Epiphone SST Studio Limited Edition Acoustic Electric Guitar Review

Go on… turn it up!

The steel-string version of the SST, this solidbody acoustic electric has computer-designed body cavities to ensure natural tone, while the Shadow preamp and Nanoflex pickup allow acoustic guitarists to play at high volume with no feedback.
An eminently pickable and sweet-sounding 6-string, the Epiphone SST Studio Limited Edition Acoustic Electric Guitar was built for stage and studio performance with no miking or feedback problems. A cutaway to the 19th fret gives you more neck access than any other acoustic. The piezo pickup has active electronics with tone control. Gold hardware, top binding, and a unique bridge design provide great looks.
