Epiphone AJ-220S Solid Top Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst
Epiphone AJ-220S Solid Top Acoustic Guitar. Classic Advanced Jumbo acoustic with new Mahogany Burst Finish
For over 70 years the classic “Advanced Jumbo” acoustic with its iconic “bell” shape, rich tone, and exceptional volume, has been the favored rhythm guitar for all style of musicians. The Epiphone AJ-220S features a Solid Sitka Spruce top or a Solid Mahogany top in a new Mahogany Burst finish along with a Solid Mahogany neck and Epiphone’s Lifetime Guarantee.
Solid Top, Exceptional Tone: The Epiphone AJ-220S is modeled after the classic “Advanced Jumbo” acoustic guitar first introduced in the 1930s that featured a unique “X” bracing that allowed the top to resonate with a more balanced tone and greater volume than any acoustic guitar of its generation. Like vintage “AJ” style instruments, the modern AJ-220S is made with a Solid Sitka Spruce top (Vintage Sunburst and Natural finishes) as well as a new solid Mahogany top with a Mahogany Burst Finish. Over time and with playing hours, both the Solid Sitka Spruce and Mahogany guitars will develop their own unique character as the wood gradually ages, making the AJ-220S an instrument that you can enjoy for life. The Solid Mahogany neck is glued to the body with a traditional Dovetail Joint and features a SlimTaper™ C-profile with a 25.5” scale length, 20 medium jumbo frets, and a Granadillo fingerboard. The traditional “reverse belly” bridge is also made from Granadillo and the tortoise style pickguard has the iconic metal “E” logo.
Solid Epiphone Hardware: The AJ-220S comes with nickel strap buttons and Premium Die-cast machine heads with “kidney buttons” and a 14:1 tuning ratio for fast and accurate tuning.
Lifetime Warranty: Like all Epiphones, the AJ-220S comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty along with Gibson Brands legendary 365/24/7 Customer Service.
