Subject: RE: Info/Opinions RE: Gibson/Epiphone Guitars
I have a Epiphone PR200 with a Nitro-satin finish. I think it is a great sounding guitar. I recently bought a new guitar. Not because of the sound; but because I didn't like the narrow fingerboard and the dreadnaught shape. My new guitar is small-bodied (the size of a classical guitar--I guess the equivalent of a 00 in size and shape) with a few mm more on the fingerboard width.

So, I don't play the Epiphone much anymore; but, being my first guitar, I don't have the heart to get rid of it. I keep it around to lend to friends who travel by public transport and don't want to lug around their own guitar when they visit.
