Thank you very much :cool:

The guitar model is an Epiphone PR-5 Jeff "Skunk" Baxter model.

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me it's value?
I was offered 550$ for a used one.

not sure but it looks quite nice, lol i never seen a 3 pin output befroe on a guitar very iteresting and useful atchally

wow, yea. i was about to say that. i've also never seen an XLR cable output from a guitar before. you could connect directly into a PA system without a direct box i would assume.

What are the benefits of the XLR output?

02-06-2008, 06:36 PM
yeh you cna put it striaght to a PA system, better sound quality alot of the time also, and also they dont fall out as it clips in so its more reliable for gigs ect, i dont see why they arnt used atchally, cuase u can have cables which change to 1/4 inch anyway for amps, just more stable,,, although saying that a huge XLR output on your guitar would look stupid if its not an acoustic

Most Ibanez electro-acoustics actually have a XLR output I think.

I'm sorry, I don't know what model that is, but it sure is one fine looking guitar.

This is an Epiphone PR-5 Jeff "Skunk" Baxter model. I'm not sure what year it is. If you look closely at the twelfth fret, there is a skunk inlay which was unique to this model. Today, Epiphone carries a similar model called the PR-5E but without the skunk inlay or the artist signature. Skunk Baxter used to play for the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan but now is working as a defense analyst and consultant to US Congressmen on Military defense and national security issues, mostly in the area of missile defense.

^--- correct.

and xlr outputs aren't really that uncommon on acoustic-electric guitars. there are plenty of preamp systems from plenty of manufacturers that include an xlr output. also, you don't need an xlr to plug into a PA system. most PA systems have inputs for both xlr and 1/4" cable.

hmm, for most of the PA systems i've used, i need to plug into a direct box, which i hate doing because im lazy and that's extra work when i clean up, ahaha. the PA system at my church, however, has the amp plugged to a direct box, but often times they turn us down on the system, which i hate because you cant hear anything loud enough...
