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.

This is a awesome guitar. All the fitting and finish is great. It has a satin finished neck so your hands slide easier than a gloss. One of the best tuner/preamp systems available. Solid spruce top and mahogany sides and bottom and a slim tapered neck. The sound is better than the Dove, Texan or Hummingbird, it rings like a bell from low to high range. No muddy mid tones that is typical af a square-shouldered dreadnought. If you play this epiphone beside guitars that cost thousands it will be difficult if not impossible to notice any sound difference.

Great tight focused mids- punchy but woody. Balanced and complex without any harshness. Fit finish and action are top notch. The satin neck on the gloss body is a nice touch. Tuner is fast and accurate and pickup sounds good. Hands down one of the best values in the epiphone acoustic range. Easily recommended to almost anyone.

I did adjust and lightly sand the frets above where the neck glues in at the cutaway and polished the frets w/0000 steel wool and smoothed the ends of the frets, BUT!!!!!, this guitar now plays and sounds great!!!! I also have a Martin D35 that plays and sounds great, but I'm playing this one more. Has good base, mid and treble tonal range, It is as loud as D35 Martin, but more of a Gibson sound? Do some little adjustments or have someone (a luthier) do this and this $300 guitar will compete with any acoustic in the back rooms of the Guitar Stores Acoustic guitars ie. well over $1000 guitars. The first AJ-220SCE came in bad, strings laying on the 12-15th fret American Music paid to have it shipped back and sent another one that I believe to be a terrific value. Can't believe that Epi will be selling these guitars this cheap forever, but if they do GREAT!!

UPDATE,,, 16 months later, still playing this guitar every day and loving it. I also have a great Martin D35 and purchased two Recording Kings and played them a lot for a while, but after a few months picked up the AJ again and now it gets played the most. All four guitars are nice but the AJ has a slight edge on the others.

I have two guitars acoustic, and I really like this guitar. The sound is very nice. It is so worth it to buy this guitar in that price. When I connect to the amplifier, the sound is very smooth. I fully recommended all of you guys to buy this guitar. Amazing guitar that I have ever had.

I spent several hours in my local Guitar Chain playing guitars in the $250.00 to $400.00 range and the Epiphone AJ-220 was the winner. I purchased the violin sunburst model and the finish is flawless. The action on this guitar is superb, the best I have played on a an acoustic in this price range. The AJ-220 shines when it is plugged into an amp, it is not muddled and projects well. It also comes with a built in tuner and a "phase" button which stops feedback when it occurs. I would recommend guitar to both beginners and experienced players that don't want to take their Martins or Taylor's to gigs. The reason I did not rate it 5 stars is the frets are very thin and with hard playing they will sooner or later need to be replaced.

I bought this guitar at a local guitar center and let me tell you it is definitely worth the money,I found myself trying out EVERYTHING,even the guitars outside of my budget like a j-45 and while this isn't one it could hold a candle to it,a jumbo body will give you PLENTY of volume,hell I went to a trip to my grandparents,my grandma is very hard of hearing and even she told me"Mijo quiet down!" I would recommend this to the inexperienced and the experienced player-Eli(playing for 6 months so far)
