OVERVIEW

Gibson's classic J-200 style with eSonic2 electronics and generous cutaway.

Epiphone's EJ-200CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar offers all the playability, sound and style of the revered Gibson original at an easier price. A staple of stage and studio, the original Gibson model has been played by everyone from Elvis to Emmylou Harris and is a favorite among singer-songwriters. The Epiphone EJ-200C has a jumbo maple body with spruce top, traditional mustache bridge, gold hardware, and classic crown fretboard inlays. The onboard electronics make it plug-and-play-ready for the stage. Unplugged this jumbo box creates a big, tightly focused sound.The eSonic2 preampWhen you're ready to take the stage, the onboard eSonic 2 preamp will help you quickly dial in the robust acoustic tone of the EJ-200CE. It faithfully captures the guitar's rich harmonic range. A precision chromatic tuner with automatic muting helps keep your intonation dead-on and allows discrete onstage tuning. The muting feature also keeps things quiet when plugging and unplugging the EJ-200CE into an amp or PA. NanoFlex pickupThe 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 under-saddle pickups, the NanoFlex design utilizes 7 highly-sensitive and ultra-responsive 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
  • Select maple jumbo body
  • Solid spruce top
  • Set Slim Taper maple neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard with crown inlays
  • Rosewood bridge with synthetic bone saddle
  • 25-1/2" scale

I have been looking at this guitar for some time but was hesitant to get one. I had never played a jumbo before. I played a used one in my local guitar shop and liked it so much I ordered one from MF the next day! First thing you notice is the finish. Mine is the Vintage Sunburst and it is flawless... The way the color wraps around the guitar is stunning. It looks great from any angle.... Mine was setup perfectly. That is saying something! I like my Epiphones but most need work. This one is really nice. Plays very easy. It sounds great acoustic. Plenty loud. It really comes alive when plugged in! The electronics are amazing! From finger picking to hard strumming, it sounds fantastic! Line in a chorus pedal and magic happens! I am still getting used to the Jumbo size but it is over all very comfortable to play. It does jack your arm up a bit while sitting but you get used to it. I got this guitar to do acoustic gigs with my son. Very glad I did. This guitar is the whole package. Beautiful looks, great sound and great price! The only other Epi that I have played that was any better out of the box was the Masterbuilt. This Jumbo looks just as good or better, has the same electronics and is cheaper. I Am very happy with it!!!

After spending a few hours adjusting the action on my guitar I discovered the eSONIC 2 is not working as it should. I did not want to send the guitar back to MF so I'm driving two hours to, Guitar Center, in Las Vegas, to have the eSONIC changed out. Hoping I'll only need to do this once. Actually, two times. I'll need to make a return trip to pick up my guitar when it has been repaired.:(

After one year of playing...

By Louie McNeal

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

...I received this guitar last year. I decided to play it for a year and then give it a review. I play about 275 shows a year in various size venues both inside and outside, year round, alone in a solo setting as well as in acoustic duos, trios and in full production bands. I have used this guitar in all of those live performance situations as well as numerous recording situations and general 'around-the-house' playing.So, how did it hold up? This is a absolutely great guitar. For years I have dreamed of owning a Gibson J200, but I actually play music for a living and it is my only source of income, so the price has just been too prohibitive. The price on this guitar is ridiculously affordable, well within anyone's ability wiling to save up for a few weeks.The sound of this instrument both plugged in and unplugged is pretty diverse. The two pickups blend well and stand alone fine. The stereo function is a real plus. I experiment with two gtr cables and blend two channels on my mixer with various settings and slightly different effects. It's about the funnest guitar to play that I have ever owned.The body is very well constructed and light, especially for a jumbo bodied guitar. I've had to do seasonal adjustments on the neck, but I have never owned a guitar that didn't require this.It is a great sounding guitar with an ease of playability that is usually reserved for guitars I've played worth thousands of dollars.When it comes to the looks of the guitar... I have a black one with gold hardware and it is a beauty. I get comments on it everytime I take it out of its case at a show. I can't bear to keep it in it's case when I am home. I always seem to have it within arms reach or at least in my line of sight.If you do buy this one, you will definately have to buy the case that goes with it as not many genaric cases will fit around this big guitar. The case I bought for mine provides great protection, but one of the clasps doesn't fasten (had to be something).After one year of dragging this guitar from gig to gig and session to session I can truely say that this is one thing I have bought in the past 5 years that has actually been worth the money spent. I would highly recomend this for songwriters as wll. Strum one chod on ths, and you'll feel like writing a song with it. A pure joy to play.

Great Guitar

By Bryce Bass

from Missouri

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

overall this guitar is an unreal steal for the money
bought this guitar 2 years ago and was astonished by the tone, finish, and just every all around feature of this guitar for the price
AMAZING!!! this guitar has insane tone plugged and unplugged...ive played through tons of amps and pa's and no matter what type or quality of amp ive used i still get awesome sound...
great amazing guitar for the price...i was planning on forking out the cash for a high end taylor till i played this and then i was sold...the low tones are unmatched, and it doesn't drowned out the highs, plus the great tuner, not to mention the insanity that comes from both of the pickups, the nanoflex and the magnaflex!!!! couldn't pass it up...and you shouldn't either...

A GREAT guitar, with full sound

By GusMan

from Bellingham, WA

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I own 3 $$$ Taylor guitars (710ce, 812ce, T5 Custom) and wanted a less expensive guitar for taking boating, camping and jamming outdoors. So I bought this EJ-200CE (maple) guitar because the price looked great and the light color wouldn't get too hot in the sunlight. Wasn't expecting it to become my MAIN guitar!!! I use it all the time. It has a great full sound. Played finger style using the palm of my hand for rhythm makes is sound as though I've got perussion thing going. And the unplugged volume and sound quality (when playing outdoors) is better than my $3000 Taylors. Plugged in, the sound is very good, although the Taylors do sound better in that regard, because of their "expression system". My only complaint was the top 3 strings rattled off the frets when I received it so I spent $50 and had it setup correctly. Bottom line, if you want ONE guitar to take with you that has great action and sound, and not worry about it getting dinged...get this one.

Worth the bucks !

By Richard Raley

from Tx

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Came to me in short order. Action needed no adjustment out of the box. Plugged into my little Roland AC 60, and was blown away with the nanoflex pickups. Sounds as good as my Martin OMC Aura or my Taylor 714, The finish did have a couple of imperfections. Really not visible, unless you're really up close and personal doing an inspect. Certainly livable for the price. I have other Epi's from 64 and 65. The Caballero and the Cortez. Both have served me well though the yrs! I expect this to do the same!

Epiphone EJ200 CE

By John Callahan

from syracuse

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Excellent guitar with a nice setup out of the box. Tones are great and the playability is what I was looking for without the cost.
Like the electronics and the on board tuner. We changed the strings to Martin's and went to a heavier gauge and this made a difference in the sound- very positive. Would get the case. This is a jumbo and will not fit in a normal acoustic case as the Epiphone headstock elongates past the upper case closure. We made a sock for this so the headstock would not get damaged in transport. It is such a pretty guitar, get a case for the trouble it saves.
Very nice quality and it smells like wood. The electronics amplify this really well and the different pickups are very cool to adjust and play around with. People are blown away by the nice sound and the amplification is a plus -but unplugged as well, it sounds great.
Great value in comparison to a similar Gibson. Gibson wins hands down, but I would not want to take my Gibson out to where it could be damaged. I lend this to my son and have no worries. He really is just playing the heck out of this all of the time. We are very happy to have found this and tike the cutaway access too.

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I don't think you can buy a better guitar at this price. My Martin Shenandoah doesn't hold a candle to it. Excellent craftsmanship combined with a warm resounding tone and great playability. The built in tuner is a great added feature. Mine came set up by Epiphone in the USA and number 18 did a magnificent job. An all around great guitar.

    Great Looking "eye candy" Guitar lot of flair
    Good sounding guitar limited resonance
    Versatile player bluegrass, counry, western, blues, folk styles.

    Construction: selected Top; select Spruce means, it does not mean that it is Laminate. It is solid wood, just not of the same cut. Which means it will have different grain patterns, that is all.

    This guitar lookd like a Gibson J-200 and plays like a Epi DR-100. I had thrre of them two from China and one from Indonesia in SNBT and BLK.

    Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Near perfect finsh and detailing. Very clear and powerful tone.
    This Guitar is the same as the Gibson version and sounds the same. I noticed that it was used on stage at the Kennedy Honors this years for Neil Diamond. It is my 19th guitar and my third Gibson one of which is 50 years old.
