Epiphone AJ 200SCE
The Epiphone AJ-200SCE is one of the best values in the acoustic guitar industry. Since it's introduction in 1998 with the premiere of Epiphone's Advanced Jumbo acoustics, the AJ-200SCE has provided quality acoustic-electric ingredients for far less than you would expect to pay.
Solid-top tone and AJ body shape
The Epiphone AJ-200SCE guitar boasts a solid Spruce top that actually improves with age. Combined with a warm-sounding select Mahogany body, its Advanced Jumbo design provides brilliant highs and powerful bass without the typical mid-range "muddiness" associated with normal dreadnoughts. And, its generous and elegant Venetian cutaway enables you to access the Epiphone guitar's upper frets with ease.
Updated with Epiphone's eSonic preamp and NanoFlex pickup system, the Epiphone AJ-200SCE guitar comes alive when plugged in. Made in cooperation with Shadow Germany, the eSonic preamp features a built-in, easy to use tuner. When engaged, the acoustic-electric guitar's output is automatically muted—with no "popping" noise—making the Epiphone guitar a perfect choice for stage use. You can even push in the "tuner" button and unplug the guitar without a loud "pop." Other controls on this state-of-the-art preamp include Master Volume, Bass, Treble, EQ Shape, Low Battery indicator and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. The preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are not only lightweight, but provide significantly longer life than old-fashioned, heavy 9V batteries. Under the PR-5E's compensated saddle, is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. Not a piezo, this unique flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics and picks up not only string vibration but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezos.
Other features on the Epiphone AJ-200SCE guitar include 14:1 ratio tuners, Rosewood fingerboard, multi-bound body and inlaid soundhole rosette. As with most Epiphone acoustics, the AJ-200SCE also features Epiphone's famous "SlimTaper" neck profile for fast and easy fingering without fatigue.
