Product Description

Product Description

When you're playing the Epiphone AJ-220SCE acoustic-electric guitar, you've got a piece of history in your hands. First produced at Epi's legendary Kalamazoo factory in the 1930s, the Advanced Jumbo body style gives you beefy bottom end, clarity in the mids, and crisp bell-like highs. This is a perfect axe if you're a singer-songwriter, but the AJ-220SCE works nicely in a thick track as well. Its SlimTaper neck and cool-looking Venetian cutaway give you great playability and access to upper frets. And it sports Shadow's superb Performer Tuner preamp, so you're always ready to hit the stage. This guitar's an incredible value, too. Check out the Epiphone AJ-220SCE - you'll love it!

From the Manufacturer

Epiphone AJ-220SCE Acoustic Guitar

Solid Spruce Top and Professional Shadow Preamp System

The AJ-220SCE has long been one of Epiphone's best selling acoustic guitars with the look, sound, and build quality that first time players and professionals expect to hear when they pick up an Epiphone. The Advanced Jumbo style was first produced at the legendary Kalamazoo factory in the 1930s and has been a favorite of musicians from every field of popular music ever since. The Advanced Jumbo sound is commanding when required but it's also well balanced which makes it perfect for stage and studio. Now with a killer cutaway and Shadow's new Performer Tuner preamp system, the AJ-220SCE takes yet another step above the competition.

Balanced Tone that Rings Like a Bell

With its bell-like shape featuring a larger lower bout and a smaller, round upper bout, the AJ-220SCE has a focused and balanced tone. The bass is deep, rich, and loud while the highs have a crispness and brilliance that cuts through. Most noticeable however, is the AJ-220SCE's clear mid-range that's never muddy like a square-shouldered dreadnought. The Advanced Jumbo acoustic guitar is often described as the perfect instrument for the soloist or singer/songwriter with a sound that blends well with vocals. And, its generous and elegant Venetian cutaway enables you to access the upper frets with ease.

Quality Materials, Classic Construction

While the AJ shape plays a big role in its signature sound, the AJ-220SCE benefits from the use of premium materials and traditional construction methods. The top is made of solid Sitka Spruce that not only sounds great right out of the box but actually improves with age and lots of playing time. The back and sides are made of select mahogany. The solid mahogany neck has a 25.5" scale and is glued to the body using TiteBond glue and a traditional dovetail neck joint for great stability, tone, and sustain. The neck features Epiphone's classic 1960's SlimTaper D-profile with a smooth, fast, satin finish that's easy to play. The bound rosewood fingerboard has a 12" radius with a 1.68" nut, 20 medium jumbo frets, and dot inlays. The classic rosewood "reverse-belly" bridge has a compensated saddle for traditional looks and accurate intonation. And last but not least, the AJ-220SCE has a tortoise-style pickguard with traditional metal "E" to protect the top against pick marks on the beautiful Natural finish.

Shadow Premium Electronics

The AJ-220SCE is equipped with Shadow's new Performer Tuner preamp and NanoFlex pickup system for great acoustic tone when plugged in. Made by Shadow Germany, the new Performer Tuner preamp features all the controls you need to tailor the sounds of your AJ-220SCE to suit your playing style, volume level, and venue size. Professional features on this state-of-the-art preamp include a built-in Chromatic Tuner, Master Volume, Bass, Treble, Low Battery indicator, and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. It also features a Tuner/Mute button which comes in handy when plugging in or unplugging your guitar. The Performer Tuner preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are not only lightweight, but provide significantly longer life than old-fashioned, heavy 9-volt batteries. Under the AJ-220SCE's compensated saddle is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex low-impedance pickup. Unlike a piezo, the NanoFlex's unique and flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics and picks up not only string vibrations but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezo pickups.

Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware

The AJ-220SCE includes all nickel hardware including premium sealed die-cast tuners with 14:1 ratio for tuning accuracy and stability.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

The Epiphone AJ-220SCE isn't a $3,000 guitar but at a tenth of the cost you'll find a quality instrument that far surpasses its price provided you understand a few simple rules.

First, acoustic guitars often vary wildly in quality and tone even among the same model. The AJ-220SCE is no exception to that rule. I played three different AJ-220SCEs and one was an absolute dud. It physically looked identical and had no obvious defects yet the sound was dull, thin and hardly worthy of $100 let alone $300. That said, I've also played high-end Martin and Gibson acoustics that absolutely blew me away and others that were so bad they should be ashamed to charge for the instrument at all. This particular AJ-220SCE was certainly better than your usual solid-top/laminate back guitars out there for $300. So the lesson here is that you can only know if a guitar is right for you by PLAYING IT. Lean on Amazon's return policy or play one in your local shop before ordering!

Second, remember that at $300 you have lots of options including excellent guitars from Guild, Washburn, Takamine and a variety of other manufacturers. For $300 you may be able to get an all-solid acoustic such as the Epiphone Masterbilt series, the Seagull Maritime series or others. You likely won't get electronics at that price unless you're willing to skip the comfort of a warranty and buying new from a reputable source.

Now for the features...

The AJ-220SCE has some really exceptional features you often won't find at this price including a bound fretboard, higher-quality Gotoh tuners, a solid-spruce top and an outstanding Shadow Nanoflex pickup and Performer pre-amp combination. The handsomely bound fretboard was surprisingly paired with perfectly trimmed frets--no sharp spots here.
