Epiphone Pro-1
« on: April 15, 2016, 09:01:30 am »
I have been thinking about of an epiphone pro-1. Im currently working with a crappy secondhand electric guitar that a musician friend gave me, and would like to move on to an acoustic guitar. It seems like the best option in my price bracket (as well as being a pretty good guitar in general) which is about $200. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks =D

I don't think a pretty good acoustic can be had for $200. A cheap one can. I'd suggest saving a bit more and looking at yamaha

I'm not familiar with the Epiphone Pro-1, but agree with Drubbing that your best bet is probably to save a little bit more.

The     YAMAHA
FGX720SC AC/E GTR W/C-AY S-SPR  is  a very nice entry level acoustic with a solid spruce top and a good tone.
For around $499 AUD  - about $385 USD

Fender have some nice lower priced acoustics for example the
Fender   CD-140S has a solid top too and a very nice sound, especially on the mahogany top

I went to guitar center and played every acoustic in the 2-500usd range.  I brought home the Epiphone Pro-1.  It tuned true (a lot of the other guitars did not) , and sounded great through the acoustic amp. It has a decent action, and looks great too.  It's no Gibson workhorse, but for the money I'm happy.
   It's got a pretty hot pickup, and a fuller sound than a lot of the others (solid top).  I like the "long" tuners. (Easy slow tuning)

Just picked up my first acoustic - PRS SE Angelus.  I got it off the used market for $400 and am quite pleased.  At least around here, the used market is pretty strong . . . lots of people buy the instruments and then never use them.  My gain!  :)
