Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500RCE Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst

Written by

Chris James

Epiphone's new Masterbilt AJ-500RCE Acoustic/Electric guitar introduces one the most legendary acoustic guitars in music history, the mighty powerful dreadnaught, to the critically acclaimed Masterbilt series with a beautiful cutaway and two stylish finishes-Natural Satin and Vintage Sunburst Satin.

New Epiphone Masterbilt Series guitars are just as treasured as vintage models. But they're a lot more affordable and available! First released in June 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilts made a big impression on musicians from all styles of music and new Masterbilts continue to further that reputation around the world. The original Epiphone Masterbilt catalog made the 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." And Epiphone still makes that promise!
