The RE200 from Evans Custom Amplifiers delivers rich jazz guitar tone in a light and portable package. The signature Evans sound has defined lows, warm, punchy midrange, and harmonically complex highs. The string separation is extraordinarily even for chord playing. The RE200 is known for it's versatility. Solid archtops, flat tops, and solid body electric guitars all sound amazing through this amp. At 200 Watts there is plenty of headroom for almost any application.

This guitar has the look, feel, and sound of an archtop worth thousands more! The AAA select Spruce top exhibits tight, consistent grain which you can hear manifested in the exquisite tonal attributes of the sound it produces. This solid, hand-carved top vibrates to create sound almost effortlessly, and the result is smooth, warm, and balanced guitar tone from top to bottom. A brilliant shimmer of overtones brings a vitality and presence to each note that comes out of this guitar, and yet the fundamental pitches remain clear and uncluttered. The AAA Maple back and sides have a gorgeous flame pattern--but if you look even closer there is some beautifully intricate figure that is brought to life by the skillfully applied Classic finish. Everything about this instrument from its tone to playability, build quality, and appointments is characteristic of custom shop guitars that cost much, much more.
