Ibanez Euphoria EP5 - Pics & Video

Hi Guys,

I purchased this last week and thought I might share it on here considering its a Vai Model.
Its the new EP5 (the cheaper version of the new EP10).
The black finish actually has a metallic spark through it which you can see in some of the pics.

I am very much an electric guitar player so I saved the money and bought an EP5. Anyway its a great guitar.

The you tube video is here

Re: Ibanez Euphoria EP5 - Pics & Video

As a very thin bodied acoustic it is a little tinny, BUT I like that - as mr Vai said himself, this guitar is to sit on top of the mix (well I guess he was talking about the EP10). I can't really compare it to much as I don't have any top of the line acoustics.

I will do a proper recording soon and youtube the clip. Nice to have a tuner in the guitar, I'm not too sure on what the phase button does. I can hear a change and I know it has something to do with feedback but someone might have to explain it to me.

Also - I might lighten the sting gauge on it, because its nice to play some lead acoustic solos on this type of guitar.

That's a beauty! I'm glad you posted that, as I've been considering one.

Yeah before I bought one I couldn't find anyone who had one. If you need to know anything specific let me know.

The EP7 and EP9 acoustics were in that section, too. I know cuz I started at least one thread. No biggie either way.

Re: Ibanez Euphoria EP5 - Pics & Video

now that you have had it a while......can you comment some more on its play-ability?

Can the action be set up low like an electric (or close to it)?
are the frets jumbo/wide? or narrow/tall?
is it comparable to any other acoustics out there to reference it against?

I just bought one online as an impulse buy, and couldnt find much info online at all on this guitar....so i just bought it anyways, awaiting for it to arrive.
