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 was looking for an affordable acoustic guitar to use in country rock and acoustic blues. This guitar has a sound and playability that far surpasses its cost. The finish is pleasing to the eye, the neck and action fits my fingerpicking as well as flat picking needs. All in all a great value for those of us that cannot afford an "original" J-200.

          Requires a PRO setup
          Ok out of box , but missing full potential w/out a setup.
          Tuners are fair . Seems to drop tuning easily .
          On board tuner nice addition.
          Great sound for price .
          BIG BODY may overwhelm a small person

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

            This seems to be a great guitar, but I am returning it because the pickguard is bubbling up and separating from the body. That is the one of the two negatives that I can mention.I will add that Guitar Center has been very nice about the return so far. Although I am waiting until after the Christams rush to do so.

            The second negative is the placement of the tuner. It should be rotated 90 degrees so that you can look straight down on it. As it is, you have to rotate your head 90 degrees to read it. Really seems like a boneheaded mistake, and certainly not in keeping with the quality of the rest of the guitar.

            That said, the guitar is beautiful, the finish as smooth as glass, and the tone, especially the deep tone, is very good. The setup and playability were great right out of the box. The action is low, and it plays very easily.

            The electronics are quite good, the tuner works well, and the two pickup configuration works out quite well.

            The guitar is fun to play, sounds great plugged into an acoustic amp, and feels very good in your hands. I'll report back on the replacement guitar that I receive.

              I picked this guitar up a few months ago, I wanted time to play it before i wrote about it.
              Im totally in awe, this guitar playes like a much more expensive brand, ithad many nice features, the tuners are top of the line, its very very playable, the action was set up pretty well ( I had to tighten the truss rod just alittle) it sounds AMAZING!!!!!
              Im very happy with this guitar, and would buy another in a heart beat!

              I have been playing guitar off and on for about 40 years.I have had several name brand guitars over the years.I recently purchase a 416 Taylor from the guitar center and do like this instrument a lot.I did read most of the reviews on the ej-200 and most all are very positive.Now having played the ej-200 for 3 weeks I have to say it is uch more guitar than I expected.I use medium stings and this thing sounds great.For under the 500 dollar range you can't match it's quality and appearance.Would highly recommend

              Excellent Guitar - Great Sound

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

              I got this guitar as a gift and whoa what a surprise. This guitar is gifted - great sound, pickups and features. It's got a fantastic look and is easy to play. The action is just low enough to where I don't destroy my fingers playing Elixir 11's. Oh and did I mention the dual outputs?? Reminds me of an old Rickenbacker bass ... Anyway - I've been away from the guitar for several years but I'm definitely going to play a lot more now. Thanks Frank!
