Epiphone PR-150

Gearank High Notes

The Epiphone PR-150 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitars in the Under $200 price category from January 2018 until April 2018 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.

In January 2022 we announced the results of our annual analysis of acoustic guitar brands - Epiphone ranked 10th.


The Epiphone PR-150 is a great example of the combination of affordability and quality brought on as a result of automation. The PR-150 is a reproduction of the classic Gibson spruce/mahogany tone, making it a great option for guitarists who want that classic sound but can’t spring for a genuine Gibson.

Another key selling point of this guitar, and something that doesn’t get mentioned enough about Epiphone instruments, is that it’s very durable. The guitars are built to withstand a lot of abuse, making them a great choice for musicians who don’t yet know how to properly care for an acoustic guitar. Epiphone instruments are also relatively low maintenance, even when compared to other guitars in this price tier.
