Received this guitar today, and was really looking forward to giving it as a gift. After the initial inspection, it was seen to have a crack in the neck pocket area where the neck was beginning to separate from the body. The fret edges were like razors and were not the result of a shrunken neck, but were simply poorly beveled/filed. I was not expecting to receive a 2000.00 Martin however; based on the stellar reviews, I was expecting a guitar without defects that played within the realm of an entry level guitar. The pain/cuts that would result from playing this neck alone would make a younger person quit. Honestly, how hard is it for Epiphone to take 2 long pieces of masking tape place them on the sides of the neck, and sand the edges of the frets? The guitar says "setup in the USA". Obviously, setup in the USA means a truss rod adjustment only without a quality inspection. As of now it is on the way back to MF and I am waiting for them to receive it so they can send out another one. Hoping the 2nd time around I get a guitar from an inspector who actually released a passable instrument. All things said, the guitar does show promise as the action is fantastic, and the stock strings make it sound very pleasing to my ears. If it were not for the neck, I would have taken care of the frets myself however; a separated neck will only get worse with time so in my case its rinse repeat. If not for the neck, this would have been a 3.5 to 4 star purchase.

Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

Good guitar for the value certainly. Action is a little high in places, and some of the frets are uneven which translates to fret buzz. Great guitar to have around for campfires/jamming/practice. I've had this guitar since 2008, and the finish is still as nice as it was when I bought it. I did swap out the tuners with Grovers, as the factory tuners had quite a bit of slip to them; leading to constant tuning adjustments.

Doesn't sound as rich as my Yamaha FG-345, but certainly does the job. Good for a beginner or someone wanting a kick around guitar that they can take on surf trips or camping trips etc.

    Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar has surprisingly good sound and is well-constructed and finished, especially considering its modest cost. I was very pleasantly surprised. I expected and was prepared to accept less.

    I usually play 12-string and gravitate toward folk music. I bought this guitar as a replacement for my sole six-string. The guitar it's replacing was made by one of the top names in the business, but I've never been especially happy with its sound. This inexpensive PR-150 has much better sound than the supposedly more upscale guitar that it's replacing.

    Cosmetically, there is a small scuff on the edge on the back of the body. It will be easily fixed and is not very noticeable, but I'm surprised that the factory missed it. It's no biggie.

    Setup-wise, it arrived nearly perfect. The intonation and action are almost perfect along the whole length of the neck, and it tuned beautifully and stayed tuned. Overall, I'm impressed. However, the third fret is very slightly high and causes some buzzing when the first, second, or fifth strings are played hard while fingered at the second fret. That will be a quick adjustment, so it's no big deal.

    The sound is rich and pretty well-balanced with the factory strings. There's a bit more treble than bass, but not very much. The volume is also pretty good. I'd give it 8 out of 10, volume-wise. It's not the loudest guitar I've played, but it's certainly not weak. I might experiment with heavier strings on the bottom. Or maybe steel-and-silk strings. I think this guitar would sing with steel-and-silk.

    All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase. It's a better guitar than I thought it would be, and an excellent value for the money. I think it would be an especially good choice for a new guitarist because it's inexpensive, but it has sound and quality that they won't soon outgrow. I personally would have no hesitation playing it onstage at a local show or folk festival.

      Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

      I picked up the PR-150 about eight months ago, on sale, for a very good price, with the intention of having an inexpensive acoustic guitar I could lug to open mics and such, free from the fear that I would care much if it got stolen or broken. I trusted the Epiphone name for such a purchase, as the brand does have a history behind it to uphold (one would hope).

      So I received my PR-150 without a lot of expectations. I'd arbitrarily opted for the sunburst model. It's quite handsome. I started playing the guitar straight out of the box and I have not put it down since. I love this guitar! I love it! I've had dozens of acoustic guitars in my life, many fairly expensive, big name guitars. I would not trade this one for any of them. The tone is clean and rich, with a full, throaty bottom end and melodic, percussive upper tone. Very Beatles-esque. It sounds every bit the same as the Gibson J-160 acoustic guitars used on the early Beatles' records (Yellow Submarine).

      These guitars are mass-produced, so it's not what I would call top of the line craftsmanship here. But it's certainly superior than what I expected for the price. My only misgiving: I wish the guitar had better tuners. The ones included are adequate, and the guitar stays in tune fine. But they are not the quality a guitar that sounds this good should have. It's quite difficult to replace Epiphone tuners as they are a unique size.

      The intonation is sweet. The set-up perfect. The frets have slightly sharp ends--but nothing to get hung about. It sounds good with a cheap acoustic pick-up in it and it's just a ball to play. I would not trade this guitar for any other. I guard this guitar with my life.

      Maybe I was lucky and got that one in a million guitar. But I kind of doubt it. I think in the PR-150 you can expect a real reliable guitar with a good sound for a good price. I'm thinking seriously about getting another one--that I can take to open mics and such.

              an inexpensive, hacker-beater to have around for quick use & not to worry about damage... for me: action not very good, as strings are set too high, fret brass very thin/sharp, also fret brass extends over the side of fingerboards... there is noticeable rattle/buzz on some notes & chords... & I was really surprised that it has stayed in tune.. overall finish is very good, but arrived with a deep scratch on pick guard, not worth returning over.. this was an internet purchase...if i hands on tested this guitar before purchase, probably would have walked away from it, as I have seen many as good or even better in pawn shops @ this price.. on the other hand what can one expect.. it certainly wont be the quality of my old Gibson Heritage... at best, an "OK" buy as price included free shipping. & I think serves its intended purpose.
