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.

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

    This guitar sounds great and looks great. I got a blemished one at an incredible discount...I could find nothing wrong with it when it arrived. The set-up was perfect right out of the box and after tuning it up, I set to playing around with it. The electronic tuner is a nice feature. The guitar sounded great a natural or plugged in. It offers both a Nanoflex pickup for strings and resonance and a Nanomag bridge pickup. Plugged into an amp this baby sounds spectacular.

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

      This guitar has a nice feel and makes me want to play it which will increase my skill. The high quality and craftmanship are evident in its look, feel and sound. It is also quite attractive and looks great hanging on the wall with other musical instruments I have collected from around the world. Although I will use it initially as an acoustic guitar it is nice to know it can also be used with an amplifier.

      A must buy

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

      This guitar is amazing, from the rich tones to the styling. It sounds incredable plugged in and blows my mind that its inexpensive...Though I had buzzing when I first bought it, it cleared up with new stings and a weeks worth of playing...I just couldn't put it down.

      Great Guitar, Great Sound

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

      This is a great looking, great sounding and great playing guitar. I play in the Church band and love this guitar. It is so easy to play, the action is very light with no buzzing of the strings with only light pressure applied. It works great with a capo, no detuning that I can detect. It's looks is just stunning, everyone that sees it remarks on what a good looking and good sounding guitar it is. The built in tuner is outstanding, you can check your tune anytime anywhere. However, I have found that it holds tune very well, even when being transported to and from the Church or other venues. The electronics are faultless and work great. I don't amplify mine, our small Church just the sound of the guitar alone is awesome. Bottom line, I love it and you will to, buy it you won't be dissapointed.

      Jumbo Joy

      By 

      from Hilliard, Ohio

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

      The EJ-200CE dominates the foreign made acoustic guitar market! The EJ-200CE is a well made, AFFORDABLE acoustic electric. I bought this guitar because I was low on cash and needed an acoustic for my next performance. I have not been disappointed since the day I bought it. The guitar is very versatile, it can be used to record in a studio, and also be used in a live performance. It provides a large open tone due to the jumbo and the piezo pick-up (Once adjusted to the neck) provides a clear feed with very little fret buzz. Over several years I have had the chance and the money to buy several higher end guitars, such as Martin's and Taylor's, and even the Gibson jumbo, which this is based off of, and I am here to tell you that this guitar has surpassed each one in tone and affordability. The tone on the Epiphone jumbo was warmer,clearer and more distinguished than its Gibson Brother. This is truly the harmonic soloist chosen Ax. The EJ-200CE holds its ground with three key features. A phenomenal tone, the bang for the buck, and the stunning features and looks of this guitar. It truly was created to suit the modern musicians needs of a great guitar, and the want of saving money!!

      Well-worth the back-order wait!

      By 

      from Yokosuka, Japan

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

      High demand guitar. All retailers are seemingly perpetually out of stock (took seven months for mine to arrive) and now I know why. I've played dozens of acoustics over the years and this is by far the best for the money. I bought it as a "beater" to keep from carrying my Martin D-28 to small venues where it was subject to user/customer/guest abuse and now I prefer the Epi over the Martin. Action is low and fast, neck is narrow (just right for my "average"-sized fingers) and the thing is factory-set up (actual settings included with documentation) and ready to play right out of the box. And talk about light! I couldn't believe there was a guitar in the box when I received it.On the down side, I expected more sound from the jumbo body unplugged. Doesn't project real well and doesn't have the bottom end associated with jumbo bodies. Of course a heavier string may cure that. The EQ module is not a real tight fit in the body and the stick-on internal wire retainer wasn't stuck when I got it (and still isn't). The EQ is placed right in the body bend which equates to the square peg in a round hole. Moving it another inch or so towards the neck wouldn't hurt anything. The installed strings were not to my taste so I re-strung with Martin bronze lights. It's winter here in Japan as I write this and I've found that I have to allow for about two hours of warm-up time when going from outdoors to indoors to avoid continual tuning. Don't expect the Gibson fittings, either. I was a bit disappointed in the plastic bridge but it does the job well. The first re-stringing was a bit of a time because until the strings are seated properly the pegs will pull out so be patient.The up side is that pushed through my Fender acoustic amp it sounds fantastic! Better than I had hoped. The EQ is so tight that I just set the amp EQ to mid-range and work the rest from the guitar. Fixing the down-side issues would give this guitar a definite 5-star rating. The sound, however, is what we look for and this guitar has it.Bottom line: I highly recommend this beautiful instrument to beginner or pro. This one's a keeper!

      Superior

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

      The EJ200CE has been my guitar of choice. For one reason alone, playability, mobility. Many a time have I slung this guitar on the tour bus at the last minute and with no regrets, perfect for those singalongs plays 'Half the World Away' by Oasis like a wizard, great guitar.
