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 EJ-200 Artist Flame Top Acoustic Guitar 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 "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.

An Incredibly Sweet Sound For The Price !

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Flame Top Acoustic Guitar:

The Epiphone EJ-200 models, with their jumbo Grand Auditorium bodies, are amazingly sweet sounding and playing for non-Taylors at the modest prices they sell for. Having played some Taylors, I'd say they are good enough sounding to sass even a Taylor 114E or 324 ! As much bang for the buck as can be had anywhere....

EJ200 Artist, Great Guitar for 199

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Flame Top Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased this guitar a few weeks ago, off the bat , I noticed the strings were a little high for me. I thought about doing a set up on it, but my guitar guy said it would have to have the bridge removed and sanded down. Well, then I did a little checking around and figured out, this is a normal thing with the 200. So I put a set of 12 D addarrio strings on it, and , it plays very well. Down around the 12th fret, the strings are a little high, but i play with a capo anyway. The wait on the guitar was longer than I thought it would be, but, all and all, it's a dam nice playing, booming guitar. I love it. I ordered the trans black, it's beautiful. Well worth the wait, and, don't judge it by it's price, if you want a nice jumbo, it's worth it. I love epiphone, this is my 4th, and i love them all. Thank you GC..

What Are you Waiting For? EPIC GUITAR FOR PRICE!

Comments about Epiphone EJ-200 Artist Flame Top Acoustic Guitar:

$200 Plus FREE S/H for the KING OF FLAT TOPS? The EJ-200 Goes for $400 usually and the fact Epiphone Cancelled making these is a criminal offense in my mind! Why even pay $1000 TO $2000 for a Gibson or Martin? This Guitar delivers on all levels and the WINE RED limited Edition Color is a BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL sight for anyone's eyes! A MUST HAVE! If you want a Professional guitar to rock out to.....THIS IS IT!
