Warm, woody tones for a tiny price.

The Epiphone AJ-100CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar brings the look and sound of the Advanced Jumbo to everyone. Guitar comes with standard AJ features such as a select spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a rosewood fingerboard. The AJ-100CE includes a cutaway body style and the Nanoflex pickup for electric amplification.

NanoFlex pickup
The term "Nanoflex" refers to its ultra thin (nano-like) profile and its flexibility that allows it to conform to any surface shape. This assures complete guitar-to-pickup-to-saddle contact. Unlike other undersaddle pickups, the Nanoflex design utilizes 7 highly-sensitive and ultraresponsive layers of sensor material to not only sense the vibrations of the strings but the vibrations of the guitar body as well. The Nanoflex is the first pickup to incorporate active amplification directly at the pickup. As a result, the signal does not pass through even a single millimeter of the wire and therefore, the signal quality is uncompromised.

Features

  • Mahogany body
  • Select spruce top
  • Set mahogany neck
  • Nanoflex pickup under the saddle and endpin jack
  • Rosewood fingerboard with dot inlay
  • Chrome hardware
  • 25.5" scale

        Very nice guitar overall, but has a few small problems. A few tips for beginners, this will sound terrible directly out of the box, but as with any new guitar, you should change the strings, that will remedy the sound problems. The action is very high as well, so a professional tune/set up would be a good idea as well. The sound is a slightly less-huge Gibson, in all reality. The mids are still clear, the highs are clear and bright, but not brassy or ringy, and the bass is big. This guitar was worth its money plus some, and I would reccomend this to anyone looking for a guitar at and affordable price..
        There are some features missing, but that is to be expected in a guitar ion this price range. There are no active electronics, preamp, equalizer, controls, tuner, bone saddle/nut, decent tuners. Now, what is there can be kinda surprising. Solid spruce top, laminated mahogany back and sides, solid mahogany neck, half-decent finish, great neck, etc. All-in-all, very well fitted for a guitar in this price range.
        Have had to replace one thing, and that's the tuners, which I expected. I've had this guitar for about two years now, and am still happy with it, more or less. Body and neck are super solid, and the finish is alright, but chips too easily.
        Overall, a very nice guitar for the money paid. Would buy another one if something happened to this one, just because funds are tight, and it's the best guitar for a price I might be able to live with.

        I bought this guitar about a year ago, and straight out of the box, three of the tuning keys when played, rattle. The three highest strings to be exact. Whether I am playing on g b or e the tuners still rattle. I can play one stroke of the low e and the tuners will still rattle. I'm not very pleased with this guitar. For the money, I guess its not too horrible though. It has good sound and projection, but fyi, i did remove the tuner keys from the guitar to tighten them and they still rattle. If I were you I wouldn't risk it. I have played the straight unelectric acoustic epiphone aj and two of the highest tuner keys rattle on that as well. Go with the rogue, you'll be much more satisfied. Or if your looking for just a guitar to play around with, look up the goldfish guitars. They sell two with a speaker in them. Fun little guitars to play if I do say so myself, and they perform.

          Comments about Epiphone AJ-100CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          The guitar was in need of an adjustment to the neck and could not be fretted. I had to travel 35 miles and spend money to have it adjusted. I could have bought this item locally with no problems with the merchandise. The money and time I had to spend made this item overpriced.

            Comments about Epiphone AJ-100CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Plays really well, and has a nice warm tone, and good volume and projection. Has binding around the edges and a Gibson style truss rod cover on the headstock. I don't like that stylized 'E' on the pickguard but I imagine the it will wear off over time. The neck feels really nice and plays well, has good action and smooth fret ends. The angled headstock keeps the guitar in tune well and looks nice too. The guitar sounds good plugged in, so if you're going to play gigs it works for that. I do wish that it had a built in EQ and volume, but it has none of that, just a peizo pickup and an output jack. I don't play plugged in very often so it's not a big factor for me. The output jack is built into the Strap pin, which I like, and there is a strap pin on the heel of the guitar neck. I definitely recommend this guitar, especially if you're on a budget, or want a guitar that you don't want to worry about getting beat up.

            Comments about Epiphone AJ-100CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I received this guitar as a Christmas gift. As I opened the box, my son. an adult, remarked on how shiny it was. After almost a month of playing, I am pleased with the gift. After changing strings and adding brass saddle pins, the sound of this budget guitar came alive. The action was good out of the box, and so playability was not a problem. The quality of such a low-priced guitar is amazing, though I did find one tiny flaw that does not in any way affect playability. I especially love the cutaway on this model- I found my fingers going places in the upper frets that I have always dreamed of going but never could because of the rounded bouts on my other acoustics.

            Like others who have reviewed this model, I found the lack of an on-board EQ a bit puzzling. I remedied this situation by purchasing a Behringer V-Tone Acoustic ADI 21 DI box, which acts as an tone/level controller. The V-Tone ADI 21 works well, and, like the guitar, didn't cost an arm and a leg. This combination affords me the flexibility I need for recording, which is my main application, aside from songwriting.

            I have always been partial to the Epiphone brand (in all, I have previously owned over ten Epiphone guitars, and currently own six) and this inexpensive model packs a lot of value. Great for a beginner or the intermediate player looking for an extra strumming guitar. I am very happy with this guitar.

              This sales rep that talked to my wife told her that this was a better choice than what we were originally going to choose, which is fine. However, her main concern was that it had to be a white guitar. She asked the rep more than once if this was a white guitar, and he told her yes. After receiving the product we were a little disappointed. It was not white, it was a wood grain color. But other than the color it is a nice guitar but mislead by the sales rep.

                      The guitar is really good, although lithe neck did come in dry and the action was really high, I had to clean and adjust the truss but once that was finished the guitar sounded pretty good for its price, I enjoy the sound of the guitar with its thicker body, it gives a more warmer sound and is perfect the playing I do. As for the sound of the pick up, I tend to use a pedal to adjust the sound to fit my desired sound, but it's a pretty decent pickup in my opinion.

                        This is a great guitar for the price. Good action and surprisingly good quality construction. The electric pickup quality is a little poor, distorting somewhat when played through an amp. However, I bought it mainly for the capability of easily getting to notes above the 12th fret, so the pickup was a secondary consideration.
