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!

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.
The thing that first caught my eye about this acoustic-electric, is its natural, light finish. This jumbo guitar is substantial in size, looks, and quality; it "feels" like a much more expensive guitar and is very solid. Of course, the sound is the most important thing about any musical instrument, and this is the first stock acousti-electric guitar I've ever seen with TWO pickups: one under the saddle and one at the end of the neck. The eSonic2 preamp system, which I believe is exclusive to Epiphone, is much better than the Fishman, which seems to be the standard of the industry for acoustic-electrics including Martin guitars. With two pickups, and an analog control for each, plus a "slider" to blend them, you should be able to get the perfect balance of EQ/Treble & Bass you desire. It also has a phase button which should reduce/eliminate potential acoustic feedback and is explained in scientific detail in the manual. The on-board tuner is an easy-to-read colorful LED lights perfect for quick, on stage tuning in good or bad lighting. Finally, another surprise I got when I received my guitar, is that it comes with Grover tuning pegs . . . my personal preference and the best (in my opinion).
