Features: What it does for you:
Solid Englemann spruce top Premium tonewood with warm, powerful projection
Mahogany back and sides Dry and airy tone; clear, present midrange

Fishman Acoustic Matrix pickup Natural, powerful sound when you need to plug in
The Ibanez Steve Vai EP10 Euphoria acoustic-electric guitar is a shred-able axe with heart-stealing looks. A slightly thinner neck and close action make this guitar's mahogany neck comfortable to hold and a breeze to play. The EP10's 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, decked out with a beautiful gold-colored Tree of Life inlay, is a complete treat to play across. A solid Engelmann-spruce-topped body with a mahogany back and sides provides a dark resonance and alluring sustain. If you want an acoustic guitar with stunning looks, attractive tones, and ultimate playability, then the Steve Vai EP10 Euphoria is your new must-have axe.

A Beauty to Behold

Just one look at this baby and your heart will be taken. From its shimmering gold Grover tuners to its Engelmann spruce top, this guitar was made to be looked at just as much as it was made to be played. Your mahogany neck's rosewood fretboard also sports a beautiful gold-colored "Tree of Life" inlay in signature Steve Vai style.

Fishman Acoustic Matrix Pickup and Aura IC Preamp

Steve Vai describes his sought-after Euphoria sound as a "bright, crisp tone that allows it to sit on top of the mix." Your EP10 Euphoria delivers on this promise with its Fishman Acoustic Matrix pickup. This baby captures your EP10 Euphoria's rich resonance, while the Fishman Aura IC preamp uses Fishman's Aura Acoustic Imaging Technology to give your axe a well-defined pro-studio color. This preamp lets you emulate different microphones' specific sounds -- with Steve Vai's personal preferences included.

Speedy Mahogany Neck

Acoustic guitars aren't normally known for being shred-worthy instruments. This is where your EP10 Euphoria stands out in the crowd. The close action on this axe's mahogany neck make speedy runs play with ultimate ease across your 24 jumbo frets. A deeper cutaway allows you easier access to those higher frets, and a scale length of 25.3" gives your strings a brighter bite and a tighter feel.

Thinline Body with Solid Engelmann and Mahogany Tonewoods

Your EP10 Euphoria comes in a Thinline EP body shape. This thinner cut gives your EP10 a brighter sound that cuts through nicely. Also, since the mahogany back and sides are a little bit shallower, this baby is lightweight and fits comfortably, allowing you more freedom to move around when you play.

Features:

- Solid Engelmann spruce top
- Mahogany back and sides
- Thinline EP body shape
- Rosewood fretboard of 24 frets
- Gold Grover tuners
- Fishman acoustic Matrix pickup and Fishman Aura IC preamp with Steve Vai original pre-set sound
- 25.3" scale for tighter feel and brighter sound
- Deeper cutaway for easier higher fret access
- Beautiful gold colored Tree of Life inlay on fretboard

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful guitar, fun to play (plugged-in!)."
Sound: This is my first thinline acoustic. I knew going in not to expect much in the way of unplugged sounds, and buyers should be aware: This does not have a strong unplugged sound. That being said, it's certainly better than I thought it would be. Certainly good enough for practicing. Plugged in is what this guitar is all about. It's a strong sound, and this is a solid pre-amp/pickup combo. The options are sparse as there's only a volume and tone knob, and then 4 Aura presets. To be honest, the differences between the 4 presets are so subtle it's almost not worth it. You get more variance with tone knob adjustments. Still, it's a great, strong sound. Feature: It comes with the standard stuff: Extra saddle, shim, truss wrench, manual. What I was disappointed in is that it does not come with a case. If you look on Ibanez's Japanese site, it mentions a case. If you buy the guitar overseas, it comes with a case. In the US? No case included, and good luck finding one! I had to get my local shop to special order it from Ibanez for me, but only after the guys on Ibanez's support forum convinced me that it even existed. The matching case for this guitar is the EP100C. You won't find it listed anywhere, so have your dealer contact their Ibanez rep directly. Ease of Use: The action was really high for me on this guitar. On such a "special" instrument I'd have expected a really good setup, but the truss wasn't straight and had to be adjusted. The saddle also had to be shaved, after which the sound wasn't as strong (the bottom of that saddle has to be COMPLETELY SMOOTH!) so I had to put the included shim back in. The intonation is a bit off on the low E. I really like the neck, though. Very playable. Quality: Again, the setup could have been better. But the biggest surprise for me was the sparkles. Yes, sparkles. You see, all the pictures of this guitar online just show a black guitar. The keen-eyed will notice, however, that the product description says "Black Pearl". Which means there are very subtle sparklies cooked into the paint. The guitar has glitter in it! Like I said, it's subtle, but I've yet to take it out under the lights. The inlay on the neck is beautiful, but the binding is what really makes this thing gorgeous, in my opinion. I could probably do without the VAI logo around the soundhole, but it doesn't stand out much. The tuners, by the way, may be the best I've ever had on an acoustic. Value: Because of Zzounds and their great price-matching, this is a fantastic value. Manufacturer Support: Ibanez support (usually working through the guys on the forum) have always been great, and extremely helpful. Possibly the best part of any Ibanez guitar. The Wow Factor: Beautiful, gorgeous, awesome. While possibly "over the top" for some, I think this is a gorgeous guitar, particularly when I put more gold-colored strings on it which match the inlay and binding. Overall: Pros: Beautiful look, beautiful plugged-in sound, even an acceptable unplugged sound. Cons: It should have come with a case! The Aura presets are almost subtle enough to me superfluous. It definitely needs a setup out of the box. The "glitter" should be more evident in online pics and descriptions.

"Not All That..."
Overall: Set up was non existant. Had to sand down bridge to lower action. Neck was flat and truss rod was non-responsive, therefore high strings buzzed. Fishman Aura did not effectively amplify the B and High E strings in measure w others... Sounds like a cheap toy unplugged. How disappointing this was, being a Steve Vai Signature guitar. Quality Control in China is severely lacking as is their final check procedures and non existent 'set up' before shipping. No Hard Case and is very difficult to find one and then priced at $179 + shipping!
