The Epiphone AJ-220SCE may be the best value in the acoustic/electric guitar industry today. Since the introduction in 1998 of Epiphone’s Advanced Jumbo acoustics, the AJ-220SCE carries on the tradition of unequaled quality and performance for far less than you would expect to pay.
That Legendary “Advanced Jumbo” Sound
In 1936, Gibson introduced the “Advance Jumbo” (AJ) acoustic guitar. With it’s one-inch wider 16″ lower bout, rounded or sloped shoulder dreadnought shape and a 25.5″ scale length, the AJ was a powerful flat-top referred to in later Gibson literature as an “acoustic cannon.” Today, this legendary design is carried over with Epiphone’s new AJ-220SCE acoustic guitar.
Balanced Tone that Rings Like a Bell
With it’s bell-like shape featuring a larger lower bout and smaller, round upper bout, the AJ has a very 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 clear mid-range that’s never muddy like the typical square-shouldered dreadnought. The result is an AJ acoustic guitar that’s often been described as the perfect instrument for the soloist or singer/songwriter with a sound that blends with vocals. And, it’s generous and elegant Venetian cutaway enables you to access the upper frets with ease.
