Product Description

Epiphone continues its historic Masterbilt series with the Epiphone Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME acoustic electric guitar. The legendary J-45 round shoulder dreadnought has been the driving power behind decades of classics in every genre--rock, pop, and country. From Hank Williams to John Lennon the “J-45” has been the go-to guitar for songwriters and rhythm guitarists. Epiphone’s first Ltd. Ed. reissue of the "The Workhorse" J-45 earned it a “Mark of Excellence Award” from Guitar One magazine and now the Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric brings two legends together for the first time!

Epiphone Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic Electric Guitar Features

  • Solid Sitka Spruce top
  • Solid Mahogany back
  • Solid Mahogany side
  • Mahogany neck
  • Shadow Sonic Soundhole
  • Epiphone Limited Lifetime warranty
First released in June 1931, the original line of Epiphone Masterbilt guitars made a big impression on musicians and heralded the first great era of acoustic guitars. Today, the line of Epiphone Masterbilt instruments continues that reputation around the world.

As with all Masterbilts, the Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric is an ALL SOLID WOOD instrument featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top finished in a Vintage Sunburst Satin finish. The top is supported by hand-scalloped Sitka Spruce braces along with a Rosewood bridge and a bone saddle. One of the great attributes of a Sitka Spruce top is that it gets better with age--and playing time--so play your AJ-45ME a lot! The 2015 AJ-45ME’s historic sloped jumbo shape contributes to the guitar’s mighty tone, booming bass, and mid-range projection. The Rosewood bridge features a vintage classic 1.69” bone nut and the top has 5-ply binding and a tortoise style pickguard.

The Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME has solid Mahogany back and sides, just like revered vintage models. The hand-shaped neck is also made from solid mahogany with a 1-piece heel. The neck is attached to the body with a dovetail joint and hide glue, and the neck has a standard 24.75” scale. Like all Masterbilts, the neck has a classic SlimTaperTM D profile. The Rosewood fingerboard features pearloid dot inlays, a 14” radius, and 20 medium jumbo frets.

While the 2015 AJ-45ME sounds great "unplugged," it really comes alive when plugged-in, thanks to Shadow's state-of-the-art Sonic preamp system with the revolutionary under-saddle NanoFlex low-impedance pickup.

Discretely mounted inside the sound hole, the Sonic preamp features an easy-access volume control with Treble and Bass EQ controls. There's also a "phase" switch that instantly cuts feedback without affecting tone. The NanoFlex pickup is the only pickup that senses both the vibrations of the strings and the movements of the soundboard simultaneously. So, the sound is truly "acoustic," combining accurate body and string tone with percussive attack. It's like having a microphone mixed with an under-saddle pickup!

Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, there is no signal loss and no "hum" created. A battery indicator LED turns on when the battery is low and should be replaced within 30 minutes. The preamp is powered by two 2032 lithium, 3V batteries and the complete system is extremely light and weighs far less than ordinary 9V systems. A premium Shadow output jack is incorporated into the endpin jack, and the entire electronic system is covered by Shadow's 5-year worldwide parts and labor limited warranty.

Beautiful instrument of music. Problems encountered:3 defective tuning heads, first string change had metal shavings drop out of 3rd and then would not turn. Called Epiphone as 45 days past and AMS said they would not help me. Epiphone shipped a new set of 6. Replaced them all and discovered why it was a constant battle to keep it tuned...2 more tuning heads ,4th and 2nd also defective. After replacing them, let me say, I love this instrument, Stays in tune, and love the way it sounds plugged in! Would have given 5 stars but having 3 defective tuning heads on an instrument just purchased set it back. Still, would recommend this Fine guitar to anyone.

Great sound

Product Review

Not only is this guitar well built, but it feels good and has a rich sound right out of the box. Plugged in, the sound well balanced. Only thing missing, is a hard case should come with it. I would recommend this guitar.

Sweet Surprise

Product Review

Right out of the box beautiful.From the resonance of the first strum to the low low action profile,this instrument responds.Harmonic intonation is perfect.I purchased this guitar to try to reproduce the sound of great artist from the 40's through the 70's and this guitar hit it on the head.I Immediatly started strumming and (Proud Mary came through as well as Norwegian Wood and I can't help falling in love with you,Effortlessy)If you've got the pocket change and are a serious musician,you shouldn't pass up the opportunity and get one of these guitars.

WORTH EVERY PENNY!!

Product Review

I have bought and sold many guitars in my life! I have my line up that I am happy with!3 Gibson Les Pauls, A PRS 24 Custom,Fender Tele! All the bases covered. I had been looking for a acoustic! I ran across the Masterbilt AJ45. Did the research and watched reviews! Everything I seen was positive! To be completely honest I love all my guitars, but this is probably the best purchase I have ever made!! The attention to build to spec of older gibson aj45's, they nailed it! I have always owned gibsons. My first Epiphone. The quality of this instrument and the sound is amazing!!The ferts and neck are as smoth as butter! I believe Gibson calls it perked, pleked or whatever they call it, It is a really smooth and dressed neck! This acoustic plays itself!!I couldnt imagine paying another 1200$ plus for the gibson model and it sound any better!!I love the sonic nanoflex pickup is perfect!!What got me in on this guitar was how its made and the quality thats put in to this Masterbilt line! When I received it, the action was a little low! I let the guitar get warmed up from its travel. I made a very small truss rod adjustment and its perfect!!It plays as easy as my Gibson Les Paul Classic!! If you are looking for a quality guitar and want a $2500 sound for $699..This is it!!I also love the satin finish which I think plays a big part of the great sound!! They give a 45 day return! If you get this in your hands, you will not be returning it!Once I got it and knew it was kepper I got the killer Epi case for it! I'm completely happy! Thanks Epiphone and AmericanMusicial for the awesome service!! Watch the reviews on youtube and give it a go!!You wont regret it! I hope this helps!??

Love it. Classic look, nice sound.

Product Review

Great guitar almost out of the box (needs a setup). It looks cool which as we all know is 80 percent of what we do as musicians. I love the finish and the sound is very warm, round, but clear. It's taken me a minute to get used to the electronics since I'm used to them being mounted on the outside of the guitar but it's easy once you get the hang of the tone and what you're looking for. Excellent work for a upper-middle range instrument.
