    That Legendary 'Advanced Jumbo' Sound
    In 1936, Gibson introduced the 'Advance Jumbo' (AJ) acoustic guitar. With it's one-inch wider 16 inch lower bout, rounded or sloped shoulder dreadnought shape and a 25.5 inch 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. It's generous and elegant Venetian cutaway enables you to access the upper frets with ease.
    Premium Electronics
    The AJ-220SCE is equipped with Shadow's new 'Performer™' preamp and NanoFlex™ pickup system and really comes alive when plugged in. Made by Shadow Germany, the new Performer preamp features all the controls you need to tailor the sounds of your acoustic to suit your playing style, volume level and venue size. Professional features on this state-of-the-art preamp include Master Volume, Dynamic EQ Slider control, Bass, Treble, low Battery indicator and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. It also features a Mute button which comes in handy when plugging in or unplugging your guitar. The preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are not only lightweight, but provide significantly longer life than old-fashioned, heavy 9V batteries.
    Under the AJ-220SCE's compensated saddle, is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. Not a piezo, this unique flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics and picks up not only string vibration but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezos.
    Quality Materials and Construction
    While the AJ shape plays a big role in it's signature sound, the AJ-220SCE benefits from the use of premium materials and traditional construction methods. The top is made of solid Sitka Spruce that not only sounds great right out of the box, but actually improves as it ages. Complementing this are back and sides made of select Mahogany fitted to a solid Mahogany neck. For great stability, tone and sustain, the neck is glued into the body using TiteBond™ glue and a traditional dovetail neck joint. Easy and comfortable to play, the neck shape or profile is Epiphone's classic 1960's SlimTaper™ D-shape with a smooth, fast satin finish.
    Upscale Features
    Not typically found on instruments in this price range, Epiphone packs even more value into the AJ-220SCE. Included is a bound fingerboard for a clean look and smooth feel, premium sealed die-cast tuners with 14:1 gear ratio for tuning accuracy and stability, a solid 'reverse-belly' Rosewood bridge with compensated saddle for traditional looks and accurate intonation and a tortoise-coloured pickguard with traditional metal 'E' to protect the top against pick marks.

Customer Comment Our Response
A while ago I had a £1000 guitar stolen from my car. Everyone commented how good it sounded. With little money I struggled since find something anywhere near as good to do the job. At £180, this is better. The tone is wonderful and the electronics even sound good through the not very good battery... Read More.
Well packed , a very nice guitar easy to play and looks top quality , well pleased !
An amazing guitar! Plays nicely and very happy with it. I came from a basic second-hand classical learner guitar but this was a great step up! Couldn't have found a better guitar without the help of the staff :)
