The Epiphone CE Coupe is more compact than your standard classical guitar, making it the ideal nylon-string guitar for travel while retaining incredibly powerful acoustic qualities and a fantastic choice for those who want to plug into an amp or PA! The CE Coupe features a chambered body for true classical acoustic tone when plugged in thanks to the revolutionary Shadow Panoramic SH-148-HD pickup system allowing for separate panning and EQ settings for the top three strings and the lower three strings. The preamp also includes both an Aux input (for an MP3 player) and a headphone output.

The Solid Mahogany neck has a 1960's SlimTaper D-Profile and is glued to the body with a dovetail joint. The 1.81” width Graphtech nut width is slightly smaller than a full-size Classic (CES) styled guitar. The Ebony fingerboard has a 14” radius with 19 medium frets and a single layer of white binding. The truss rod is adjustable at the sound hole.
Shadow Panoramic Electronics
The nylon string CE Coupe is powered by the revolutionary new Shadow Panoramic SH-148-HD pickup system with a panoramic function that allows a player to separately EQ and pan the top 3 string and bottom 3 strings. Controls include a Master Volume, an EQ setting for the bass strings (E, A, D), treble strings (G, B, E), and a “Phase” switch. The onboard control panel also includes a Chromatic Tuner with a 7-Segment Display plus a Low-Battery Indicator, Headphone out, and an Aux In. The Shadow PanaFlex HD pickup is placed under the Bone saddle and Ebony bridge. The battery (AAA x 2) compartment is located next to the standard ¼” output jack.
