Epiphone Acoustic Electric: PR5-E
by Guitar Guru
Great Beginner’s Acoustic-Electric Guitar
If you are a beginning guitarist seeking a great guitar, then the Epiphone PR5-E Acoustic-Electric Guitar may be just what you are looking for. This classic little number was designed to look and play like the Epiphone Sheraton and Casino, but at a price that is affordable for everyone, even those who are just starting out.
With a select spruce top, the PR5-E has an arched mahogany back and sides, this Epiphone is made with an eye on quality. Combine the spruce top and mahogany body with the X-bracing system and you get a guitar that produces a surprisingly sweet tone that you will absolutely fall in love with and the sharp cutaway makes those higher frets much easier to play. But one of the greatest things about the PR5-E is its eSonic preamp and the NanoFlex pickup system.
These electronics ensure that your playing will be heard no matter what the situation. The controls will enable you to avoid any unwanted feedback and to manage the volume so that you can be heard but will not overpower other players.
At just ~$299, this is an instrument that you will not regret purchasing. In fact, you are going to enjoy playing it so much that you are going to want to purchase a
Epiphone Les Paul Hardshell Case
(~$89). While these can be a bit pricey, it will protect your investment and make sure that it doesn’t get ruined by exposure to dust or rain.
While not as clear or as deep of tone as other more expensive acoustic-electric guitars, the Epiphone PR-5E Acoustic-Electric Guitar will give you a great head start in learning how to play and will provide you with years’ worth of playtime as you hone your guitar playing skills.
