The essential cutaway electric version of the “King of the Flattop Guitars”, the Epiphone EJ-200CE is unrivaled in big, acoustic/electric sound without sacrificing upper fret access and classic Super Jumbo style.
Stage and Road Tested: Multiple #1 hit songwriter and popular new major Country artist, Jamey Johnson, still tours with his Epiphone 1995 model EJ-200CE, dubbed “Ole Maple” along with a new model as “back-up”.
Built From Tradition: The EJ-200CE is crafted with a Solid Spruce top on a big, crisp-sounding Maple Super Jumbo body fixed to matching set, Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard. Treasured for its classic Super Jumbo appointments such as “crown” fretboard inlay and “mustache” Rosewood bridge, it also has the famous flower motif pickguard that completes the authentic design, dependable Grover® Machine heads in Gold. Big and Better: This beauty is voiced by the exclusive Epiphone eSonic2 preamp from Shadow Electronics® of Germany, complete with the revolutionary Shadow® NanoFlex and NanoMag pick-up system for incredible electrified sound.
Shadow® Innovation: the Shadow NanoFlex pickup, which provides precise tonal fidelity is far superior in vibration transfer and amplification than more expensive, competing systems. The Shadow® NanoFlex pickup is very thin and flexible allowing it to lie perfectly in the saddle tray to give the best possible contact from the saddle and the bridge. The Shadow® NanoMag pickup is a revolutionary magnetic acoustic design featuring three samarium magnets that captures a wider, more balanced frequency range, as well as harmonics lost by regular magnetic pickups. The NanoFlex and NanoMag units then work with the rim-mounted, Epiphone eSonic2 preamp system, also an exclusive design from Shadow Electronics® of Germany, which then outputs in a mono blend or from stereo ¼” jacks. The eSonic2 also comes equipped a convenient built-in electronic tuner, which is very user-friendly and also acts as a mute. The controls include a Blend fader, which increases or decreases the amount of the NanoFlex and NanoMag output, separate NanoFlex and NanoMag EQ knobs, a Master Volume control, a Phase or “anti-feedback” switch, and the digital Tuner control. The system is powered by two easily replaceable 2032 Lithium batteries that last many times longer than the dreaded 9 Volt.
