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 Pau Ferro 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.

At first I was skeptical, but now I'm impressed

Product Review

I purchased it on Sunday. It just arrived this morning (Wednesday). I chose the one in Mahogany Burst. I own four other Epiphone guitars, three electrics, and one acoustic--a Dove (which I LOVE). I have never been disappointed with any of them so I felt confident that it was at least a passable guitar that I could use as a knock-around for taking outdoors and writing songs. I will admit that at first, I was skeptical. "How in the WORLD can a 366 dollar guitar be a quality instrument?" I thought, but I was lured in by the price, the features, and the cutaway. I also liked the fact that the Mahogany Burst is not the same-ol, same-ol. I have several burst finished guitars and love them all but this guitar's finish is a nice change from the mundane. I purchased a "Scratch and Dent" guitar for a bargain price so I expected some imperfections, but when I opened the box and pulled her out of her packing shroud I couldn't find a scratch or an imperfection of any kind: the finish is beautiful. The neck straight as an arrow; the binding perfect with no gaps or waves; the neck joint perfect--nice and solid and tight; the tuners are really nice for a guitar this price too; and the fretwork was surprisingly good--they need a little polishing but there are no sharp ends or any sign of lousy fretwork. The neck binding is well done and the finish on the neck is really, really, super nice. The action was a little high but I expected that and am going to fix it to my own taste when I change the nut, saddle and bridge pins with some quality Tusk replacement parts this weekend. I also plan to polish the frets and replace the strings with a quality set of Martin Phosphor Bronze. Honestly, that's the only complaint I have. But you pretty much have to expect cheapo strings on any new guitar. Now the best part: the SOUND of this guitar is really impressive! Clear as a bell with beautiful projection and resonance. I've never played a Jumbo Body guitar--only Dreadnought--and am super impressed with this guitar's sound, even with the cheapo strings. Beautiful, Clear. Comparable to my Martin. Seriously. Comparable to a MARTIN. Honestly--no B.S.--I don't regret buying this guitar at all. Matter-of-fact, I'm really happy to add this instrument to my collection! I've been playing this guitar all day and just CAN'T put it down! You'd figure my family would be tired of hearing me play it but they love it and want me to keep playing. My fingers hurt . . .

Product Review

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.

Product Review

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

Product Review

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!
