Overview

There's something magical about the big-bodied, all-maple jumbo "200" acoustic guitar. It's got a classic sound and classic look that has powered hits in rock, pop, and country for over 75 years. Now the Epiphone 2014 Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist offers you all that magic for less money.

The King of the Flat Tops, Reborn
The "200" jumbo style might be the world's most famous acoustic guitar, known equally for its majestic look and focused, complex sound. Since the late 1930s, many of the great rhythm guitarists and singers have made the "200" their primary acoustic instrument both on stage, on recordings, and even on record covers, including Don Everly, Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Presley, Gram Parsons, Buddy Holly, and Pete Townshend who used a "200" Jumbo to compose the songs for The Who's rock opera Tommy. The "200" Jumbo acoustic guitar is still a must-have for guitarists in every genre of music. And now the Ltd. Ed. "EJ-200 Artist" makes that classic sound affordable to everyone.

Based on Epiphone's legendary EJ-200, the Ltd. Ed. "EJ-200 Artist" features the same "Jumbo" body as the original with a select spruce top with hand-scalloped bracing for superior tone along with select maple back and sides which not only support the top but also help amplify its classic full-bodied tone.

The body has 6-layer black and white binding and the easy-to-play hard maple neck has a 25.5" scale length with medium frets with a 1960s SlimTaper profile that makes playing chords and rhythm easy. The hand-glued dovetail neck joint also contributes to the EJ-200 Artist's deep rich bass, clear mids, and brilliant highs that fill a room with jumbo-sized projection and volume. The solid rosewood fingerboard is fully bound and inlaid with pearloid dot inlays for a simple but elegant look. Its reverse belly rosewood bridge has a compensated saddle for solid intonation and tone. Choose from a variety of finishes from the drop-down menu.

Tuning is made easy, reliable, and intuitive with Epiphone's precision 18:1 ratio vintage style "Deluxe" tuners. The back of the headstock has a "Limited Edition" logo and the front of the headstock has a '60s era "Epiphone" logo.

Quality You Can Trust
Backed by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's famous 24/7/365 Customer Service, you can rest assured that your Ltd. Ed. "EJ-200 Artist" will have jumbo sound without any jumbo worries. But hurry, this is a Limited Edition model and won't last long.

I never had a jumbo before and didn't know how it would feel, when I play it. I found that it is the most perfect to play sitting down, because it rests against my knee perfectly! It also has more mid range and bass than my other guitars. The highest are fine too. :-)

As with all current production Epiphone's consistency is a real problem. Played a great EJ200 in the showroom. Took a tuner and confirmed very good intonation on floor model (which had not had a setup). Took one new home in box and got it tuned up and it has horrible intonation problems. Unacceptable quality on a product with so much included documentation reminding you of "just how much Epiphone cares!" combines to make the entire Epiphone line very offensive to reason players who know what great the brand once was.... Do not buy an Epiphone on-line. 2-3 will be garbage.

      I replaced a 2008 that I let get away. This guitar seems just as good.

      It needed a little fret work to get rid of sharp edges.

          Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          this guitar was on sale. it looked and sounded great. however the 13th fret was raised so badly it was impossible to play the 12th fret on high E. I tried tapping the fret down a little, and it kind of helped but still the note was buzzing. So i took it back to guitar center. they tried to adjust the truss rod to fix it but didn't work. So they offered to take it back and order another one for me. few days later I got the 2nd guitar. It had the same problem. I tried tapping the fret again. this time it almost fixed the problem. but still theres a light buzz when i bend the note.

          Another thing is, the lacquer where the neck and the body meets has cracked. same with between the headstock veneer and the wood. you can tell that they haven't bothered to sand the veneer so it aligns with the wood.

          Anyway I have made my peace with these imperfections. I don't think I could ask for more from a guitar in this price range. It's still better than all the Yamaha's in this price range that my friends own.

          Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          I read so many great reviews online of this guitar that when I saw it on sale for less than 200 bucks, I jumped on it. I ordered it online which was a first for me. When it arrived, it took a minute to tune up and then it just sounded amazing. However, there was one dead note spot on the 12th fret so I took it the Guitar Center store to see if they could tweek it. Turned out the 12th fret was a little higher and so I returned it. I found myself missing the sound of the guitar so I ordered another which has been perfect. The guitar is indeed jumbo but that comes with jumbo full sound. Totally great guitar for the money.

          For the $$, it's a lot of guitar. If you think you're getting a $1000 one for this price, wake up. This is a discontinued model and needs to be setup by you or someone you trust. As with all guitars in this price range, I had to file the frets, change strings, change bridge pins and grind down the bridge for better intonation. It plays beautifully. One thing I couldn't do is find a case, gig bag yes, but the cases cost3 times more than the guitar. This guitar will only increase in value with time. Enjoy.

          Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          I never had a jumbo acoustic guitar before and this was on sale so I decided to buy it. I enjoyed playing it on my weekly Saturday morning gig, but when I played it last Saturday morning, the frets on the high E, B and G strings were buzzing so bad about on the 5th fret up to the body so bad that no sound was able to be made on those strings. I tried adjusting the truss rod and lowered the tuning of the 6 strings a half step to see if I could get it to stop buzzing. No luck. So I called Guitar Center on Thursday February 18th and they said it was out of warranty as I had purchased it on January 2nd and the warranty only lasts 45 days. I guess the know the guitars they sell aren't worth covering. As best as I can tell, the wood in the neck must have not been cured long enough and it warped.
