The easy-to-afford dreadnought Epiphone PR-150 is the perfect instrument to get started on. It has classic looks, great tone, and is made to be road tough. Like all worthy acoustic guitars, it begins and ends with tonewoods, and the PR-150 Epiphone chose a select spruce top and mahogany body for a classic sound that's balanced, clear, and will only get better with age and lots of playing. The rosewood bridge and synthetic bone saddle are a perfect match for the resonant profile of the select spruce top. The vintage-style soundhole is supported by a tortoiseshell-style pickguard with the '60s era "E" logo. The SlipTaper 25.5" scale mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, a 12" radius, a 1.68" nut, premium die-cast 14:1 tuners, and the classic '60s era Sloped Dovewing headstock. The Epiphone's all-nickel hardware will last as long as you play the guitar and the PR-150 comes in two color finishes, Natural (NA) and Vintage Sunburst (VS). Choose the finish you want in the drop down menu above.

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.

The gutitar is fine; however, Guitar Center's online business is abyssmal. Here's a short history of my issues with them: 12/16-ordered guitar online. Felt good about the transaction. I was told that I would get an email later that day or early the next about tracking information. 12/17-As of early afternoon, no email was received. Called them to find out that the operator entered my email wrong. Was told that I would get an email. Received email when I got back from lunch to discover that the wrong color was ordered. Called them again. Operator had me hold. Came back online line to tell me nothing was resolved yet. I asked him to call or email me. He acted like he wanted to get it resolved while I held. He came back on the line a few minutes later to tell me that it would take a little longer and said he'd call me back in a few minutes. Four and half hours later, I still hadn't received a call. I called them. Their computer system indicated that communication with the buyer ended due to caller disconnect. Called them back. Was told that I would have to pay for another guitar in order to received it by Christmas. I reluctantly did it. Was told that the first order was cancelled and I would get my money credited back for the first purchase with a day or two. Many, many, many calls over the next week.....was told multiple stories about the cancelled initial purchase, how long it would take to get my money back, etc. I was thoroughly disgusted with their online service. I will not due business with them online again.

All around great guitar for the dollar. Don't let the prince fool you. Sounds great and is a pleasure to play.
I went to the North Attleboro , Mass. store today with $200 bucks in my wallet looking to buy a brand new Acoustic to add to my arsenal. I had my eyes on a fender FA-135CE but, when I tried that out, I couldn't believe how tinny it sounded so scratch that. Then I went to go check the Fender FA-100 which I discovered , was not even worth the darn time. I'm by nature, a Fender guy , but a sucker for a sunburst model also, so when I saw the Epiphone PR-150 in Sunburst hanging on the wall, something inside of me told me to give it a shot . I tried it out and couldn't believe just how great it sounded . So I bought it along with some strings and to top it off, it was for sale which was even better. I got it home and put some Lemon oil on the fret board and restrung it with some D'Addarios and this folks, is a keeper. This is a guitar for either a beginner or the advanced player contrary to what the tone snobs say.
Excellent beginner guitar, but the string that come on this guitar do it no justice. Once I replaced the stock strings with some "Elixir Polyweb Extra light .010 - .047 strings", what a huge improvement in sound. I was also pleasantly surprised that the guitar stays in tune very well after stretching the strings. Yes, I will admit the tuners could be of better quality, but they do get the job done. The neck on this guitar is also very easy to play once a proper setup has been done. No this guitar is not going to sound like a Martin or Taylor, but for the right purpose this guitar definitely has it's place.
Been playing for a number of years and have a few pricey guitars at the house. The real trick is finding one that sounds good for just a little bit of money! Anyone can buy a $3000 Martin and get a great guitar - finding a $140 guitar that sounds great is stunning! I bought this in Akron on sale and have had it a month or so. Plays great, stays in tune, looks good. What else can you say? Nice guitar if it costs $400 - great guitar for $139..
I bought this guitar for my son's 11th birthday. I also bought this same guitar from Guitar Center around 20 years ago and was amazed back then at how well this guitar was built for the price it sells for. I have played a few other acoustic guitars that were in the $300.00 range that did not play this well. With my sons, it also did not disappoint. Everything about this guitar says it should be a more expensive guitar. The people at Epiphone have really put out a great product that has had very little change to it in 20 years but the reason why is it has not needed any change. If you are a beginner to someone who has been playing for years and need an inexpensive guitar that is quality built, this is the guitar for you.
I bought this guitar as a beater to play around the fire. Nice right out of the box. The fretboard is very rough and the frets are a little sharp. After dressing the frets, conditioning the fretboard and new strings, she plays great. It's so nice I can't bring myself to abuse it as originally planned. Now I have to get a second one to knock around.
When I was looking for a cheap guitar, I picked this one and loved the sound. However, when I took my first lesson i could not play some notes due to the high action on this guitar. I sent it out to a luthier to see if he cloud lower the action but he was unsuccessful. I would not recommend it for someone that is just starting out. If you are looking for a good beginner guitar, you are better off getting a Taylor or a Martin for a couple hundred more because they have a lower action on them witch in turn makes them an easier guitar to play. Bottom Line: Its an okay guitar, but could use a lower action to be a "beginner guitar"
guitar had fret buzz on the G string especially high up. returned it. too bad, it looked great. but check the strings all the way up to make sure it works.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR NICKEL PLATED TUNERS NICE FINISH, AND THE SOUND OH SO BEAUTIFUL I GIVE THIS GUITAR A (5) STAR RATING !!!!!!!!!
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.
