    Product Description

    Epiphone Masterbilt DR500MCE Acoustic Electric Guitar combines traditional construction methods and historic features with premium all solid tone woods to bring you a new ‘vintage’ instrument with deep rich lows, shimmering highs and a balanced mid-range. Featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top, hand-scalloped Sitka Spruce braces, and mahogany kerfing along with a rosewood bridge and bone saddle, the DR500MCE's historic dreadnought shape with a spectacular cutaway also contributes to its great tone.

    The Masterbilt DR500MCE also has a solid mahogany back and sides, which adds to the guitar's legendary tone as well as a hand-shaped solid mahogany neck. The 25.5 inch scale mahogany neck joins the body at the 14th fret and is adorned with split-diamond pearl fretboard inlays. The ‘off-set’ headstock has a ‘stickpin’ headstock inlay along with a 1.68 inch bone nut.

    The Epiphone Masterbilt DR500MCE Acoustic Electric Guitar comes alive when plugged-in, thanks to the eSonic2 preamp system. The Sonic2 preamp features a built-in, easy-to-use tuner. Other controls on this state-of-the-art preamp include Master Volume, NanoFlex Tone, NanoMag Tone, stereo blend, low battery indicator and a phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback.

    Great Guitar
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    It was as in tune after bouncing around in Fed-ex trucks for two days, the action is low, the electronics are good. I read another Review that said the tone knobs for each, of the two, pick-ups only made a slight difference. I believe that person could've possibly got a bad pickle out of the bunch or they are close to tone deaf. The strings that came with it are not bad, but I bought some Elixirs. I do believe they will sound better, but I love this guitar! Not too often you unpackage a guitar and it does not require a set up. 2 thumbs up!

    Not as good as I was expecting
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I received this guitar and it is beautiful. Opened the case, picked it up, it was out of tune and has a little fret buzz. Not a good fit for me; it's going back. I already ordered the Taylor.

    Excellent sounding guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Haven't got a chance to if it in yet , but I'm thinking about picking up the fish man loud box artist to utilize both of the pick ups. So far I am happy with the purchase just breaking in in the fingers to get used to playing an acoustic again. Good action and great tones out of this puppy.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Only gripe is it doesn't come with a case. This is at the top level of guitars! It plays as good if not better than the high dollar guitars I own!

    It was better than I hoped for!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I'd been curious about this guitar for years. Finally took the plunge and couldn't be happier. Comparable to guitars four to five times the cost.

    4 3/4 star instrument.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    1.received guitar two days after order was placed with free shipping!! 2.This instrument is beautiful without a single flaw I could find 3.The tone is comparable to a martin action is incredibly low without any buzzing. 4.Set up was superb right out of the box it wasn't even a half step out of tune. 5.-1/4* The electronics are not well suited for this guitar, you can work it out with eq between amp and on board but my ej200 has same setup and sounds better plugged in. Still it isn't as if its so bad its unusable just doesn't compliment the great tone the guitar actually has. Bottom line... This is the best acoustic I have ever owned, one of the best value deal out there and AMS makes it easy to own.

    Super Guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I hoped I would like this Guitar but I was very happy to find out I feel in LOVE with it, out of the box it out played all my other acoustics and I have a bunch. The sound is great plugged in or not, I never thought I would find something as good as my Hummingbird but I have and the price is great too, The Masterbilt guitars are wonderful. Do yourself a favor and get one you will not be sorry.
