When Epiphone founder Epi Stathopoulo debuted the Masterbilt series in 1931, he made this promise: "The possessor of an Epiphone instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure." Today, this message still rings true with the Epiphone Masterbilt collection - a lineup of affordable yet professional acoustic guitars made for musicians of every style and skill level. Offering exceptional sound quality, Masterbilt guitars are recognized and respected on the global stage for their beautiful sound and classic designs.
When it comes to an acoustic guitar that combines traditional construction with premium all-solid tone woods, nothing preforms like the Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Musicians in search of a vintage look and tone will appreciate the handcrafted dovetail neck joint and hand-glued construction of this lightweight dreadnought. While it sounds fantastic unplugged, the DR-500MCE sounds even better plugged in thanks to the eSonic2 preamp system. If you want to tap into deep, dark lows, crisp highs and perfectly-balanced mids, look no further than this handsome single-cut acoustic electric guitar.
If you're an artist whose playing style includes a lot of fast fingerpicked rhythms, check out Epiphone's Masterbilt EF-500RCCE Fingerstyle Acoustic-Electric Guitar. It features the classic orchestra single-cutaway body that is lightweight, comfortable and necessary for extended stage, studio and practice sessions. A precision-crafted wider 1-3/4" rosewood fretboard is perfect for easy fingerstyle playing, making the EF-500RCCE a great choice for any guitarist with a preference for plucking.
