A blues legend plugs in with the Fishman Sonitone and Sonicore System!


The Epiphone EL-00 Studio Acoustic/Electric guitar is a direct descendent of Epiphones original line of flattops going back to the golden age of acoustic guitars in the 1930s. The smaller "parlor" or "blues box" style acoustic guitar is favored by blues players of all eras for its compressed, woody tonal quality, short scale, and comfortable weight which makes it ideal for fingerpicking or the bark of a bottle neck slide. Now featuring the Fishman Sonitone soundhole preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup, the EL-00 Studio Acoustic/Electric can now plug-in and be heard on any size stage with first class acoustic/electric sound.

The EL-00 Studio Acoustic/Electric from Epiphone carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty featuring Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service that guarantees your blues machine against defects in materials or workmanship. Contact your favorite Authorized Epiphone Dealer and check out a guitarists best friend, the Epiphone EL-00 Studio Acoustic/Electric.

I tried this out about a month ago but didn't purchase it because it sounded cheap and thin compared with my Yamaha LL6. But there was something about this instrument that stuck with me so I tried it again, still unplugged but with a heavier (1.0) VS .73 pick, and it sounded completely different and much, much better so I bought it. I still hadn't played it plugged in so I proceeded to do so, and I was blown away! For comparison purposes, I play it through my Yamaha THR5A acoustic amp. The bottom line is, go and buy one, it plays like an instrument twice the price!

This was the second Epiphone I tried out, and I can't say enough about its fit, finish and overall appearance. but when I played it acoustically the sound was thin with no mids or bass response. I didn't plug it in because I was looking for something that would mostly be played acoustically but with the ability to plug it in.

This is an awesome guitar. I changed the strings and adjusted the neck now it's super easy to play and sounds amazing. My dad steals it more than he plays his gibby.

This is an awesome guitar and a definite keeper. I replaced the strings (top=light, medium=bottom) and tusq graph tech pin and it sings. Gave my Gibson L-00 to my kid and was looking for a small body guitar replacement that isn't as costly. Just stumbled upon this one. Definitely recommend it to anybody beginner or seasoned player.

This guitar screams Robert Johnson! I bought it because I wanted a little acoustic for playing down and dirty old-school vintage blues, and she delivers in spades! Sounds great on it's own as well as plugged in. The pickup does change the tone, but the essence of the guitar is still there, and the clarity and response is second to none. I gave it a nine on quality because the setup wasn't that great....buzz on the 13th fret, and the saddle has no grooves (which can make the guitar feel tight), but these are minor, five minute fix ups that are expected even on guitars in the $2000 price range. Overall, this is the best value in acoustic guitars for the blues on the market, and I look forward to making it my number one acoustic work horse in my arsenal of gear until the day I die.

This guitar is beautiful with a great sound and very affordable perfect for small gigs and it makes playing easier with how small the guitar is, very nice guitar overall. The only downside is the guitar does not come with a case although you can find one but it's costly as the shape and size of the guitar makes it hard to fit into any case other than the one specifically made for it.
