Your general opinion of this product.
I wanted a smaller body acoustic guitar and from having the Jumbo EJ200 I thought this one would be very nice, and I was right. I was so impressed with the finish and the strings sound great, stays in tune, lightweight, well I ordered a second one. It is also very loud for it's size and also has Fishman electronics. A great value packed guitar.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Yes I would consider this guitar very well made. I have never had trouble with any of my 8 Epiphones.
Well made and dependable equals a real winner.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The action could be a little lower for me, coming off an electric, but with the way it sounds out of the box. I am leaving everthing alone.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
It has a loud sparking sound. Thats what happens when the strings are matched to the body just right. I plan on restring the EL-OO-PRO with the same strings, when the time comes, When a string pops on me, thats when I change the strings.
How was the action out of the box?
It was good, very nice.
I could make it easier, but action is very snappy.
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
Epiphones are very tough guitars. My friend has an Epiphone acoustic and I know sometimes he leaves it in the trunk of his car. That's in Louisiana and it gets real hot in the summer time.
