Epiphone EJ-160E - Ref 208


Epiphone EJ-160E Limited Edition John Lennon
Electro-Acoustic Guitar & hardcase

Epiphone John Lennon
Limited Edition EJ-160E
Electro-Acoustic Guitar

This guitar is a re-issue of John Lennon's
original and famous 1962, J-160.

The finish is a beautiful vintage cherry
complimented with chrome hardware.

The select mahogany body is finished with a solid spruce top, leading up to a set neck mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard with Trapezoid inlays.

There is a master volume and master tone controlling the mini humbucker pickup which is seated discreetly between the end of the fretboard and the sound hole.  However, the guitar sounds just as good unplugged as it does plugged into an amp.

Shown in the sound hole is the serial number along with the model, John Lennon Limited Edition
EJ-160E and John Lennon's famous signature and cartoon. The John Lennon signature is also shown on the front of the guitar and is clear and complete.

This guitar is in very good condition for a used guitar. General playing wear is to be in expected, and please keep in mind, this is a preowned guitar.
In the interests of being honest, there are two areas that look to have been touched in with black guitar paint at some point. One at the very edge of the sound hole and one on the back of the headstock. They are very minor and only noticeable
when pointed out, and they certainly
don't detract from the overall appearance and
sound of the guitar in my opinion.
The TGI hardcase is included in the sale and is reasonably good condition for a used case with
all latches working. One or two knocks,
but it does the job and that's what it's there for.

You will not be disappointed with this guitar !!

If there is anything I have missed picture wise,
please let me know and I will
do my best to add it to the listing.

Any other questions regarding the guitar,
please do not hesitate to ask.

I will endeavour to answer all queries within
