Debut acoustic signature model by "Monster" of Mayday!

Epiphone presents the new Ltd. Ed. "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE Outfit, the second signature model by "Monster," lead guitarist of the hit alternative rock group Mayday from Taiwan. Featuring the world famous J-200 "jumbo" style acoustic/electric with a custom designed pickguard with "Monster" logo, Shadow® Electronics, a custom hardshell case, and a Certificate of Authenticity. Available for a limited time and only from Authorized Epiphone Dealers in China and the SAE.

"Monster" (Wen Shang Yi) worked closely with Epiphone's legendary luthiers in Nashville, Tennessee to create the very first custom EJ-200SCE in Epiphone's history! Monster formed Mayday in Taiwan in 1997 and has since led the group to four Golden Melody Awards for Best Band. Mayday is known throughout China as the "King of Concert" and the incredible lead and rhythm style of Monster has led the band all the way. Now, Monster and Epiphone join forces again to create his first custom acoustic model, the Ltd. Ed. "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE Outfit.

The King of the Flat-tops: Originally introduced in 1937, the "J-200" acoustic guitar set a standard for tone and looks that others have been trying to match ever since. Today--over 70 years later--the legacy of the "King of the Flat-tops" lives on in the "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE Outfit.

A "Monster" Flat-top: The Ltd. Ed. "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE Outfit has a Solid Spruce top with a Vintage Sunburst finish, stylish cutaway, 5-layer black and white binding, and select Maple back and sides. The SlimTaper™ Hard Maple neck has a 25.5" scale and joins the body at the 14th fret. The Rosewood fingerboard has vintage style pearloid crown inlays with a 1.68" nut, an iconic Sloped Dovewing Epiphone headstock, and gold Grover® Rotomatic™ 18:1 ratio machine heads with Imperial Buttons for fast and accurate tuning.

The tone of the Mayday Monster EJ-200SCE's Select Maple top is further enhanced by the classic Rosewood "mustache" bridge and synthetic bone saddle. The tortoise style pickguard has the same classic profile of vintage J-200 pickguards but with a custom "Monster" graphic. The "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE includes a custom hardshell case.

Superb Shadow® Electronics: When plugged in, the superior tone of the "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE comes to life thanks to the Shadow® Performer Tuner™ preamp and Shadow® NanoFlex™ pickup system. Designed and made by Shadow Germany, the new Performer Tuner™ preamp features all the controls you need to tailor the sounds of your "Mayday Monster" EJ-220SCE to suit your playing style, volume level, and venue size. Controls include a built-in Chromatic Tuner, Master Volume, Bass and Treble EQ controls, a Low Battery indicator, and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. It also features a Tuner/Mute button, which comes in handy when plugging in or unplugging your guitar. The Performer Tuner™ preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are not only lightweight, but provide significantly longer life than old-fashioned, heavy 9-volt batteries. Under the "Mayday Monster" bridge is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex™ low-impedance pickup. Unlike a piezo, the NanoFlex's unique and flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics that hear not only string vibrations but also top and body vibrations for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezo pickups.

Limited Lifetime Warranty: Like all Epiphone instruments, the Ltd. Ed. "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE Outfit is covered by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service. The Ltd. Ed. "Mayday Monster" EJ-200SCE Outfit is available for a limited time only from Authorized Epiphone Dealers in China and the SEA.
