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 version 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-200CE’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-200CE’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-200CE’s iconic look. Thanks to it's combination of tonewoods and construction, the EJ-200CE 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-200CE 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 EJ200CE 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-200CE 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 3 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.

  • More guitar than I deserve

    As reviewed by Lane Boozer on 8/9/2011

    ...but man does it make me sound good. I bought this guitar after a couple of buddies bought theirs. I really hadn't planned on buying a new guitar at that time, but the sound this thing produces just made me fall in love with it. It sounds as good unplugged as it does amplified. AND, with the "stereo" outputs and the adjustability of the pickups (TWO pickups) you can really shape the sound any way you want it. On top of all that, it's just beautiful to look at. It's beautifully put together..and it's just dang sexy. Mine is the EJ200CE in the natural finish. She's absolutely lovely. There's a reason this guitar is called "the poor man's Gibson". The ear of most of your audience is unlikely to hear a difference. BUY ONE.

  • Excellent Guitar!

    As reviewed by Marcus Howard on 7/10/2011

    I got this guitar about 6 months ago, and I haven't been disappointed. THE LOOKS! The guitar looks beautiful (and the chicks dig it ;) And although it may not be a Taylor or Martin, the sound is very good. If you are REALLY looking forward to plugging it in, then i would consider different guitars. I plugged it in, and personally i thought it sounded good, but not as good as others might put out. I haven't had any problems with mine except there is only one case that fits it!! But anyways, I would recommend this guitar (especially for the price)! and note, you should probably put new strings on as soon as you get it.

  • Love it!

    As reviewed by Jordan Hooker on 5/2/2011

    I bought this guitar while on the road in 2008. My guitar just wasn't cutting in on stage and so I decided to try something new. I was first attracted to this guitar because of the classic Gibson look, but playing it won me over! I had it fully set up a year later and with the action appropriately set, this guitar has one of the greatest sustains I've ever heard.
