For almost 20 years, the Epiphone 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 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 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 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 PR-5E easy and comfortable to play long gigs and rehearsals. The 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 lives up to its name with the new Epiphone eSonic Preamp with NanoFlex. Made in cooperation with Shadow Germany, the eSonic Preamp with NanoFlex 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, NanoFlex Tone, NanoMag Tone, Stereo Blend, 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. Case not included.

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.
