The Epiphone AJ-100CE Electro Acoustic Guitar is a reliable and affordable instrument with a rich and expressive sound. Featuring a select Spruce top and select Mahogany back and sides, along with the unique "Advanced Jumbo" body shape, the guitar delivers a powerful yet focused sound ideal for players of all styles. The guitar's ergonomic cutaway provides easy access to the upper frets, while the versatile Shadow Nanoflex™ preamp system offers incredible acoustic tones when plugged in.
The guitar's bell-like "Advanced Jumbo" body is similar in size to the popular Dreadnought profile, but with a larger lower bout and smaller, more rounded upper bout. This gives it a wonderfully balanced tone ideal for both stage and studio, with a powerful low end and crisp, clear highs. The select Spruce top adds brightness and definition to the guitar's sound, perfectly complimented by the mellow warmth of the Mahogany back and sides, making this guitar ideal for virtually any situation.
The AJ-100CE is equipped with Shadow Electronics' innovative NanoFlex™ pickup system. This low impedance pickup rests beneath the AJ-220CE's compensated saddle, and simultaneously picks up both the vibrations of the strings and the movement of the soundboard, providing unparalleled natural-sounding acoustic tones without the harshness of conventional piezoelectric pickups.
The Epiphone AJ-100CE electro acoustic guitar has made the coveted AJ Series model more affordable than ever. Combining highly refined construction methods with select tonewoods, and superb electronics, it is clear to see why the users of this model reads like a 'Who’s Who' of music legends including: The Beatles, Elvis Costello and Hank Williams. The AJ can boast having been the go-to guitar for writing and performing for some of the music’s heavyweights, with an appeal than spans genres as well as decades.
It is with good reason that AJs (Advanced Jumbos) are used the world over. The large body projects sound exquisitely, and is constructed to survive the perils of life on the road. The cutaway design of this electro-acoustic also enables easy access to the upper frets. Another important feature of any live performance guitar is its ability to stay in tune. The Epiphone AJ-100CE electro-acoustic guitar is easy to set up and is ready when you are, providing rock-solid performance, and reliable intonation.
Once you start playing the Epiphone AJ-100CE electro-acoustic you won’t want to put it down. The select spruce top responds well to forceful playing styles, providing articulate and powerful projection from a wood that only improves with age. The back and sides of the AJ-100CE is built using select mahogany, which creates a focused mid to low-end power that is rich and mellow.
Ensuring the Epiphone AJ-100CE guitar's stable intonation and tone is a rosewood bridge. Used because of its strength, this bridge is glued-in at a precise point to maximise its ability to cope with the guitar's stress points. As it is made from rosewood, the bridge also offers the perfect tonal compliment to the spruce top. Offsetting the Epiphone AJ-100CE's natural finish is a black binding and a black pickguard adorned with the classic Epiphone ‘E’.
To maximise strength and comfort the Epiphone AJ-100CE electro acoustic guitar features a 25.5” scale mahogany neck with a SlimTaper profile to keep up with fast players. Topping this is a rosewood fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl dot inlays. Completing the AJ-100 is Epiphone’s sloped Dovewing headstock with premium die-cast tuners.
The Epiphone AJ-100CE electro-acoustic guitar's compensated saddle is fitted with Shadow's NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. The flexible nature of the sensing material represents the timbre of the body beautifully. The string vibrations, top and body vibrations are all captured to create an accurate representation of the AJ-100CE's tone.
