Epiphone EJ-160E Vintage Sunburst
Just like the original, the new Epiphone Limited Edition EJ-160E follows the contours of the industry standard Southern Jumbo acoustic and features a Solid Spruce top with a Select Mahogany body. Solid Spruce is the top of choice for premier acoustic guitars. The more you play your EJ-160E, the more open and expressive the tone – so play your EJ-160E a lot! The body top has 5-ply Ivory/Black 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-160E’s bridge is made from Rosewood and has the reverse belly design familiar to “J-160E” collectors and features a compensated bone saddle.

The original “J-160E” was one of the first acoustic/electric guitars on the market 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. In fact, the “J-160” acoustic/electric was the only guitar to appear on every Beatles album from Please Please Me through Abbey Road. Now with the new Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E Acoustic/Electric, the “House of Stathopoulo” brings this vintage and hard-to-find classic into the 21st century with a Solid Spruce top for a limited time and only through select Epiphone Dealers.
The Select Mahogany neck has a comfortable “1960s” SlimTaper™ D-profile and is glued to the body using a Dovetail joint. The neck has a 24.75” scale with vintage style pearloid “Trapezoid” inlays just like the original models. The fingerboard has single ply Ivory color binding and features a 12” fingerboard radius, 20 medium frets, and a bone nut along with the Epiphone classic Sloped Dovewing headstock.
