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 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!!!

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:

Bought new. Finish was excellent. Electronics are great. I read so many great reviews that I needed to buy one. The tone unplugged is good but not great. A little thin sounding especially for a jumbo (compressed sound). Granted the guitar is cheap with laminate back and sides. If you spend a little more for a Masterbilt you get a much better tone. For its price it is great but it is not comparable to more expensive guitars.

        I'm happy with my EJ200sce. It's a very nice looking guitar and it sound good. It's the second Epiphone I've purchased and both are nice instruments. They've both come out of the box ready to tune up and play.

              The sunburst finish is awesome but the guitar never sounded good. The volume is very low for a jumbo and it had a buzz I could never get rid of. I adjusted the neck and tried different strings. I believe it had a high fret. I finally sold it.

                    I have a standard sized Yamaha AC3R that I really like, but I needed a second 6 string guitar with a jumbo body that projected a bit more in small venues. I looked at buying a Gibson J-200 which is what this guitar is based on, but - right now - I didn't want to spend that much. So, when I saw this blem Epiphone I took a chance. Mine came with a 2 inch deep gouge right along the bottom of the face of the guitar - near the seam. It's not very noticeable because of the blond color of the guitar. If this were a black or sunburst it would have been much worse. It sounds good and plays fairly easily.
                    For the money - hard deal to beat!

                          This guitar is a replacement for the first one I received. Hopefully I won't experience any problems this time. The first one was great I loved everything about it & gave it a 5 star review. However, after a month it developed a low frequency hum in the "nanoflex" pick up. Sadly I had to return it, but I wasn't ready to give up on it entirely so I ordered another. The second one is even more amazing. The action may be a thousand or two higher, no problem. The volume unplugged is way louder than the first one. The bass response much, greater as well. The overall tone & voice is fantastic. I own some very fine Martin guitars, as crazy as it seems, this "Epi" rivals them @ a fraction of the cost. so @ this point I have to give it five stars. Hopefully, the last one was a fluke, & nothing will fail on this one.

This is a great guitar and the wood is very nice, beautiful wood grain and nice detail all around. Best of all it sounds great! For the price you can't beat it!

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

                                            I read all the reviews, and was optimistic. I wanted a gig guitar with stage presence, convenient modern electronics, & an alternative voice to take over for my battle scarred Martin D15 that I want to preserve.
                                            I was surprised how nice this ax looks in person the quality of fit & finish was above expectation. The sound is not as jumbo as the body suggests but the tone is nice, & the amplifier will make it as big as I need. My keyboard payer actually prefers the sound over my d15. That may be a bit over the top, but that's what he said.
                                            The action & setup out of the box was also surprisingly good. I expect the sound quality to improve via the solid spruce top but even as is I can't imagine anyone being disappointed considering the price. I will probably install a bone nut & saddle, to improve sustain (although it's quite good as it is). I'm a tinkerer though, & like to customize my possessions if they warrant the effort, this guitar does.
                                            It's not a complete solid tone wood guitar, but neither is the price. As others have said,"great bang for the buck".

                                              1. SERVICE - Best. Very friendly, helpful support. 1st guitar had a loose jack, support talked me thru fix, but my hand was too big to access plug. They arranged quick free return and sent me a new guitar They also gave me a price break on the new one.
                                              2. GUITAR - Sounds awesome. Very full and bright, even without amp. Thru amp is really cool. What a deal for the price. Very happy
