Epiphone presents the new Limited Edition EJ-160E Electro Acoustic, in a timeless Vintage Sunburst finish.
One of rock n rolls most revered guitar designs now featuring a Solid Spruce top with an Epiphone Stacked P-100 pickup.
The original J-160E was one of the first acoustic guitars on the market with an electric pickup when it was released in 1954. Over the decades, the J-160E has been embraced by a wide range of artists both classic and contemporary like Lightin Hopkins, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller, and of course John Lennon.
Re-issued for 2016, the Limited Edition EJ-160E brings this vintage and hard-to-find classic into the 21st century with a Solid Spruce top and Select Mahogany body for a limited time only. The characteristics of Solid Spruce allow it to breathe naturally over time as the tonewood 'opens up'. It sounds great straight out the box, but even better as it ages! This is a superb investment in a guitar that just gets warmer and sweeter with time. A Select Mahogany neck employs a comfortable 1960s SlimTaper D-profile, supremely easy to fret and sit with for longer sessions. Glued to the body via a Dovetail joint, it holds its tune reliably and offers plenty of structural support. A standard 24.75" scale length will adapt to almost every player, with a Rosewood fingerboard with vintage style pearloid Trapezoid inlays just like the original models.
Additional appointments include 5-ply Ivory/Black body binding, while the Select Mahogany back has single ply Ivory binding. The pickguard is imitation tortoise with the 60s era E metal logo. The EJ-160Es bridge is made from Rosewood and has the reverse belly design familiar to J-160E Collector runs, and features a compensated bone saddle.
Rest assured that these Limited Run re-issues won't be around forever, in stock at PMT for a limited time only! Pop into your local store to try this timeless classic - the only guitar to appear on every Beatles album from Please Please Me through to Abbey Road!
