Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
Solid Sitka spruce top for sweet tone that will keep improving
Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the AJ-220S, Epiphone chose a solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a vibrant, lively sound with excellent projection. It also enhances note definition, for a clear and articulate sound. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will mature gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
Whether you play bluegrass, country, or rock, you need a guitar with a full voice that can hold its own in an ensemble. Thanks to the generous body size of the AJ-220S, combined with the choice tonewoods, its tone is full-ranging and has excellent projection. For solo performances and recording, the sound is rich and solid from the lowest bass notes to the highest overtones. And if you play in an acoustic ensemble, the AJ-220S sets a solid foundation that the rest of the band won't overshadow.
Great value in an affordable acoustic guitar
The AJ-220S gives you premium tonewoods and Epiphone's top-notch construction, at a price that's normally reserved for "beginner" guitars. And it's a great guitar to start with, thanks to its easy-playing SlimTaper neck that most beginners find more comfortable than larger, bulkier necks. But no matter how long you've been playing for, the full, robust tone and exceptional playability of the AJ-220S will be immediately apparent. And thanks to the solid Sitka spruce top, not commonly found on guitars at this price, the tone will only improve as you play it over the years.

UNREAL FOR $199!
by Jacob from Ponte Vedra FLI've been playing for 16 years and have owned every guitar under the sun. I had an old beater acoustic for "around the house" playing, that was on its last leg. I read a few reviews on this one, and p... read more [+]ulled the trigger. I got a price match and got it for $180 out the door from Sweetwater. It was at my doorstep 2 DAYS later!. Opened the box and all I can say is WOW! The volume on this baby rocks, and it is so crisp and clean. I keep telling my wife "this thing sounds as good as my Taylor". Unreal deal for the $199, and you may be able to get it for less. This was my first purchase from Sweetwater, and it will not be my last. close [-]

Epiphone AJ-220s VS
by PJ from TexasI needed a new "porch" guitar and decided on trying an Epiphone. I was interested in a “slope shoulder” style so I pulled the trigger on an AJ-220s Vintage Sunburst. This was the only solid top in thi... read more [+]s price range with the slope style offering I could find. Too be honest I didn't expect too much for 199 bucks but what I got was pretty surprising.
April 4, 2013
The sound is actually deep and pleasant with really good volume. The slope shoulder design does seem to project a deep lush sound. The action and strings are decent on this one which actually shocked me and it is really easy to play. The guitar’s tuning machines are performing very well so I believe they will hold up.
I did not expect the sunburst finish to look much like the finish on a Gibson J-45. I was expecting an orangey or yellowish color but it is more of a vintage brown like what is seen on a J-45 Custom or Vintage model. Maybe the color was a factory fluke but I don’t think I am that lucky. I am sure this is the finish color used on the VS version.
Overall I have to give Epiphone credit on this particular model. It actually is much more guitar than I expected. Kudos to Sweetwater as well. Fast shipping and the condition of the guitar when I received it was excellent. close [-]

Epiphone AJ 220S
by Charlie from Plol, IL USABought this as a 'beginner' guitar for my daughter. When she proudly showed it to me I was really surprised at how nice a guitar it really was. Beautiful coloring and finish, and the action from the f... read more [+]actory was pretty much perfect. My friend has been playing an Epiphone 12 string for years, and it's a great guitar, so maybe ALL the Epiphones are a good investment. I play a 12 string, but if I ever make the jump to 6, I'll keep this beauty in mind. This guitar was a suggestion by one of Sweetwater's sales engineers. I've been dealing with these guys for a couple years, and I've never been let down. It's nice to know you can trust someone at the other end of a phone line. Kudos! close [-]
