Description

Details

When it comes to acoustic guitar tone and quality, nothing performs like an all solid wood instrument. Harking back to the 1930s and their heritage, the Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE combines traditional construction methods and features with premium all solid tone woods to bring you a new "vintage" instrument with deep rich lows, shimmering highs and just the right amount of mids. While many other guitars in this price class use pressed backs, spliced neck joints and even artificial wood backs and sides, you can be assured that every Masterbilt holds true to it's all solid wood promise.

The DR500MCE model features a solid Sitka spruce top, hand-scalloped Sitka spruce braces, mahogany kerfing, a 25.5"scale rosewood fingerboard and a rosewood bridge. Players looking for vintage tone and vibe will appreciate the handcrafted dovetail neck joint and hide-glue construction. The DR-500MCE also has a solid Mahogany back and sides as well as a 20-fret hand-shaped Mahogany neck that joins the body at the 14th fret that is adorned with carefully cut, "split-diamond" pearl fretboard inlays. As with all Masterbilts, the DR-500MCE features Epiphone historic "off-set" headstock with "stickpin" headstock inlay.

While the DR-500MCE sounds great "unplugged," it really comes alive when plugged in thanks to the Fishman Presys II Onboard Preamp System, which gives you a truer representation of the instrument's voice and even more options than before. This system offers a soundhole mounted preamp with rotary controls to sculpt your sound to suit your style. This pickup and preamp configuration provides a truer acoustic sound without the harshness, picking up the string vibrations as well as those of the guitar's top and body.

With your choice of either 1/4" mono output blending both pickups or 1/4" stereo output splitting the two pickups, you have incredible flexibility and opportunities to create the perfect acoustic tone live!
