The DR-100 acoustic is Epiphone's best selling dreadnought, and with a solid tonewood combination, excellent hardware and powerful tone at an affordable price tag, it's easy to see why. Dense mahogany has been used to craft the back and sides of the DR-100. This creates a resounding low-end rumble and forms the basis of the dreadnought's formidable power. 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 across a wide range of musical genres from folk to hard rock.
The DR-100 offers a delicate and responsive tonal palette, which means that it reacts perfectly whether played gently - e.g. fingerstyle players - or strummed hard. Therefore, if you're a solo performer who needs and accompanying guitar whilst you're singing, a solo instrumentalist or play as part of a band or ensemble, the DR-100 is incredibly adaptable.
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.
This model is completed in a gorgeous vintage sunburst finish, giving it a sumptuous and eye-catching appeal. 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.
