Product Description

The Epiphone AJ 220SCE Acoustic Electric Guitar has long been one of Epiphone's 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 and 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 new Performer Tuner preamp system, the Epiphone AJ 220SCE takes yet another step above the competition.

Epiphone AJ 220SCE Acoustic Electric Guitar Features:

  • Made of solid Sitka Spruce that sounds great right out of the box, as well as, improves with age
  • Bell shape gives is a clear mid-range that's never muddy
  • Features Epiphone's SlimTaper D-profile with a smooth, fast, satin finish that's easy to play
  • Equipped with Shadow's Performer Tuner preamp and NanoFlex pickup system for great acoustic tone
  • Nickel hardware including premium sealed die-cast tuners with 14:1 ratio for tuning accuracy and stability

Balanced Tone that Rings Like a Bell

With its bell like shape featuring a larger lower bout and a smaller, round upper bout, the Epiphone 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.

Quality Materials, Classic Construction

While the AJ shape plays a big role in its signature sound, the Epiphone 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 inch scale and is glued to the body using TiteBond glue and a traditional dovetail neck joint for great stability, tone, and sustain. The neck features Epiphone's classic 1960's SlimTaper D-profile with a smooth, fast, satin finish that's easy to play.

The bound rosewood fingerboard has a 12 inch radius with a 1.68 inch 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 Epiphone 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 Epiphone AJ 220SCE is equipped with Shadow's new Performer Tuner preamp and NanoFlex pickup system for great acoustic tone when plugged in. Made by Shadow Germany, the new 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.

Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware

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

OUTSTANDING
What is your opinion of this product?
I am so glad I bought this.I was going to get the AJ 200 but after reading the details on the 220 it seemed like the best buy to me.The construction is top notch,finish is flawless,action and intonation is perfect and price can't be beat...it may not be as flashy as the 200 but this instrument should not be overlooked because it is one of the best deals out there !

OK, for the price.
What is your opinion of this product?
The "J" is for JUMBO. Good enough guitar for the price point... honestly, it's more of a $200 level guitar. Can be made better with a few alterations. Action is more that "too high", from nut to bridge. Add a quality set of tuners and strings and you have a playable guitar. Not a slam on AMS, they hold up their end, but Epi could do better on this one,.

Fantastic acoustic guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
My AJ 220 SCE EPIPHONE acoustic guitar arrived well packaged, and in flawless condition. I was surprised at how nicely set-up it was right out of the box. The shadow Nanoflex system does a great job on both of my amplifiers, a Fender Mustang and a Fender Acoustasonic 15. My biggest joy is the intonation, which is spot on. I highly recommend this Epiphone Acoustic!

Great guitar, so-so QC
What is your opinion of this product?
I played a used AJ220SCE in a guitar store and fell in love. So I bought a new one from AMS on Sunday, got it today (FAST shipping!) was overall happy with the guitar, fret ends smooth, great sound, accurate Shadow tuner/pre-amp, tuning keys very good. my one and only problem and the reason I rated it a 4 is, the "G" string fretted out from the 5th fret up....a 1/2 hour or so setting the neck and leveling the frets and this is a worthy player. just a shame that a company like Epiphone missed the mark in QC.

Solid practical instrument for Beginers
What is your opinion of this product?
I already owned a tobacco sunburst of this model that has a beautiful tone and smooth action and true tone up and down the neck. I bought this one for my 12 year old grand daughter. I find that students do better on a better quality instrument that they don't have to fight with. Learning is tough enough for them with out having to fight with an instrument that is tough to play. This model is a much better instrument to start them on than less expensive models and they tend to succeed more often from this approach. Now the guitar I just purchased (the Black One) did not perform as well as the first one. The frets were roughly polished and I had to do some minor filing and polishing to get the action correct. Seems the inspection process on this one was not what it should've been. After some minor touch up though it has the tone and play ability it should have had right out of the box. Not a big deal but would have been nice if it had been set up and inspected a little better.

"I love this thing"
Your general opinion of this product.
I love this guitar. I bought one right out of the store, got it home and took out the bridge shim, lowered the action and presto, I lost three frets at the 13, 14 15th fret. I replaced a new shim and regained all but the 13 and 14th on the high E. The frets were horrible at the ends but a little smooth filing and I smoothed it out, so it plays nice with d addario 10-47 strings. The acoustic volume is awesome and has that great slope shouldered Gibson sound. I'm happy now, but I must say beware of the necks on these things.
