Overview

From Epiphone comes the beautiful entry-level acoustic-electric guitar, priced for anyone to afford. Dressed in a beautiful finish, and featuring appointments you'd often find on higher-end instruments, the Epiphone AJ-220SCE 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's full, deep, and loud. The cutaway guitar body design provides comfort when accessing the upper-register frets on the rosewood fretboard.

The Epiphone AJ-220SCE guitar's mahogany back and sides paired with a solid Sitka spruce top brings out rich harmonics, lots of projection, and clarity in tone. A glued neck joint keeps the 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 acoustic-electric guitar's rosewood bridge and fretboard produces lasting sustain, in a deep appearance.

The SlimTaper D-shape neck and 12" radius add speed and comfort to your playing, while lessening player exhaustion. The Epiphone guitar's ebony fretboard, rosewood bridge, and bone nut produce some of the clearest tone possible, so you can hear your notes with crystal clarity.

At the heart of this Epiphone acoustic-electric guitar is the integrated electronics, letting you plug in and amplify quickly and painlessly. The Nanoflex pickup is capable of conveying all the harmonic and organic dimensions of the acoustic sound spectrum. Nanoflex pickups produce an open sound, conveying natural harmonic overtones. Shadow developed a unique technology that amplifies and shields directly at the pickup. This innovative technology keeps loss of sound at an absolute minimum and guarantees a signal that is completely free of noise. The Epiphone AJ-220SCE guitar's preamp includes master volume, high EQ, low EQ, phase reversal, chromatic tuner, and dynamics controls to dial in your ideal amplified guitar voice.

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

I fell in love with this guitar the minute I laid eyes on it. I tested it out and it's perfect. The price is so affordable and it plays like a dream. I've owned this guitar for about a year now. Never gets out of tune, built in tuner which is very convienient and it sounds beautiful plugged into an amp. My most favorite guitar I've ever owned. I recommend this guitar to anyone, easy to play and can't beat the price. Not only does it play well, its so sleek and doesn't scratch easily.The sunburst is just fabulous. It's so affordable it's almost "too good to be true" but frankly it's just a great guitar at a great price. Couldn't be happier with Epiphone, I just think their a great brand for those who can't afford a Gibson.

It is a beautiful guitar & sounds great right out of the case. I have owned one for about 5 years. I still love sitting around picking it but here is the deal. Even after purchasing the humidification system per GC advice the guitar's top would bend & dry out causing a buzzing in the strings. GC"s tech tried to adjust the bridge height as well on the neck but nothing would completely take the buzzing out. It started happening right after my 2 year pro coverage ran out. I now play buzzing Epiphone AJ220. Construction not so good either. The guitar strap connects onto to the jack on the side of the guitar. Well after about a year of gigging with it the jack becomes lose and you can't even put a strap on it. We tried to fix that as well several time. It's just an acoustic now.

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The AJ200-sce is a definate step up from the 220s due to the built in tuner and amplification. I can only tell the story from my view but I really love this instrument. I am one that looks for how to improve whatever I have and here is my list. Nothing was wrong with the instrument as it was but... I did this in order to make it sound even better.

    1. Replaced the existing tuners with 102-18 tuners for better tuning control and a more stable tuning. .
    2. Added a Planet Waves "O-Port" and found it increased the sound quality (To my ears) and volume appreciably. (Checked voume with a sound meter to be sure)
    3. Changed the strings to Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Medium Lights.
    4. The on board tuner is pretty much dead on in all respects... I tune the guitar at the 12th fret for the entire fretboard reference and so far the on board tuner shows it to be in tune. Using a tuner with a +/- .5 cent tolerance you may have to fiddle a little but... any of the rest show it to be good.
    In my experience, this guitar is everything I hoped for.. I can't see the utility of a far more expensive guitar and would really like to do a blindfold test for a non believer.

    The best in class in this price range

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I spent several hours in GC playing every acoustic/electric cutaway in this price range and the Epiphone AJ 220 SCE was the winner. The sound both acoustic and electric is very good. The finish on the body is excellent. The action is awesome. I can play power chords up and down the neck like I was playing my stratocaster. My only complaint is that the frets are a little thin and with heavy use may need to be replaced with a few years of hard playing.

    I've had this guitar fo 2 years and still LOVE it!

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar 2 years ago and it still sounds great today. I did have some trouble with it this winter...BUT it was my fault for not knowing how to take care of it. The frets started buzzing like crazy between the 9th and 12th frets. So I took it in to be serviced. All he did was humidify it for a week and do a simple setup on it and it sounded great again. I also bought an in-hole humidifier and now store it in a case when I'm not playing it instead of on a stand. I would buy this guitar again...only with a humidifier to start with.

    Great Guitar, but...

    By Paul Buchholz

    from Freehold, NJ

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar sounds great, is very playable, looks nice and is overall well built. As an acoustic guitar it is an excellent choice. The electronics just don't sound that good. Sorry but they don't. Otherwise it's one of my favorite guitars, and I can always use a mic (sounds killer with an SM57).

    Pay attention and take your time

    By Ray Reisinger

    from Connersville, IN

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I picked this guitar over Yamaha and Fender acoustics because I've alway liked Epiphone. It's embarrassing to admit I probably picked the worst guitar in the whole guitar center! I loved the looks, the electronics and most importantly the sound is unbelievable for this type of guitar. What I didn't catch, (face turns red), was that the neck had a dead spot on the 14th fret that I still can't get fixed and the frets seemed to be cut off with a dull hack saw and left totally undressed. Watch for this! However, I took care of the frets, put on some extra light daddario strings and aside from the one dead spot I absolutely love this guitar! I'm sure there are better ones out there than what I bought, so don't be afraid to spend $300 on this little beauty!! Just pay attention and take your time!! Oh, and check the tuning keys, they are always loose so when ya change the strings make sure ya tighten the nuts. Acoustically, this guitar is amazing. Plugged in ya can keep up with the big boys and the built-in chromatic tuner is a true blessing for beginners and professionals alike. Overall quality is excellent and you can't look at it without picking it up and playing till your 'fingers bleed'!

    I'm not real thrilled with this guitar. I was looking for an inexpensive Electric Acoustic. The top had split after only a couple of months.

    Great value

    By phillip Bowling

    from Carlsbad California

    Comments about Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Needed a slightly wider nut for finger picking, the AJ-220 has an 1 11/16 nut. Perfect for me. I like to play Mississippi John Hurt, Elizaeth Cotton, Norma Kaukauen like stuff. I went in thinking Higher end guitars, but after 2 hours of playing everything in the store, the 220 had the best playability for me. Plus this undefinable quality in sound and ease of fretboard and action, which I was having a hard time believing because of the cost. They had 2 in stock. The one in the box had a crack in the deck. The top of the guitar has thin strips of glued together wood, and one had cracked from the others. So I bought the floor model! I would strongly suggest you buy this directly from the store, but even if you do have issues with it GC is great about making you (me) happy. Go and play this guitar, you won't believe how good it sounds. I cart it around with me and don't worry that much about it cause it did'nt cost an arm and leg. Oh, and the pickup works great also... I have'nt been using it cause the guitar sounds so good by itself.
