Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500RCE - Vintage Sunburst

Originally released in 1931, the Epiphone Masterbilt made a quick and lasting impression on musicians across the world, the new Epiphone eClub 2014 Masterbilt AJ-500RCE shows why.

Body

The dreadnought shape of the Epiphone eClub 2014 Masterbilt AJ 500RCE is noted for its powerful midrange and projection. In this case making up the body is a solid Sitka spruce top, a wood type that is known for improving with playing and age, which benefits from hand-scalloped Sitka Spruce braces and Mahogany kerfing, and sits atop back and sides crafted from a vintage favourite, solid mahogany. Bringing both style and easy access to the upper frets of the guitar is a modern cutaway. Also making up the finishing touches of the Epiphone AJ-500RCE is a Vintage Sunburst satin finish, 5-ply binding, and a tortoise style pickguard.

Neck

Joined to the body of the Epiphone Masterbilt AJ500RCE via a dovetail joint and hide glue is a solid mahogany neck with a 1-piece heel, which has been hand-shaped to the SlimTaper D profile. Also making up the guitar’s 24.75” scale is a 14” radius-rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays. At one end of the neck a set of Grover Sta-Tite machine heads, with an 18:1 tuning ratio, keeps tuning accurate, while at the other end is a rosewood bridge with a classic 1.69” bone nut.

Electronics

Being positioned under the saddle of the Epiphone Masterbilt AJ500RCE, the low-impedance NanoFlex pickup captures the vibrations of both the strings and the soundboard, to give a plugged-in sound that is a true reflection of the guitar’s natural tone.

The preamp’s controls are discreetly situated at the Epiphone AJ-500RCE’s soundhole, giving you instant access to volume, treble, and bass controls, and a phase switch, without affecting the appearance of the guitar.
