Epiphone PR-5E Electro Acoustic Guitar, Natural
For almost 20 years, the Epiphone PR-5E has taken the stage with countless musicians. Designed by Epiphone in 1990, it's distinctive body shape was patterned after Epiphone's classic 335 guitars such as the Sheraton and Casino. But instead of a double-cutaway, it features a unique, single 'Florentine' or sharp cutaway. The result is a large lower bout providing excellent lows and solid mid-range with easy access to the upper frets on the neck.

The premium Select Spruce top uses a hand-scalloped, proprietary X-bracing pattern. Combined with the slightly arched Mahogany back and Mahogany sides, the PR-5E provides a sweet tone that projects well even when unplugged. It's Mahogany neck with 'SlimTaper™' profile, makes the PR-5E very easy and comfortable to play without fatigue. Legendary Grover™ machine heads for tuning accuracy and stability with premium gold hardware and split-diamond, pearloid fingerboard inlays make the PR-5E an attractive proposition.
Now with the Revolutionary eSonic™ System!
Recently updated with Epiphone's new, eSonic™ preamp and NanoFlex™ pickup system, the PR-5E comes alive when plugged in. Made in co-operation with Shadow Germany, the new eSonic preamp features a built-in, easy to use tuner. When engaged, the guitar's output is automatically muted – with no 'popping' noise - making it a perfect choice for stage use. You can even push in the 'tuner' button and unplug the guitar without a loud 'pop'. Other controls on this state-of-the-art preamp include Master Volume, Bass, Treble, EQ Shape, Low Battery indicator and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. The preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are not only lightweight, but provide significantly longer life than old-fashioned, heavy 9V batteries. Under the PR-5E's compensated saddle, is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. Not a piezo, this unique flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics and picks up not only string vibration but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezos.
