This is alot better than what I expected. I was thinking it would have okay sound but I was blown away. The action was perfect for all of the songs I love to play (Good Riddance, Jumper etc.). If you are looking for a guitar with just the right size, action and tone; I recommend This Epiphone EJ-200.

What�ۡ���s all the hype about the Epiphone EJ-200 Artist? I�ۡ���ve been playing since 1974 and I currently own several acoustic guitars and most are solid tops with a few that are all solid wood body. Almost all are dreadnaughts with the exception of one Concert and one Auditorium and they are all Natural finish. I wanted to add a Jumbo and a Sunburst to my collection. So, in December of 2011 I ordered the EJ-200 Artist in the Vintage Sunburst based on all the positive reviews I read about the guitar and its�ۡ��� sound. Well here is my review: If I have to score this guitar on its�ۡ��� looks, I�ۡ���ll give it a 10. If I have to score it on the feel of the neck, I�ۡ���ll give it a 10. It has a petite neck which is great for small hands like mine. If I have to score it on its�ۡ��� sound, I�ۡ���ll give it a 5 at best. Epiphone says this guitar has a select (laminate or plywood) top and IT DOES!!! Mine was built in late 2010(December) and looking at the sound hole I can clearly see three distinctive layers of wood, LAMINATE!! Those who got the Natural finish that can see the wood-grain running from the top through the sound hole either are seeing things or perhaps ended up with a solid top miraculously. Perhaps that explains why they get such a great tone from theirs. Manufacturers don�ۡ���t built one finish with a solid top and another finish with a laminate top and give both finishes the same model name and specs. I played my lowest price dreadnaught (Mitchell MD100S) which has a solid top and sells for the regular price against the Epiphone and I could clearly hear the overtones and the harmonics, beautiful ringing tones on the Mitchell even though the strings were old. Notes played on the EJ-200 Artist sounded dead, no life to them what so ever, especially the low notes. If you are a beginner, you probably can�ۡ���t tell a good sound from the bad. But it won�ۡ���t take you long before you develop a trained ear and enjoy and desire a good tone. Even though I got the Epiphone on a great sale, I couldn�ۡ���t justify keeping it for its�ۡ��� good looks alone, so I sent it back. Besides,it was defective, minor issues. There are a lot of good sounding solid tops out there for the same price . You can even buy one on sale for much less. P.S. As far as the loud volume everybody raved about, it�ۡ���s not that much louder than a Dreadnaught. Epiphone really should make this guitar with a Solid top, they sell a lot more of them. An instrument should be all about the sound and not good looks.

Great guitar

By Jay

from Bells,TN

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased this guitar just a few days ago and it has already grown on me. I traded in an old washburn that I have been playing for the past 6 years. This jumbo sounds just as good as an alvarez jumbo in my opinion that is almost triple the price. I change my strings to cleartones and then changed the bridge pins to ebony. It made a pretty big difference in the sound of it. It sounds great strumming or picking and is really a nice guitar. It seems to be built well. I paired mine with a gator hardshell case. Honestly, I would have payed more for this guitar. It is that good.

Fantastic guitar - even for experienced players!

By Kyle

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for 8 years and have played my share of gigs and other types of things for any guitar player that has been playing 8 years, and I am very impressed with this guitar. I have "upgraded" to this guitar from a Fender acoustic-electric and have no regrets whatsoever. I wanted a better acoustic sound than any acoustic-electric guitar at this price can offer me because I feel like unless you get a $4,000 acoustic-electric guitar, acoustic-electric guitar makers skimp out on how the acoustic aspect of the guitar sounds because there is a preamp in it. So I stopped using an acoustic-electric guitar and went to this one. I love the super jumbo body to this guitar because the sound is as massive as the guitar is and all the wood making up the guitar makes for great sustain and tone. So as an experienced player, I have no shame in saying that I bought a "beginners" guitar when it comes to this bad boy!

Pleasantly Surprised

By Dan

from Elkhart, IN

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I've been reading these reviews and was in the market for a new acoustic. Went to my local Guitar Center - found this on the wall. I played the true Gibson first. Then the Epiphone. I tell you, there is not a ton of difference. I've had it now for 3 weeks, play it every night for at least a half hour. Tuning is great, action is good, strings showing "dirt" already in the first positions, so I will be changing them soon. I could not believe how good this thing plays and sounds for the money. It plays way better than any Yamaha, Dean, Fender, etc in this price range. Highly recommended. Oh yeah, and it looks great too. Bought the natural finish.

Great Guitar

By Troy

from Fort Worth, Texas

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

My wife bought this for me to use at the lake, camping and just in the back yard. We thought it was a cheap throw-away but it is my favorite player. I generaly play a Gibson J-40 from 1972 but I have put it away. I now use this one for my gigs.It is wonderful. Dont let the orice scare you, it is a fine guitar fr $200.

Great Sound

By Tim Cherry Valley,CA.

from Cherry Valley, CA.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I read the reviews on this guitar and was impressed. If you are buying your first guitar you should know this about this guitar. Don't judge the sound or action when you take this out of the box. You can adjust the action yourself with the tool provided and I suggest putting new strings on straight away. This is what I did and I really love the sound and action on this guitar. My friend who has a Taylor was impressed by the tone of this guitar. You cannot buy a better guitar for the price!

Beautiful Guitar

By David

from Lynnwood, Wa.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

While looking at the 'Wall of guitars' this Super Jumbo style wouldn't quit talking to me. It's different than other guitars that I saw that day. Easy to hold and the deep tones are exactly what i was looking for. It's my first Acoustic guitar and I am sure it will become one of my best friends.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

i have been playing music for over forty years, and i have had many guitars, from cheap to very high priced, this epiphone out the blew me away,right out of the box , the action needed very little adjustments, the sound was superb, and at this price, well , you just cant beat it, it sounds just as good as my old gibson, remarkable guitar. the fit and finish was second to none, i was so impressed when i held it in my hand, you can use this guitar every day, i would have no problems gigging with the instrument. i have already put away several of my guitars , just so i can use this one.

A Monarch with the ugly moustache and price tag!!!

By Charlie

from seattle washington

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist Acoustic Guitar:

i just got this guitar for christmas today and couldn't be happier. I get great tones and very warm sounds from this guitar. Very easy to play, frets are nice and low and the action is great too. But the down side... the string it came with are the worst strings i have ever seen. So i changed them as soon as i saw them, put on some elixirs and made the guitar sound much much better. One more thing remember its a jumbo so finding a case will be hard and not too cheap, so think ahead. This guitar is a great buy.
