New for 2014 is the exclusive Epiphone Club EJ-200 Artist acoustic guitar and where better to get it from that Epiphone's No.1 European Dealer, Dawsons Music!
When the original J-200 was released in the 1930s, it delivered a much needed boost of power to the acoustic guitar. Adopted by many players - Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley to name but a few - for its exquisite tone and rich timbre, the J-200 was proclaimed "King of the Flat-tops"! Now Epiphone have built the EJ-200 in honour of that fine instrument, built to the ever-impeccable standards we've come to expect from a manufacturer with a legacy such as theirs.
As the name would suggest, the "jumbo" body shape has larger proportions than say a dreadnought for example, giving it a larger space to create huge amounts of power, as well as a greater surface area to generate miles of sustain.
The maple back and sides contribute perfectly to the EJ-200's 'big sound', building up a bright-sounding and articulate tone. The select spruce top is highly-resonant, making it the perfect soundboard. The power created by the body shape and maple, is projected with the utmost clarity. The jumbo shape is very well suited to strummers who want a big-hitting guitar that still offers plenty of distinction throughout the tonal spectrum.
A select maple neck is married to a delightful rosewood fingerboard, creating the perfect partnership to ensure each note rings out truly, with reliable levels of sustain across the entire length of the fingerboard. The neck is smooth and an absolute dream to navigate, whilst the rosewood guarantees a luxurious playing-feel, every time.
The underside of the strings is protected by an intricately detailed tortoiseshell-style pickguard, preserving the stylish ebony finish for as long as possible.
The rosewood bridge creates a seamless partnership between the strings and body, preserving the strings' sustain and offering a reassuringly secure feel. Premium die-cast tuning machines - with a 14:1 gear ratio - uphold the tuning you desire until you decide otherwise. Every last detail has been pored over to create a faithful representation of the classic J-200, and this exclusive model is sure to be snapped up quickly at such an astonishingly affordable price.
