Well, granted Gibson does love their Americana. The tacit joke is, the J-200, (from whose rib the EJ-200 was pulled), is the least tacky part of the American country era which spawned it! :rolleyes:...

Epiphone just released what I believe they're calling an "AJ-45" in the "Masterbilt" series. Reviews have been mixed on it though. Better to hold off on that until there's more feedback.
