The Epiphone J-45EC Jumbo acoustic is an affordable option for beginners and experienced players hitting the stage and studio.
The Epiphone J-45 EC Studio has long been one of Epiphone’s best selling acoustic guitars with the look, sound, and build quality that first time players and professionals expect to hear when they pick up an Epiphone. The Advanced Jumbo style was first produced at the legendary Kalamazoo factory in the 1930s has been a favorite of musicians from every field of popular music ever since. The Advanced Jumbo sound is commanding when required but it’s also well balanced which makes it perfect for stage and studio. Now with a killer cutaway and the Fishman Sonitone preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup system, the J-45 EC Studio takes yet another step above the competition.
Balanced Tone that Rings Like a Bell
With its bell-like shape featuring a larger lower bout and a smaller, round upper bout, the J-45 EC Studio has a focused and balanced tone. The bass is deep, rich, and loud while the highs have a crispness and brilliance that cuts through. Most noticeable however, is the J-45 EC Studio’s clear mid-range that’s never muddy like a square-shouldered dreadnought. The Advanced Jumbo acoustic guitar is often described as the perfect instrument for the soloist or singer/songwriter with a sound that blends well with vocals. And, its generous and elegant Venetian cutaway enables you to access the upper frets with ease.
The Epiphone J-45 EC Studio is equipped with the superb Fishman Presys II Onboard Preamp System. Fishman is an industry leader in bringing a guitar’s true acoustic tone to bigger stages. Fishman's Presys Presys II Onboard Preamp System is dedicated to providing maximum value in a small footprint. This preamp system features Volume, Tone shaping, and Phase controls; a pre-wired Fishman Sonicore pickup and low profile control knobs. Also included are a low battery indicator and a separate battery box.
Quality Materials and Construction
While the AJ shape plays a big role in it's signature sound, the J-45 EC Studio benefits from the use of premium materials and traditional construction methods. The top is made of solid Sitka Spruce that not only sounds great right out of the box, but actually improves as it ages. Complementing this are back and sides made of select Mahogany fitted to a solid Mahogany neck. For great stability, tone and sustain, the neck is glued into the body using TiteBond glue and a traditional dovetail neck joint. Easy and comfortable to play, the neck shape or profile is Epiphone's classic 1960's SlimTaper D-shape with a smooth, fast satin finish.
Not typically found on instruments in this price range, Epiphone packs even more value into the J-45 EC Studio. Included is a bound fingerboard for a clean look and smooth feel, premium sealed die-cast tuners with 14:1 gear ratio for tuning accuracy and stability, a solid "reverse-belly" Rosewood bridge with compensated saddle for traditional looks and accurate intonation and a tortoise-colored pickguard (black on Natural finish model) with traditional metal "E" to protect the top against pick marks.
