At the minute i got a natural Yamaha apx 500

Is it worth selling it and getting me a epi ej200?

i don't see the ej200 having a pickup or is this on higher spec models?

Really fancy a change but not sure it is worth the hassle.

Cheers

The EJ200 is a standard acoustic, the EJ200CE (cutaway electric) can be plugged directly into an amp. I've never played either of them so I can't comment on their quality.

It really depends on what you will be using it for. I bought a semi-acoustic guitar (not Epiphone) and an acoustic amp years ago for rehearsing and recording in a studio but I've never needed to plug it in at home.

cool thanks for pointing out the CE model.. this is another thing too, a lot of ppl rather mic up an acoustic rather than connect it to an amp. really all i do is take it work and play at work, the odd open mic night (usually play through the PA) and using it in my bedroom. if it sounded nicer then i think i would consider it. guess i better find a decent local music shop which has one in stock. anyone know one in bucks?

Hey yeah, I've had a EJ200CE since ..late 2008, it's fairly decent actually, you may have to tighten things up when you get it, mine took a bit of work to get it right when you plug it in, but when you do it's on the money. Side note, my dad plays a Tanglewood semi, f**king beautiful sound, but i recommend anyway.

I have an EJ200 but im not a fan of the CE version. Noel used an LR Baggs m1 active pickup on his Gibson J200 so I would advise getting that one if your looking for Oasis gear. I have the m1 on my EJ200 and it sounds top however you will have to dish out some money for it, best bet is to look on ebay. After you install the LR Baggs it will connect to an amp no problem and sound amazing.
