Epiphone EJ-200SCE Electro Acoustic
Based on the legendary J-200 style acoustics, this Epiphone EJ200ce delivers iconic, instantly recognisable looks and those famous deep, focused tones.
The Epiphone EJ200 sce starts with classic jumbo sized body shape with an elegant cutaway for easy access to the upper frets. The body utilizes a solid Spruce top and select Maple back and sides that combine into helping deliver the EJ200sce's legendary big, bold and supremely balanced acoustic tone.
Superb playability is also on hand thanks to the select Maple SlimTaper neck profile, making for a comfortable neck whether hitting out chunky acoustic rhythms or playing some leads lines. The pau ferro fingerboard features vintage style pearloid crown inlays, a 25.5 scale and 1.62 nut width.
Dont forget that Epiphone EJ200sce is an electro acoustic, so not only do you benefit from great acoustic tone but also superb, controllable amplified sounds too, thanks to the excellent onboard electronics. The EJ200ce hosts two individual pickups. The first is the Shadow NanoFlex pickup that, unlike a piezo, picks up not only the string vibration but also the top and body vibrations too... none of that piezo quack and harshness here. The second pickup is a NanoMag, a pickup that is mounted at the end of the fingerboard delivering great highs and lows with a wide range of harmonics. With the ability to blend the two pickups it makes for host of excellent live tones to fit any band situation.
When you combine the two pickups with the onboard eSonic2 HD preamp you amplified tone is extremely mouldable. The eSonic2 features controls for Master Volume, NanoFlexTone, NanoMag Tone, Stereo Blend and a Phase switch, there is even a built in tuner mutable allowing for silent tuning great for stage use.
The Epiphone EJ200sce is a great value package, delivering an electro acoustic guitar which excels in both straight acoustic and live/amplified environments....this really is the King of the Flat Tops.

Absolutely delighted with the guitar. I knew I would be though, because I already have the sunburst version. It arrived perfectly tuned straight out of the box, with a lovely new set of strings on. I've used it live and on recordings and I love the full range sound I get, with plenty of bottom end and lots of sustain. I like how it sounds through my acoustic amp and acoustically too. I'd definitely recommend it - it's really high quality, particularly considering the price. You get a lot of guitar for your money. I've given it five stars because I really can't think of any way they could improve it at this price point.
