Product Description

The Masterbilt Olympic Acoustic/Electric Guitar is a smaller-sized archtop with an arched Solid Spruce top with traditional Longitudinal Bracing, a Mahogany body, and classic f-holes. Inside the upper f-hole is a 1930s era replica Epiphone label. The Olympic is available in an aged gloss finish inspired by Epiphone’s priceless vintage collection in Nashville, Tennessee. The tortoise style pickguard comes unattached.

Epiphone Masterbilt Century Olympic Archtop Features

  • Historic Epiphone Re-issue Tuners with Marboloid ‘Crown’ buttons
  • Arched Solid Spruce top
  • Mahogany body
  • Pau Ferro fretboard
  • eSonic HD preamp system
  • Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup
Like Epiphone’s original 30s era Olympic, the new Masterbilt Olympic has a unique body profile that’s smaller than typical archtops but with a tonal range that belies its small size. With its signature f-holes and Solid Spruce top, the Olympic is an ideal instrument for singers and soloists. Both the body and top feature single layer Ivory and Black color binding.

The Mahogany neck has a full rounded ‘C’- profile that is glued to the body with a dovetail joint for a precise fit so the Olympic will resonate as one piece of wood. The Pau Ferro fretboard has 20 medium frets, a 25.5 inch scale length, and pearloid ‘Dot’ inlays modeled after the original Olympics.

The compact tone of the Olympic sounds beautiful unamplified on a small stage or in the studio. But now the cutting edge eSonic HD (High Definition) preamp system and Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup make it possible for archtop players to hear their instrument amplified exactly as they hear it unplugged. No archtop player has ever heard an acoustic guitar more accurately represented through a sound system before.

The Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup has easy-to-access controls for Master Volume and Master EQ mounted just inside the lower f-hole. Now you have complete control over how much of the acoustic guitar is amplified. The pre-amp system is powered by a standard 9-volt battery that is easy to access, located near the 1/4 inch output jack.

Not worth the money

Product Review

Not as great as I had hoped. Very cheaply made. Looks beautiful from after but doesn’t sound great. Epiphone got me with a great marketing campaign. Should retail for $299. There are better sounding guitars for half the money.
