The Legacy of Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente
The Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente acoustic electric guitar celebrates the 60s with a historically accurate recreation of an iconic square shouldered dreadnought that made its name with Country superstar Loretta Lynn. This awesome, Antique Natural Aged finish piece is made with old-school Masterbilt techniques, plus features like a Solid Sitka Spruce top to project and resonate sound, as well as Ovangkol body for optimal sustain. And don't forget about the Ebony fingerboard finished off with some eye-catching “Cloud” inlays! Topping it all off is the Fishman Sonitone Onboard Preamp System, designed to provide true acoustic tone while giving you stage-ready performance.
Handcrafted Quality and Craftsmanship with Premium All Solid Construction
Since 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilt guitars have been stunning players with their exceptional craftsmanship and stunning playability. And now, the classic tradition continues with this fantastic guitar from their contemporary series. The Masterbilt Excellente takes you back to the golden age of country music with its Antique Natural Aged finish. One of the rarest models in the modern string of Ephiphones, the Excellente was first released in 1963, producing only 139 artist-grade instruments before production stopped in 1969. That puts it right at home alongside some of history’s greatest pickers like Loretta Lynn and Ernest Tubb whose signature sound has come to embody classic country twang.
Outfitted With Fishman Sonitone Preamp System for Exceptional Performance
If you can wrap your hand around those signature Epiphone curves, you’ll feel just how special this guitar is! With the solid species top creating a rich sonic depth and volume projection, expect your music to stand out above all else on stage and off. And when plugged directly into any amp or PA set up, your sound will stay pure as heard through an onboard Fishman Sonitone preamp to give even more impressive clarity every time you strum.
Unique Excellente Style Design with Eye-catching "Cloud" Inlays
Made from premium all-solid construction, this beautiful instrument has a Solid Sitka Spruce top with black and white binding and Ovangkol back and sides. The original Excellente pickguard provides the perfect finishing touch to the sleek design. The Maple neck has a Walnut and Maple center stripe, hand-set with a tapered dovetail at the 14th fret that gives it an iconic 1960s era "C" shape profile. It's outfitted with an Ebony fingerboard featuring stunning Cloud inlays, a 25.5” scale length, 20 medium jumbo frets with 12” radius, and bone nut of 1.68". Topped off with a unique Excellente style "dovewing" profile headstock (the only one of its kind!) that flaunts the Epiphone logo in Mother of Pearl with elegant white binding - this antique natural aged beauty is the ideal acoustic performance machine for any musician or guitarist who wants their sound heard loud and clear in concert halls around the world!
