I bought one and after a few days the neck was buzzing and had dead spots between the 8th and 14th frets. Took it back to the store and the other one they had was afflicted with the same problem. The sound and the look were ok but they were unplayable, both of them. Too bad Yoko.

The ultimate Beatles sounding guitar

By NiceguyD81

from La habra, CA

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

This is by far the best guitar I have ever come across, and belive me I've come across many. Modled after the gibson j160e, this guitar is very similar, the only difference is the name, at the top of the head stock. As far as everything else it sounds exactley the same, and is the guitar for you, if your a fan of The Beatles music. I highly recommened this guitar to anyone who is not looking to spend an arm and a leg, and get that great sound that john lennon & George Harrison got from them.

Surprised

By Frankat57

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

I grabbed this guitar because it was slightly dinged during shipment and was deeply discounted. I was surprised by the rich tone and overall finish. sounds great amped up and plays great soft or banged pretty hard. I would recommend it to anyone who wants great sound, good looks, and is a little nostalgic.

Great Guitar

By BW

from West Linn, OR

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

This guitar sounds great plugged in and without the amp. It is a great guitar for those of you who want the Gibson version, but don't have the money. It looks the same for the most part. The only difference is the Cherry Sunburst finish and the John Lennon signature by the neck. This is a great guitar overall, I cannot think of anything wrong with it, so I gave it all five stars. I have never had a problem with it. If you want the sound that John and George got on those early Beatles records, than this is the guitar for you.

Awesome!!!!

By am

from NJ

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

I found this guitar very versatile, and its able to achieve a fantastic tone both unplugged and plugged. As it came from the factory, some things needed adjusting like the action and after a month or two my volume and tone knobs slid loose, but after a quick set up, my guitar plays just as good as guitar high above its price range, and thats even without its Beatle connection, which was obviously my main reason for the purchase. It definitely delivers a rich Beatle tone that I feel the guitar is known for, and it delivers. A great buy for guitar players of all kind who want a legendary acoustic at a great price.

Love that epip Lennon guitar

By Frank G. Wetteroth

from Ste. Genevieve , Mo.

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

I fianlly made the move! I fianlly bought the epiphone Lennnon acoustic/ electric guitar. I love it but you got to remember at 57 I'm a Beatle and Lennon freak. The sound when one streaks a chord is incredible. So light weight and easy to move up and down the neck. The only thing ( and it's probably me) I had a difficult time tuneing it. However I love this guitar.

Try BEFORE You Buy!

By BluesRenegade

from Houston, TX

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

I played a brand new EJ-160E and my first reaction was disappointment at the very high action. The strings are way too high off of the fingerboard! Whether you're chording or playing lead, this guitar fights you. For comparison, I played an EJ-200CE and found it had much lower (and better) action. As for the electronics, the pots were smooth and worked well. This guitar uses a magnetic pickup, therefore, when plugged in it sounds more like an electric guitar than a modern acoustic-electric. As for the sound, the sound of this guitar is as good as everyone says! I really wanted to buy one of these guitars but I know I would not be happy with the very high action. I like to play up and down the neck and this is not the guitar for that, I'm sorry to say. :(

My Fav!

By Bobby

from NY, NY

Comments about Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon Acoustic-Electric:

I'm not at all surprised that this was the Beatles "go-to" guitar throughout much of their recording career. It has a beautiful sound, is extremely durable, and best of all plays like a dream. Highly Recommended.
