OVERVIEW

For such an easy-to-afford guitar, the Epiphone PR-150 is a standout -- a perfect instrument to get started on. It is a dreadnought and features a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard. The PR-150 sounds great and this Epiphone's sunburst finish gives it the look of a far more expensive guitar.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

A great beginner's guitar.

This was my second purchase from Musician's Friend and I continue to be impressed with the quality, price and condition of their products. My Epiphone PR-150 (Vintage Sunburst) sounds as great as it looks...and it looks AWESOME! Holds tune after lengthy jammin', excellent craftsmanship and the finishing detail is what you would expect from a much more expensive guitar. I hesitated to get the Sunburst finish, now it is one of the things I like best about it. It's so easy to play and sounds so good it actually inspires me to practice! Great right out of the box. My brother suggested some high quality strings, but I can't imagine it sounding better. Quite a score for [$]

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:

          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.

                I bought this guitar for my 12 year old daughter. At first she thought it was too big but with her learning a few chords she has decided it is good size for her especially now she knows she will eventually grow into it. Now all we need is a case.

                  Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

                  I bought this guitar for my son who is almost 15. He has been playing an old Yamaha acoustic that I had around the house for probably 30 years. He is starting to really show some promise, so I thought I would get him something a little better. This guitar is a great value for the money. It arrived, we took it out of the box, tuned it, and it was ready. We ended up replacing the strings with a better set, but just because we already had them at the house. But the strings that came on the guitar would have been fine. This guitar has a great sound. I played it a little - the strings are set about right for me, close enough to the frets without any buzz at all. It seems to stay in tune well, I haven't noticed my son tuning it hardly at all. Overall a good value from a good company. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that the frets feel a little rough to me at the very top and very bottom edges. This won't effect the playing, and I could probably smooth them out with some very fine sandpaper, but for now it doesn't bother my son...So to sum it up, great looking and great sounding guitar..I wouldn't be ashamed to use it on stage...

                  Love the guitar. Came with fret buzz. After adjusting the truss rod, it is minimal.
