Respectfully Disagree

By LA Jack

from Hollywood CA

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I played this guitar a few weeks back at a GC. I read other favorable reviews but had my doubts about the laminate top. Sadly, my doubts proved to be true. This guitar is very similar to the J-200 in appearance only. I own a Martin D-28 so perhaps I'm spoiled. I was looking for a trow-around guitar, and realized that I wouldn't get a high-end sound quality. Specifically, it plays like a $50 dollar cheapo. The sound is incredibly muted and lacks any real sustain. This fits in with my experience with other laminate topped guitars. I played several other guitars (all with solid tops) that cost $350 and below, and each sounded better than the EJ-200. You can buy a Yamaha or Fender with solid spruce tops for around $200. The best guitar I played in this price range was a Seagull S6. It does not have the flashy appearance, but the sound is vastly superior for the price. But this guitar if you want to hang it on a wall, but don't buy it to play. I have yet to come across a laminate top guitar that doesn't sound like playing a cardboard box.

Totally unexpected

By (Steve) "guitarstring20722\

from Middle River, MD

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I truly did not expect the quality of this guitar. I wanted a jumbo, but they're so expensive, and for the most part, unless you buy a Gibson, they're still rather plain looking. I bought the EJ200 for the value and I really believe I got way more than I paid for. I settled on the vintage sunburst finish for a lot of reasons. I'm glad I did. The vintage sunburst is a truly beautiful, classy finish. The gold Grover tuners and cream binding make for a superb finish. I expected a cheaper brand of tuner) It's as shiny and as perfect as a guitar finish can get. And the best part, right out of the box it played great. Really crisp highs and punchy lows. I used a medium sized pick, and the volume is incredible. The action is as perfect as it can get. I didn't have to make any adjustments. I read lots of reviews where a lot of people had to change the strings when they got theirs, but right out of the box, even the strings were nice. Aside from them getting my fingers a little black, they're fine, and I'll change them soon, but for now, I'll leave it alone. This guitar is a "must have" for beginners or pro's alike. I'm overwhelmed because I didn't expect to get the quality I received. My next guitar is gonna be the Epi Emperor Joe Pass model. If the quality is as good as my EJ200, I'll own a jewel.

Great! So much better than expected!

By Jamie

from Sacramento, California

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I have always wanted a Gibson J200 but without selling one of my children I just cannot afford or justify spending over $3k on a guitar. I ordered the Epiphone EJ200 not expecting much for 1/10th the price of the original Gibson. I was really surprised! The sound quality out of the EJ200 is comparable to the Gibson. The finish is great and the action is perfect. I did not have any fret buzz or problems with rough frets. This is a boomer!

Looks Great, Sounds Better

By Johnny Rebel

from Fairfax, VA

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I just got back from Guitar Center with this bad boy about an hour ago. After an hour of playing, I'm blown away. The quality and craftsmanship on this guitar is top-notch. It looks beautiful - I particularly like the "moustache" bridge. The sound is incredible - full, resonating when playing chords. Bass and treble sound great when playing arpeggio. This is a step up in quality for me. This is my third Epiphone and I've been very satisfied with all of them. I heartily recommend this guitar.

What I needed...

By Lauren

from Oklahoma City, OK

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

The EJ 200 is a wonderfully made guitar. Compared to other guitars that I have owned, I would say this is the easiest for me to play. The tone quality is very sharp, clear and deep. I definately recommend this instrument.

Very Beautiful Looks and Sound

By Brady

from Dayton, Tennessee

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I just bought this guitar today at guitar center in Chattanooga Tennessee. I love the ease of play and oversize jumbo body. I can fret this guitar easier than I could a Canadian made Gibson. You will be very pleased with this guitar. The vintage sunburst and gold tuners with pearl just seals the deal.

Epiphone EJ 200 classic

By Steve S.

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I bought the Epi EJ 200 about a week ago after reading about and playing several models in the similar price range.The ej 200 is very smooth to play. The action is terrific. I got the natural finish which is stunning.The neck and headstock binding and nice frettboard inlay make this a handsome guitar. The tone is nice and deep with good sustain and projection.The gold plated grovers are top quality and hold true.They say it can sound even better with better strings, we will see.The only other accoustic that was in the running with this one was a Sigma by Martin. The Sigma played fantastic and sounded good but was not half as good looking as the ej200. I was a bit disappointed that the ej200 did not have a solid spruce top but the sound is great so I'm happy, besides I hear that a laminated top is not as vulnerable to humidity and temperture damage. I think this guitar is a leader in its price range.

Epiphone EJ-200, Great sound

By Kevin Hatton

from Buffalo, N.Y.

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

I just purchased an Epiphone EJ-200 Jumbo. This guitar has the sound of a $2000.00 Gibson. I tried two in the store. One had better high end response than the other, but that might have been due to older strings or setup. The one that I chose was oustanding in both it's bass end response and high end. The fit and finish are oustanding. I own many expensive top of the line instruments. I would put the Epiphone EJ-200 Jumbo up againt any of them on stage. I highly recomend this guitar.

A Good Guitar

By Jay

from Memphis

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

This is a good guitar for an intermediate player. I wanted a jumbo but didn't want to spend a whole lot on one. The guitar has a good deep sound to it. I would recommend changing the standard strings to something a little better. I put a set of D'Addario EXP12's on my guitar and it brought out the tone a lot more than the standard strings. The guitar is overall easy to play and looks great!

Best Acoustic Ive Ever Handled

By Jason Meyer

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic Guitar:

Ive been playing with a Yamaha for about 3 years then I saw this Epiphone on the wall one day and I tried it out since I own an Epiphone bass. It sounded like an angel and Ive had for about 3 months and even if its from The Beatles, Chuck Berry or even Lynyrd Skynyrd this acoustic does it all. And even the strings that come with it they're superb and I havent taken them off yet. If you love the Gibson EJ-200 you'll definitely love this better.
