OVERVIEW

A modern take on the popular 200 jumbo style at a price that makes it affordable for anyone.

There's something magical about the big-bodied, all-maple jumbo "200" acoustic guitar. It's got a classic sound and classic look that has powered hits in rock, pop, and country for over 75 years. Now the Epiphone 2014 Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist offers you all that magic for less money.

The King of the Flat Tops, Reborn
The "200" jumbo style might be the world's most famous acoustic guitar, known equally for its majestic look and focused, complex sound. Since the late 1930s, many of the great rhythm guitarists and singers have made the "200" their primary acoustic instrument both on stage, on recordings, and even on record covers, including Don Everly, Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Presley, Gram Parsons, Buddy Holly, and Pete Townshend who used a "200" Jumbo to compose the songs for The Who's rock opera Tommy. The "200" Jumbo acoustic guitar is still a must-have for guitarists in every genre of music. And now the Ltd. Ed. "EJ-200 Artist" makes that classic sound affordable to everyone.

Based on Epiphone's legendary EJ-200, the Ltd. Ed. "EJ-200 Artist" features the same "Jumbo" body as the original with a select spruce top with hand-scalloped bracing for superior tone along with select maple back and sides which not only support the top but also help amplify its classic full-bodied tone.

The body has 6-layer black and white binding and the easy-to-play hard maple neck has a 25.5" scale length with medium frets with a 1960s SlimTaper profile that makes playing chords and rhythm easy. The hand-glued dovetail neck joint also contributes to the EJ-200 Artist's deep rich bass, clear mids, and brilliant highs that fill a room with jumbo-sized projection and volume. The solid rosewood fingerboard is fully bound and inlaid with pearloid dot inlays for a simple but elegant look. Its reverse belly rosewood bridge has a compensated saddle for solid intonation and tone. Choose from a variety of finishes from the drop-down menu.

Tuning is made easy, reliable, and intuitive with Epiphone's precision 18:1 ratio vintage style "Deluxe" tuners. The back of the headstock has a "Limited Edition" logo and the front of the headstock has a '60s era "Epiphone" logo.

Quality You Can Trust
Backed by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's famous 24/7/365 Customer Service, you can rest assured that your Ltd. Ed. "EJ-200 Artist" will have jumbo sound without any jumbo worries. But hurry, this is a Limited Edition model and won't last long.

No matter where the guitar came from, even brought from general Asia (Korea, Indonesia & QingDao CH), no matter how much it really costs, to me it is the best Epiphone acoustic guitar ever made!

For me, sounds exactly as the Noel Gallagher's Oasis Epiphone EJ-200 from Live Forever MTV's Unplugged!

I'm proud of myself!

This is a Chinese made guitar. My first one had deep severe random orbital sander marks all over the front and back and the finish looked as if it was brushed on with a deck brush. The intonation was off more than 5 cents and in general the glue and workmanship looked extremely poor. I always expect to do a complete setup on the Asian guitars but these problems were unacceptable and uncorrectable. I thought (hoped?) maybe it was a bad reclaim that shouldn't have made it out the door. It was sent back to MF for exchange.

I received the replacement ten days later and was very disappointed that the body on this one also has noticeable random orbital sander marks in the wood and the finish has significant flaws besides looking like a bad brush job by a middle school shop student. The neck and frets are rough and uneven but it looks like they can be brought into spec with a truss rod adjustment and some serious fret leveling, crowning, and polishing. The intonation is within 5 cents at the 12th fret, which is the cutoff point for acoustics in my book -- we'll see what the truss rod adjustment and new strings do. The tone is good -- sounds like a maple jumbo is expected to sound -- and the action out of the box is unusally light and low with minimal fret buzz, despite the fret variability.

My biggest concern with this guitar is that whoever made it is has no clue how to properly shape, sand, glue, and finish wood. Bad sign for a guitar factory and really unacceptable for something bearing the Epiphone name. The Indonesian Epiphones I have (3 total) are of significantly better build and quality with immaculate finishes. Otherwise, a good sounding and acceptably playable instrument out of the box needing (hopefully) only minor adjustments. The favorable recommendation is based on value-price point compared to other similarly priced (i.e., cheap) guitars, not any great qualities of the guitar itself. I'll let it settle in and acclimate for several weeks before I go completely through it and update this review if there are any additional concerns.

Beautiful sound, but save your money

Comments about EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

The only reason I'm giving this guitar any stars is because of the sound that it produces. It's amazing! The body and the neck feel good in your hand and the headstock looks fantastic. Looks and sound aside the quality of this guitar is junk. Save your money and buy the better model. This is not worth your time. The first guitar I got, the neck was bent, sent it back, they sent a new one, the headstock was peeling off.

    Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

    slight buzz on the low e and a string. just put a sliver of matchstick under the saddle(1/4" long under the low e position) and voila. ready to go. Jumbo means big and thick guitar which is what I wanted. Make sure you do.

          Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          What a great strumming guitar! I purchased the natural finish, and the guitar is stunning to look at...the maple neck, sides, and back give this big-bodied guitar incredible sonic qualities usually not found at this price point. What a sweet tone! Set-up was great out of the box, and after a string change, this acoustic just sang!!! Playability is excellent, tone is excellent! I've had the guitar now for two and a half years, and, if anything, the tone has grown sweeter as the guitar has matured. Musician's Friend has, as always, provided quick delivery/service, and Epiphone has knocked this one out of the ball park- a sweet sounding, quality guitar with knock-out looks at an incredible price. Not everyone can afford the thousands a big-bodied Gibson can cost, and while not a Gibson, the EJ-200 Artist more than adequately meets my meager needs at a fraction of the cost. A beautiful sounding guitar-gorgeous to look at, and a treat to play!

          Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          The ej-200 sounds good but not as good as the 'round shoulder' aj-220. The action could be better and since the truss rod will only turn one way which makes the action worse not much can be done about it. Still, it's a very playable guitar and the tone is suitable for what I use it for, mostly folk and bluegrass music.

            Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

            I've had almost without exception good luck with open-box purchases from MF, but this one may beat them all. I still can't believe that someone returned this guitar, unless they just found it a bit too "jumbo". Nor can I believe that a guitar of this quality can sell for so little. I guess I'm showing my age. The set-up was perfect, and compares well to my 1973 Gibson J-160 E as far as intonation and play-ability of the neck are concerned. No, the finish doesn't compare, the bridge and nut are plastic and it doesn't come with a case. I'm still astounded. I've played this guitar(finger-style, flat-pick) for a couple hours, left it out in the room, put it in the back of my truck (in an old case of course!) bounced along the road with it and the thing's still in tune! It was ALMOST in tune on arrival after shipping and handling by UPS! The sound is full and rich and may brighten with time. But if it doesn't, who cares? Saying I've got my money's worth would be a gross understatement.
