EPIPHONE RELEASES STARLING ACOUSTIC COLLECTION

Epiphone has released the Starling acoustic collection, perfect for beginning players to learn guitar and it is available at a price point that makes it possible for everyone to afford a quality Epiphone instrument.
The Starling's back and sides are layered mahogany, while the top is layered spruce for durability and good tone. The mahogany neck has a comfortable C-shaped profile, and the Indian laurel fretboard features 20 medium jumbo frets that make it easier to press the strings down with less effort, while the 24.75" scale length results in slightly less string tension and also reduces the distance the player’s fingers have to “stretch” to form chord shapes. The pickguard features a unique and distinctive Starling graphic.
