Like its vintage Gibson ancestors, the Epiphone L-00 features a Solid Sitka Spruce top that will improve in tone as it ages. The more you play it, the better it will sound. The smaller body (15.5" wide at lower bout) and rosewood bridge also influence the EL-00’s distinctive voice which is more focused than a dreadnought. The solid mahogany neck is set with a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint using premium Titebond™ glue. The mahogany neck and body, combined with the Solid Spruce top, make for the perfect combination of tone, warmth and brilliance with much a larger volume than you would expect from a smaller guitar.
