Epiphone's J-200 is a stellar re-imagining of the world-famous Gibson SJ-200, the "King of Flat-Tops." With its gorgeous tone and stunning vintage aesthetic, this acoustic is an excellent choice for players seeking that vintage Gibson look, sound, and feel.
The Epiphone J-200 sports a solid figured maple body, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a two-piece maple neck with a mahogany center strip, giving it an outstanding tone with tight lows, punchy mids, and crystal-clear highs. Its Super Jumbo shape provides plenty of projection and resonance, making it excellent for louder performance settings. Players will also love its rounded "C" shape neck that feels excellent in hand - not too thick, not too thin, just right for everything from gentle chording to blistering fingerpicked melodies.
For those who need a little extra 'oomph,' the J-200 comes equipped with a Fishman Sonicore pickup that allows players to plug into their favorite amp without sacrificing tone. It also features Volume and Tone controls conveniently mounted inside the soundhole, allowing players to dial in their preferred tones on the fly.
Complete with a Moustache bridge with curved block inlays, a Crown headstock inlay, Graduated Crown mother of pearl fingerboard inlays, and a J-200 style pickguard with two-color graphics, the Epiphone J-200 offers that coveted Gibson SJ-200 sound and style at a fraction of the cost.
