John Lennon Acoustic/Electric Guitar
The sound of this unassuming-looking instrument inspired legions of people to pick up an acoustic guitar. Capable of natural tones as well as some electric-driven jabs, this EJ-160 offers rich, welcoming, instantly-familiar sounds.
Patterned after the Gibson J-160E acoustic-electrics that were perennial Beatles workhorses, the signature model EJ-160E features an advanced dreadnought, sloped-shoulder body shape, solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a chunky solid mahogany neck and solid rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The impeccable fretboard is adorned with handsome trapezoid inlays that are common on many Gibsons and Epiphones. The EJ-160E's neck has the fat, rounded feel of many late-Fifties era Gibson electrics. A magnetic pickup is seated discreetly between the end of the guitar's fretboard and the sound hole, while volume and tone controls are located on the guitar's lower bout, as they would be on a standard electric guitar.Epiphone EJ-160 Acoustic/Electric Guitar Features:
