Sweet acoustic sound for plugged-in playing.
The Epiphone SST Studio is a steel-string acoustic-electric guitar that combines electric and acoustic technology with state-of-the-art construction techniques. This is a guitar that has virtually nothing in common with anything else on the market. In fact, the Epiphone SST guitar doesn't even have a sound hole. It's easy to get sidetracked by the stunning visuals of the new SST Studio Guitar”from the ebony finish to the hourglass curves”this is one of the best-looking guitars Epiphone has ever released.
Unlike traditional acoustic guitars that feature hollow bodies that are susceptible to feedback, the Epiphone SST combines a solid mahogany body with computer-designed sound chambers, the active SST Studio preamp and a NanoFlex pickup designed in cooperation with Shadow Germany. Not a piezo, the unique flexible sensing material in the pickup features integrated active electronics and picks up not only string vibration but also top and body vibrations without the harshness of piezos. The result is a guitar that delivers natural acoustic tone in any situation and at any volume with the only squeals coming from the front row of the moshpit. The Epiphone SST Studio Guitar is not just capable of mind-blowing acoustic tone at high volumes without feedback. The SST Studio preamp features a built-in headphone amp that allows you to plug ordinary headphones into the 1/4" output jack for late-night hotel room inspiration.
The Epiphone SST Studio is equipped with a SlimTaper mahogany neck, a smooth 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, and acoustic steel strings. Once you've picked the SST Studio guitar up, you'll never put it down. Like all Epiphones, the hardware is built with working musicians in mind and includes premium gold Grover machine heads for rock-solid tuning accuracy and stability and a solid rosewood reverse-belly bridge with compensated saddle. The Epiphone SST Studio is the complete acoustic-electric guitar package at the right price.

Comments about Epiphone SST Studio Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I have owned the epiphone sst for about eight months, now. This guitar is awesome!!! I've been playing for(42) years. I had looked for the tone and sound of this instrument for many years. Now that I have it... I'll never part with it. It look great, plays wonderfully, and has great sustain. I would reccomned the guitar to anyone who has ever had feedback problems. I actually tried to make the guitar feedback... and couldn't! I recommend this product.
