I'm looking for an 'intermediate' acoustic, primarily for songwriting at home but it might get the odd airing onstage.

What does everyone think of the Lennon Epiphone? A couple of reviews online said it recreates the 'beatle sound' well, I'm curious how an acoustic would do that. I tend not to go for signature guitars but this one does look pretty sweet.

nah i wouldnt think so, ive played one and its nothing like a J-45, not as bommey and it didnt sound anywhere like it.
but then again thats why it cost like 600, i say if your ganna spend that much on an acoustic get a blueridge BG-140

they didnt just use Gibson J-45s but they also used Martin D-28s for the white album
but i guese those are a little bit out of your reach

I'm not particularly setting out to recreate the Beatles sound. I'm looking for a credible acoustic guitar for songwriting and the occasional 'unlplugged' spot at shows. The EJ-160e caught my eye and certainly plays well for the money, but my concern after reading more reviews is that it won't sound 'acoustic enough' when plugged in live because of the mini humbucker. What do you guys think?

yah i was about to point that out.
I read the same the review when I was out looking to buy one and alot of people pointed that out, i suspect the others who didnt point it out where inexperienced and it was probly there first guitar or something. the guitar looks nice and all but you can do bettor for the money i tried one out and i didnt like it very much it just looks nice and all. If you want a guitar that looks nice just to have around buy it, but if you want something thats way bettor for the money look somewhere else.

For the sound it produces, it's properly priced. Solid top, proper positioning of this type of electronic setup. The knobs don't hamper the soundboard too much, and the pickup is just above the soundhole. Personally, I like the sound it has. However, I wouldn't buy it without trying it. It may not be your cup of tea. I think it's a good sounding guitar with a clever twist.
Sincerely, Chad.
