Epiphone guitars are no longer thought to be cheap Gibson knockoffs. With each passing day, this brand develops its own reputation, which is growing increasingly comparable to Gibson’s. Epiphone’s acoustic guitars were, for a long time, the company’s most popular product. This is especially true for those on a tight budget. This tradition continues with the Epiphone DR-100, which is one of the greatest budget guitars available. Select Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides and Rosewood fingerboard and bridge characterize the DR-100.

    This is without a doubt one of the best-sounding guitars in this price range (about $100). It sounds very similar to any of the solid-wood Epiphone Masterbilt guitars, which are also a great bargain because they sound exactly like their Gibson counterparts (e.g. the AJ) — which sound somewhere between a Martin and a Taylor — not too dark/muddy like some Martins can get, and not too harsh/bright like most Taylors. It’s really great.

    When you do full strum, you have amazing projection/volume, as well as crisp articulation and voice at any volume. I kept thinking to myself, “How are they going to earn any money from this?” Almost every “beginning” or “cheap” guitar I’ve played has a shallow, “boxy” tone (like the sound is coming from a small cardboard box). Any cheap Yamaha, Takamine, Washburn, or whatever does it. However, in terms of sound quality and voice, the DR-100 (also known as the PR-100 if marketed by Guitar Center/Friend) Musicians is light years ahead of the competition. This seems like a $500-800 guitar to me. Whether you’re an experienced player looking for a backup guitar (which is why I bought mine— I wanted a laminate guitar that I didn’t have to worry about and could just leave out and play whenever I was at the office or take with me outside), or a beginner, this is the perfect guitar and the best bang for your buck at $100 plus it’s an Epiphone with a lifetime guarantee, not some unknown brand.

    After more than 30 years of fantasizing about playing guitar, I decided it was time to take action. As a complete novice, I had to depend on Amazon reviews to select a reasonably priced entry-level guitar. My selection arrived in the mail today, and I couldn’t be happier. This guitar is really beautiful and sounds fantastic (at least, to my untrained ears). I’ve already spent a few of hours playing my first two chords using a YouTube video (Andy Guitar is amazing!) and I adore everything about it, even the nagging discomfort in my fingers. I only unpacked this instrument a few hours ago, and it already holds far more significance for me than I could have imagined.

    It’s difficult for me to put into words how I feel. For the past 27 years, I’ve been playing guitar. I have a sizable acoustic, electric, and banjo collection. Really, all I wanted was a guitar to play around with. I wanted something I could take to the park, to work, and to anyone who wanted to give it a go. The guitar is one of my favorite instruments.

    As a result, at this price, it would be ideal. Now that I have it, I can’t believe I acquired it for such a low price. It looks amazing, and the finish quality is on par with my previous guitars, which I appear to have overpaid for. It has a pleasant feel to it in your palms. The frets and the neck of the guitar are beautiful. The sound was really incredible. Without a doubt, it sounds just as good, if not better, than the £600 Fender acoustic guitar I bought.

    I can’t say enough good things about this product. If someone is just getting started with guitar, they will not only have a guitar that looks better than anything else at this price, but it will also sound so excellent that they will still be playing it in 20 years.
