Thick, loud, and righteous sound.
The stunning Epiphone EJ-300S Jumbo Acoustic Guitar is a whole lot of guitar. The artfully-joined solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides deliver flawless tones from dark, thunderous lows to bright, sweet highs. Large body, classic moustache bridge, floral-pattern pickguard, and rosewood fingerboard with crown inlays give it a commanding visual presence.

I bought this EJ-300S because my grand daughter saw it and wanted it. At sixteen years of age she is learning to play the guitar fairly well. She loved the looks only, and that was what swayed her decision to have this EJ-300S as a birthday gift. I was lucky to find that this one EJ-300S had been very well made, and the attention to detail was quite good The string set up was a bit too low, with string buzz on the treble side. I adjusted the truss rod, changed strings and gauge, and that was corrected. The tone of this EJ-300S is not good. It does not have the depth of sound a jumbo bodied guitar is noted for. Even with the solid spruce top and laminated rosewood body it is not a loud guitar at all, with very short sustain. What this model Epiphone needs is a solid rosewood back, or a solid mahogany back. The price range would be higher but worth it.
Evidently this guitar is in high demand, as it had to be put on back order. It arrived today in perfect condition. All that was needed was to tune it up. It played great and sounded great right out of the box. Fit and finish are excellent. No complaints whatsoever. --JDD.
This guitar has a big fat sound in the lower end! Compared to high dollar Martins and Gibsons I have played, the only difference is the price. I got great tone quality for a lot less money. The appearance is also very stunning. Everyone who sees and plays it has been very impressed.
"DAMN" that was the first word out of my mouth when I heard the FULL SOUND of this guitar. I owned a Gibson J200 a few years back and it never sounded this good. The one thing I would like to see changed is a smaller neck - This baby has a wide, fairly flat neck and for someone with small hands it could be a hassle - but for the money you can't go wrong. I've owned and played Gibsons and the American Epiphones since the 60's and I feel this is a great value for the buck.
This jumbo, flat-top, acoustic guitar sounds GREAT! The action, which can be changed, was perfect right out of the box. It has a very full, even sound. However, the bass is significantly superior. I recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a bargain. I have been buying and selling guitars for eighteen years at guitar shows. This will be a big seller! This is a great price for this guitar.
I am very satisfied with my purchase. I have played this guitar for 3 months and I am delighted with the full and rich sound I get when I play. Very easy to play with no fret buzz. I love the look as well. Nicely finished.
I ordered this guitar because I thought it would have a loud and deep sound. WRONG! This was a beutifull guitar when I opened it up, but as soon as I tuned it, I knew it was going back the next day! It had no volume at all, and I could not believe how brassy sounding it was,to be a big guitar. I was hoping so bad that it would sound good because like I said,it was one of the best looking guitars I ever saw. But I didn't want to look at it, I wanted to play it! Dont waste the money it will cost you to send it back, unless you just want to sit it on a guitar stand and look at it.
The EJ-300s is basically the EJ-200 with the more vibrant solid top. For the price, it's in a class by itself. The sound is full and rich with a lot of bass. I play mine at punk shows and the kids think it's cool, then head over to coffee houses where it's the perfect "country" guitar. The EJ-300 makes a big, bold statement. It's a whole lotta guitar and a lot of fun for somebody who loves to get their hands around a big acoustic.
Well, here goes. I've just recently moved from England over to the states to a significantly dryer climate and so the low humidity levels caught me and guitars of guard. As this is how I make a living i needed to replace them quick. I have no idea how my mind could manufacture such stupidity. I decided to go budget, until i could afford a like subdtitute of the same level (i.e Taylor, Martin etc). I got out of the box, looked pretty good, I looked closer, I was then mentally, spiritually, physicallt scared for life. Tuners on headstock were not straight, glue all over the inside of the guitar, loadsa visible glue of the top 5 frets, tuner on the headstock werent even put on straight, over gloss(dripage) in the finish, fret buzz all over the place (this is no exageration)- it sounded like a cigar box with elastic band pulled across it. Are Epiphone having a laugh at my expense? Why yes they are. The factory should burned the ground (take the people out first though). Maybe my standards are too high, hmmm maybe not, maybe I just want a quality guitar, epiphone wont be able to meet this requirement at all. I feel emotionally wounded- DONT BUY this guitar. Save and buy an investment (Taylor, Martin, Larrivee etc). Unbelievable, where they asleep, possibly drunk when they made this?
