What Haworth Guitars say:

The Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar is an awesome Masterbilt Acoustic Guitar model by Epiphone.

At Haworth Guitars we love this Epiphone Masterbilt DR500MCE Guitar's warm-sounding solid Sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides, bone nut and comfortable SlimTaper D profile mahogany neck as well as the crisp-sounding Shadow eSonic 2 NanoFlex pickup system.

 

 

What Epiphone has to say:

All Solid Wood Quality and Tone 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.

The Masterbilt Story First released in June 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilts made a big impression on musicians from all styles of music and the new Masterbilts have done the same.

The original Epiphone Masterbilt catalogue made the promise: "The possessor of an EPIPHONE instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure." And we still make that promise!

Like all Masterbilts, DR-500MCE comes with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Shadow's 5-year warranty (electronics) and is backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. Break new ground with the Masterbilt DR-500MCE today at your Authorized Epiphone Dealer.
