I'd been looking for a "back porch" guitar - one that I wouldn't have to worry about too much. I've currently got a Martin SPD-16R, and have had Guilds, Taylors, and other Martins in the past, so I have an idea of what constitutes quality tone and construction. I tried out a bunch of different $200+(-) over the past 6 months or so. I ran across the Epiphone AJ200SR on the Musicians Friend site, and read the reviews. I like the sunburst, Gibson Advanced Jumbo look. The guitar is well made and does not have that 'dipped in plastic' type of finish that many do. I happen to get a scrath and dent model. The only issue I could find was that the pickguard was lifting off at one corner, so I removed it entirely (a good look, I think). The setup needed tweaking, but what guitar's doesn't? The sound is pretty decent - I'd say good, and better than many guitars I played. I don't particularly care for the large Epiphone headstock, but.... everything else about this guitar makes it well worth the price.
I purchased this guitar with doubts, but when I received the guitar it was in great shape! The neck was streamline and everything else was in perfect condition. The guitar sounds great. The neck feels smooth, and the natural finish looks excellent! I would highly recommend this buy to guitar players that are in the beginner to advanced stage. I have played many guitars over the 15 years that I have been playing and this guitar is on the top 20 list. The price and attention to detail is amazing! Epiphone needs more credit. They are known to be the cheaper gibson but they do a great job keeping up with the top of the line models.
Bought from Musicians Friend two weeks ago, and am totally satisfied. While a beginner on guitar, my pro friends tell me the instrument is very playable with a good, straight neck. No string buzz, Great tone. Put extra light Elixer strings on it to help my virgin fingers build up callouses. Sound will improve with age & heavier strings. Item arrived quickly, no problems, is beautifully made. It may not be a Martin but it's d_mned close. And the Grover tuners are SMOOTH!!!!
It's hard to believe that you can buy something this nice for so little money. These are serious professional level instruments and with a pro set-up can be used to perform with or to record with. I spent about an hour to fine tune the action on mine and couldn't put it down. Looks pretty close to a real J-45 in the burst finish and although it's not a Gibson, it's a serious player and will improve with age with the solid top. Thinking about buying another one in the natural because of the great deal on a very nice guitar. I own a real Gibson J-45 and think the world of it but this one is good enough that I can use it to pratice on and save some wear and tear on my Gibson without getting frustrated with something subpar. The pickguard is pretty cheezy and thin but easily replaced if your picky like me. Buy one of these before they're gone!
