Epiphone J-45 EC Studio Acoustic-electric Guitar – Vintage Sunburst
6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, and Laurel Fingerboard – Vintage Sunburst
A Workhorse With Improved Upper Fret Access
The legendary Gibson™ J-45™ has been a favorite of musicians ever since it was first introduced in 1942. Now Epiphone has released a new Inspired by Gibson™ J-45 Cutaway that gives players improved access to the upper frets while retaining all of the features that make the J-45 special to begin with, including the Sloped Shoulder body with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, a comfortable rounded C neck profile, Fishman® Sonicore under-saddle pickup and Fishman Presys II preamp with volume and tone controls, and a beautiful Aged Vintage Sunburst finish. Optional hardshell or EpiLite™ case available separately. <br> A battery is not included. To power your pickup, you will need a 9-volt battery.
Beefy lows and crisp, clear mids
The J-45 EC Studio serves up crisp, clear mids and highs, which is a refreshing change if you’re used to a square-shouldered dreadnought. What’s up with that? Epiphone’s Advanced Jumbo body shape — first produced in the 1930s — has a big lower bout, along with a smaller, rounded upper bout with a narrow waist in between. This bell-shaped arrangement is what’s responsible for the unmistakable clarity that characterizes Epi’s Advanced Jumbo acoustics.
You’re always stage-ready!
The Fishman Presys pickup system in the Epiphone J-45 EC Studio gives you plenty of tone-shaping options. There are bass, mid, and treble tone controls so you can dial in your ideal sound. A notch filter helps eliminate the possibility of feedback while playing live, and a brilliance control helps you cut through the mix. In addition, the phase control helps solve phase problems when recording the Presys output and a microphone at the same time. And a built-in tuner ensures you stay in tune while onstage or at home
