Overview

This modern Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E Acoustic-Electric is one of rock-n-roll’s most revered guitar designs with a solid spruce top and an Epiphone Stacked P-100 pickup.

The original “J-160E” was one of the first acoustic-electric guitars on the market when it was released in 1954. Over the decades, the “J-160E” has been embraced by a wide range of artists, both classic and contemporary, such as Lightnin’ Hopkins, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller and John Lennon. In fact, the “J-160” acoustic-electric was the only guitar to appear on every Beatles album from Please Please Me through Abbey Road. Now with the Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E Acoustic-Electric, the “House of Stathopoulo” brings this vintage and hard-to-find classic into the 21st century with a solid spruce top for a limited time.

Solid Spruce: The King of Tonewoods
Just like the original, this Epiphone Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E follows the contours of the industry standard “Southern Jumbo” acoustic and features a solid spruce top with a select mahogany body. Solid spruce is the “top” of choice for premier acoustic guitars. The more you play your EJ-160E, the more open and expressive the tone—so play your EJ-160E a lot. The body top has 5-ply ivory/black binding while the select mahogany back has single-ply ivory binding. The pickguard is imitation tortoise with the '60s era “E” metal logo. The EJ-160E’s bridge is made from rosewood and has the reverse belly design familiar to “J-160E” collectors and features a compensated bone saddle.

The select mahogany neck has a comfortable “1960s” SlimTaper D-profile and is glued to the body using a dovetail joint. The neck has a 24.75 in. scale with a rosewood fingerboard with vintage-style pearloid “Trapezoid” inlays just like the original models. The fingerboard has single-ply ivory color binding and features a 12 in. fingerboard radius, 20 medium frets and a bone nut along with the Epiphone classic Sloped Dovewing headstock.

Revolutionary Electric Sound
What made the original J-160E so renown was its unique pickup system, and to bring that sound back to life for the 21st century, this Epiphone Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E features an Epiphone Stacked P-100 humbucking pickup at the end of its fingerboard. The Epiphone Stacked P-100 pickup is seated discretely between the end of the guitar's fretboard and the sound hole. Master volume and tone controls feature Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and pointers - just like vintage models - and are located on the guitar's lower bout. And each volume and tone control uses full-size 500K potentiometers.

Epiphone Heavy-Duty Hardware
All hardware, like the Epiphone "Deluxe" machine heads with a pro 18:1 tuning ratio, the Epiphone Heavy Duty 1/4 in. output jack, and pre-installed strap buttons are made from solid nickel and the Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E is set up and tuned at the factory using Epiphone 12-53 nickel strings.
