Help identifying Epiphone EJ-200 Made in USA

Recommended Posts



I am trying to identify the date and place of manufcture of this nice Epiphone EJ-200 guitar (see photos).


The label displays made in the USA and a seven-digit serial no. (8206048) which I was not able to retrieve in various sources in the web.


My guess would be: YY 82, MM 06 (June) and either factory code (048) or manufacture no. 048?


Has anybody come across these kind of Epiphone guitars - made in US?


When an where was this guitar built?

Does it have a solid spruce or is it laminated?

Any idea of a reasonable second hand price?


All input or comments are highly appreciated!

I got a hint from the Forum that the pinless Moustage Bridgeof this Guitar is something that is seldomly seen on the Epiphone EJ-200.


Maybe this could be a hint for identifiction or an indicator for a fake if these kind of bridges never have been used by Epiphone?



Thanks in advance for your comments!
