Perfect for younger guitarists or those of you who need an affordable model more suited to travel, the Epiphone EJ-200 Coupe provides an amazing acoustic-electric tone, coupled with a more convenient size. This variant boasts a classic Vintage Sunburst finish.
High-Quality, Jumbo Style Construction
Even though the EJ-200 is smaller, it doesn’t lack presence. A marriage of an ovangkol body and solid spruce top results in a commanding, rich sound. You’ll be sure to stand out in any scenario. Increased playability is on offer due to a solid maple neck (cut to a more comfortable, rounded slim taper ‘C’ look) which features a smooth pau ferro fingerboard and a walnut centre stringer. This increases response and makes it more suitable for long sessions of both finger-picking and standard strumming.
The Gibson Jumbo was first introduced to guitarists in 1937 – a time before the introduction of the amplifier – where bold volume was not just preferable, but a musical requirement. The EJ-200 follows in the footsteps of its forefathers and grants you impressive projection, as well as the trademark hefty tone that the classic Jumbo’s were known for.
Modern engineering also collides head on with the classic look and feel found here. Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners ensure that you stay in tune and a specially compensated bone saddle and bone nut reinforce the natural resonance and tone. Combine this with a Shadow Performer Tuner HD preamp and Shadow NanoFlex HD pickup, and you’ve got yourself an amazing sounding guitar – no matter whether it’s played through an amplifier or not!
