Description

Details

The Epiphone New Century Olympic Masterbilt Archtop Electro Acoustic Guitar in Violin Burst resurrects the legendary Epiphone designs of the 1930's models, and pairs them with modern appointments that makes this exquisite model better than ever. If it's vintage style and charm that you're looking for, but with a more wallet-friendly price tag, then it doesn't get much better than this beauty.

Sophisticated F-style Archtop

The New Century Olympic Masterbilt is modelled on a small body f-style archtop that offers the utmost clarity of tone to accompany singer/songwriters, and soloists to perfection. Only the finest tonewoods have been employed throughout, with laminated mahogany back and sides, and a solid spruce top on hand to guarantee a crisp, clear, and powerful projection. Epiphone has added longitudinal bracing to support the top, and ensure that over time - and the more that the guitar is performed with -, the timbre will only improve.

The carefully shaped f-holes in the body top not only provide a cool stylistic element, but also allows the acoustic timbre to ring out beautifully, whilst each model has been treated to a vintage sheen finish to preserve the integrity of the wood for as long as possible.

Solid neck and fingerboard partnership

Fitted to the body is a sturdy and responsive neck, which is shaped to a comfortable rounded "C" shape profile to produce a heavenly playing feel. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with Mother-of-Pearl inlays to guide your way in style. At the top of the neck you'll find the headstock, which bears the "Epiphone Olympic Masterbilt" inlay. This sits between the 1930's era replica tuners that have been upgraded to a reassuringly steadfast 18:1 ratio, which uphold tuning integrity with precision.

eSonic HD preamp system and NanoFlex HD pickups

To reproduce the unique acoustic tones of the Masterbilt Olympic models faithfully, Epiphone has equipped each guitar with the fantastic partnership of the eSonic HD preamp system with a low-impedance NanoFlex HD pickup. This combo works tirelessly to translate the richness and depth of tone as accurately as possible. The controls are safely tucked away in the f-hole of the guitar, whilst the jack output resides just below the tailpiece.

If a harmonious blend of old and new is what you crave, then the Epiphone New Century Olympic Masterbilt Archtop electro acoustic guitar is the perfect choice.
