Overview

The Epiphone EJ-200SCE Left-Handed pushes the "King of the Flat Tops" into the future with a spectacular cutaway for total upper fret access plus the eSonic2 preamp system. Originally introduced in 1937, the J-200 style set a standard for guitar excellence that others have been trying to match ever since. Today-over 70 years later-the legacy of the "King of the Flat Tops" lives on in Epiphone's EJ 200SCE, which gives lefties a chance to enjoy how right this guitar sounds both plugged and unplugged.

The EJ-200 style is simply the world's most famous acoustic guitar, known equally for its majestic look and focused, complex sound. When the EJ-200 was first introduced, it immediately filled a need for a deeper, more balanced and powerful acoustic instrument that could project over stage and radio. The J-200 was a radical new design, bigger and bolder than any previous guitar, capable of projecting well beyond that of any other acoustic on the market-a fact that still holds true today with the EJ-200SCE.

Some of the greatest rhythm guitarists and singers of the last century made the J-200 their primary acoustic instrument on stage (and for record covers, too) including Don Everly, Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Presley, Gram Parsons, Buddy Holly, and Pete Townshend. The EJ-200SCE gives you everything great from this iconic and historic guitar without the headaches or the price tag of an original plus a modern pickup system so you can be heard anywhere.

Like all Epiphone instruments, the EJ-200SCE is covered by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and the Gibson Family of Instrument's 24/7/365 customer service. Pick up an EJ-200SCE today and become a believer in the King of the Flattops!

This is one of the most beautiful guitars I have ever seen and now own. Several years ago I saw Alex Lifeson of Rush play the Gibson SJ Model, and I thought, what a pretty guitar. But then I went to the Guitar center several months later, and I got to play it. Not only was it visually stunning, but the sound that projected from the instrument was insane! However, I don't have 4k + for a guitar, but it sure was cool to play. Years down the road I saw the cutaway version of an EPI, but sadly they didn't have it in a left handed model. (It's so frustrating to be a left-handed player!! ) I kept looking and looking for EPI to put one out on the left hand side, and I had confidence they would make a good sounding guitar for the money. I have a Les Paul EPI that I love and would never give away, because of the way it plays and how dependable and good looking it is. Well, come Labor day, I decided to go on line and see what Musicians Friend had for sale. There it was! A left-handed EJ-200 (Blonde) with the Preamp built in. I couldn't believe it! I immediately called and ordered it with it's matching case, which is pretty nice and the guitar fits inside it like a glove. The Guitar was exactly was what I thought it would be and more. Of course Gibson uses some prettier woods, but come on....an Epi at a tenth of the cost. It is incredible to look at, and to play. It has an amazing sound to it, both plugged in or not. The deep projection of the guitar is beautiful to listen to, and the playability is amazing. The action almost feels like my Les Paul, and the neck has a nice shape making it easy to play bar chords without making you hand tired. Since the EPI is set up in the U.S. they do a great job doing so.. There is nothing that I would need to have adjusted. My only recommendation is to put on a set of Elixir strings that will not only make the guitar sound great, but they make it even easier to play the guitar and the strings last forever!! The Grover tuner's are extremely accurate and they stay in tune. I haven't had a chance to play around too much with the different settings on the preamp to hear the difference of the pick ups. I just kept the slider in the middle so that both pickups were active. The Tuner is fairly accurate and helpful when you need to do a quick tune up in a loud enviroment. All in all, the Guitar is everything that I could ever want in a guitar. The quality that was put into place while this guitar was being made was excellent. I haven't found any blemishes or nicks. Finally unless you are a professional musician, or you have the money to be a serious collector, then I really don't think you need to plunk down 4k on a Gibson (that has been getting a bad rap for quality issues) when you can have a beautiful guitar for a tenth of the price. I hope your experience is good as mine has been with this fine instrument.

Bought the first one, lightly used. Came in with a shorted pickup. Horrible ground noise. Musician friend gladly sent me a NEW replacement. It came in with a large damaged area on the face that looks as though it has been touched up and re-sprayed. And, the new guitar pickup has no 6th string response and 5th string is muted from the pickup. These guitars are very beautiful in the pics but Lordy, what gives with the quality control. I give up. Savings are not worth it. Will probably keep it to remind me what NOT to do when buying guitars. Go cheap. Musician friends bent over backwards for me the first time. I feel bad about sending another one back. Would not won't the same type guitar again, anyway.

      Looked great and almost in tune right out of the box. I was really impressed with the built in tuner. Sounds great on it's own or plugged in. Found a hard case with no problem at the local store.

          I am not going to bore you with nit-picking details. This guitar has more clarity and sustain than any other acoustic I have ever played. It blows away my Taylor GS Mini. If you can handle the big body, it is an incomparable value for a lefty. A lefty cutaway with this sound and build should cost $1500.00. Get yours now..it is a limited edition and they are no longer being made.

            Love this guitar but disappointed in Guitar Center. GC said they checked guitar but I found pieces of wood rattling around inside guitar after I picked it up at store. Fortunately, guitar sounds great and plays really well.

                This guitar is amazing for the price tag. It plays wonderful acoustic or plugged in. I love the eSonic2 pickup which gives a wide EQ range depending on the room.

                BRAVO ;)

                Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-200SCE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                My first impression was WOW! what a well crafted guitar for the price..The eSonic2 pickup system is more versatile & sounds better than my other acoustic with an internal mic ( which cost three times the amount ) when plugged into my PA. The jumbo body rings out fine with good tones for a guitar with solid top only. I immediately went to the store to buy a hard case to protect this beauty.

                            This is a great guitar for the money...and its available in lefty. It is frustrating trying to find a quality lefty built guitar...it is either entry-level plywood, turn a right-handed guitar upside down, or order a custom shop..$$$$. The build quality is excellent, the finish is perfect...it sounds good through an amp or "unplugged". I do plan to have it set up to get the string height down a little, but it is very playable out o the box.

                            I would like to have a left-handed ej-200 without the cutaway, but this is a very good option. Fingers are crossed that they will come out with one soon...should be easier to build than the cutaway version. Good job Epiphone!

                                When Epiphone says "limited edition" they mean it so buy this lefty before they discontinue it. I've owned this guitar for two months. A beautiful guitar with a big sound either acoustic or with pickups. I'm a pro Blues piano player/singer & gig 2-4 times a week & sometimes play guitar. I own several acoustics & electrics but this has become my go to guitar. It has a very slim profile neck which is perfect for me. Some praise the stock strings but I swiched them out immediately. A tusk bridge & nut & a pro setup makes this guitar really sing. Read the right handed reviews for the EJ-200CE for more info but I say buy it before it's gone.
