The 11 time Grammy winner and Billboard Hall of Fame member Joan Sebastian unites with Epiphone to create the Epiphone Joan Sebastian Sonador Acoustic Electric Guitar. The Sonador offers great acoustic power and projection producing big sound with clear acoustics, and is equally impressive for powerful strumming or delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between. Its beautiful rounded cut-away design and distinctive mother-of-pearl inlays featuring the Cross (Faith), the Heart (Love) and the Horseshoe (Luck), give this guitar a distinctive look that is truly representative of Joan Sebastian.

With a body shape inspired by Gibson's famous J-185, the Epiphone Joan Sebastian Sonador Acoustic Electric Guitar features a Solid Sitka Spruce top with hand-scalloped, lightweight bracing that only improves with age. A solid Mahogany neck is hand-fitted to its Mahogany body using a traditional dovetail neck joint and Titebond glue providing maximum surface contact and strength. Combined, the result is a guitar with deep rich lows and shimmering highs with just the right amount of mid-range. Top it all off with an elegant solid Rosewood bridge with mother-of-pearl horseshoe inlays and you've got a one-of-a-kind instrument.
When you're ready to perform live, so is the Sonador! Powered by an AT-3000 preamp, you have a Master Volume control as well as both High and Low EQ controls with +/-12dB of range right at your fingertips. Capturing body and string sound, the preamp is connected to a piezo element pickup mounted under its compensated saddle.
The Epiphone Joan Sebastian Sonador Acoustic Electric Guitar neck features Epiphone's famous SlimTaper profile. This D-shaped neck is slim enough to give you the speed you want but thick enough provide the stability and playing comfort you need. At 1.725 inches, the nut width and therefore the string spacing is just slightly wider than your typical acoustic guitar. This not only makes it easy to finger notes more cleanly, it also makes it perfect for finger-style picking.
