For almost 20 years, the Epiphone Performer PR-5E has been on stages all over the world with countless musicians. Designed by Epiphone in 1990, its distinctive body shape was patterned after Epiphone's classic ES-335 style guitars such as the Sheraton and Casino. But instead of a double-cutaway, the Performer PR-5E features a unique, single "Florentine" or sharp cutaway. The large lower bout provides excellent lows and a solid mid-range with easy access to the upper frets on the neck.

The Performer PR-5E features a premium select spruce top with a hand-scalloped, proprietary X-bracing pattern. Combined with the slightly arched mahogany back and mahogany sides, the Performer PR-5E provides a sweet tone that projects well even when unplugged. The select mahogany neck has a 25.5" scale and the SlimTaper profile makes the Performer PR-5E easy and comfortable to play long gigs and rehearsals. The Performer PR-5E features Premium Die-cast machine heads for tuning accuracy and stability along with premium gold hardware and split-diamond, pearloid fingerboard and Epiphone's Sloped Dovewing headstock.

The Performer PR-5E lives up to its name with Fishman electonics. Case not included.

WoW no wonder the reviews are GREAT!!!! @ Martins and a Taylor and I ply this one more often now! David was beyond GREAT!! Great company - I will buy again from Sam Ash



Like No Other Guitar


Even if it didn't sound phenomenal plugged-in (which it does), it looks like nothing else. So cool. The neck is thin and easy to play like an electric guitar. I've been playing for over 55 years and own or have owned countless guitars of all kinds and prices. This Epiphone ranks among my all-time favorites. You have to realize that this guitar is not intended to be an acoustic-only instrument. It's much too thin for any appreciable unplugged volume, but it shines through an amp or PA as an acoustic-electric. I have no complaints whatsoever with construction, finish, hardware -- you name it -- only with the fact that it consumes the two required nickle-sized Lithium batteries at an alarming rate -- seems like they're dead every time I want to play. Other than that, a quality instrument at a reasonable price.

Fantastic Quality


I love this guitar! Apart from being absolutely gorgeous, it's got a very bright tone, and the neck makes gliding over the frets easy as pie! Solid. Versatile. Great quality. I would recommend adding this guitar to anyone's collection!



I Will keep it but i will buy an acoustic guitar in México


Domestic use, a Strong and well manufactured guitar, beatiful design , Machine head beatiful and strong, but a narrow neck, i dont have wide fingers and its dificult to press a single string, and i dont like the sound is more electric than acoustic



I'm happy with my purchase.


This guitar sounds great for the price! it also has a nice weight to it without it feeling like a cardboard box.



Great Store


My guitar sounds great! The staff at Sam ash are very helpful and informative. I feel good about every purchase I've made at Sam ash.



I would definitely by it again and recommend Sam Ash


I'm using this guitar at the church choir and it sounds great, I love it.



my Skunk Baxter/Courtney Love guitar


I have not tried it in public yet, but I'm sure it would do well. Looks-wise, I was afraid of how the lighter color Pau Ferro fretboard would look compared to the usual rosewood fretboard, but it still looks nice. Build quality is great out of the box, didn't need to have anything done to it. #sweepstakes

This is an outstanding guitar for the price.


I play this guitar in a band. The action, feel and sound is excellent and the pick-ups are as good if not better than many guitars that are priced much higher. SamAsh delivered the guitar quickly and the service was great.

2nd time was much better than the first.


Sam Ash resolved the issue I had with the first guitar very fast. They were extremely understanding and made sure I was well taken care of, and overnighted a guitar in perfect condition and working order. I shall remain a loyal customer.
