OVERVIEW

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

Epiphone's version of the Gibson classic J-200, known as the "King of the Flat Tops", a guitar that has graced stages across the world in the hands of musical legends from Elvis to Emmylou. This modernized EJ-200SCE, features a jumbo maple body with a select spruce top, a stylish mustache bridge, gold hardware, crown inlays on the fingerboard, and a huge sound easily amplified by the an eSonic2 preamp with built-in tuner and NanoFlex/NanoMag pickups. Case sold separately.

A body full of grace
The EJ-200SCE's construction features a solid spruce top with select maple, back and sides and a striking cutaway that provides you better fret access than its predecessor. This 25.5" scale beauty also comes with Epiphone's SlimTaper select maple neck which helps give you a smoother ride up and down the rosewood fingerboard. The rosewood fingerboard has vintage style pearloid crown inlays and a 1.68" nut along with our iconic Sloped Dovewing Epiphone headstock with premium die-cast gold 14:1 tuners.

A fresh spin on classic tone
The tone from the EJ-200SCE's select maple top is enhanced by the classic rosewood "mustache" bridge and synthetic bone saddle. A tortoise-style pickguard with a unique dandelion art pattern helps round-out the EJ-200SCE's iconic look. Thanks to it's combination of tonewoods and construction, the EJ-200SCE provides you with a solid, yet balanced tone which lets rhythm guitarists and singer-songwriters feel like they're being backed up by a band even when they're playing a set pared down. The rich and complex tones the EJ-200SCE will truly inspire musicians everywhere over and over again.

Plug it in, plug it in
Taking the J-200 to whole new levels sonically, the EJ200CE features the Epiphone eSonic2 preamp system which features a built-in, easy-to-use tuner. And when you're playing, you don't have to worry about any accidental popping as the eSonic2 automatically mutes your output. When you push in the tuner button and unplug your guitar, it also keeps it "pop" free. The EJ-200SCE also provides you with tone-shaping options - NanoFlex Tone, NanoMag Tone, Stereo Blend - as well as Master Volume, and a Low Battery indicator and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. The eSonic2 is powered by two 2032 lithium watch batteries which are not only lightweight, but also last significantly longer life than more traditional, heavier 9V batteries.

Revolutionary stereo pickups
The EJ-200SCE features a compensated saddle with Shadow Germany's proprietary NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. The NanoFlex's unique flexible sensing material has integrated active electronics that picks up string vibration as well as top and body vibrations for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness usually associated with piezos. As a compliment, there is a NanoMag pickup mounted at the harmonic-rich end of the fingerboard. It features three Samarian-Cobalt magnets and an integrated active circuit to capture all the highs and lows, including a wide range of harmonics. The preamp allows you to chose 1/4" mono output blending both pickups or 1/4" stereo output splitting the two pickups, giving you incredible flexibility and opportunities to create the perfect acoustic tone live.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select Black, Natural or Vintage Sunburst finish.

    I own several guitars -- a Martin D-35, a 1958 Martin 00 Classical, an Epi Les Paul, and a Fender Acoustic electric, and have played for about 40 years, professionally at one time, but now mainly as a hobbyist. When I need it, I play through a Peavy Delta Blues 210 amp, which is a great amp.I have always wanted a jet black acoustic guitar, and when I spotted the Epiphone EJ-200CE Acoustic - Electric, I thought I would give it a try. The first one arrived with a flaw on the 4th string tuner, so I sent it back for a replacement. The next guitar arrived OK, looks great, has a pretty big sound, not compared with my Martin D-35, but then this was about 1/4 the price, and I could use it for more knock-around purposes. I really like the sound I can get from tweaking the Esonic electronics, which really helps make up for a lack of much depth in the bass strings when I play through an amp. But after a couple months the fingering has developed a problem, and the 6th string won't play from the 5th to the 7th fret, it?s not just a buzz, it basically won?t play. I tried making small adjustments to the neck, but no change, that string is still dead in the middle of the neck. I am taking it to a guitar repair facility to see what they can do, but honestly, if I had it to do over again, I think I would throw in a few more dollars and buy a Gibson Songwriter Special or something similar with a bigger bass sound, and no neck/fret problems.

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

      I decided to do things I enjoyed during my early life again in retirement - "Senior Renaissance." The staff have been excellent in their personal touch and professionalism and I will definitely go back to this company for any future needs. Customer service is so appreciated and seldom found any more. I'm taking lessons again 50 years later and hope to do justice to this beautiful instrument.

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

      A fabulously beautiful guitar, wood grains, fit and finish-flawless. Let it sit for a couple hours, humidified house cold travel. Tuning, intonation dead on. Mine is the White Natural body color.
      This is a huge guitar body, but comfortable and the neck is sweet. Perfect set-up. Playing it 5 days now on supplied strings... going to call Epi Support for recommended string specs. Have been changing electrics from Darco-25 years to David Gilmore GHs's. May stay with Darco PB 80/20 12's on first restringing of acoustic. Buy the case, you'll never find one and this is a fine instrument.You'll be glad you did. Epiphone is beating Gibson to pieces in my book. Value, workmanship, fit and finish, great new PU's, split coils, etc. Bought one Black Genesis on-sale, got it, played for 15 minutes and bought a Tobacco burst... plugged it in...all OK... back in it's Epi case... great guitar and split coil capable. The Ultra III is really being overlooked or under-advertised...amazing sound combo's from Nano and HB's---Play on...

              Had this for a week before a fellow musician bought it from me on the spot. Immediately ordered another one. I've barely touched my solid body since I got this. Clear bass, almost jangly high end, great for rhythm in a band (and slide, too) or to accompany a solo singer. And it's nice to hear all the compliments on how great it looks!

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

                  This EJ-200CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar guitar is my first acoustic purchase. I'm relatively new to guitar as well, although I've dabbled a bit on electric before this purchase. This guitar is very aesthetically pleasing, to both the eye and ear, generally. It's has a beautifully put together body, and the mag blend sound is exhilarating. This guitar entices me to pick it up and play/practice every time I look in its direction. Many well versed musician associates of mine are very impressed with this guitar overall. I did have to swap out the strings with a slightly lighter gauge as the stock strings were a serious challenge even to other acoustic playing friends of mine who tried it as it was.
                  In addition, the cutaway neck really offers versatility and allows you the potential to shred.

                  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.
