Buttery Playability – and Big, Balanced Tone!
The Epiphone AJ-220SCE is one of Epi’s best selling acoustic-electric guitars – and for good reason. The AJ-220SCE’s Advanced Jumbo body gives you big sound, while conveying every nuance of your performance. Its bell-like shape sports a large lower bout and a smaller, rounded upper bout; this combination delivers a focused, balanced tone with robust lows complimented by a brilliant crispness in the mids and highs. And this guitar’s comfortable SlimTaper neck and elegant Venetian cutaway make fast runs in the treble range a pleasure to execute. Factor in Shadow’s Performer Tuner preamp, and the Epiphone AJ-220SCE becomes an irresistible bargain.

Beefy lows and crisp, clear midsThe Epiphone AJ-220SCE serves up crisp, clear mids and highs – a refreshing change if you’re used to a square-shouldered dreadnought. What’s up with that? Epiphone’s Advanced Jumbo body shape – first produced in the 1930s – has a big lower bout, and a smaller, rounded upper bout – with a narrow waist in between. This bell-shaped arrangement is what’s responsible for the unmistakable clarity that characterizes Epi’s Advanced Jumbo acoustics.
You’re always stage-readyWith the Epiphone AJ-220SCE, you’re always ready for the spotlight. Fitted with Shadow’s Performer Tuner preamp system, the AJ-220SCE gives you get easy plug ‘n’ play access to great amplified acoustic guitar tone. The system gives you control over master volume, as well as treble and bass EQ, a tuner/mute button, and a built-in chromatic tuner. And powered by two 2032 lithium batteries, the Shadow Performer is much lighter weight and easier to maintain than older systems that use 9V batteries.
Perfect for singer-songwriters – or in your thickest trackThe Epiphone AJ-220SCE’s big, balanced tone is ideal for singer-songwriters. If you perform solo, the AJ-220SCE is your perfect accompaniment, serving up the natural acoustic volume and bass response you need, along with the midrange clarity and bell-like highs that are so important for enhanced solo playing. With that said, the AJ-220SCE also sits beautifully in a track. Again, it’s this instrument’s inherent clarity that makes the difference. When you’ve got bass, drums, keyboards, electric guitars, and vocals all competing for attention, you certainly don’t need a muddy-sounding acoustic!
