In Stock!

Pick an Affordable Blues Legend!

The Epiphone EL-00 Pro Acoustic-electric Guitar is descended from the legendary L-00 of the 1930s and '40s. Whether you think of it as a "parlor guitar" or a "blues box," the easy-playin' EL-00 Pro is perfect for recording and acoustic jams. In the studio, aim a small-diaphragm condenser mic at the 12th fret and you're gold. The diminutive size and svelte waist deliver a focused sound that sits great in your track, while its generous lower bout serves up surprisingly zoftig bottom. And with its classic Vintage Sunburst finish and onboard Fishmman electronics, you'll positively adore the Epiphone EL-00 Pro!

Fantastic guitar. Don't let size fool you.

This guitar is absolutely amazing for the price. A complete steal. It played great right out of the box thanks to Sweetwater's 55-point evaluation and setup. Extremely comfortable to play and sounds fantastic. I was a little reluctant to get this guitar at first because of the size. I was afraid it might not be loud enough for gigs. Firstly, this guitar is a bit larger than your typical 'parlor sized' guitar. It has a very deep lower bout and the shape is almost more of an orchestra model. Sounds great unplugged but plugged in...wow! Honestly, plugged in it sounds almost like a dreadnought. You are definitely not sacrificing volume with this little guy. I needed a 2nd acoustic for gigs and didn't want to spend a ton of money (my main guitar for live performance as well as recording is a 2014 Gibson J-45 Standard). This little guitar has a huge sound, trust me. The low end will blow you away, especially with the Fishman electronics. Could not be happier with this purchase and I really can't wait to play it live. Many thanks to my Sweetwater sales engineer Patrick Weaver.

Terrific Value

This is way too much guitar for the modest price. Solid tonewoods and sounds great. I got it primarily for a blues guitar and it really delivers. Great bass sounds and just a sweet axe all around. Arrived in perfect ready to play condition. weetwater staff knowledgeable and very helpful as I play Martins and this was my first Epi. It is easy on the eyes too and you will be amazed considering the price. I was tempted to leave the hangtags on just to remind me of the bargain this guitar is. Get one and you'll be very happy.

Great Guitar Very Good For Blues

A very good guitar easy to play nice & light and I have small hands no problem plays like butter! The finish on the guitar is flawless very nice sunburst. And when plugged in sounds great. If you are a bluesman like i am you would really love this axe go for it !

The 2 Year Test

I gave myself this guitar for my birthday exactly 2 years ago. I was tired of wrestling with dreadnoughts and wanted to check-out a parlor size to see if I liked the sound and comfort before buying an expensive one. Well... 2 years later I'm still very impressed: It's very comfortable, looks great, plays easily, sounds clear and vibrant, and best of all... plugged-in it sounds unbelievably rich. I play mine through a Fishman Loudbox Artist acoustic amp, which I also bought from Sweetwater. Parlor size guitars do not have the punch of a dreadnought, but when I plug-in, that changes! Also, there are 2 features that separate this one from other parlor guitars: 1) Most parlors now have a 1.75" nut width which I do not like. The 00 Pro has a 1&11/16" nut which is perfect for me. 2) Many parlors have very light bracing for fingerpicking but the sound breaks up easily when strummed with much zest. The 00 Pro tone remains intact when strummed. AND... Ryan Murphy, my sales rep, continually goes the distance to make sure I'm satisfied and taken care of! Even when I'm not spending thousands of dollars, he makes me feel that appreciated. Thank you, Ryan! The biggest mystery is "Why would anyone buy their new axe anywhere else besides Sweetwater? They take the risk out of buying sight unseen by offering their no questions asked return policy (as if their prices weren't enough already)! PS: I don't feel the need to buy an expensive parlor guitar any longer! The EL00 Pro keeps me grinning while I'm picking!
