$499.99

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.

A rock classic returns with a Solid Spruce Top
Epiphone presents the new Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E Acoustic/Electric, one of rock n’ roll’s most revered guitar designs now featuring a Solid Spruce top with an Epiphone Stacked P-100™ pickup and available in two beautiful color finishes—Natural and Vintage Sunburst.

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.

Solid Spruce: The King of Tonewoods
Just like the original, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. 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 has the reverse belly design familiar to “J-160E” collectors and features a compensated bone saddle.

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.

Revolutionary Electric Sound
What made the original J-160E so renown was its unique pickup system and to bring that sound back to life for the 21st century, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E features an Epiphone Stacked P-100™ humbucking pickup at the end of fingerboard. The Epiphone Stacked P-100™ pickup is seated discreetly between the end of the guitar’s fretboard and the sound hole. Master Volume and Tone controls feature Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and pointers–just like vintage models–and are located on the guitar’s lower bout. And each volume and tone control use full-size 500K potentiometers.
Epiphone Heavy Duty Hardware
All hardware like the Epiphone “Deluxe” machine heads with a pro 18:1 tuning ratio, the Epiphone Heavy Duty ¼” output jack, and pre-installed strapbuttons are made from solid nickel and the Ltd. Ed. EJ-160E is set up and tuned at the factory using Epiphone 12-53 nickel strings. An optional hardcase is also available.
