Epiphone J-200 Electro Acoustic Guitar - Aged Vintage Sunburst Gloss
Epiphones take on the Gibson classic shares its vibrant energy.
Epiphone's ‘Inspired by Gibson’ range of guitars features high-quality affordable versions of Gibson’s most-loved guitars. Each of these models is built to Gibson’s spec and approved by them, accurately capturing the look, sound and feel of the guitar it pays homage to while offering all of the amazing features and functionality that the high-price versions possess.
The Epiphone J-200 Electro Acoustic Guitar is, of course, a take on the Gibson SJ-200, a time-honoured jumbo that was first introduced in 1937 and has been brought to prominence by iconic players such as Elvis, Bob Dylan and George Harrison. The J-200 is the ideal guitar for loud, rhythmic work and sits very well in full band settings. It has marvellous projection and a bright voice ideal for sitting alongside bass and drums without being swallowed up.
Your fret hand will love the classy two-piece Maple and centrepiece Mahogany neck and its classic rounded “C” shape is comfortable and easy to play. This is topped by an Indian Laurel fretboard housing 20 medium jumbo frets and inlaid with real mother of pearl crown fret-markers.
There are some lovely details in the body too. Its back and sides are crafted from Maple and a lively Sitka Spruce top resonates with a clean and crisp sparkle. The body and neck both possess intricate and attractive binding, and the body wears the iconic moustache bridge and flower-patterned pickguard. Gold Epiphone machine heads, a bone nut and saddle and sleek ivory colour pins complete the J-200’s amazing look.
Epiphone has equipped the J-200 with a fantastic preamp system. The Fishman Sonitone OEM system works in conjunction with a discreetly positioned under-saddle pickup to reproduce this acoustics finely-balanced tones. As well as amplifying your sound, it also provides an EQ control that lets you refine your tone and a handy onboard tuner too.
