Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar, Natural Gloss FinishEpiphone
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 guitar arrived from the factory with a small dent on the top of the guitar to the bass side of the bridge, (see close-up picture) and some surface damage on the back side of the guitar near the strap button, (see pictures). Certified technicians masterfully repaired the guitar, as the pictures clearly indicate, leaving the guitar virtually better than new. The neck is straight and the action is conducive to playing any style of music. The guitar plays and sounds great with the current set-up! All electronics are in perfect working order. The back of the headstock was stamped USED and the original serial # has been replaced with a new one.

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.
