Epiphone's Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist acoustic guitar combines the power of a jumbo with the deftness of character that comes from the exquisite tonewood combination. It is easy to see why so many legendary guitarists, singers and songwriters have used this enigmatic guitar across rock, pop and country for over 75 years.
The body has been crafted from the exquisite tonewood combination that combines select maple back and sides with select spruce for the top. The crispness of the maple balances out the massive tones built up within the highly resonant jumbo body, ensuring a precise articulation cuts through from low to high. The spruce makes an excellent soundboard that projects the high-energy output with vigour. Hand-scalloped bracing to prevent buckling over extended periods of time reinforces the top. The edges of the body are skirted with a 6-ply binding to protect from unwanted nicks and chips.
Glue-in to the body is a beautiful hard maple neck, which has been shaped to the 1960s SlimTaper profile. The sturdy and responsive maple is a delight to play thanks to the slim profile. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with pearloid dot inlays to help you navigate the 20-frets with ease. The fingerboard binding creates a smooth and seamless playing feel between each fret marker.
To create a reassuringly solid playing feel, Epiphone have employed tough rosewood has been given the task of absorbing the stresses that are placed on the bridge. A black pickguard protects the lower bout of the body from unwanted pick scrapes. The headstock is home to the nickel deluxe Epiphone tuners that have an impressive 18:1 gear ratio. The two-way adjustable truss bears the EJ-200 Artist tag, whilst the headstock carries the recognisable Epiphone logo.
The Limited Edition EJ-200 Artist benefits from Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service. If you're looking for the classic jumbo sound, then look no further than this absolute beauty.
