OVERVIEW

A blues legend reborn with Fishman electronics for more sonic power and a limited ebony finish.

This Limited Edition EL-00 PRO Acoustic/Electric guitar is a direct descendent of Epiphone's original line of flattops which go back to the Golden Age of acoustic guitars, the 1930s. This smaller "parlor" or "blues box" style acoustic guitar is favored by blues players of all eras for its compressed, woody tonal quality, short scale, and comfortable weigh. The combination makes it ideal for fingerpicking or the bark of a bottle neck slide. It features a select mahogany body with solid spruce top, rosewood bridge and mahagony neck, again, a mixture of tonewoods that'll fit right in the blues pocket.

Now featuring the Fishman Sonitone soundhole preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup, the EL-00 PRO Acoustic/Electric can be plugged-in and heard on any size stage with first class acoustic/electric sound. The pickup is set underneath the saddle. The Sonitone sounhole preamp is an active preamp mounted in the soundhole with easy-to-access mounted rotary controls for Master Volume and Tone adjustment. Now you can make your adjustments during soundcheck and even fine adjustments on-the-fly during your set. No more running back and forth to your amp or the soundboard. The active preamp is powered by a single 9-volt battery. You can connect your Epiphone EL-00 PRO to a PA or amp of your choice with a standard 1/4" instrument cable.

The EL-00 PRO Acoustic/Electric features a solid spruce top with 3-ply black and white binding. The solid spruce top will improve in tone as it ages. The more you play it, the better it will sound. The body features select mahogany with single-ply white binding on the back. The mahogany neck and body combined with the solid spruce top make for the perfect combination of tone, warmth and brilliance with a bigger sound than you would expect from a smaller-sized guitar.

The smaller body (15.5" wide at lower bout) and straight rosewood bridge also influence the EL-00 PRO's distinctive voice which is more focused than a dreadnought and perfect for singers. The rosewood bridge features a compensated imitation bone saddle. The 24.75" scale select mahogany neck has a SlimTaper D profile with a 1.68" nut and is set with a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint using premium Titebond glue. The rosewood fingerboard has a 12" radius, single-ply black binding, 19 medium frets, and pearloid dot inlays. The tortoise shell style pickguard has a vintage metal "E" and this limited edition EL-00 PRO comes with an ebony finish.

This special guitar also features Epiphone's no-nonsense quality including nickel hardware, strap buttons, a 1/4" endpin, Grover 14:1 machine heads with mini-buttons, D'Addario Phosphor (12-53) strings, and carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.

    I wasn't 100% on this guitar but I was pleasantly surprised by its tone and feel and the fisherman pickup sounds great through my loud box mini

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EL-00 PRO Acoustic Guitar Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The feel and the sound of this guitar are great, but the quality of the craftsmanship is questionable. When I first got it, the endpin on the jack came off because it was not tightened at all, and after a few weeks of having it, the bridge began to peel off of the body. Had to wood glue the bridge back on and now it is sturdy and plays well. Very disappointed I had to repair it myself, but you get what you pay for.

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EL-00 PRO Acoustic Guitar Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I was disappointed that it was not set up. The strings were too high and therefore uncomfortable to play. It would probably be a good guitar if you take the time, or pay to have it set up ( but that negates the reasonable price point)
