Review Epiphone EJ200 Jumbo Acoustic Guitar
Epiphone EJ-200CE Modeled after the Gibson J-200 which was first made in 1937 and was a radical new design, bigger and bolder and louder than other guitars on the market at the time.
The budding American Popular music scene required a guitar that could project a balanced tone into larger venues.
The Gibson J-200 is one of the most popular acoustic guitars and has been used by Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Buddy Holly, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, and Pete Townshend, to name a few.

Supposed to be equipped with an eSonic pick up but I happened to find a great deal at my favorite local store, The Doo Wop Shop. It’s an EJ-200 that has been refurbished by MIRC just outside of Nashville.
They installed an Elan 4-TN pick up with pop up controls that keep them out of the way when you play and a built in tuner
This also explains the far better than factory set up the guitar had when I first picked it up. Thanks to Gabriel for that info.
