Patterned after the Gibson J-160E acoustic-electrics that were perennial Beatles workhorses, the Epiphone EJ160E John Lennon Electro-Acoustic guitar features an advance Jumbo, sloped-shoulder body shape, solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a chunky solid mahogany neck and a smooth, solid rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
John Lennon’s favourite Gibson guitar was the J-160E, following in its footsteps, the Epiphone EJ160E uses the same distinct body shape and design. Built from mahogany, the EJ160E provides rich, warm tones that begin to mature over time. Just like the vintage model Lennon himself played, the EJ-160 features a rosewood bridge with a synthetic bone saddle, providing great string tension and stability, and proven to be an ideal combination when paired with the solid spruce top.
The impeccable rosewood fingerboard is adorned with handsome ‘split parallelogram’ inlays that are commonly found on many Gibson and Epiphone guitars. The Epiphone EJ-160E’s mahogany neck has the fat, rounded feel of many late 50’s era Gibson electrics, offering extreme durability and comfort.
Electronics & Hardware
The Epiphone EJ160E features a mini humbucking pickup, discreetly seated between the end of the guitars fretboard and soundhole for maximum projection and dynamics. The volume and tone knobs that control the pickup are located on the guitar’s lower bout, as they would be on a standard electric guitar.
Other features include a vintage style dovetail headstock fitted with six Kluson style machine heads in a 3-a-side formation, offering precise and accurate tuning capabilities. Next to the end of the fretboard is the famous John Lennon signature, adding real authenticity to this beautiful guitar.
