All acoustic guitar packs do not have to be the same and Epiphone proves that with the AJ-220ST Premium Player Pack. Starting with an Advanced Jumbo, Solid-Top acoustic and with innovative and useful features that include a built-in tuner and a wall-hanger to store and display your instrument when not in use, Epiphone gives you a pack that's not like all the rest.
It Starts with a great Guitar
With its bell-like shape featuring a larger lower bout and smaller, round upper bout, the AJ (Advanced Jumbo) has a very focused and balanced tone. The bass is deep, rich and loud while the highs have a crispness and brilliance that cuts through. Most noticeable however, is the clear mid-range that's never muddy like the typical square-shouldered dreadnought. The result is an AJ acoustic guitar that's often been described as the perfect instrument for the soloist or singer/songwriter with a sound that blends with vocals.
A Solid Spruce Top
While the AJ shape plays a big role in its signature sound, the AJ-220ST benefits from the use of premium materials and traditional construction methods. The top is made of solid Sitka Spruce that not only sounds great right out of the box, but actually improves as it ages. Complementing this are back and sides made of select Mahogany fitted to a solid Mahogany neck. For great stability, tone and sustain, the neck is glued into the body using TiteBond glue and a traditional dovetail neck joint. Easy and comfortable to play, the neck shape is Epiphone's classic 1960's SlimTaper D-profile with a smooth, fast satin finish.
While other packs include a separate tuner that's hard to use and easy to lose, Epiphone has installed the super-accurate Shadow Sonic sound-hole tuner. Lightweight and discretely mounted just inside the sound-hole, it's in perfect view while playing and allows you to tune-up without an interruption or plugging in.
Experienced guitarists know that when a guitar is close at hand, you're more likely to pick it up and play it. After all, what good is a guitar in a case stuffed under a bed or in a closet? With this wall-hanger, you can not only safely hang and display your beautiful guitar on the wall, but also put it away or take it down in no time.

Comments about Epiphone AJ-220ST Solid Top Acoustic Guitar Pack:
I bought this guitar used and it's one of the best deals i have ever gotten. I've played a lot of different brands of guitars from cordoba to gibson to collings and this is a tremendous deal. The bass strings are amazing, not muddy at all and the bottom strings are rich and bright, sounds great strummed or finger picked. Very pleased with this guitar, if your just getting started this is the best starter pack and guitar for you. To be honest i was just looking for a good sounding beater guitar and i took a chance on this one because i bought it used for [$]7 and was shocked at the sound. i'm wanting to buy another one and put a LR baggs pickup in it that's how pleased i was with this guitar. It's amazing i can't say enough about it.
Comments about Epiphone AJ-220ST Solid Top Acoustic Guitar Pack:
What's not to want here? A good solid top guitar at a great price. I've had mine for a year, and it sounds better now than when I got it. So don't shy away because it's a starter pack, this is a real player's guitar, with a big sound.
The guitar I bought is the AJ220S. This is the same guitar but with a built in tuner and extras, at the same price.
Potentially an excellent guitar. I only gave it an 8, but there are some 10s in this line. Good workmanship in the construction. Even the interior is well finished and clean. Well dressed frets. Stays in tune. Plays well all the way up the neck. I have seen less than perfect finishes with these, but nothing that's a deal breaker. There may be a lemon or two in the line, but Musicians Friend makes returns easy. They pay the return shipping, too, so you are only out some time. Some may come 'ready to play', but don't count on it. My action was too low, but easily fixed. I don't know if these were all made in the same factory, but mine is Indonesian.
If you get one of the good ones, this is one of the best values anywhere. And the value is enhance by the service that backs it.
