The FT-350SCE is Epiphones first self-tuning electro-acoustic guitar, and it uses the innovative Min-ETune Automatic Tuner System to achieve this. The Min-ETune allows users to select between 12 factory presets and 6 user programmable presets, to ensure that players can spend more time performing and less time tuning. The factory presets include Standard, DADGAD, Low D, Drop D, Eb, Double Drop D, Open E, Open A, Open D, Open G, Dobro and All 4th; to provide players with a range of tunings that will be sure to suit their own style. The Min-ETune can also be tuned to match other instruments, such as a piano; for an even more versatile performance.
The Epiphone FT-350SCE Guitar is equipped with premium Shadow Electronics, including a Performer Tuner Preamp and a NanoFlex Pickup System. The preamp allows acoustic players to plug in and project their tones beautifully, as well as providing access to a convenient built in chromatic tuner, and shaping controls including 2-Band EQ, Master Volume, a Tuner/Mute button and a Phase Switch that cuts the feedback, without affecting the guitar's tone. The NanoFlex Pickup is located under the saddle, and it provides a 'truly acoustic' tone by combining both body and string tone for sonically pleasing amplification.
Crafted with mahogany back and sides, and topped with solid sitka spruce, the Epiphone FT-350SCE Electro-Acoustic Guitar delivers an array of sonically pleasing tones to suit different playing styles. Mahogany provides a rich, sonic warmth, with plenty of resonance and it offers thick, meaty mids; deep, woody lows; and good amounts of bite. The mahogany combined with the sitka spruce top, extends the mahogany's tonal range to enhance the overall sound with bright, tight and expressive characteristics. The sitka spruce top also delivers wide dynamic response, as well as a direct and focused tone.
The 3-piece neck is strong, sturdy and can cope with excellent amounts of fast and aggressive shredding. The 3-piece neck is also more resistant to warping than a classic 1-piece, which ensures a long lasting neck. The maple provides a bright and twangy tone, with good sustain whilst the rosewood fingerboard brings soft and warm articulated tones.
