Overview

Epiphone's version of the Gibson classic J-200, known as the "King of the Flat Tops", a guitar that has graced stages across the world in the hands of musical legends from Elvis to Emmylou. This modernized EJ-200SCE, features a jumbo maple body with a select spruce top, a stylish mustache bridge, gold hardware, crown inlays on the fingerboard, and a huge sound easily amplified by the an eSonic2 preamp with built-in tuner and NanoFlex/NanoMag pickups. Case sold separately.

A body full of grace
The EJ-200SCE's construction features a solid spruce top with select maple, back and sides and a striking cutaway that provides you better fret access than its predecessor. This 25.5" scale beauty also comes with Epiphone's SlimTaper select maple neck which helps give you a smoother ride up and down the rosewood fingerboard. The rosewood fingerboard has vintage style pearloid crown inlays and a 1.68" nut along with our iconic Sloped Dovewing Epiphone headstock with premium die-cast gold 14:1 tuners.

A fresh spin on classic tone
The tone from the EJ-200SCE's select maple top is enhanced by the classic rosewood "mustache" bridge and synthetic bone saddle. A tortoise-style pickguard with a unique dandelion art pattern helps round-out the EJ-200SCE's iconic look. Thanks to it's combination of tonewoods and construction, the EJ-200SCE provides you with a solid, yet balanced tone which lets rhythm guitarists and singer-songwriters feel like they're being backed up by a band even when they're playing a set pared down. The rich and complex tones the EJ-200SCE will truly inspire musicians everywhere over and over again.

Plug it in, plug it in
Taking the J-200 to whole new levels sonically, the EJ200CE features the Epiphone eSonic2 preamp system which features a built-in, easy-to-use tuner. And when you're playing, you don't have to worry about any accidental popping as the eSonic2 automatically mutes your output. When you push in the tuner button and unplug your guitar, it also keeps it "pop" free. The EJ-200SCE also provides you with tone-shaping options - NanoFlex Tone, NanoMag Tone, Stereo Blend - as well as Master Volume, and a Low Battery indicator and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. The eSonic2 is powered by two 2032 lithium watch batteries which are not only lightweight, but also last significantly longer life than more traditional, heavier 9V batteries.

Revolutionary stereo pickups
The EJ-200SCE features a compensated saddle with Shadow Germany's proprietary NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. The NanoFlex's unique flexible sensing material has integrated active electronics that picks up string vibration as well as top and body vibrations for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness usually associated with piezos. As a compliment, there is a NanoMag pickup mounted at the harmonic-rich end of the fingerboard. It features three Samarian-Cobalt magnets and an integrated active circuit to capture all the highs and lows, including a wide range of harmonics. The preamp allows you to chose 1/4" mono output blending both pickups or 1/4" stereo output splitting the two pickups, giving you incredible flexibility and opportunities to create the perfect acoustic tone live.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select Black, Natural or Vintage Sunburst finish.

I was so surprised and delighted when I first picked up my Epiphone EJ200CE. It has a great warm sound with clean hi's after I re-strung it with Elixir polyweb electric strings. (it is Acoustic/Electric)The tone controls came in to the rescue with my Marshal Amp. Anyone from beginers to seasoned advanced players will be quite amazed with the sound, price and quality of this guitar. Oh by the way, I never write reviews. This guitar made me do it!

This is my second review on this guitar. I finally returned it to Guitar Center, and they were very nice about it, and gave me a full refund. So no problem there whatsoever.

Within a couple days of receiving the guitar, I noticed that the pick guard was bubbling up and actually detaching from the face of the guitar.

After having the guitar for around a month I started having feedback problems on the low b notes on the 6th and 5th strings. That was the final factor that made me decide to not purchase another one.

It's too bad, as it is a beautiful instrument, easy to play, with good action. If you get a good one, you will probably love it.

Once again, it's worth mentioning that Guitar Center was very good to deal with. I can't imagine purchasing a guitar from anyone else.

    Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have owned many guitars over the years both acoustic and electric. Some have been very good, others quite bad. I've had my eye on one of these for years but financially was never able to pull the trigger. Yesterday I saw one at my local store that had come in used. I couldn't believe it. It was perfect. Vintage sunburst without one mark on it, proper set up with several upgrades(new Tusq saddle and nut), and even a hardshell case!! I immediately traded a Yamaha acoustic(which was a very good guitar but with laminate top and sides) and was able to bring it home. I literally could not put it down. It is everything I've ever wanted in an acoustic guitar. Deep, rich, warm tone from the bass and bright highs and mids. The neck is simply(for me)the best I've ever felt on an acoustic guitar. It is a very big body guitar, but then I am a very big body human, so it is extremely comfortable for me to hold and play for hours. Sounds awesome unplugged, and even better hooked up to my acoustic amp. Also, the guys at my local store(Boardman,Ohio) Josh, Matt, Ryan, Steve, et al, are some of the nicest guys out there. If you are looking at this guitar don't hesitate. Buy it!!

    I have a Gibson Pro and this guitar does a great job for day to day practice. It's plays well through a Mashall AS100 amp. The pick up scheme is great for a personal studio feel or live small stage action.

      Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Was looking forward to another guitar have bought several from this site and the Santana and other were great, this guitar had great reviews so tried it, was not inspected so pick up box only worked when it was off when on only low playing not electric so could not tune it was going to replace strings and turned it and was not a good sounding guitar and there were a few bad reviews just that week before it came so think it was a bad batch of them would now buy a fender or Taylor, my wife returned it and was going to Denver instead of mailing still looking for a good accustic guitar and will buy from them again only this guitar was not up to my standards.

        Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I LOVE This guitar... I have around 15 guitars and most of them are the high dollar stuff. Gibson Paul Reed Smith and Fender Taylor. But I have to say I love my Epiphone guitars. I have two Hummingbirds a straight acoustic, and an electric acoustic. But this is my first EJ-200 And It's now my favorite among the acoustics.
        It arrived very fast and after unboxing it all I had to do was adjust the action a bit VIA the truss rod and I put a new set of strings on it, and went straight into the studio with it. It is already on one of the songs for my third album project. I got the natural color one and it is beautiful.

        So let me start by saying, this may very well be one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen, beyond that it sounds incredible, the neck is very well shaped and super comfortable, the electronics are very nice. All in all this is a great guitar at a great price.

            Comments about Epiphone EJ-200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I have to be honest, I read many cons regarding this guitar posted on several sites, including the Epiphone site. Things like poor finish, bridge too high, electronics bad, etc. Even things like "was good at first, but went down hill quickly, neck bowed, broken bridge... This guitar has more than met my expectations. Overall a GREAT instrument. Maybe things will go wrong in the future, but that remains to be seen. The other GREAT thing about this guitar, is the folks at Guitar Center in Louisville, KY. Super bunch of guys and musicians. They understand and relate to their customers

                    Pick the best in the bunch and test a couple before buying. Feels like a Ginson jumbo for a fraction of the price. Sound and feel fantastic. A little heavier than my Gibson in comparison but let's not judge this beautiful guitar based on that. The action and playability is the best attributes this guitar has and you will not put the guitar down once you get started. Choose the proper strings to get the feel, bass, mids and level of volume you want this guitar to project and adjust the neck if needed and enjoy. Again it feels like you are playing on a Gibson Les Paul standard electric due to the similarity of the neck design. Even on medium gauge strings .13 it is bendable and you will not get fatigued due to the length of the bridge to nut. I own 2 of these one electric/non elec. and have 12 acoustics and this is one of my favorites to play with.
