Next to it is a dirty and sad looking Epiphone Les Paul standard (as in my new guitar) for £79 I ask the assistant can I try the guitar she says some of the paint is off the back of that one (buckle rash) thats why its cheaper.

  21. Hello All. I played a Epiphone EJ 200 in my local music store today and I was very impressed with the guitars looks tone and action. The price was £219 so it also seems to be great value. Just wondered what you folk think of the ej-200. p.s. The salesman in the store also let me play a Gibson J 200 (true vintage) at £2,299 I did'nt know I looked like a rich man. It was a beautiful guitar but over ten times the price of the Epiphone , I dont thik so.
