With striking gold tuning pegs, black headstock with crown icon, maple body, rosewood bridge and fretboard with a fantastic curved edge and pattered pickguard, the Epiphone EJ-200 is simply, beautifully different.
For 2011, the APX and CPX ranges get a full overhaul with new electronics and updated cosmetics while remaining true to the original design brief – an acoustic guitar that's born to be on-stage.
