This is certainly a package I'd recommend to someone with not a lot of money to spend. The amp is powerful enough for a small coffee-house, and as I said, the guitar is a treat to play. The included gig bag is what you'd expect in a package of this price, though you'll probably want to upgrade to one with more padding when you can.
This Epiphone is a very comfortable guitar to play. Having used it repeatedly for open-mic nights as well as weekly church services, this lightweight guitar is a treat, both to carry and to play. The 3-band eq is nicely balanced and accurate. I would have preferred a strap nut on the body of the guitar (on the left as you're holding it), rather than having to tie the strap at the head, but maybe that's just me.

The included 15W amp packs a lot of wollop for its size, though I found the built-in chorus fairly cheesy-sounding. Okay for that specific effect, I suppose, though I would have preferred a simple and more universally applicable reverb.
The guitar is constructed soundly, as you'd expect from any Epiphone product. I do have a frustrating problem, however, on the low E-string. No matter what I try, I have to tune it slightly flat in order to maintain accurate pitch when pressed. Plus, at least on mine, that same string plays just slightly "muddier" than the others. I'm sure no one notices but me (at least I hope that's the case). The instrument has a nice, warm sound, though I was a bit surprised at the folksy smallness of the sound. I'm sure it's just that I'd never played a smaller guitar before, and the sound works well for more earthy music. But for dinner music at a restaurant, you're better to stay with a fuller-sounding full-size.

And while solidly constructed, my amp developed a little "crackle" in the volume control long before I thought appropriate.
A very good guitar for the money. A killer deal? No, and I think a little more effort on Epiphone's part would have yielded a slightly less "buggy" instrument for the same money. Still, for 200 bucks, it does what it's supposed to do: sound good.

There are two MAJOR PROBLEMS with this guitar. The first one is that there's something wrong with the tuning key on the third string(G string), which makes it impossible for me to tune the string to G, the second one on the first string (E string, whichever fret I press from 9-15 fret, the sound will be like it's on 15th fret, same thing happen to the third string around 7-9 fret.

Disappointed and wanna refund.

        I bought these for my two granddaughters, for Christmas. My sons, their daddies, were completely blown away!!! We all three play guitar, so we know quality, and these are!! Their daughters will learn very well with these!! Everything you need to get started, all in one box!! Also, the free shipping was remarkable; They shipped Monday morning, and arrived Tuesday night!! You cannot beat that!!!

            I purchased this for my husband, who's tooled around with cheaper acoustic guitars in the past...couldn't wait to give it to him for Christmas, so an early present!
            He's very happy with it so far...only issue to report is it going out of tune more frequently than he expected, but as neither of us are musicians, that may be more on us than on the guitar itself!
            REALLY happy with my purchase...made the best gift ever!

              Comments about Epiphone PR-4E Acoustic-Electric Guitar Player Pack:

              I got this pack back in the 2011 (the ebony one). And I could say that I got no problems at all. Nice guitar, good craft, nice sound, and decent pickup.
              I'm not saying that I'm going to play with this one on a stadium, but for the price, Is a very good piece. The amplifier has a decent sound also; not the best, but has a good one for small places.

              A nice pack for playing in bars in my opinion.

              Played well right out of box after tuning. Great little practice amp included with package works well with my other guitar and dobro. Smaller body size of guitar will make it ideal as a travel guitar. Musicians friend always provides great service and information and I am very pleased with this purchase.

              I will update my review after a few months after some small gigs and jam sessions, but for the price this package cannot be beat,

              Comments about Epiphone PR-4E Acoustic-Electric Guitar Player Pack:

              Seriously folks, I was hesitant, and I am VERY glad I overcame that and ordered this Value Pack. The guitar was set up great when I got it. I changed over to D'Addario Light Phospher Bronze strings, tuned it and that was it. Plug and Jam, the action is great all the way up the board. No buzz, none at all. I tune using rhe Equal Tempered (Perfect Fifth) and she holds the tuning through lots of hours of hard playing. I tend to be rather heavy handed and have had zero problems. I am very pleased with the Epi and recomend it highly. Especially to beginers, the action is so light they will not need to suffer through sore fingers so much. In the words of The Monkees, I'm A Believer.
