The advanced jumbo style acoustic guitar is the go-to acoustic for beginners as well as professionals. Over the years, a wide range of artists including Hank Williams, The Beatles, Elvis Costello, and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco have chosen a jumbo style acoustic as their main tool for writing and performing. The Epiphone AJ-15 is a great acoustic guitar with a beautiful cutaway for great upper fret access that can keep up with you and its built with over a century of expertise and skill.
Advanced Jumbos are the bread and butter of the acoustic guitar world. On stage with an acoustic band and little amplification they make a strong rhythm anchor. The AJ-15, like all of our acoustic guitars, is made tough. The AJ-15 is legendary for being easy to set up and for staying in tune so no matter how much playing time you have, it's ready to go.
Body: Best Tonewoods
The AJ-15 features a select spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breath and improve with age and with lots of playing time. So play the AJ-15 a lot! The body is made from select mahogany and the bridge is made from beautiful rosewood glued at the precise point for stable tone and intonation. Guitars endure great stress between the nut and bridge and rosewood has proven to be both a long lasting and perfect tone compliment to a spruce top. The classic style pickguard features the iconic Epiphone "E" and is set off by simple but elegant black binding.
Revolutionary Stereo Pickups
Under the AJ15’s compensated saddle is Shadow’s proprietary NanoFlex™, low-impedance pickup. Unlike a piezo, this unique flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics that not only pick up string vibrations, but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezos.
The AJ-15 mahogany neck has a 25.5" scale and features a SlimTaper™ shape and a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Our iconic Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock completes the look with premium machine heads.
