Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-45ME Acoustic-Electric Guitar, Vintage Sunburst, W/GigbagEpiphone
My name is Randy Lemaster . My wife and I own Nashvilleguitarstore.com. I’ve owned and played a lot of guitars over the past 55 years. That doesn’t make me an expert, but I do know what a quality guitar feels and sounds like. I do my best to buy quality guitars and sell them for a fair price. Buying a guitar on-line can be stressful, so please take a moment and read some of the NGS reviews and see what our customers have to say about our instruments and their buying experience. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this listing, or any other question you might have.
When it comes to acoustic guitar tone and quality, nothing performs like an all-solid wood instrument. Harking back to the 1930's and our heritage as masters of acoustic guitar design, the Epiphone Masterbilt Collection combines traditional construction methods and historic features with premium all solid tone woods to bring you a new "vintage" instrument with deep rich lows, shimmering highs and a balanced mid-range. 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.
Condition: This is a manufacturer's refurbished guitar. It is not a used guitar, nor is it a 2nd. It is a new guitar sold by the manufacturer to a distributor. There no repairs made to this guitar. It was simply inspected, adjusted and made ready for sale by certified guitar technicians. The neck is straight and the action is conducive to playing any style of music. There is a minor flaw in the binding on the face of the guitar that can be felt and seen upon very close inspection, see picture. Otherwise the guitar plays, looks and sounds great with the current set-up! All electronics are in perfect working order. At the request of the manufacturer, the back of the headstock was stamped USED and the original serial # has been replaced with a new one. The guitar pictured in this listing is the guitar that will be shipped when purchased.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
