Two 'Nano' pickups and an eSonic preamp are part of the revolutionary electronics on-board the Epiphone EJ-200CE. The Shadow pickups consist of a NanoFlex located under the saddle and a NanoMag located at the fingerboard; the pickups each produce a different tone, creating a versatile performance. The NanoFlex provides a 'truly acoustic' tone by combining both body and string tone for sonically pleasing amplification; and the NanoMag is equipped with 3 high-quality Samarium-Cobalt magnets and an active circuit, that works to provide an accurate tone with a wide dynamic range. There is also the eSonic Preamp System that features an on-board tuner, a Phase switch and a Blend control that allows players to combine the outputs from the separate pickups to find their ideal sound.
