The DR-100 acoustic is Epiphone's best selling dreadnought, and with the range of features on offer at an unbelievably affordable price tag, it's easy to see why. The back and sides of the DR-100 are crafted from dense mahogany, which gives the already powerful dreadnought shape a huge mid to low-end rumble. The top is made from only select pieces of spruce, a naturally bright-sounding tonewood that compliments the mahogany perfectly. The combination of the two tonewoods means that the DR-100 has a characteristically well-rounded sound that is great for players of most genres from folk to hard rock.
Singer songwriters will appreciate the tonal versatility of the DR-100, which responds excellently when played gently - e.g. fingerstyle players - to accompany their vocals. Likewise, the guitar can easily project a huge sound thanks to the highly resonant spruce soundboard, so guitarists who're part of a band/ensemble can easily be heard alongside other instruments.
The supportive and solid mahogany neck is the perfect partner to the luxurious rosewood fingerboard. Home to twenty easily accessible frets, the neck and fingerboard combination offers articulate notes with lengthy sustain, and plenty of snap in the high end. The SlimTaper neck profile makes navigating the entire fretboard very comfortable and suited to both beginners and more practised players. Pearloid dot inlays guide your path along the fingerboard beautifully.
Strong and resilient rosewood has been given the task of absorbing the stresses that come with guitar bridge placement. It handles the job perfectly and provides the perfect anchor for your strings' connection to the supple spruce top. A black pickguard protects the lower bout of the body from unwanted pick scrapes and is adorned with the customary "Epiphone" E.
The iconic sloped-dovewing headstock is home to the die-cast premium tuners.
The DR-100 is also the only dreadnought that comes with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service.
