From the first guitar produced by Epiphone in 1928 to the day they joined the Gibson family in 1957 and all the way from then to the present, this guitar maker has always held on to its reputation for making great-sounding instruments. With a strong background in both electric and acoustic models, Epiphone's acoustic-electric guitars bring the two types together as a natural progression in their lineup of instruments. Acoustic-electric models are the chameleons of the guitar world. One minute they're a folky, bluesy acoustic, and the next minute they're plugged into an amp and filling arenas with huge tones. You can play these guitars unplugged when you want rich acoustic sound, or connect an amp to make them even more versatile. That could mean simply amplifying their natural sound to fill a large venue, or it could mean attaching effects pedals to completely transform instrument. How you play the acoustic-electric guitar is completely up to you.
Epiphone makes a good selection of different guitars to cater to your tastes in an instrument. If you're into vintage folk, you might like the special addition 50th Anniversary "1964" Caballero, a real singer's guitar based on the original model that helped kick off the 1960s folk revival. Body shapes range from dreadnought to classical, full-bodied for guitarists wanting a vintage look and feel or cutaway to give access to every inch of the fretboard. For the southpaws among us looking for a cutaway acoustic-electric guitar, Epiphone kindly provides with the left-handed EJ-200SCE. Whatever you're looking for in your guitar, you should be able to find it here.
That includes signature models as well, of course, which come in the form of the EJ-160E John Lennon guitar and the Dave Navarro signature. The John Lennon Epiphone is an affordable modern version of the classic Gibson J-160E that the legendary Beatle used to define the sound of rock music. Its spruce top, mahogany back and sides and single-coil neck pickup are designed to deliver warm, natural sounding acoustic tones when unplugged and rich, punchy, high-output vintage sounds on an amp. Dave Navarro's signature guitar, on the other hand, is made for shredding and projection, with a solid Sitka spruce top, SlimTaper D-shaped neck and tight 12"" radius. The Navarro presents a characteristic mixture of acoustic brightness with plenty of mid-range presence for a clear, brilliant tone.
Whether you choose one of those signature models, a Masterbilt or even just a beginner-oriented instrument, you can always count on your Epiphone acoustic-electric guitar to live up to the reputation of its name. Unplugged or amplified, there is nothing an acoustic-electric can't play.
