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.

I picked this guitar up via a Lightning Deal because I'd been looking for something I could take to gigs that was a compromise. I have an amazing vintage dreadnought I use at home, but I wasn't about to play gigs with it because (a) I don't want anything to happen to it, and (b) I'd never found a pickup that could do it justice. I've always been cynical about acoustic-electrics because in my experience most of them are just... meh. They're not the most versatile things; most of the ones I've played sound alright when plugged in but sound like stringed tinfoil on their own, which kinda defeats the purpose of having an acoustic-electric in the first place. But I figured, this was inexpensive enough that it wouldn't be a major loss if it only sounded good plugged-in.

I was very pleasantly surprised! The unplugged tone is actually pretty darn good. It sounds lovely, has an impressive sustain that rings for ages, and is downright pleasant to listen to. The neck is nice and dreadnought-wide (how I like 'em!) but the body is smaller and narrower, which makes it much more usable as a gigging instrument. The default strings are pretty reasonable--I'll probably change 'em out but that's because I like my strings ridiculously heavy. It's reasonably well-balanced--a little heavy towards the top half because of the bigger neck and headstock, I think.

The neck is a little sticky but plenty playable. I would probably try to clean it up and make it faster if I wasn't mostly an open-chording singer-songwriter, but out of the box, it works just fine for me. I've had no problems with fret buzz or the action so far.

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.

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.

Ok, so it's an Epiphone and because of that it doesn't have the same stigma around it as an actual Gibson or other American made acoustic guitar would have, but if you are on a budget and looking for a fun guitar, this is a good choice. The action was decent right out of the box. The neck reminds me of my Les Paul's, nice and chunky. I find it very easy to switch from my LP Studio to this guitar and back without any adjustment period. The built in tuner is great and I've found myself using it rather than pulling out my Snarks or plugging into my Boss tuner. The battery life has been great so far. Another note with the electronics is that the phase control (which minimizes strings starting to resonate when plugged into an amp) works well. I have a very similar Fender electric acoustic and it doesn't have this feature and I find the strings start vibrating on their own all the time. The finish is beautiful and the fret work is actually decent. This has become one of my favorite go-to acoustic guitars because I don't worry about dings or scratches like I do with my guitars that cost much more.Read more ›
