Epiphone presents the new J-15 Acoustic/Electric Outfit, a superb professional dreadnought guitar featuring a Select Spruce top with classic cutaway, state of the art Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp and NanoFlex under saddle pickup system, plus a hard case. Dreadnought acoustic guitars like the J-15 are renowned for their commanding volume and full tone that’s perfect for singer songwriters or for leading a band. And like every Epiphone, the J-15 comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Guarantee.
Select Spruce Top
The J-15 has a Select Spruce top with 5-ply black and white binding and a graceful cutaway for easy access to the upper frets. Spruce is classic tone wood for powerful acoustic guitars and will mellow with age and playing time to reveal a distinctive character. The more you play the J-15, the better it will sound. The body and neck are made from Select Mahogany. The SlimTaper neck has an easy-to-play ‘D’ profile and is glued to the body with a classic dovetail joint. The neck features 20 medium frets, a standard 25.5 inch scale, and a Poplar Composite fingerboard with pearloid ‘Dot’ inlays.
The J-15 has a ‘reverse belly’ Rosewood bridge and an Epiphone styled imitation tortoise pickguard with a metal ‘E’ logo as seen on vintage Epiphone acoustics like the Texan and Caballero.
Plug in with Shadow Electronics
When you’re ready to plug in, the J-15 features Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp and Shadow NanoFlex under saddle pickup system. Shadow is the world leader in acoustic guitar electronics. Now you can hear the true sound of your guitar on any size stage. Made by Shadow, the new Performer Tuner preamp features all the controls you need to tailor the sounds of your J-15 to suit your playing style, volume level, and venue size.
Pro features include a built-in Chromatic Tuner, Master Volume, EQ controls for Bass and Treble, a Low Battery indicator, and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. A handy Tuner/Mute button allows you to plug or unplug your guitar silently.
The Performer Tuner preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are lightweight and provide significantly longer life than heavy 9-volt batteries. Under the J-15's compensated saddle is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex low-impedance pickup. Unlike a harsh sounding piezo pickups, the NanoFlex’s unique and flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics that pick up not only string vibrations but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone.
