Overview

Epiphone introduces the FT-350SCE Acoustic-Electric, the world's first affordable self-tuning acoustic-electric guitar and featuring the fast, easy, and dependable Min-ETune System that gets you in tune quickly and accurately at the touch of a button. In addition to the Min-ETune System, the FT-350SCE comes with all the features that Epiphone fans have come to count on including a solid Sitka spruce top and a select mahogany body-the basic building blocks of a great acoustic guitar that you can enjoy for a lifetime. The FT-350SCE Acoustic/Electric has a glued-in 3-piece hard maple neck with volute with a 1960s SlimTaper profile and a 12" radius which makes for easy transitions between chords and solos. The hand-set neck has a scale length of 25.50" with 20 medium jumbo frets and a rosewood fretboard with "dot" inlays.

The body top has white and black 10-layer binding with 2-layer white and black binding on the back and a single layer of white binding on the rosewood fretboard. The sloped dovewing headstock has a '60s era "Epiphone" logo in pearloid, the same design found on classic Epiphones like the Texan and Casino. A special "2014" logo is also on the back of the headstock and the 2-layer black and white "bullet" style truss rod cover has a '60s style Epiphone "E" in white.

Min-ETune System
The Min-ETune System is a powerful new tool for guitarists of all levels. The compact battery-powered system tunes your guitar in seconds and can deliver 80-100 tunings on one charge. For beginners, having Min-ETune on your guitar means that every spare moment you have to practice your instrument, learn a classic riff, or try out a new idea will be spent playing instead of tuning. The Min-ETune knows your instrument as well as you do and can make fine adjustments that would be hard if not impossible to make accurately with a typical pedal tuner. The Min-ETune is fast, accurate, and requires no cables, Wi-Fi, or experience. For professionals, the Min-ETune will instantly make a big difference whether you're performing live in concert or in the studio. No more fiddling with pedals, small cables, or keeping an ugly clip-on tuner attached to your headstock. The Min-ETune is your invisible guitar tech-getting you in tune and keeping you in tune anywhere, anytime. At the push of a button, Min-ETune will tune all six strings to perfect pitch automatically.

Alternative Tunings Made Instant and Easy
For metal, rock, blues and country guitarists who are used to bringing multiple guitars on stage for songs that require open tunings, Min-ETune eliminates the hassle of long pauses in between songs or even the need to bring all that extra gear. Your Min-ETune comes with 12 popular preset alternate tunings. In addition, you can also program up to six additional tunings yourself. You can even adjust your guitar's tunings to match other instruments such as a piano. The Min-ETune system is nothing short of revolutionary. With the addition of the new Tronical SpeedNut that solves the age-old problem of string slippage and intonation, now there's nothing between you, your instrument, and the audience.

Tronical SpeedNut
Another new feature found on the FT-350SCE is the Tronical SpeedNut. Designed in Germany, the Tronical SpeedNut is made from an exclusive material that is two times more slippery than Teflon so there are no tuning hang-ups. The SpeedNut is three times harder than bone, making string vibration easy while maintaining precise tone and pitch. Each nut is precision-molded to ensure consistently perfect string height at the lower frets for easy fingering.

Shadow NanoFlex Pickup System
The FT-350SCE is powered by a Shadow ePerformer preamp and a NanoFlex Under Saddle Pickup System. Epiphone and Shadow Germany have worked together for over a decade at perfecting ways to amplify an acoustic guitar on stage so it sounds like an acoustic guitar no matter what your stage volume. The combination of the Shadow ePerformer Preamp-featuring a wide range of EQ options--and the NanoFlex under saddle pickup gives you unlimited control of the FT-350SCE on stage and in the studio.

Controls for the FT-350SCE's Shadow ePerformer Preamp are on the upper bout and include controls for Master Volume, Bass, Treble, Phase, Mute, and an adjustable Dynamics control. There is also a low battery indicator. The Shadow ePerformer preamp is powered by two 2032 Lithium Ion Cell batteries. The output jack and strap locks are nickel and the FT-350SCE is strung at the Epiphone factory with time-tested D'Addario Phosphor (12-53) strings.

Min-ETune Machine Heads
The new Epiphone FT-350SCE gets in tune and stays in tune thanks to the Min-ETune system with vintage style keys with a 40:1 tuning ratio. The revolutionary Min-ETune is the only proven system to keep your guitar in tune and automatically tunes to standard pitch as well as open tunings quickly and accurately. Any Epiphone guitar with Min-ETune feels the same, looks the same (the unit mounts onto the back of your guitar's headstock), and plays the same. But most importantly, your guitar also sounds the same since Min-ETune works by tuning the actual strings, not by digital trickery that degrades your tone.

The Epiphone FT-350SCE's Min-ETune comes with 18 preset tunings including 12 factory presets and 6 user programmable presets. The factory presets alone cover all the classic blues, rock, country, and metal tunings including Standard E, Eb with Drop D, Drop D, DADGAD, Open A, G, D, and E, and standard Dobro tuning. Save time and money in the studio, keep the flow going on-stage, and enhance your creativity with new tunings. Alternate tunings are hard to master, especially for new players, but Min-ETune gets you in and out of 12 custom tunings in seconds. You can even tune to instruments like piano that might be slightly off of standard pitch.

Comments about Epiphone FT-350SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Min-Etune:

Very nice guitar for the money. Only 2 negatives I see. 1. With 12 to 53 strings its a little stiff to play but it provides a good rich sound. So its a trade off. 2. The strings buzz a little out of the box when strumed hard. I will gladly live with this because I don't want to change the great action it has.
