The Epiphone PR5-E

Epiphones are widely considered to be the in-house knockoffs of the more expensive Gibson models, but that isn't always the case. The PR5 is an Epiphone only model that is quite versatile, flexible, and sounds way better than any slim line acoustic ought to. It is an acoustic-electric, the electronics have a built in tuner, tone controls, and a phase switch. The hardware includes Grover tuners that actually do stay in tune. Currently it is only available in the natural finish, so if you want a black or burst finish, off to Reverb or E-bay to begin your search. The one below is a 2015 made in Indonesia at the Samik factory.
