The Epiphone PR-150 is a great guitar for beginners. I would know that because I am a beginner and I've found it much easier than most other guitars I've used. It neck is much thinner so it works well for people with small hands (like girls). I have two older brother's who are much more professional with guitars that loved the guitar. The sound and quality of this guitar is great. I'm really that I went out and bought this guitar. So what I'm really trying to say is that I think it would be a great idea to try this guitar out and see how good it is yourself.

I played the guitar in the store and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it played and how good it sounded for the price. So I bought it and took it home. Hung it on the wall next to 7 other guitars, a few of them in the 2k price range. Within 2 months the high E and B string began bottoming out between the 10th and 13th fret. I carefully filed the frets down to adjust. After 2 more months all 6 strings bottom out between the 10th and the 14th fret. I adjusted the truss rod. Now strings are way too high at the 5th fret but still bottom out when played at the 10th through the 14th fret. The guitar neck has warped into a veritable roller coaster where the action is bottoming out at the 12th and way too high above and below the 12th fret. It is now a useless guitar. Some have had hood results. I suspect the wood on my neck is too soft.

    Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

    Chinese guitars vary greatly in quality, even in the same model. A month ago I played one that was just out of the box and it was awful, high action, terrible intonation. The one I bought was hanging from the rack, I played it for a while in the noise of the store and determined that it was probably okay. I put light gauge Ernie Ball 80/20 Bronze strings on it, adjusted the truss rod over two days (adjust 1/4 turn, let it sit a half hour, check and repeat until you have it where you want it) to bring the intonation and string height in at the 12th fret. Epiphone specs are Treble E 5/64 in., Bass E 7/64 in. from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the string. The sticker says it was set-up by Epiphone, inspector 10, but if it was No. 10 was having a bad day. I like it a lot. My other guitars are a Gibson Country Western circa 1960's, a Martin D-15M and a Moserite Ventures Mark V.

      Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

      I've been an Epiphone guy for years, normally they are constructed very well and have a great sound. This guitar overall has a great sound, plays nice and the sunburst finish is great. My issue was I bought one and the neck was warped up near the 13th fret. I returned it and they replaced it. Brought it home and same issue in the same place. Not sure if it was a bad group of guitars or QC slipped. I recommend taking the guitar out of the box at the store and playing it. Wound up picking up a Mitchell instead.

              Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

              I bought this guitar to leave at work so I can practice on breaks/lunch. As such, I didn't want to pay too much for it, but I still wanted something that sounded good and was fun to play. This guitar is perfect for that. The sunburst finish make is look awesome too. So much, actually, that I am worried that someone will steal it since it looks like a much more expensive guitar! This is my first Epiphone and I bought this brand because they are a part of the Gibson company. Excellent sounding guitar! Now for the bad. The lack of coated strings makes my fingers turn green. But a new set of strings will easily fix that. The neck only required a slight adjustment to prevent buzzing...very easy to do with the included allen wrench. Great guitar for the money!

                Comments about Epiphone PR-150 Acoustic Guitar:

                Don't let the term "beginner guitar" steer you away. I've been playing for over 40 years and have never enjoyed owning and playing a guitar as much as I have this one. I bought it with the sunburst finish, as I have never owned one like that, and this is what initially caught my eye.

                I came home inspired one day to find my trusty old acoustic Fender had a lifting bridge, so I needed a replacement. Having heard an ad about a recent GC sale, I popped on over to see if I could try out several different models, before I found myself settling on this one.
                I had never really heard of the brand before, but when I went home to research it and found who the company was owned by and what bands used Epiphone. I lucked out with an amazing deal at GC, fitting my budget for a quick replacement. And I am so glad I did.

                This guitar has inspired me to play for hours on end, and I honestly have hardly put it down since I bought it in March. I chose to protect it with an Epiphone Case (the eDread) and not only play it every day, but like to look over at how nice it looks in the room, in or out of the case. It has rekindled my old passion for playing, and I am looking forward to replacing my vintage electric with an Epiphone, as well.
                Through research, I have found that the "PR" series was eventually replaced by the "DR" series, so the Truss Bar cover has the latter initials on it. I have also found that this is virtually the same guitar as the DR-100.

                After weeks of playing, the guitar stays in tune very well. I often play along with videos and have even taken some new virtual lessons and haven't had to tune up again for a couple of weeks. For the price, particularly during a sale season, you really can't go wrong with this as your first, second, or even third guitar. Love it.
