As part of a limited run to select UK dealers, PMT are happy to offer the Epiphone Masterbilt series. Representing Epiphone's finest craftsmanship, attention to detail and tonewoods, the AJ-500CE continues the rich heritage of the 'Advanced Jumbo'. EPI have employed solid Mahogany on the body, which offers an unrivalled resonance and harmonic richness that you just don't find on many budget acoustics. The original Masterbilt Collection was first issued in the 1930s, and Epiphones luthiers of today have employed the same techniques and methods to produce this quality line of Acoustics as they would have in the pre-war era.
Solid tonewoods, single cutaway and quality electronics define the character of the AJ-500ce, along with some classy vintage-style appointments.
When it comes to acoustic guitar tone and quality, nothing performs better than an all-solid wood instrument. The Epiphone Masterbilt line celebrates the best of Epiphone's heritage by combining traditional construction methods and features with premium all solid tone woods to bring you a "vintage" instrument that is affordable but durable enough to last a lifetime.
The Masterbilt line of guitars marked Epiphone's arrival as one of the great acoustic designers and builders of the era. That same spirit of timeless designs and innovation is still the mission of Epiphone.
