Epiphone Masterbilt Century Olympic - Honey Burst

archtop guitars. But even with its 16" lower bout and 11.6" upper you still get a wonderfully loud and full sound that will suit bother strummers and fingerpickers.

Classic Design

Based off of the original Epiphone Olympic which was available from the mid 1930's this acoustic guitar has a lot of tradition behind it. With a solid Spruce top carved with a pair of beautiful f holes this small archtop acoustic both looks and sounds great. It is not all aesthetic though with the Olympic having vintage Longitudinal bracing which gives it a very different feel and response to modern X bracing inspired designs.

Natural Pickup Sound

While back in the 30's this design would have been loud enough to have been heard over any other band that is not the case anymore. Now you need to be amplified for pretty much every venue so Epiphone hid a very powerful Sonic HD Preamp with Nanoflex HD Pickup in this guitar so you can use it live without having all kinds of controls popping out of the side of your guitar.

Both the volume and tone controls are hidden in the lower F hole so you can use your guitar live with easy access to your controls. This setup sounds great through both an acoustic amp or a PA system meaning you can rock up to any gig and get an astounding sound.
