Jumbo Maple & Spruce Construction

The EJ-200 is known as 'The King of the Flat Top Guitars', and provides a huge sound with plenty of sustain. The back and sides are crafted from maple, which delivers a beautifully bright sound that dominates in the mid and treble ranges. The maple is topped with solid spruce which enhances the tone with crisp highs and tight lows, to create an overall balanced sound packed with plenty of punch.

Maple Neck Paired With Rosewood Fingerboard

The EJ-200 features a smooth maple neck which enables fast and comfortable playing, ideal for a variety of playing styles and techniques. The maple neck yields bright and twangy tones as well as excellent clarity and ringing sustain, while the rosewood fingerboard creates bright sounds with warm lows.

Based On Iconic Gibson J200

The Gibson J-200 was introduced back in 1937, when it was first called the 'Super Jumbo' with the intention of replacing the 'Advanced Jumbo'. The J-200 was known as the 'King Of The Flat Tops', with its deep, focused and extremely responsive acoustic tone and stunningly unique appearance. It provided artists of the 30's American music scene with a big and bold acoustic guitar that could project tones ideal for country and western styles. Many music greats have also wielded a J-200 during their careerm including Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley and Pete Townshend who used a J-200 style to compose The Who's Tommy.
