Overview

From Epiphone comes this beautiful entry-level guitar, priced for anyone to afford. Dressed in a beautiful finish, and featuring appointments you'd often find on higher-end guitars, the Epiphone AJ-220S guitar sounds just as good as it looks. Built on advanced jumbo body design, the depth of the body and the width of the shoulders create a large sound chamber, presenting tone that is full, deep, and loud.

The mahogany back and sides paired with a solid Sitka spruce top brings out rich harmonics, lots of projection, and clarity in tone. A glued-in dovetail neck joint keeps the Epiphone acoustic guitar's neck and body stable, without losing any subtleties in tone. The mahogany neck adds strength, as the wood is quite durable and will stand up to the elements. The rosewood bridge and fretboard produces lasting sustain, in a deep appearance.

Dressed in a polyurethane finish and featuring such desirable appointments as sealed die-cast tuners and nickel hardware, you will love the look of the Epiphone AJ-220S guitar as much as its sound. Built under the expertise of Epiphone's master craftsmen, this acoustic guitar will sound excellent for a very long time. And at this price, you can't go wrong.

This is the perfect guitar for beginners. Solid spruce top, mahogany sides and back. Delivers great sound for someone wanting to try guitar without spending too much money. I own a Epi AJ-200EVS (same family) and I wish they made these guys when I first started. Pretty much the same as any of the 200 family except this 220 has a satin finish on the neck. This is huge! Your hands slide with great ease up and down the neck. Satin finish=slide, poly finish= sticky, clammy hands. The tuners aren't grover, just grover look-a-likes. As you get better just upgrade your string contact points (bone pins, bone saddle and bone nut...maybe better tuners) and your guitar will rival anything less than 1,200 dollars. Of course each guitar does look and sound a bit different, but the general build of this guitar is an amazing deal. I now own a Gibson J-160e (huge beatles fan) and I can say that although the gibby does sound and play better, the 220S isn't that far behind once I upgraded a few things.

There was always a little buzz on the low E, and it took me awhile to realize that the 14th fret was dead all across. After about 6 months, the neck twisted to the point where it's completely unplayable. It's significant enough that you can easily see the twist from across the room.

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar:

    Some day I will own a Gibson Advanced Jumbo. For now, while I'm learning notes and chords, I don't need to beat up a $3,000 piece of art. The Epiphone AJ220S is an absolute joy to play. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star never sounded so good. I did a lot of research and a lot of trying out before I settled on this guitar. It feels right. I love the neck. The set up right out of the box was perfect. The guitar sounds great. The jumbo shape makes this thing ring clear and loud.

          Comments about Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar:

          This guitar was purchased at G.C. for my personal use.
          The finish is a gloss body and a satin neck. My guitar's finish is flawless and rich. The binding and fretwork is very good. The internet photo doesn't do it justice.
          The tuner action is smooth and consistent. They hold tight. The truss rod is adjustable both directions at the headstock. My guitar came set up well.
          The AJ has two strap buttons. And all the hardware, and pickgaurd are secure and solid.
          The tone is well balanced to my tastes with the bass notes not drowning out the treble. Tone is very subjective but I find it enjoyàble to listen to. And play. I like the stock strings.
          If you like the feel and tone I would recommend checking out one from the box. A floor model may leave a little to be desired.

            Very good buy for the price. Excellent tone and playability. Nice comfortable neck, well made. Only hiccup was that I ordered a Natural finish and received a Sunburst, but I liked it so well that I kept it. All in all, a very good deal.

            Comments about Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar:

            I've had this guitar for half a year now and it seems like reasonable amount of time to write a review. This guitar is great for the price it produces a very loud and clear sound. I went to my local Guitar Center and I played almost all the solid body guitars that they had for the price(200$) and to me this was the best overall considering sound and playability. The only thing is though that I did have to return the first Aj-220s that i got because it had to dead frets on the low E so i would suggest thoroughly examining this guitar when you get home.

            Comments about Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar:

            I Cherry picked this AJ220S acoustic at my local GC in Whitehall Pennsylvania. And at $199 I had to rub my eyes and scratch my head at the tone and quality this guitar had, even with the corroded set of strings that came on it. I know good tone when I hear it..and I could hear the clear, even tone through the bad strings, so that would be an easy fix. Took it home, put Elixir nanoweb 80/20 lights on her...Wow...this is no AJ220S...this is a Gibson J-45. It is so fun to play, such good action, perfect flawless finish. I finally have my J-45. ...Ok so it's not a J-45...but it is as close as it gets to a J-45. Don't pass it up. You'll regret it if you do! This guitar is amazing and it will not last. Get it today! Play it for years.

            Great Sound, Great Price, DONT DROP IT

            By michael warren

            from Tupelo, MS

            Comments about Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar:

            I had this guitar for around a year and a half. I bought it online. Before I ordered it I drove to a Guitar Center and played several in the same price range. This was hands down the best guitar for the money. I compared it to several that cost 300-500 dollars more and there was not enough difference to warrant spending the extra cash. This guitar is amazing. The action was perfect, not too high, not too low, and all this guitar needs is a new set of strings (which any new guitar needs) and it is ready to play. I have friends with Taylors and Martins and they were amazed at the sound this guitar produced. Sadly, my dog knocked the guitar over a week ago and the neck broke just north of the nut. This is the first guitar I have lost to damage in over 15 years of playing. In short, great sound, great looks, great price, but don't drop it! It will not survive a fall.
