Part of a line of flattops that go all the way back to the 1930s, the Epiphone EL-00 Pro Electro Acoustic Guitar sports the blues player’s favourite body shape, the parlour. With its short scale, low weight and woody tone this guitar is perfect for fingerpickers or for using with a bottleneck slide, while the Fishman Sonitone soundhole preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup ensure you’re heard no matter where you play.
With the combination of a solid spruce top and select mahogany back & sides, the smaller body (15.5" wide at lower bout) of the Epiphone EL-00 PRO Guitar produces a larger sound than you would expect. From the combined woods you can expect a nice tone with a good mix of warmth and brilliance. The whole package is beautifully finished with a 3-ply black and white binding at the top, a single-ply white binding at the back, and a tortoise shell style pickguard with the vintage metal "E" atop the body’s vintage sunburst finish.
Hand-fitted with a dovetail joint, using premium Titebond glue, the 24.75" scale neck of the Epiphone EL-00 Pro Electro Acoustic has been crafted using select mahogany and has been carved to a SlimTaper "D" profile. Topping this is a 19-fret, 12" radius rosewood fingerboard, adorned with pearloid dot inlays and it features a single-ply black binding. At one end of the fingerboard lies a 1.68" nut, while at the other is a rosewood bridge with a compensated imitation bone saddle. The guitar’s headstock is outfitted with a set of Grover 14:1 machine heads with mini-buttons.
You’ll find a Fishman Sonicore pickup underneath the Epiphone EL-00 Pro Electro Acoustic Guitar’s saddle, while the Fishman Sonitone preamp is mounted discreetly in the soundhole. This setup gives you easy access to the preamp’s Master Volume and Tone rotary controls without getting in the way or taking away from the aesthetics of the guitar.
