Epiphone PR-5E Electro Acoustic, Natural

The Epiphone PR-5E Electro Acoustic, Natural has been an iconic guitar within the Epiphone lineup since its introduction in 1990. It was designed with classic ES-335 in mind, which is present with its large lower bout for enhanced resonance and full-sounding tone; however it features a single, florentine cutaway in place of a double cutaway, like the Sheraton and Casino. The PR-5E is crafted with mahogany back and sides, that deliver rich, full-bodied tones with plenty of resonance; and it is topped with select spruce, for crisp and focused highs as well as excellent response. The addition of premium Shadow NanoFlex Pickup and eSonic Preamp System, provides the Epiphone PR-5E with beautifully projected, acoustic tones when plugged in. Finished in a sleek Natural and complete with a decorated soundhole, the Epiphone PR-5E Electro Acoustic looks just as good as it sounds.

Loaded With Revolutionary Electronics

The Epiphone PR-5E Guitar is equipped with a NanoFlex Pickup System. The NanoFlex Pickup is located under the saddle, and it provides a 'truly acoustic' tone by combining both body and string tone for sonically pleasing amplification. The pickups does this by using its integrates active electronics to picking up both string vibrations and body vibrations, without the harshness of a piezo pickup. There is also an eSonic Preamp System on-board the PR-5E that features an on-board tuner, a Phase switch, 2-Band EQ and Dynamics control for versatile tonal sculpting.

Mahogany Neck Paired With Rosewood Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the neck infuses the Epiphone PR-5E Electro Acoustic with beautiful warmth, resonance, and a clear top end. Using mahogany for both the body and neck enhances its natural resonance, allowing it to respond well to numerous techniques and playing styles with ease. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that adds warmth and clarity to the overall tone, while its smooth surface provide a comfortably energetic playing experience.

Dynamic Mahogany & Spruce Construction

Crafted with mahogany back and sides, and topped with select spruce, the Epiphone PR-5E Electro-Acoustic Guitar delivers an array of sonically pleasing tones to suit different playing styles. Mahogany provides a rich, sonic warmth, with plenty of resonance and it offers thick, meaty mids; deep, woody lows; and good amounts of bite. The mahogany combined with the spruce top, extends the mahogany's tonal range to enhance the overall sound with bright, tight and expressive characteristics. The spruce top also delivers wide dynamic response, as well as a direct and focused tone.

Distinctive Body Shape

The PR-5E was designed back in 1990 by Epiphone Guitars, with the intention of having a similar body shape to the classic ES-335 style guitars such as Sheraton and Casino. The PR-5E has a large lower bout that delivers excellent resonance, as well as a thicker and fuller tone. Unlike the ES-335 Style guitars, the PR=5E has a single Florentine cutaway, for enhanced comfort as well as adding elegant aesthetics.
