The Epiphone PR-5E Acoustic/Electric Guitar: Ideal for High-Volume Performance

Somebody asked me via Twitter D-Message the other day why the Epiphone PR-5E Acoustic/Electric Guitar is considered “Ideal for Live, High-Volume Performance”. This person had obviously been reading our current website feature (located here) and it dawned on me that most people probably don’t realize that the PR-5E has a shallower depth than a traditional acoustic. The PR-5E body is only 3.5″ thick which reduces the possibility of feedback at high volume… but the cool thing is that with it’s jumbo-like lower bout and the impressive eSonic preamp system with NanoFlex pickup… it still sounds rich and full through a PA system. The Florentine cutaway also makes it easy for the shredders to access the upper frets. If you want to learn more about this guitar CLICK HERE.

That’s Steve in the picture… he just set this one up in our USA facility and it will soon be on its way to a dealer and a new home with some lucky guitarist. The PR-5E is a great performance acoustic guitar… yes… even at HIGH VOLUME!

    I played one of these last week. You’re right, I had no idea how thin it was. Great feeling guitar and I’ll say I was somewhat surprised. Had no idea how great it is. Don’t let the looks fool you

    Great guitar for live performances. Less feedback, great upper fret access and really good acoustic tones. Hard to beat for the money.

    I have a PR-5E and while I like the sound, I really like the neck. It’s thin, fast and smooth. Very comfortable. This is my go-to acoustic. Thanks Epi!

    Wow! what an idea ! What a concept ! Beautiful .. Amazing one way to make the set up of you drum set easier is to use a carpet or rug as a guide. Mark the carpet with tape or a marker in the locations where your bass drum sits, the feet for your floor toms, and any other hardware. Bring that carpet with you to your show, and follow the guide to your perfect setup 09:43
