Great for blues with a solid top and built utilizing a revolutionary technique of frequency matching.

Small bodied guitars produced the sound of the blues coming out of the deep south at the turn of the century. The Hohner Essential Roots EP1-SO Acoustic Guitar with its shorter scale length and 12 fret neck joint will find its home with blues fingerpicking and slide guitarists. Combining classic body styles with Essential Series technology makes the Essential Roots ready for the modern player. The Essential Series represents a new area of innovation with Hohner guitars.

These guitars are built utilizing a revolutionary technique Hohner calls Frequency Matching. Hohners technicians utilize a form of tap tuning to determine the resonant frequencies of the woods and then match the solid Sitka spruce tops with similarly resonant mahogany backs. The Essential Roots are also NVI Equipped. This special nut and bridge assures that these guitars play with dramatically improved intonation, up and down the length of the neck making them a pleasure to play.

All Hohner Essential guitars go through a 12 point inspection process at Hohners US facility to make sure every guitar is set up to sound and play great.

Hohner Essential Roots EP1-SO Acoustic Guitar

Comments about Hohner Essential Roots EP1-SO Acoustic Guitar:

If you want an inexpensive blues box, this is the one.
If you want an expensive blues box, this still might be the one.
Great looking, great sounding 12 fret L-1 style acoustic. Authentic boxy blues tone without the headaches of a vintage instrument. Good intonation, sustain, and resonance. Easy playing 1-3/4" nut width rosewood fingerboard. Very nice satin sunburst finish. Only drawback is the hokey headstock.
Upgrade the tuners and you'll never put her down.
Better than other higher priced L-1 reproductions. Better than a lot of old Gibsons, too.
