The Epiphone EJ-200 brings back the historic acoustic guitar deservedly known as the King of the Flat-tops, the J-200. Originally introduced in 1937, the J-200 set a standard for guitar excellence that others have been trying to match ever since. Todayover 70 years laterthe legacy of King of the Flat-tops lives on in our EJ 200.
When the J-200 was first introduced, it immediately filled a need for a deeper, more balanced and powerful acoustic instrument that could project over stages and radio. The J-200 was a radical new guitar, bigger and bolder than any
previous design, and gave artists in the new American music scene of the 30s an instrument capable of projecting well beyond that of any other acoustic on the marketa fact that still holds true today. Gene Autry and Roy Rogers frequently made the J-200 their guitar of choice for dozens of Westerns, making cowboys and their guitars forever linked. The J-200 has been the best friend of country and western music ever since. The J-200 is the acoustic guitar that every player wants whether on the open range or an open stage. Read More »
