Product Description

The Epiphone AJ-220SCE has long been one of their best selling acoustic guitars with the look, sound, and build quality that first time players and professionals expect to hear when they pick up an Epiphone. The Advanced Jumbo style was first produced at the legendary Kalamazoo factory in the 1930s has been a favorite of musicians from every field of popular music ever since. The Advanced Jumbo sound is commanding when required but it's also well balanced which makes it perfect for stage and studio. Now with a killer cutaway and Shadow's Performer Tuner(tm) preamp system, the AJ-220SCE takes yet another step above the competition.

Check out this zZounds exclusive video for more on the AJ-220SCE:


Balanced Tone that Rings Like a Bell

With its bell-like shape featuring a larger lower bout and a smaller, round upper bout, the AJ-220SCE has a focused and balanced tone. The bass is deep, rich, and loud while the highs have a crispness and brilliance that cuts through. Most noticeable however, is the AJ-220SCE's clear mid-range that's never muddy like a square-shouldered dreadnought. The Advanced Jumbo acoustic guitar is often described as the perfect instrument for the soloist or singer/songwriter with a sound that blends well with vocals. And, its generous and elegant Venetian cutaway enables you to access the upper frets with ease.

The AJ-220SCE comes with Epiphone's Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service that guarantees the guitar against defects in materials or workmanship. Now that's performance and value!

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(tm) glue and a traditional dovetail neck joint for great stability, tone, and sustain. The neck features Epiphone's classic 1960's SlimTaper(tm) 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 Performer Tuner preamp and NanoFlex(tm) pickup system for great acoustic tone when plugged in. Made by Shadow Germany, the 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.

Hardware

The AJ-220SCE includes all nickel hardware including premium sealed die-cast tuners with 14:1 ratio for tuning accuracy and stability.

"OldErn"
Overall: I've been playing for more than 50 years, but the AJ220 SCE took me by surprise. I have an EJ220 which I've enjoyed playing for several years, but the AJ220 blows it away in every sense, from materials used, to sound to electronics to price. The AJ220 has great action, and clear tones, both acoustically and plugged in. The finish is spectacularly clean, and the mahogany neck and body assure durability and stability. The electronics are crisp and clean with an onboard chromatic tuner and easy to use volume and tone controls, and it even has a phase knob. Epiphone has spent its money right, and they've set it up beautifully. It's incredibly playable right out of the box with low action devoid of any dead spots or fret buzz. It responds well whether I'm playing softy or getting on itl I play in a band with guys who play Taylor, Gibson and Collings guitar, but my Epiphone holds its own with them. No need to be ashamed with this guitar.
Style of Music: Rock, country, Christian, folk, western swing, bluegrass.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "My AJ220sce vintage sunburst"
Overall: I've had this guitar a few weeks now and I am nothing but pleased with it . It arrived without any blemishes and at first strum I thought I might have to do an adjustment on the truss rod . I started tuning it up and the high E string snapped . Dang it . Well back to zZounds to order some strings . Strings arrives just 2 days later and I changed them out . I was disappointed in the sound the new strings gave the guitar so I immediately put all the original strings back on except the the high E and B strings . All tuned up and wow , We are back to that beautiful full sound it has . I also noticed that that slight buzz was now gone . I think it was because the guitar was cold from shipping and now being all warmed up again it was back . Playability is awesome on this thing . The neck is fast with that flat finish and the action is just right for me right out of the box . This is a keeper for sure . Oh and I love the on board tuner . Its fast and easy to use . The only thing is that little plastic E thing on the pick guard keeps lifting up . I have some super glue that will fix that so not a real problem . This guitar will make you smile and just looking at it makes you want to pick it up . Oh I think the original strings are D'Addario because of the colored ends so I ordered some custom lights for it .011-.052 just haven't put them on yet .... Anyway I recommend this guitar for the price and quality . You decide .
