canít justify spending that much. This one was on sale at $500 below list price and too good to pass up.
