The Epiphone L-00 Studio pays tribute to the the fabled Gibson parlour guitar — with the modern addition of Fishman electronics!
This guitar is the successor of Epiphone's original series of flat-tops. These can be traced back as far as the 1930s! The smaller, parlour style body found here has been popular with blues players of all ages — thanks to its light build, focused woody tone and shorter 24.75" scale length. This all contributes to an instrument which is perfect for fingerpicking and slide playing.
The back and sides are formed from Mahogany, while a solid Spruce top provides the top layer. This wood will actually improve in tone while it ages, so this could be an instrument that you return to for many years to come! This combination of woods leads to a big, warm sound; it's far larger than you'd imagine from such a small instrument.
A Fishman Sonitone preamp and Sonicore under-saddle pickup system complete proceedings. When plugged in, your guitar's natural voice will be authentically amplified through a PA system or dedicated acoustic amplifier. Integrated controls even mean that you can dial-in your preferred sound using tone and volume settings.
