I saw it in the window of a shop in Birmingham and I thought that it was just for me. Why did I make that move? Because an E was written on it. E like Elodie… and for Epiphone, did I learn later from the seller.
I tried it in the acoustic room and bought it along with a case, spare strings and a DVD.
So what guitar is this?
The Epiphone’s website gives its characteristics.
The advanced jumbo style acoustic guitar is the go-to instrument for beginners as well as professionals. A wide range of artists like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Elvis Costello, and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco chose a jumbo style acoustic as their main tool for writing and performing. The Epiphone AJ-100 is a great acoustic guitar that can keep up with you, and its built with over century of expertise and skill.
The AJ-100 features a Select Spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breath and improve with age and with lots of playing time. So play the AJ-100 a lot! The AJ-100 body is made from solid mahogany and the beautiful rosewood bridge is glued at the precise point for stable tone and intonation. Guitars endure great stress between the nut and bridge and rosewood has proven to be both long lasting and a perfect tone compliment to a Spruce Top. The classic style pickguard features the iconic Epiphone « E » and is set off by simple but elegant black binding.
