From Our Research Team:
The Blues Legend Is BackHere's a true Blues legend! The EL-00 Parlor Acoustic from Epiphone brings back that famous L-00 body shape from the 1930s and 1940s, the one so many players have fallen in love with its shorter scale, super-comfortable size, and undeniably huge tone. Although the size was discontinued in 1945, it continued to gain superstardom status. And here, with the Epiphone EL-00 Parlor Acoustic, you can be a part of a new generation of L-00 players. This beauty is an astounding value. You get an solid spruce top and a mahogany body, a proven combination for rich tone. Factor in other touches, including the deluxe pickguard with the metal "E" logo and you've got a guitar that looks - and sounds - amazing. You just can't go wrong with the Epiphone EL-00.

The workmanship is pretty good for the price point and the sound really surprised me.
The smaller size is a plus for those who can't get comfy with a drednaught.

Just What I Wanted
by Kevin from TucsonI play a 60's era Epiphone Cortez and wanted something inexpensive for traveling. Though the tone isn't as seasoned or complex as the Cortez, I like everything about the EL-00. Very comfortable neck,... read more [+] especially for short hands, light weight, and plenty loud enough for a jam session. I ordered it with the TUSQ nut, but found the tone really improved when I installed a bone saddle and switched to medium-light strings. The sunburst is beautifully done, and overall it looks and feels like a much more expensive guitar. Just a great, everyday player. close [-]
