i have the 6 string version of your guitar. My dad bought it in the 70s and its amazing, i dont really have any info, i just figured id say something cause i cant seem to find anyone who has a PR-715 model.

: ~ I just bought an Epiphone PR-715ACR (six string) at a flea market. I can't find hardly anything online about this guitar. Seems to be a well built instrument, straight neck, action is low but not too low, no fret buzz, intonation is great, plays as well as my Fender Highway 1 Strat. It is in great condition - no flaws, shiny finish, only minor scratches, has a case.

My guess is this is a lower end Epiphone from the mid 80's. I'm just looking for information about the AC-715ACR (6 string).

i designed this guitar, and it's really nice to hear after all these years that it's out there and being played. i was director of marketing for gibson during the late 70's early 80's, and this guitar was part of an entire re-do of the epiphone line.

i enjoyed the hell out of doing the whole line . . . wish i had a few - lucky you!

thanks

To the gentleman who said he designed this guitar: What woods are used for the back and sides of this guitar?

I, too, have a 6 string PR 715 I just picked up. It's an '86 model. The headstock has inlaid "Epiphone by Gibson", and it looks like abalone? This thing is flawless and plays surprisingly well. My inner tag says it was made in Korea, not Japan, like some. I wish I could get more info on this little guitar.

Re: epiphone 12 string mod.# PR-715-12 -ASB

I have a one of these twelve strings that I am looking to sell. Is there anyone interested? If so call me at 2696996913. I grew up in Kalamazoo and I am now in Phoenix. These guitars are made with quality.

Re: epiphone 12 string mod.# PR-715-12 -ASB

Seems we all want to know the same thing, "When was my PR-715-12-ASB made?" Mine is in immaculate shape with Serial# 04729 made in Japan.

Re: epiphone 12 string mod.# PR-715-12 -ASB

I have the same 12 string. It sounds great! I recently put some Peavy strings on it. I am the oringal owner and purchased the guitar in the early 80's. It used to break the high G string but this new set has lasted a couple of months.

Re: epiphone 12 string mod.# PR-715-12 -ASB

:An amazing guitar with amazing sound. Definately enough to fill any hall with sweet sound. I was given this instrument and would appreciate any info abt it. It has a paper label inside with serial #12403, made in Kalamazoo, Mich. Can anyone tell me the date of manufacture, value, etc.?
