Epiphone AJ-220S Acoustic Guitar Review

Thinking about getting the Epiphone AJ220S acoustic? Keep reading to find out if it is good for you!

Epiphone AJ-220S Features

This guitar is a full-size jumbo dreadnought. Epiphone guitars have been around for over 100 years and they have been making acoustics for even longer than that! They are known for their high quality acoustics at an affordable price. The AJ220S has projected soundboard so you get great Epiphone acoustic sound!


The body of the guitar is made of mahogany, which helps provide it with a warm tone. It also has a rosewood fingerboard and bridge to help produce good bass tones. The neck is also made of mahogany. The body is also very well made and has the look of an expensive guitar. It’s not flashy; it’s simple and professional-looking. I like that it has the traditional body style instead of something more modernized (although this is still very modern).


The AJ-220S is very comfortable to play, especially for beginners. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge feel nice and smooth. The frets are smooth and easy to press. The fret spacing is good too, so it isn’t hard to reach any frets up or down the neck. It is also a fairly light guitar, which is good for people who have trouble handling heavier guitars.

Sound Quality

The AJ220S has a smooth, warm tone when played acoustically. It has a nice thick sound when used with an amplifier too! The projection from the soundboard is noticeable from the outside of the room in a recording studio. The bass and treble tones are well balanced. Some guitars have good bass and treble tones, but lack that mid-tone that makes a guitar sound really full and warm. It also has a nice variety of tones so you can do solos with it too!

Value For The Money

The Epiphone AJ220S is a good quality guitar that would make an excellent beginner acoustic. It’s inexpensive enough to be affordable, but high quality enough that it wouldn’t be frustrating for beginners to learn on.

Would I recommend the Epiphone AJ-220S? I would recommend the Epiphone AJ220S! It’s a very nice guitar for beginners and people who are looking to upgrade their acoustic guitar. It comes with everything you need for your first few days of playing.

Bridge needs some adjustments out of the box to keep it in tune. If you are not experienced with adjusting guitar bridges then you will need someone who is to do it for you! However it is easy to adjust if you know what you are doing!
