John...that Epi L-00 is a great little box if you can play the small nut and spacing.    If it was 1.72 and 2 1/4 I'd own one!   The price point is a bargain!

Epiphone EL-00 pro ... it was picking up one of these that got me interested in a smaller body Parlour size guitar ... great wee guitar and well enough finished off for an amazing price too.... and the Bonus that it's fitted with a P/up too !.

I didn't work for me as the fretboard would seem to come off an electric model and was way too narrow (43mm) and a very flat "C" Shape .. but if that suits your style or your hands ..great !!

Its also a 14 frets to the body guitar ( I was looking for a 12 fret job ) and ended up with the Tanglewood TW40PAN .... No electrics though :-(

 

As this review suggests .."Its a bargain" ... but I would say you have to play it 1st !! .....Some Epiphones sound pretty good ..some sadly don't !!

Does anyone have any opinions on the Epihone EL-00 Pro?  I bought one online, and I'm loving it...I know it's supposed to be a cheap guitar, but man...IMHO...this thing is great!

The Rnj models I have are very well put together.  Other than the different b/s wood(flame maple vs. African Mahogany) they are made as follows...Grade AA Canadian Sitka tops> rosewood fret board and straight bridge>Binding on body and neck(the 25 has 3 ply body and the 26 has single ply)>3 ply rosette>hand rubbed nitro finish> 1/4 scalloped Sitka X bracing>dove tail joint>Greg Rich m.o.p. markers>Grover 3 on a strap closed V138N tuning heads>bone nut and compensated saddle>ivoroid pins>comes with Ej-16's.  That'll give you an idea of what RK put out for a very short time.  I'm very fortunate to have found both in good shape. ...J.d.

I am a fan of the RK RNJ-Lucas series.  Just picked up the last of a couple "old, new stock" Rnj-26 Limited Blk (Sitka/hog) to go with my Rnj-25(Sitka/maple). Both are short scale, out of production models and quite a value for the 00 deep body fan.  [URL=http://s1243.photobucket.com/user/vacamartin/media/image2.jpeg.html][IMG]http://i1243.photobucket.com/albums/gg545/vacamartin/image2.jpeg[/IMG][/URL]  [URL=http://s1243.photobucket.com/user/vacamartin/media/DSC00458-1.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1243.photobucket.com/albums/gg545/vacamartin/DSC00458-1.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

I play a Wechter TO 8418.  It's one of the best guitars I have ever owned.  It's as loud as a train, but it's awesome to play it fingerstyle.  I can't put it down.

Strummer - pretty guitar!  Play her in good health... :-)

Robert - another Guild for sale soon?  ;-)
