Info on Epiphone PR-350-S
Posted 22 February 2010 - 06:20 PM
I have an Epiphone PR-350S (with the Epiphone by Gibson headstock) that I've owned since 1987. I was wondering what the general opinion on this particular guitar is and how did they rate versus their other models at the time?

Hi T'Hawk Dean,
FWIW the S for my guitar stands for Solid. It has a solid spruce top and laminate mahogany sides and back. According to Acoustic Guitars: The Illustrated Encyclopedia by Dave Hunter the mid 80's (mine is from 1987) were a low point in quality for Epi Acoustics and that all but their best models had laminate tops. As far as I know the PR-350S is at best a mid level guitar...but I'm not familiar with their lineup from that time. I seem to have lucked out perhaps though as I have not had any issues with quality, and after 20+ years it sounds better than ever. Is there anyone out there who is familiar with the mid 80's Epi acoustics?
